Dagger beads are fun to use. The side drilled holes helps beaders create focal pendants with spiky bits to dragonflies and flowers!  Combine them with other beads and you'll have unique designs. Here are some great inspirational tutorials.  

Many of my favorites come from the talented designers at Potomac Beads.  The stunning pattern of the Camille necklace and earrings tutorial is shown above. 

This Potomac Beads tutorial shows a wonderful combination of dagger beads with BowTrio beads. 

I also love the modern shape of this pendant tutorial which teams dagger beads with IrisDuo beads.  Note how the instructor uses a wire guardian as the bail. Clever!

The Curtain Call necklace tutorial is another stunner from Potomac Beads. 

Juliet of SpoiltRottenBeads has a lovely peacock inspired pendant tutorial

The same instructor from SpoiltRottenBeads also has an easy beaded dragonfly earrings tutorial

I like how this flower focal is used for a wide leather cuff as for this Potomac Beads tutorial.

This Beadaholique tutorial uses double holed Czechmates dagger beads. I like how the instructor cleverly bead weaves the the beads on two lengths of metal chains! 

This dagger beaded focal tutorial is lovely. The designer is MILLAVITA.
