Who says.....




That jewelry has to be worn on your body? Why cant you wear it on your purse, a beach bag, your beltloop on your pants, or on a keychain? I don't know about you, but I hate wearing a watch in the summer. Your arm is sweaty under the watchband, they leave ugly tan lines and with all the water activities in summer, you can ruin a watch easily. That's why I came up with this handy little piece of jewelry. I don't have a fancy name for it, I just call it a time clip! In my last post, I described the items I chose for my Summertime themed glass beads, charms and glass pearls from Artbeads design partner program. I decided to make a summer time clip. I used sterling headpins and a chain maille base to attach the glass pearls, crystals and charms to the clip and to the geneva watchface. I also like to use my clip as a zipper pull. Its always within reach and easy to read. Thanks for looking! Your comments always make me smile!

So Clever! I love jangly things. I wish my wire wrapping looked 1/2 as good as yours :) Nice!

So happy to have found your blog...and thanks for stopping by mine! Oh my goodness, this clip/bracelet is incredible!!! I made a few clips a few years ago and they surely pale in comparison. What an incredible idea!!! Such a keeper. I love the components you chose - I'm in the midst of ordering a few from ArtBeads as well. I didn't see this gorgeous pendant there though. I love that new Swarovski mocha color - never saw it in person yet. Truly a fabulous piece
