If you are looking for the Birthday Challenge 2 post click here
I am addicted to challenges! Try as I may I find it hard to pass them up, heck I even host them. You maybe wondering why I am starting with this. Well I will tell ya. I am a structured bead weaver I follow instructions and conform to the way it should be done. So when it comes to being free and going any which way and just letting go, yeah you guessed it, I have a real hard time with it. So why in the world did I sign up to do freeform???
I think the freeform work I have seen other beaders do is gorgeous! The way they make it seem so simple and flowing is amazing to me. This is my third freeform piece and I think I am getting a little better at just letting go and not over thinking it. I am still doing skinny pieces, but I really like how this one tuned out.
I have been saving, Um okay hording, these pewter buttons that I have collected over the years form friends and purchased at various places. So I decided that my found objects would be the pewter buttons.
I wore my bracelet to a meeting with the Gem and Mineral Society tonight and it was very comfortable to wear, I also got many complements on it as well.
Thank you Karen Williams and Mandi Ainsworth for hosting another Freeform challenge, maybe by the third one I will be able to really just let go and bead.
Now please go by and check out what all the other participates have created. I am sure y'all are going to be blown away with the talent that these freeform beaders possess.
