On our trip to Genoa, NV. a couple of months ago I found this little antique gold watch case in one of the Antique Stores. No watch, just the empty case at a very reasonable price. I had been on the lookout for one to make into a necklace for quite some time.
I attached the watch case to an element with a the Eiffel Tower I found on sale at Michael's. The little brass key attached to the top of the element. Both are connected to a black beaded chain. At the end of the beaded chain I added large linked brass chain to make the piece adjustable in length.
On the piece with the Eiffel Tower I used Glossy accents to adhere the red rhinestone.
The mechanism to the case works just fine, so on the inside I cut a piece of vintage patterned scrapbook paper and glued in place with Glossy Accents then added another key, a watch face and 3 more red rhinestones with more Glossy Accents.
