Freeform Peyote Challange

I have started a Freeform bracelet that has been organizing in my mind for a month or so. It is a part of a Peyote Freeform Challange from a Group called Beaddreamz. I like black, gray, silver, and crystal together and so that is the beginning concept. I gathered the beads I have available in those colors as well as the two cabs I bought in a lovely bead store in Altamonte Springs, Fl and a stone I bought at a stone store in the mountains of West North Carolina. The first thing I did was make bezels for the three loose pieces. It required scads of time. Next I made piles of the beads that are to be part of the bracelet. Not all assembled will actually end up as part of the bracelet. I have begun the bracelet itself now.

It will take weeks before this one will end. The neat thing about Freeform is it begins to take on a life of its own and develops in ways you could never have anticipated at the start of the bracelet. I look forward to this project and will bring you up to date as I continue the work on it.
Spent another 2 hours at my Dad's house taking out treasures and trash. What a garage sale I am going to have.
