Freeform Peyote Challenge


Welcome to my little corner of the
Freeform Peyote Challenge


Terrible picture but this is what happens when you finish after dark on the night before the HOP'!  I'll try to get some better pictures at daylight. 

I stretched my wings a bit with this one.  I always like symmetry in my art..both in balance and light...and in this piece I had neither.  Still, I like it.  Maybe it is because it is in my favorite color of purple.

Much love to Mandi and Karen and all who participated!

Oooo, I think I really like this one...good colors and I see drop beads and fringe....both favorites of mine! Great job! Can't wait to see more pictures :-)

Mandi said...

The best way to start is with your favorite color! I love the way you did the fringe in the center, and the flower element on the right is sooo cute! Excellent work, Pam!

Tanya said...

It's a gorgeous necklace. I love the flower to the right of the necklace.

Pam that's gorgeous and to say you feel out of your comfort zone regarding symmetry you sure have got the balance spot on

Saturday Sequins said...

Gorgeous!! Purple is a favorite of mine, too. :)

I love that you stepped out of your comfort in not one, but TWO areas! You embraced the spirit of the 'challenge' and your necklace turned out beautifully. I really like the use of the freeform fringe for the focal point. Great job!!!

Karen Williams said...

I had to smile at your mention of finishing your piece the evening before the Hop - that has happened to me more than once! I'm fascinated by this piece and can't wait to see it a little better. What I can see now is wonderfully organic and intriguing.

Marj said...

Love the colours and the fringing

Bobbie said...

What a nice job you did with this -- purple's always a good inspiration, and it looks like you were able to capture some really nice texture and movement with the freeform. Very pretty!

Kepi said...

Beautiful, I am so glad you stretched your wings on this one...it turned out beautiful and who can resist purple.

It's beautiful! Very light and feminine.
I love the fringe and flower!
And I can totally relate to the fact that it was a true challenge, because you had to step out of your comfort zone. But look at the beautiful necklace you created!
