A friend of mine visited me this past weekend,, She gifted me with a watch that she handmade the band for it. IT is called male-chain,, She has many designs( patterns she uses,, But this particular pattern she made up as she went along.. Sorry I didn't get a picture of the clasping,, It's a 'T' that I loop thru a Ring,, this band is loose like a bracelet would be,, I love it!!
She also does bead work in the form of Traditional American Indian Beading,, She makes herself and Family earrings, and necklaces, and Bracelets made of Sterling Silver, turquoise. mother of pearl, eye of tiger,White buffalo, and many many more beautiful stones, she designs and cast and finishes her own sterling silver settings for everything she needs for stones,, Her son does Wire wrapping with Authentic American Indian designs,, following Customs taught by her Elders,,

This is the male-chain watch band she made me,,
