Hello, I thought I would share my freeform beaded necklace.  My inspiration was a challenge to make a wedding jewelry piece.  I love to work freeform style, and concentrate on creating texture and interest within the piece.  Any other freeform beaders here?

Wow!! I love how elegant it looks.
I can easily imagine this being worn by a bride.

Beautiful!

What do you mean by freeform? Do you literally just figure it out as you go, or do your own pattern?

No Pattern... it just evolves as I make it.  I usually consider texture and color when I create a piece.

I love this! It looks like some ancient necklace, rescued from a drowning ship after hundreds and hundreds of years... Or maybe like something a water nymph would wear. It's gorgeous.

I've done a little beading, but I have never tried free form.  You're work is so organic looking, and so beautiful.  I hope someday to do half as well as you do.
