Margarita Bracelet

Hello eveyone
I have had the most chaotic year so far.
Moved house twice and now i am getting
ready to move back home after 16 years.
I have managed to finish my latest bracelet
 - so pretty and perfect for a wonderful gift
for someone special or for a New Year party.
I used netting stitch with 3 and 4mm crystals,
3 and 4mm pearls or those wonderful gold
druks and 11/o and 15/o seed beads.
The pattern is listed at
