Freeform Beading WIP

The last few nights, I have been working on a freeform beaded project. Here is the base (for you beading fans, I have used the herringbone stitch with a 2 row ladder base):


Followed by the freeform beading:


This will end up eventually as a bracelet or as part of a necklace. I am working on a series of projects that will eventually wind up being for sale.

Btw, here is another post about freeform beading:

  1. Oooh, pretty! Rumour has it that a bead shop is opening upstairs from my LQS. I am pretty excited about that even though I have never beaded anything. They are just so gorgeous to look at.

  2. Beads and quilts go good together!!

    Update: That one blue glass donut bead was screaming it didn’t belong, so being the anal person I am, I cut all the beads off to start over. Go look at it and tell me I’m right! LOL

    Note to Vicki, the idea was my own. I was doing some freeform crochet and why couldn’t I freeform bead, too?? The green freeform necklace I made for Ronda was my inspiration.

  3. It’s beautiful, and as Sharon above said, the colors really pop !
    I just can’t wait to see the finished piece !

      • Your freeform work is so so beautiful, wish I was that brave to try it! The colors in this one had caught my eye, such a great combo. Looking forward to seeing more of your work!
