* watch band

Posted on June 5th, 2006 by maitreya. Filed under Jewelry.


My first occasion to use loot from the trimswap. I was so lucky to get paired up with Lisa. She sent me all sorts of great stuff, some of which is shown here, like yellow embroidery hoops and a bunch of great trim. I used a little piece of one of the pretty ribbons to make a new band for my watch. For some reason, I cannot part with this watch. I have had it for eleven years. The ribbon band fastens with a pearl snap.

    i had that exact watch for many years (though not quite eleven), and i was very attached to it too. i eventually quit wearing a watch entirely, but seeing that one now i kind of miss the old green & pink.

    I really like it when people keep using things until they just can’t be used any more. Everything shouldn’t be disposable or replaceable. Plus, it’s great to have something in your life with some personal history.

    I’ve had the same watch for 10 years and I am on my third band. I stopped wearing it a while back (there is a clock in every room at work), but maybe with a new band I will love it again.

    I have the same watch. For 11 years? Yep, I gues mine’s probably 12. I feel old.

    That’s very cool. I’ve got a couple of watches laying around that need new bands…
