Fourth Freeform Peyote Bracelet

Just finished this freeform bracelet. I actually started this one before the other three. This one is made a bit different - I did the peyote band then put it on a wire base and finished it. This was my first try at something like this and I think I like just a regular peyote freeform bracelet better (with no wire base) - as this is somewhat stiff. I would also need to rethink the clasp if I did another one like this. It is made using 18 gague wire and seed beads size 6 and 8.

Third Freeform Peyote Bracelet

This is the start that I did up in PA during the week.

This is the finished bracelet. I like doing these but am unsure when they are finished. This one is quite unusual and very beautiful - I like it a lot.
