I have really wanted to attempt it but I don't even know where to start!  Did you look at any patterns or tip pages?
Great JOB!

i didn't read anything about it, although i've been doing peyote and tube peyote for years....i always thought there was something in my mind blocking me to do freeform, now i got it!! just take any beads you'd like and work with it...i looked at lots of freeform over the years and that's the message i got...if that's the wrong idea and there is a technique, someone please share!!!
