Ten years ago my Grandmother gave me a couple of bell ornaments that she made from beads along with the instructions on how to make them.

 Of course being an idot I missplaced the instructions and now that she is gone I want to make some for family.
I remember using thread or dental floss, small pearl and faceted beads.
If anyone can help me my family would be most greatful

I researched your issue, and I hope this helps. I found something with a picture very similar to yours. Good luck and I'm glad you want to keep up with tradition!


The first one, the pic is hard to see well, but I thought it was close.


This one looks much closer to what you actually have based on the picture alone.

Let me know how it goes and would you put up pictures of your results??

Thank you so much.

I remember when my grandmother used to make these.  I will be bringing them back now that I know where the directions are...... Thanks for the "memory"

I have been looking for this pattern for years!  The link on this post is no longer valid.  Do you by chance still have this pattern?  Can you send it to me?  Thank you so much!  Smiley

I would love this pattern also. I have some on my tree and would love to teach my girls how to do them, like I did with my mom. I found the link no longer in service also.
