Jeweled Corsage Bracelets

I've been playing with my stash of vintage clip-on earrings again.  This is the way I like to play when it's too hot in the garage for working on messy projects.  Just give me some AC and a pile of shiny treasures and I'm good to go!
Jeweled Corsage Bracelets
I gathered several of the old watches I've been hoarding and paired them up with one of my other obsessions: vintage clip-on earrings.

Remember these bracelet displays I showed you a few weeks ago?  You can click here to see how I used a rusty old gear, vintage lamp, lace, burlap, and rhinestones to give them an updated look.  They'll be making their debut at my next vintage show in a few weeks, so they can't show up naked like this.

upcycled wrist watches jeweled bracelets
Most of the watches I find are either empty or broken, so the first thing I do is remove the back and try to pop out the glass, but it rarely comes out without a fight. If the glass is flat, I don't bother removing it because the filigree or earring can be glued directly on top. My professional way of removing the glass is to cover it and smack it with a hammer. Don't laugh, it works!

Sometimes I'll use a decorative filigree between the watch and earring.....

.....and sometimes I'll attach the earring directly to the watch.

I like using stretch bands because they fit just about any size wrist.

They're no longer reliable for telling time, but they sure look a lot prettier now!
