2 keychain rings (make sure one is bigger than the other)
2 nicely shaped beads
Head pin or looped ear wire (or normal wire)
Micro beads (optional)
4 small beads (make sure they both fit between your two rings)
2 teardrop-shaped glass beads or an hourglass charm


Using head pins or looped ear wire (or normal wire), attach, at 3 and 9 o'clock, one of the outer beads (use the nicely shaped ones), to the big keychain, then to a small bead, then to the small ring. If the wire won’t turn the small ring, wedge a bit of the Sculpey or micro round beads in the big keychain ring at each contact point , to force it apart, just a bit, and allow room for the wire to turn. The wire will then fit into the bead holes rather than being pinched by the ring. Repeat on the other side.

Put the jump rings in place by pushing them into the splits of the biggest ring, approximately at 11 and 1 o’clock.

At 6 and 12 o'clock, attach the head pins or looped ear wire (or normal wire) to the small keychain ring, then to a small bead. If you are using an hourglass charm, tie the wire around the charm as well.

If you are using teardrop-shaped beads, tie them together with a little bit of wire (make sure it’s not obvious, as you will have to cover it with Sculpey). Using Sculpey, make a disk around the hourglass charm or the teardrop-shaped beads, making sure to cover the wire with Sculpey if using the latter. Make sure your disc is just small enough to fit in between the small beads attached to the pins or wire, and that the Sculpey completely covers the wire/pins.

If the wire won’t turn the hourglass disc, wedge a bit of the Sculpey or micro round beads in the small keychain ring at each contact point, to force it apart, just a bit, and allow room for the wire to turn.

Carefully apply a layer of Sculpey over the keychain rings (fill the splits likewise) and in the space between the smallest ring an the charm or teardrop-shaped beads.

Bake according to the package instructions, then make the final retouches if necessary.

Finish off your timeturner by adding a bit of glitter.

Please note that the patterns and tutorials you find here have been designed by Harry Potter fans all over the Internet. The authors alone hold the copyrights and licences to these patterns and tutorials, which means you CANNOT use their patterns to make something that you will sell to others afterwards. You can use them to make things for yourself. You can make some for your friends and ask them to pay for supplies. You CANNOT, however, ask them to pay you to do it as though you had created this pattern by yourself, or try to sell you crafts to a local store.

Think about it. Would you take a Prisoner of Azkaban book, photocopy it, put your name in big red letters on the front cover and try to sell it in your local library? The answer is, obviously, no. Well, selling crafts you have made but not designed would be just as bad!
