My Lacy Bracelets in Beadwork Magazine

These two bracelets are published in the latest (Oct./Nov.) issue of Beadwork Magazine.
My inspiration for this design came from one of my favorite ethnic patterns - the Saraguro Hojas, which is basically done using modified brick stitch technique.

Check out Kerrie Slade's project on p.74 in this issue - a colorful, stunning Peacock necklace. You can also see many other of Kerrie's beautiful designs on her site.


  1. I have dog eared this very article! I love the design. I made the "dragon" for my nephew, wow, what a lot of work but I made it for my nephew and he loves each his own. Her designs are wonderful. Thank you for sharing your patterns in Beadwork. I love the magazine.

  2. Your bracelets look beautiful Smadar - I can't wait to receive my copy of the magazine!
