Trollbeads Uniques

I don’t have very many uniques at all, but this yellow/pink flower one and green/yellow turtles one were calling out to be put on a bracelet this weekend. They do get a bit neglected as they are hard to match up with other beads, so I decided to make a colourful bracelet. 

  
The Pandora Wildflower Walk openwork beads are a natural fit to anchor this bracelet. And can I just say that I’ve had these beads for years and had no idea what they were called, I had to look that up! 😀

  
The green ‘Peter’ Trollbead on the left was one of those $15 sale ones I bought online last year!

  
Here’s the whole bracelet.   

  
 This is a real mishmash of brands.

Beads 1/4/7/12/14/15 are by Pandora. 

Beads 2/5/9/11 are by Trollbeads. 

Beads 3/8/13 are by Ohm Beads. 

Beads 6/10 are by Redbalifrog.

    I love all the colors! I do like bracelets I see on Instagram that have a color scheme going but I prefer the mixed up colors like this! Beautiful bracelet!

      Thanks Noemi! It took me a few tries. At one point I took out the pink, but then it looked too matchy-matchy! 😀

    HI, i’ve been thinking buying some trollbead universal glass to put on my Pandora bracelet. Pandora is starting to get abit to blingy so I might start venturing out to other brands. However, I’ve noticed that the troll universals are not (generally) as pretty as the normal troll glass which can fit on the troll bracelet. What are your thoughts on that?

    Also, have you tried Elfbeads? If so, how do they compare to Trollbead glass? I like trollbeads for the history and Elfbeads also has very very nice glass designs so I am undecided. I have yet to see a trollbead or elfbead glass in person yet 😦

      Hi Judie, I know exactly what you mean about the Universal Troll glass not being as pretty as the regular Trolls. I also started with Pandora but am not fond of all the bling. Also like you, I have no where around me to see Troll or Elf in person. I’m not going to get into Elfbeads, but you can get a lot of information about them on Endangered Trolls. For me, with Redbalifrog, Ohm Beads and True Beadz all fitting on Pandora I figure that’s enough brands for me to buy, ha ha! I know it’s a big decision to think about collecting another brand when you’ve maybe already invested heavily in Pandora. The Trollbeads chain is pretty darn useful though, since every brand fits on it. Keep me posted as to what you decide!

    I’ve just ordered the Trollbead Coral Opal/Opal Coral (?) bead online. I saw it in your other post and I really liked it – I might also get the yellow ladybird beetle-looking which was in the same post. I’m also going to get the Aurora flower bead because that was extremely pretty in the photo of your other post. You can tell that I love your photographs and am easily persuaded by good photography 🙂 I have a gold chain bracelet (somewhat similar to the troll gold bracelet) and will add the troll glass to that for the time being.
