Today I’ve got some bangles using the True Beadz True Touch Terracotta colour, inspired by the landscapes in the American Southwest. One of the best car camping trips we took (5 years ago) was down south to see some gorgeous landscapes, like the Grand Canyon. And maybe we were going to see Disneyland, but anyway. 😀


The area that made me think of the Terracotta bead was Arches National Park in Utah. It contains over 2000 natural sandstone arches and was an absolute highlight of the trip. 

Here is the first bangle I tried, which I think best reflects the colours of the American Southwest landscapes at Arches National Park. 

Left to right are True Touch Terracotta, True Touch Sunset (retired), Almost Rose Quartz, True Touch Sand (retired) and the Terracotta bead again. 

The Trollbeads Copper Bangle below has the True Touch Terracotta beads, two Bolly Wood Ohm Beads and the Trollbeads Pink Facet Delight in the middle. 

Next we have the Terracotta beads, the Almost Rose Quartz in the middle but then with two True Touch Pumpkin beads. 

Joining the Terracotta beads on the Trollbeads Silver bangle are the Bolly Wood Ohm Beads and the True Beadz True Blossom Siberia. 

Lastly, and this one is my favourite, are the new Ohm Bead called Incremental Change (the one that looks like honey) and Ohm Bead Bar Brawl, joining the Bolly Wood beads and the Terracotta bead. 

I will probably look back to these photos in the fall and wear a couple of these looks. We are still very much in the heat of summer though, so I really only made these up for photos. Let me know if you’ve been to Arches before or if you like any of these Terracotta bangles!
