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.
