This PB has two rows. Gradually sew 4 PB together so that "squares" are created. One square connects with the other. Whenever you want to sew another, you have to sew through the empty hole in their common PB. Divide the bracelet lengthwise into bands. The first has bronze points. The band with the basic beige points will then be sewn onto it. Sew around the end of the bracelet. Then reinforce the areas next to the fastening and add the beige points.
The band with the bronze points. There are six points. Each point consists of four "squares". The base consists of three "squares". A fourth is sewn above the middle one.
The band with the basic beige points consists of eighteen "squares" from fastening to fastening. Sew the "squares" of the bases of the beige points above them as you sew from right to left; one at the edge next to the fastening and five times in the middle of the bracelet by two "squares".
Sewing around the bracelet. Mainly sew on the PB which are located next to each other, but have not been sewn through in their empty holes. When sewing around the bracelet, use both holes of the PB. Add the top PB, when sewing through the points. Sew on 2x R10 twice at the edges next to the fastening between the PB. Thread your way through the "squares" and sew through the R10 again.
String the ovals at the outer R10 and connect them with the eyes at the fastening.
