As seen on my previous blog post, the Trollbeads Twisted Bangles (Sept. 9) will come in copper for $55 USD/$63 CDN and in silver for $105 USD/$121 CDN. Today I have a few pictures of them with beads on, old and new. The sizing is consistent with the current, smooth bangles. Stoppers/spacers fit on just like the smooth bangles. They glide on just as easily and stay secure. The Twisted Silver Bangle is 9.6 g as opposed to 12.4 g for the smooth bangle. The Twisted Copper Bangle is 8.6 g as opposed to 11.10 g for the smooth, so they are slightly lighter in weight, but that’s reflected in the prices.
Below, the beads from left to right are called Quiet Flower, Symphony of Hearts, Soul of Waves, Rise Together and Pumpkin Ornament.
Here I’ve got an all metal set.
On the Silver Twisted Bangle are the Sweet Berries Spacer in the middle with two Smile of Stars. On the Copper Twisted Bangle are the Sunbeam Spacer, the New Mexican Sugar Skull and the Dot to Dot Spacer.
Below are some pretty beads on the Silver Twisted Bangle. On the bottom is the new Nature Friendship, Sea Anemone and the new Soul of Waves. Man, I need to learn the names of these new ones so I’m not looking them up each time! 😀
Lastly, here is a bangle starring the gorgeous Calcite Rock. My, how I love the various colours on this bead! From the bottom left are the new Symphony of Hearts, Aqua Edge Triangle, the Calcite Rock, Aqua Edge Pumpkin and the new Rise Together. I really like these new openwork style silver beads. To me they seem modern and I like how they don’t add much weight to a bracelet.
Hope this helps someone to decide whether or not they want to buy these bangles! I will be without easy access to the Internet for a few days so won’t be able to answer comments as quickly as usual but have a blog post of the Mexican Sugar Skull and Chihuahua scheduled for Thursday.
