I'm Finished - WooHoo

I have finally finished my free form cuff. I'm so happy with how it turned out. It's very fun and colorful.

It reminds me of a gypsy. Fun, colorful, and a little wild.

I'm very glad I tried to do something like this. I'm usually attracted to things that have a set pattern, but this was well worth the try. It was so freeing.

I've already started on my second one. Completely different from this one, which is one of the main reasons I think I'm starting to love this stitch. You can sit down with the same beads, but come up with so many different possibilities. It's so fun.

I'm so happy with this cuff. It wears really nice too.

I wore it all day yesterday, while I did house work. and it never bothered me. I really didn't even notice it. Well I noticed it, when I would look down and see a supper fun cuff and it would make me smile. But it never interfered with me doing laundry or cleaning. So it super awesome.

I'll get some pictures of the one I'm currently working on. It's just as colorful and fun as this one. Then hopefully I'll be able to get one or two done and up on etsy. FUN! (but it will have to wait till after this weekend, it's J's birthday!)

Have a fantastic Friday and wonderful weekend.

Awesome! I envy how you went 'off the beaten path' with this one - I always get stuck in patterns and symmetry - my OCD doesn't let me out of that I guess, lol.
It looks really great!

Thank you all! This was such a fun project to try. And now I seem to be hooked, my EBW challenge piece is going to be free form. Fun!

Meghann - I understand about the OCD. All of my work is in multiples of 2 or 5. But since I'm trying to overcome my OCD, this was a great project to do. It feels great to just let yourself go, and not feel like you HAVE to do something. :D

Maybe I should write a post about my OCD. That would be an interesting post.

love the colors, and the different beads thrown in, randomly. Something it's so hard to stay away from a design... "no, I just used that color!" lol

After you make a couple of these, I would be interested to see how they morph into a more consistent pattern, like you know how our designs tend to morph over time? Would like to see future free-form pieces!
