There is a new lock coming out June 3 as part of the small Trollbeads Summer Collection. I only have 3 different Trollbeads locks so was quite thrilled to get it. In my opinion it’s a very happy looking fish! It’s designed by SΓΈren Nielsen and will be $64 CAD/$54 US. 


It’s the same size as the Plain Lock. My other locks are the Flower Lock and the limited edition lock that was part of the Stories of You starter bracelet. 


Naturally the fish makes me think of the cottage we used to have when I was growing up. My dad went fishing all the time and we ate perch three times a week for the whole summer. Our cottage was on the Bruce Peninsula in Ontario and here’s a photo from the lovely Bruce Peninsula National Park. We went a couple of summers ago. 

 Another gorgeous body of water in Canada is Moraine Lake in Banff National Park. This water is from a glacier and is a beautiful colour. If you ever visit one place in Canada, Banff National Park would be my recommendation, hands down. This was our first trip with our kids when they were 3 and 5 and we went car camping for six weeks. Six weeks of sleeping in a tent. πŸ˜€

So, I thought I should make a bracelet of pretty blues that remind me of water to go with the Fish Lock!


Left to right below are the Sunbeam Spacer, Ice Blue Bud, Seabed Stripe, a unique, Neverending, Fountain of Life, Blue Fizz and Beach. 


Left to right below after the Beach bead are the Sweet Berries Spacer, Silver Lining, Whitecap and Ancient Palace. 


Left to right below after the Neverending are a unique, Wave of Dreams, Blue Moonstone and Dot’n’Dot


After I made this full bracelet I thought it wasn’t going to be much fun to wear as I wouldn’t actually see the lock! So I took a bunch of beads off to make a mini-bracelet. 


And this is how it looked. This will be such a fun summertime lock!
