This is my first ever entry into the a Monthy challenge - the theme is "A Midsummer Nights Dream"

I took this as an opportunity to use up some of those blue beads that seem to be more abundant than any other color of bead I have.
It was a lot of fun making this bracelet...freeform is just picking up the needle and seeing what happens!
I used about 16 different colors, including delica seed beads, toho seed beads, swarovski crystals, bugle beads, and a few glass beads. A beaded toggle clasp blends seamlessly into the design, and the focal cabochon is an abalone/paula shell, encased in woven seed beads.

That is absolutely beautiful!!  If I tried to do anything freeform, it would look all wonky.  I like that it still looks perfectly balanced.  Great work!
