This bangle "tutorial" posted by Nyria over on caught my eye. If you look carefully, you will see what looks like cut out areas with beaded bridges.  What a pretty and unusual effect.

It is not really a full tutorial but there is a diagram which shows how the bangle is constructed on the flat. The tube shape is then created by "zipping" up the sides.

Tension is very important. Do you add the bridges before or after the zipping part.  I think the former to ensure the cut out areas are not distorted.

Has someone done this before and can share your experience?
