Great tutorial, gives you a lot of ideas and room for personalizing the piece to make it unique. She doesn't try to go too much step by step but rather shows you the techniques to make it your own. Just what I was looking for!

This was a wonderful neckless for my daughters birthday. Pretty much reverseable.

I believe this to be a wonderful bracelet. Much fun to wear.
My name is Ibolya, I live in the heart of Europe, Hungary, in a beautiful little town with my family. Both my mother and my grandmother was very good with handcrafting, they embroidered, painted, drawn beautifully, I inherited it from them.
How long I've been beading? For so long that even I don't remember it... I was teaching beading for kids, and I had a group which was there for years already, they were asking me everytime to bring something new, teach them a new technique, so I started searching on the internet, and I found this freeforme peyote technique. This is how my love with this technique started approximately 7-8 years ago.
In the early years, I was searching crazily for similar artists to discuss my questions, how to start, how to finish? When is it ready? I didn't find anyone, not many people used this technique at that time, so I was alone with my questions. I tried to make my own jewelry according to some photos, and the feedback showed that a lot of people liked it, mostly because it was different from the traditional jewelry. There is no pattern for any of my jewelry, each one of them is improvisation.
When I start working on it, I'm never sure what will it become, a short necklace, a pendant or a bracelet? The final form develops during the beading. A lot of things inspire me, like the beautiful colors of the autumn forest, the blue sea, the green hills, the spring flowers, the colorful animals ...
Each of my jewelry is a riddle, puzzle, challenge for me. I don't like creating for order, because I can't, I rather go after my own head, I like freedom.
I participated on numerous competitions an exhibitons, beading is a great, creative hobby, which is a continous source of joy, while it is also relaxing and calming, I recommend with love to everyone.
