Freeform Peyote Stitch Bracelet

Here's the freeform peyote stitch bracelet I've been working on -- finally! This will be a "drive-by" post, but I wanted to get the beaded bracelet photo up since I have been talking about it all week!

OK, so what's in it? Glad you asked!  I used the following in this bracelet:

  • Size 8 and size 11 seed beads, in shades of blues and greens
  • Abalone Beads (2)
  • Baroque Pearls (3)
  • Sterling Silver Beads (a few)
  • Mother of Pearl Button
  • Lots and Lots of Crystal Fireline

I always find the clasps the hardest part of the bracelet, because with freeform, I don't want the clasp to scream, "here I am!".  So I tend to minimize them, and let the bracelet itself take center stage.

Well, this was my warm-up.  I was looking through my bookcase last night and found my book on coraling -- forgot I even had it!  It's organic-looking, so right up my alley.

I also, in the process of rummaging around, found more of my lampwork -- I guess I still have some I can play with!  And the focal I found is a beauty, if I say so myself.

Well, I said this post would be short; goodnight, sweet dreams and see you tomorrow!
