Hello, I love doing freeform beading, and this latest one was custom made for someone.



I am currently making a bracelet to match.

Thank you for your comments.  This is freeform beading, mostly peyote, ladder stitch and perhaps a few other stitches thrown in for good measure.  The strap is cellini or circular peyote. 

I work it in my hand using fireline and a beading needle.  I gathered some of my bead stash and made some "bead soups" of like minded colored beads.  Here is a visual:



Here is a another visual of a freeform bracelet:


If you are curious about how to do your own freeform beading, here is a free tutorial link:  http://featheredfibers.wordpress.com/2008/04/15/freeform-beading-tutorial/
  Have fun!   Carla
