My friend found these bracelets, I guess on Google... how do you think these were made? They look like little seed bead patches that are connected somehow.. any ideas??

Oh, darn....I so remember the magazine those were out of (if I was just organized!)...it was either Bead & Button or Beadwork....maybe a year ago? If I remember right you make all the patches & then either wire or sew them together (depending on the "patch"--the upper ones got wired? or sewn with beads used as "buttons" on top?)
It's 12:38am my time--I am SOOOO not coherent!
off to bed...doubt that helped at ALL!

Yes, it puts me on some sort of track, anyway. :)

oh! those are wonderful! I've actually had something like that going on in my head for awhile and that was exactly my plan - to bead the pieces parts and then lay them out and sew them together!

For something similar looking but not exactly the same, check this out:

Great bracelets. I also love the one in the link. Now I guess I will have to learn something other than the square stitch. I have enough trouble with that one! :wink2:

Those look like Jeanette Cook's bracelets. Paula
