I am a member of the Beading Forum and each month the Brisbane & Surrounds members meet up. We have a wonderful day of beading, eating and chatting. What more could you want? A day out with friends and the chance to bead to your heart's content. Quite often we set a "Meet Challenge" and members can learn a new technique or use a medium not familiar to them. One such challenge was freeform peyote using wire and seed beads. We each meandered along the wire with our seed beads creating very individual bracelets. Magazines such as Beadwork and Bead & Button provide the inspiration for these challenges. A few samples are below.
