A few readers are starting out with Trollbeads and I just wanted to show how the leather bracelets work. Also I want to encourage people to not feel like you have to stick to just Pandora or just Troll or any brand, but mix and match. It’s fun to use all the beads! Life is short!
The leather bracelets are a fun and relatively inexpensive way to wear beads. Here I’ve used the Orange/Navy one. You need the lock and a bracelet, but then can put your Pandora beads on it. I’ve also used an Ohm Bead here. First, put some beads on the ends with the metal bits.
Then, fasten the small side of the lock to the two metal ends.
Wrap the bracelet twice around your wrist and fasten with the big part of the lock. Feel free to cut some of the leather off to make it fit better. You can see that I’ve cut a couple of the holes off.
Move the beads around a bit until you like the arrangement and voila!
All brands of beads also fit on the chain. I’ve got a couple of True Beadz along with some Pandora and Troll beads on this bracelet.
Even though the cores are all different sizes I really don’t notice that while wearing the bracelet. Tune in tomorrow for a feature on the Ring of Change by Trollbeads. It’s the ring where you can put a bead on it and is surprisingly comfortable!
Disclosure: On this blog some beads that I use I have received as samples. Nothing on today’s entry, but tomorrow for sure.
Thanks for the directions and information, I love the blue and orange bracelet, you know how I love that combination but, the beads you have chosen are perfect together. Now I will definitely be looking to invest in a leather one soon, as they offer so many beautiful colour options. I can’t wait to read your blog tomorrow as I am so intrigued by the Ring of Change, I’ve see some images on-line and know I want one, but will wait to see what you reveal!
Glad to help Sarah! I’ve been wearing the ring all day and James took some actions shots for me-cutting an apple, playing oboe, etc. It’s super comfortable!

I’m glad you are getting sent beads to sample! I know you must be helping business, I know I buy more beads now using your pictures and reviews as a guide. Its so hard to judge what different combos will look like off their website pictures. I need action shots! You do a brilliant job and I think your photography gets better every blog! Thanks Martha!!!
Mandy, thank you SO much for your encouraging words! I’m so happy that my pictures can help with bead buying decisions. I’ve been ridiculously excited the past few days with some bead mail and I think the readers will be happy to see some different beads! There are only so many ways I can make up combos with my own beads, ha ha!
On Saturday I’m driving down to the USA for a Trollbeads event and will take some pictures for Sunday’s blog post. I hope to give people a feel for what it’s like to be at an event! I’ve never been to one myself. 😀
Oh that is very exciting! I can’t wait to see!
