Adorable Etsy Shop. . . Time For Beads Review and Giveaway!!!

Oh my gosh. . . the watch Time For Beads made for me is by FAR my favorite watch I have ever owned or ever even seen before!!!
Just look at how gorgeous this watch is:
I'm not normally in the habit of wearing a watch. But ever since I got this one, I have been wanting to wear it everywhere, and I get comments on it whenever I do. Everyone loves it!

My favorite things about this shop:
*These fun watches are all interchangeable, and you can mix and match any of the beaded bands with the different watch faces!
*They are made with extremely high quality beads and each individual bead is beautiful!
*The double-stranded, beaded bands are all stretchy, so the watch doesn't slide around my arm.
*It's really easy to attach the bands to the watch face, with four little clasps that attach to the sides of each face. I thought it would be more complicated, but it's even easy to switch them out one-handed!
*She rarely makes the same thing twice, so each watch band you buy is a truly one-of-a-kind creation. The Fish Bubbles band I received was made out of beads she bought on her vacation to Gulf Shores, Alabama.
*It makes such a stunning statement when you wear it, while being totally functional at the same time! People definitely notice it, and I've already been asked several times where I found such a beautiful watch.

Here are a few of my current favorites from her shop, but she is constantly changing her listings so I'm sure I'll get many more favorites in the future!

I love the Amythest Stone band. . . just like my birthstone!

Pink Bubblegum and Chocolate looks yummy enough to eat!

I adore the colors in the Mardi Gras band!

There are just TOO many beautiful designs in her shop!
