Silver & Grey Freeform Peyote Bracelet



Update: Sold the bracelet this week at Potomac Craftsmen Gallery

This bracelet got started about 3 months ago while working at Potomac Craftsmen Gallery but my heart wasn't quite into it then. I picked it up over the weekend to try and finish in time for the next gallery jury day. I thought I could finish it during the day on Sunday, but I kept on adding more and more beads to even out the sides. It finally took on a pleasing overall shape, but by then it was 10:30 pm at night. So much for the other beading designs I planned to finish by midnight.

(added on Tuesday) I forgot to mention that I discovered a helpful hint for people who are too intimidated to do freeform: do it in a hurry !! That way you are forced to live with the stitches that you've already done, and it cuts down on the indecisiveness that usually occurs if you're not comfortable with freeform. Sure helped me with finishing this piece in time. HTH anyone putting off trying it :o)

Thanks for the comment on my Mayan Cuff - it was a kit and pretty easy to do. I liked beading it and want to try another one.

I love your silver&grey freeform - I too like to do freeform and this one is a beauty.
