Beads n’ Coffee

The Starbucks near me is being renovated right now, so three friends came over to my house for coffee this morning. They were decked out with fabulous bracelets, so I asked if I could feature them today! 

First up is @cherlang with a gorgeous mix of mostly Trollbeads. She picked up four new ones recently in the States and bought the navy leather Pandora bracelet in Stratford on our outing a week and a half ago. 


Then we have @pandorabradshaws with some pretty spring beads. What was really interesting for me to learn is that Trollbeads fit the Pandora Essence bracelet! You can see on the top bracelet she has the Grandmas’s Favorite Trollbead surrounded by Pandora spacers and Essence beads. I think it looks beautiful! 

Next up is my combo, because we have to save the big stack for last! I’ve got the Ohmbeads T-Rex, Metal-ness Locks on the Twisted Bangle, a Trollbeads Bangle with stoppers in between Rainbow Bridge, Wise Bamboo and Floral Wishes. Plus 3 Trollbeads chains braided together. 

Now, here’s the amazing stack that @mcctrish put together! On the far right are her new beads True Taste Stormy Heavens by True Beadz and OHMmygod by Ohm Beads that she bought at the Great Lakes Boutique near Cleveland, Ohio. She had a fantastic shopping experience! She also bought some Elfbeads which are on the bracelet second from the right. 

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I’m just so lucky to have girlfriends who love to have beads n’ coffee! Feel free to check any of them out on Instagram!

Disclosure: On this blog some products I use I have received as samples.

    Great arm party! I love all four and it’s impossible to choose a favourite. You guys are so lucky to meet up for beads n coffee. None of my friends have caught the bead bug (despite me trying) and think I am a crazy person! Lovely to be able to share the bead love with ladies around the world 🙂

      Thanks Debbie! Yes, we are very lucky! The only bad thing is that when we see each other’s beads we want them too!

    I love your blogs! i just ordered some of the multi-colored yarn beads from Spain. what great idea that is! I have a question, you show all theses beautiful bracelets, some with just a few beads. How do you get to keep theses beads on top of your wrist and not end up on the bottom of your wrist? I understand about the stoppers, but can’t figure out the rest! I thank you in advance. Ione

      Thanks so much! The bracelets do not always stay on the top of my wrist! I just put them like that for photos, but they will definitely slip around. I hope you like the wool beads!

    I am so happy to have connected with all three of these bead-loving, clever and funny women. It feels so good to know that I am not alone in my fixation with beads, a life-long condition in my case. Great photos, bracelets, coffee and bead friends!
