My mom, sisters and I absolutely love our Bumble watches. We got together
and made tons of bands to add to our collections. Here is how to make them
and some of our designs. We found a little watch face and even made a couple
of bands for my daughter. There are many different brands of these same kind
of watches. Here is a website to our favorite brand if you to check out more.

      Nice tutorial! FOr me personally, I don't like the big chunky watches, do you know if I could use a smaller watch face and just do one strand of beads for the band? That would be much more to my taste.
