Several of the Adventurers on our Freeform Peyote Challenge don't currently have their own blogs, so I'm hosting them here as guest posts. Here's Bette Greenfield talking about her freeform bracelet and watchband designs:

I made this bracelet by decorating the top of a plain brown peyote band. The color patterns of the peyote band are freeform designed as well, and I used the band to anchor the threads. I made this for a local art show and it sold in the first minutes of the opening.

I Googled everything I could find on Freeform beading and found that this was the style for me. I practiced with different colors and sizes, peyote and right angle weave, ripped and tossed, ripped and tossed and I eventually began to do combinations I liked. And still, I wanted to do something different. Enter freeform watch bands. I practiced over and over again until I learned how to work the band firmly onto the watchhead.
I still have not learned how to adjust the length for different size wrists. Advice anyone?
