I've only worked in freeform a few times, here and here, but I enjoyed it each time. I was eager for the chance to try my hand again.
For this challenge, I dug out a mix of beads I had originally bought for this necklace. I started stringing and realized I didn't have enough beads for a full necklace. I continued, though, and improvised a bit.
I took the freeform strand and wove it through this awesome chain.
I made a freeform loop at either end of my beadwork and attached a toggle with a bit of "bling."
I finished the necklace with a length of velvet ribbon and a bit more "bling."
I'm a bit disappointed I wasn't able to do a full necklace, but I'm pleased with this. It's a bit funky and formal and I can see myself wearing it with a t-shirt or with a little black dress.
If you want to try your hand at freeform peyote, you can find Karen's book, Freeform Peyote Beading, on Amazon.
Karen and Mandi, thank you for a fun challenge.
Please take time to visit the other participants and see what beady goodness they created.
