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:
Happy Beading!! Carla
I love it!! The colors just “pop”!
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.
Well, you sure do use all of those beads! That’s going to be one really cool piece. Where do you get these ideas?
That is going to be beautiful! I love the colours too.
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.
I can’t believe you started all over. It’s beautiful! I want one!!
It’s beautiful, and as Sharon above said, the colors really pop !
I just can’t wait to see the finished piece !
I want to try beading to make necklaces out of my glass pendants but I’m too scared to start, it looks really difficult!
Beautiful work:) I’m with you on the blue donut, although, I didn’t even see it until you pointed it out, lol.
I’m with Melissa, didn’t even notice it. Love your mix of colors btw, gorgeous!
I ended up not liking this project, so I started over… LOL I’ve improved my freeform beading since this post was written in 2008.
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!
