Soaring Swallow Pocket Watch

Thank you for viewing our archived gallery design. This design is in the gallery archive because we no longer stock some of the main items used to make this design and we don’t currently have suitable alternatives. However we didn’t want to remove the design completely as we thought it might inspire you. If you’d like to buy all the items needed to create a project please visit our main design gallery and browse our current designs.

Step 1

Remove the short chain from the pocket watch and put it to one side to use later. Open the front of the pocket watch using the button on top.

Step 2

Pick up a butterfly pendant and bend the wings using flat nosed pliers so it looks like it has just landed. Now use the glue gun to attach to the front of the pocket watch. Leave to one side while the glue cools.

Step 3

Take 7 links of chain and add a vintage rose bead at one end, using an eyepin. Repeat for the other side of the necklace. Add 7 more links of chain to the right hand side, and add the sparrow connector to the left using a jump ring. Add a vintage key charm to this same jump ring.

Step 4

On the right, add a vintage rose bead, followed by 7 links of chain and another vintage rose bead. On the left add 7 links of chain followed by a vintage rose bead. Now add a woven connector to either side. Add another bead after the connector.

Step 5

On the right, add a jump ring then the clasp that came with the pocket watch. After this continue adding chain and beads to join to the left section.

Step 6

Add a bead to the end of each chain followed by a key charm. Place all 3 chains onto a jump ring & attach to one side of the pocket watch to finish.
