STEP 1: Remove the watch strap and the glass on top of the dial. Insert your desired photograph and replace the glass.

STEP 2: Cut 50cm of elastic cord, fold it in half and secure it onto the spring bar of the watch with a double knot. Using a beading needle, insert 31 Swarovski Crystal Pearl art. 5810 4mm Crystal Light Grey Pearl onto the elastic cords, removing one of the cord ends halfway through. (See illustrations for clarification.)

STEP 3: Go through the spring bar at the other end of the watch face with the beaded elastic cord. Insert the cord back through the Swarovski Pearls towards the half way point. Tie a knot as shown in our illustrations with this step.

STEP 4: Put some glue on the knot and thread both the ends of the elastic cord back through three Swarovski Pearls on each side. Cut off the leftover cord ends.

STEP 5: Repeat steps 2–4 four more times to make the other beaded cords for the watch. The second cord from left will be with the 33 Swarovski Bead art. 5000 4mm Crystal Metallic Sunshine. The third cord consists of 31 Swarovski Pearl art. 5810 4mm Crystal White Pearl. The fourth cord consists of 33 Swarovski Bead art. 5000 4mm Crystal Iridescent Green and the last cord will be 31 Swarovski Pearl art. 5810 4mm Crystal Light Grey Pearls.

Heads Up ~ See The Swarovski Pearl Colors That Are Being Discontinued

Swarovski Pearls are very popular among jewelry designers and admirers for many reasons. They are available in a wide range of colors and effects that have an innovative, lustrous pearlescent coating that provides a flawless, silky smooth surface resistant to rubbing, scratching, perfume and perspiration. They are made with a Swarovski Crystal core and are always perfectly symmetrical.

All in all, they bestow a refined sophistication to all designs, especially wedding jewelry and are simply divine!

Unfortunately Swarovski is discontinuing some of the Pearl colors and I wanted to give you a heads up so that you can plan your designs accordingly (or keep them for yourself ;-)).

Below is a  list of the 5810 Round Swarovski Pearls Colors that have been discontinued ~

This means once Swarovski sells out of their varied stock levels, they will no longer be produced. In some cases they have already sold out and Rainbows of Light may have a little stock still available.

Swarovski Pearls are gorgeous and the colors that are being discontinued will take a varied amount of time to be completely gone. Some are gone already, some will take days and some will take years, it all depends on the stock levels. I am happy to provide you with more detailed information upon request.

Thank you and happy beading!
