Rose Covered "Pocket Watch" Locket

Is this so cute? I know!! I've been wearing this "as is" to work and have felt a little extra professional for some reason! :)

I stopped wearing a watch probably 8 or so years ago and always make sure to have a bracelet on each arm. I like to challenge myself with what time it might be based on the time I last looked at the clock or saw it on my computer at work.

I know, but hey, sometimes the things we do in life to keep a roof over our heads gets a little boring :)

So, by wearing this necklace I found that I was also feeling a little more grown up. Funny!
It has a sweet, yet functional vibe to it and is VERY long!

I received a request from the Budget Gadget company to review a product and thought SURE! I love gadgets!

I was surprised they selected this one, the bronze rose pendant pocket watch, but am glad they did! It's not every day I feel so grown up! :)

I did add a couple swarovski bicones just for a little added sparkle. When I get a few minutes, I was thinking about cutting the chain in several places and adding some wire wrapped crystals along the length of chain.
I was also thinking the flower would be cool pressed into polymer clay!!

How fun!

I can't wear watches...for some reason, my body makes them wind faster and faster until they break. Same with digital watches. But this is precious--I could put a keyring on it and attach it to my jeans' belt loops or my backpack. Thank you!

I see why it makes you feel so grownup, richness of rose gold combined with gorgeous rose! Tres chic. Peace, Donna

That is so pretty! I love the idea of adding crystals to make it your own!

I don't wear watches either as is makes me too anxious to look at my wrist every couple of minutes. I too kinda judge time but there have been instances where a watch like this would be nice. I'm going to check out the link to see what budget gadgets has

Wow, that is a gorgeous watch. And I really love your idea of cutting the chain and adding crystals.

I love it! I don't tend to wear watches either but I would make an exception for one so classy looking.
