Second Freeform Peyote Bracelet




Well I completed my second freeform peyote bracelet last night. I learned a lot from doing these two bracelets and I am eager to try some more. I think I am going to work more in color families but I need to buy some more seed beads. These first two bracelets were made with size 6 and 8 seed beads - I want to try one with size 8 and 11 seed beads to see how that looks.

Freeform Peyote Bracelet




I was dying to try a freeform peyote bracelet - I have started before but always ripped out what I had done. Sooo this is my first freeform bracelet and I love it. I think I have finally figured out how to do this and I can't wait to try another. This one is in assorted size 6 and dark green size 8 seed beads. It also has a handmade peyote toggle.

Second Bumps Bracelet



This is the second "Bumps in the Road" bracelet I have completed. I took these photos with my old camera and the color is not quite right. The center beads look purple - they are cobalt blue and the connecting 11 seed beads are silver not grey like in the images. I will take some more photos with my new camera when I get back from vacation - unless I sell this bracelet.

New Peyote Stitch Bracelet




This is a peyote stitch bracelet I did last week at my PA house. This bracelet is from a pattern by Beverly Herman from No Easy Beads. It is made with seed beads size 11 gold, size 8 iridescent purple and size 6 gold. It has a hand stitched toggle and closure made up of size 11 gold seed beads. This was my first try at something like this and I am happy with the results.
