Easiest Jewelry Project Ever: Industrial Chic Watch Gear Ring

Watch Part Ring

OK this was one of those projects that was so easy to make I’m embarrassed. On the other hand, it wasn’t something I thought of until I saw similar pieces in a museum gift shop. So total knock off, but easy knock off and at a fraction of the price!

I have this bag o watch parts in my stash . I picked up the parts and an equal amount of watch part containers at a street fair and have used pieces in several projects.

Watch Parts

For this project you need the “guts” or gear of a watch, a ring form, and glue.

Liquid Fusion

I like this Liquid Fusion clear urethane glue because it has no odor and is very strong. The ring form by Plaid, I picked up at Jo Ann’s on sale.

Here are the really complicated instructions. Glue watch part to ring form. OK I left out one step. Pull off the winder thingy first.

I’m sure you can find spare watch parts on Etsy or flea markets.
