The July 2016 True Beadz release consists of four silver beads and three glass beads. I know some people have already ordered them as they are hard to resist! Today I will concentrated on photos of the glass beads and Friday will have photos of the silver beads plus some mixed brand bracelets incorporating these beads. They go really well with Deep Ocean, just saying. 😀

Here is the whole set. Left to right are Octopus, Alchemy Breeze, Shells n’ Star, Equator, Sea Life Dangle, Alchemy Waterfall and Baby Octopus. They can be seen and purchased on the True Beadz website here.

Something really fun arrived with my beads and that was a special Russian treat! It is made of apples and was just delicious! This is how the beads arrive, wrapped in brown paper, twine and sealed with a wax imprint. The other beads in the package are a True Touch Gooseberry and three True Treasures. I’ll have them on the blog another day. The Treasures are found on occasion at Great Lakes Boutique and there will be a lot of them at the Bead Bash event in September. I can’t wait to meet Julia, her husband, Jenny and Mike!

So, for the glass beads, I don’t have the words for how much I love them. The bubbles inside the Alchemy beads are so fizzy and frothy.

Check out Alchemy Breeze in this photo using my iPhone olloclip macro lens.

Here they are with a shot taken in a pool. And look at the lovely tan lines on my feet, lol!

They look amazing in the sun.

Here is a grouping made with some other True Beadz. I like to show beads in different lighting situations so it’s easier to make a decision before purchasing online. This photo below was taken in early evening. The outer beads are True Touch Eastern Sea, then True Touch Taiga, then True Treasures.

Here is the same group but in the early evening sun. Note in the photo below the Equator bead is turned the way it was meant to be, with the blue side beside the Alchemy Waterfall and the green side beside the Alchemy Breeze.

Finally, here’s a last burst of colour with some pieces of blue glass. I hope everyone has enjoyed these photos. I sure enjoy looking at these gorgeous beads! Let me know if you are planning on getting any!
