BSBP 3rd Reveal Today!



This was my first piece from the soup that I received. I recently discovered "freeform peyote" and decided to give it a try



This is what I made with the left over beads. I didn't have quite enough to make the cuff as long as I wanted so I "improvised" I think the ribbon lace up is quite cute, but nor sure how practical it is

Hope you like what I did with my soup and looking forward to next time

  14. Your free form peyote piece is lovely (as are the others you have made, I had to scroll down and see some of your other posts). I'm looking forward to coming back soon and seeing some new pictures :-) I know how frustrating it can be to have bad light. Bright indirect light is not always here when we need it.

  18. Nicely done. The lace up on the bracelet looks great although I agree that you'd need someone to help lace it up.

  21. I love your free form piece. The earthy colors really appeal to me. I think the cuff is cute too. Great job on both!

  22. Lovely pieces! I have such respect for anyone who is able to do freeform peyote and your necklace turned out amazing!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Oh wow! Your first necklace is outstanding! I'm intimidated by any form of beadweaving so you have my total respect. I actually think it's great you didn't have enough beads for the cuff bracelet - love the ribbon addition. It reminds me of a corset. Very sexy, and an unexpected special touch to a very pretty piece.

    1. I am glad you like the cuff, I thought it was a cute solution to my running out of beads, you just have to make sure you have someone around to help you get it tied on. Thanks! Annita

    1. I just recently discovered freeform, there is a group for it on facebook (Freeform Peyote Beading) It is very liberating, any mistakes become happy accidents!

  30. Nice job with your soup ingredients! I think the bracelet is pretty neat and the lace-up design gives it a sexy, corset-like look. As far as how practical it is, you may just have to wear it a few times to make that determination. :)
