I'll post more that I've done later, but for now this is the only picture I have ready.
I made this bracelet a year and a half ago, and it was one of my first attempts with freeform peyote. It took me 6 hours to complete.

I just thought I'd share.

I'm not usually too into beaded stuff, but I think that bracelet is really really neat.

Seeing as this project is a year and a half old, I can't wait to see what kinds of projects you've come up with in the meantime... 

Anyway, just wanted to say I think it's cool  Smiley

Exactly, it's an even weave using different sizes and shapes of beads, and also increasing and decreasing.

wow, beautiful! I have been wanting to do some freeform peyote since like forever, but I just imagine the amount of time (and patience) that it takes and at the end I don't do anything. I admire your patience and your work. Great, great job!
