I hope these diagrams are clear and you will be able to make this bracelet for yourself or as a present. If you are looking for the materials, both Pellet beads and Two-hole Daggers are shipped worldwide from Czech Republic: https://www.etsy.com/ie/shop/TheBestBeadsShop
GOOD LUCK and HAPPY BEADING!
Thanks to Best Beads I got an opportunity to try out Two exciting and new Czech bead shapes - Pellets and double-hole daggers. In this first project, I used them both! And I have already got many new ideas... So stay tuned and watch this space for more inspiration! I am working on a tutorial to this Pine Spine bracelet and it´s gonna be FREE!

There are so many ways to capture the beauty of Swarovski round Rivoli stones! This is my last experiment - I used Miyuki beads around the cristal and Czech glass spikes:
...and these hoop earrings appeared probably to balance out the edginess of the spiky ones :

During the last couple of weeks, I have been stitching rather smaller pieces, playing with Swarovski rivolis again, and trying to shake my bead and gemstone stash and use some materials that have been waiting for me to pick them up up for a loong time :)

I´ve noticed I didn´t have many rings in my collection, maybe because I rarely wear rings myself. So this is to catch up and meet the demand :)
