FreeForm Peyote Watch w Rain Forest Jasper, Seed Beads & Crystals

Image Description
Please read shipping notes before ordering this piece of handmade jewelry.

This watch is a one-of-a-kind, asymmetrical, freeform peyote art piece. To achieve an organic look in various earth tones, I have paired 3mm faceted, black and silver AB rondelles with Rain Forest Jasper chips, 4mm rounds and 4mm fire polished Czech glass in gray with 13/0 Jablonex charlottes in brown iris. The bracelet band has a brass, shank-button closure. The watch face is a Timex in silver-tone with an Indigo lighted face, date and sweep second hand. The face measures 1" in diameter and is water resistant to 30 meters.

The finished watch band measures 7.25" and varies in width from .75" to 1.5" around the watch face. When I finished the band on either side of the watch face, I realized that it looked disconnected from the band. To better integrate the face into the band design, I went back and added beads to create a frame around the face. To facilitate access to the watch stem, I made the frame flexible. When the watch is worn, the frame settles in around the face naturally but is easy to push up out of the way when necessary.

I have included pictures of two other freeform pieces I have designed and listed for sale separately here on ArtFire. If you like the watch, you might want to take a closer look at my other peyote pieces.

In addition to personal checks and US Postal Money orders, I accept PayPal. Shipments paid for by check are held until the check clears.

I do not pad my shipping charges but do pass actual costs on to the buyer. ArtFire requires that I pick a number for shipping so I picked the least expensive, slow-boat-to-China rate offered by the United States Postal Service. Secondary shipping charges depend on what else you are purchasing. If you are purchasing more than one item at a time from my studio, please e-mail for shipping charges. If you wish to choose a shipping method other than the USPS to a US address, the cost is more. That said, U.S. or Canadian purchasers may choose the U.S. Postal System, UPS or Fed Ex. but please request a shipping quote before making a purchase.

International purchasers may only use U.S. Global Priority Mail. Costs for Global Priority shipments vary by destination and package weight. Please contact me for a shipping quote before making a purchase. I combine shipping costs automatically.

Insurance is optional but I accept no responsibility for damage to or loss of uninsured shipments.
