Choose Your Own Adventure Freeform Peyote Challenge


I've finished my freeform peyote necklace for the challenge. I think I have, I mean. That's one of the beautiful things about freeform, one can always add to it later. Here's a closeup of an area I like especially well: 




And a shot of the whole necklace:


It was fun to have a deadline to work to. I want to thank Karen Williams of Baubilicious for sponsoring the challenge. 

There are as many ways to do freeform peyote stitch as there are beaders. You can see the gorgeous things challenge participants came up with by starting here: http://baublicious.blogspot.com/2013/02/freeform-peyote-choose-your-own.html
