This was my entry for the Use the Muse III contest. It was my first venture into freeform peyote. I was really nervous that I wouldn't be able to just flow with the freeform. I am very much guided by structure. I was really happy with how it turned out.
If you haven't tried entering a beading contest before, I would recommend it highly. Just to be "challenged" to try something new is a wonderful experience. To me that is the winning part of entering. You can find the details here for the next contest and see all the wonderful entries and winners from this contest here.
