Trollbeads Forget-Me-Not Bracelet

We have a couple of varieties of Forget-Me-Nots that grow in the garden and the more common variety has mostly light blue flowers but some hints of pink. I thought I could try a pink and blue bracelet. Here are the Forget-Me-Nots with the Trollbeads Mom’s Bouquet


Here’s the whole bracelet. It’s more of a mini-bracelet, really. 


Left to right are the Lamb, a unique, Smile of Stars, Pink Desert, The Messenger and Blooming Sakura. 


Left to right are the Bumblee Spacer, Summer Dot, Smile of Stars, Beach and Mom’s Bouquet. 


These are really some of my all time favourite flowers. Although they are so low to the ground it’s easy to miss them, I just love seeing them up close. 


This is the other variety that we have. I imagine there are some other kinds too. We also have the odd white ones that pop up!

    Your photos are lovely was always. I love seeing the Forget-me-nots up close. I remember always a gathering handful of them for my mother on Mother’s Day to put into a little vase for her. She also loved pink and blue together .
    Blooming Sakura, Summer Dot and Beach are gorgeous together. I almost bought Summer Dot but it wasn’t as pretty as yours, much paler. I am about to go out to the garden to take some photos, but it has clouded over! How I wish I had all of your wonderful beads to play with.

      Aw, your Mom must have loved it when you picked flowers for her. Try taking the garden photos with the clouds overhead-I love cloudy days for photos! The colours really pop!

    Pretty, lovely combination of colours and interesting silvers. I am a useless gardener so I am getting added value learning about all the different plants and flowers πŸ˜‰

    Hi Martha!

    Your mini pink and blue bracelet is so lovely! I especially love your Blooming Sakura. It really seems to pull all your lovely beads together. The result is amazing! Actually, I have always loved soft pinks and blues together. My first Pandora bracelet included both pink and blue beads. However, I am not completely satisfied with the way that it turned out and I am continually changing it around. I think it could be the fact that the older Pandora muranos are rather bland as compared to the Trollbeads glass and some of the newer Pandora muranos. (Wild Hearts, for example). I tend to buy Pandora muranos in pairs, but never Trollbeads glass. (Too much variety)! I would love to find a Sakura, but alas, it’s a Limited Edition bead and very difficult to find. ❀

    I am not yet on Instagram, but will be starting a blog of my own very soon! It's wonderful to share the bead love! πŸ˜€

    Hi Carol! I love pink and blue together even though my Mom always said, ‘Pink and blue will not do, while pink and green are fit for a queen.’ πŸ˜€ I understand what you’re saying about the old Pandoras being hard to incorporate. Sometimes I wonder if I should sell them, but I do still like them. Let me know if you start a blog or IG as I’d love to see your beads!
