Beach Beads!

Today I’ve got some close ups of the silver ocean themed True Beadz and then a few beach themed bracelets. We actually went to the beach the other day, as we live about a 40 minute drive from Lake Erie where there’s a nice little beach town called Port Stanley. 

Below on the top left are Baby Octopus and Octopus. These are just so perfect for any beach themed bracelet! On the top right and bottom left are different views of Shells n’ Star. Then on the bottom are the front and back of the Sea Life Dangle. I love how it’s decorated on both sides, so you don’t have to worry if it flips around. 

Here’s a close up using the olloclip Macro lens on my iPhone of the Shells n’ Star. It was so hot and humid when I took this photo that I think the lens was fogged up a bit!

Left to right below are Equator, Alchemy Waterfall, Sea Life Dangle, True Touch Eastern Sea and Octopus. 

Here’s a whole bracelet featuring True Beadz, plus the Redbalifrog Rope beads and the Trollbeads Fish Lock.  Good grief, I just noticed it looks like the fish is desperately trying the reach the blue glass that looks like a giant drop of water. 

The True Beadz summer beads look great with the Trollbeads Deep Ocean on the Cyan/Key leather bracelet.

Here’s a full mixed brand bracelet. Starting on the top right and going clockwise are Trollbeads Oasis, True Beadz Equator/Baby Octopus, Trollbeads Seabed Stripe, Ohm Beads Blue Hole, True Beadz Alchemy Breeze/Shells n’ Star, Trollbeads Deep Ocean, True Beadz Sea Life Dangle/Alchemy Waterfall, Ohm Beads Blue Hole, Trollbeads Turquoise Bubbles, True Beadz Octopus, Ohm Beads Aurora Borealis Reflections, Trollbeads Ancient Palace. 

So, now for some actual beach pictures. My husband brought along a Canadian children’s book icon called Scaredy Squirrel, so he could take some photos for his Instagram account @scaredytravels. 

I brought a True Beadz bracelet along. 

And a Trollbeads bracelet. 

Top to bottom the beads are Swim Fins, Silver Trace, Green/Turquoise, Neverending, Turquoise Bubbles, Smile of Stars, Deep Ocean, Smile of Stars, The Eye, Neverending, Seabed Stripe, Flip Flops and the new Fish Lock. 

Hope you’ve enjoyed this trip to the beach! Have a great weekend!

    Love your photos and your bracelets! 🙂 I’m eagerly awaiting the delivery of my Deep Ocean, and hope it doesn’t take too long to arrive. And I’m still waiting to see if I succumb immediately to the new True Beadz, although since I have a few packages on the way now, I probably should wait! I love the Alchemy Beads, and I’m going to have to add the Touch Eastern Sea to my wish list. I already have the Taste Eastern Sea, and it’s a lovely color. Scaredy Squirrel is cute – I’ll have to look for your husband’s pictures! 🙂

      Thanks Kim! It seems like Deep Ocean has been very popular and hard to keep in stock! It’s such an amazing bead. At least the Alchemy beads are not limited editions, so those could wait for a bit. It will be interesting to see if Julia makes them in more colours!
      Regarding Scaredy Squirrel, his back story (from the books) is that he is very rules oriented, so keep that in mind if you browse through his Instagram. 😀

    This is a lovely, beach blog post. I love all the bracelets and stylings. With these wonderful beads on the palette , with sand, sun and gentle waves, it is perfection. Now to check out what Scaredy Squirrel gets up to!

    I told you, olloclip has to thank you too! Wonderful photos, I’m thinking buy a new olloclip to my iphone 6s after I saw your pictures!
    Yesterday Julia send me the new Truebeadz collection!!! Now, with olimpic games in Brazil, I received a message from Postmail that every mail will be late!!! I can’t wait!!!
    I loved your bracelets, I imagine you with everything in front of you trying to choose something! Hard work, because everything is so beautiful!!! But you always get the point!!!


    • marthnick says:

      Thanks so much, Carla! I hope your beads aren’t delayed very long because of the Olympics! The olloclip is lots of fun, but you have to take your iPhone case off to use it, that’s the only difficulty. Have a great weekend!

    I love all of your stylings! You gave me a great idea for wearing the Deep Ocean, flanked by Smile of Stars and some blue / green muranos on my fantasy necklace! I just love your blog!


    • marthnick says:

      Thanks Emme! I’m glad you liked the photos! I love the Smile of Stars beads for flanking beads, as you say. I hope there’s something like them in the fall collection!

    I was looking online to try to buy the alchemy beads and don’t see them on sale. The truebeadz website lists them as out of stock. Would you mind telling me where I can get them?

    Thank you.



    • marthnick says:

      Hi Lisa,
      Wow, I just looked and see what you mean. I looked on the Great Lakes Boutique website and they also seem to be sold out, although they appear to have some Equators. Julia went on holiday for the weekend, so I imagine she’ll make some more starting next week! If I find out anything more specific I’ll post it here!

    Gorgeous! Such delicious beach bracelets and beads. Julia’s TrueBeadz are stunning and they mesh so beautifully with the Trollbeads you have selected.
    Thank you for sharing these amazing beach photos with us! SO pretty a setting!


    • marthnick says:

      Thanks Faye! It was really a perfect day for the beach. Julia’s Alchemy beads are proving to be very popular and she is already planning to make more next week. And the Deep Ocean just begs to be photographed at the beach. 😀

    I am in love with these photos! Beach themed is so beautiful! All the different brands look so well together! If I had not spent so much money on all my last beads I would have bought all the wonderful Truebeadz. But some day… 😃😍
    I wish you a great sunday!
