Trollbeads Chihuahua and Mexican Sugar Skull 

These were maybe the two most talked about silver beads for the Autumn Collection, so I thought I’d put up some pictures today. They both will be $46 USD/$53 CDN, available Sept. 9. 

Here is a macro shot of the Mexican Sugar Skull from the front. This is the first skull I’ve ever had in my bead collection and I really like it!

And here is the back. Love all the holes and how it has a bit of an industrial look. 

I think it looks great on my black leather necklace. 

You can use it as a splitter bead on a Fantasy Necklace. It also hangs nicely on its own, as seen in a photo in my overall preview.

Here I’ve got a bangle that I’ll probably wear around Hallowe’en. The beads from left to right are Black Dot, Black Silk, Mexican Sugar Skull, White Heart and Neptune’s Promise. 

Now for the little Chihuahua! 

Here it is from the back in another macro shot. 

It also looks great on the black leather necklace, since it hangs down quite far. Interestingly, after I posted a photo of it on Instagram, several Chihuahua themed accounts started to follow me. 😀

Both the Mexican Sugar Skill and the Chihuahua look great on the Twisted Copper Bangle. It will be interesting to see how the bangle looks after a while. It will always shine up again after a short time in ketchup, though! On the bangle below are the Connected Love Spacer, the Sweet Berries Spacer and the Orange bead. 

Finally, here is a colourful Día de Muertos inspired bracelet. 

Left to right are the Connected Love Spacer, Peter, Mexican Sugar Skull, Sea Anemone, Orange, The Messenger, Pink, the Diamond Bead, a unique, Chihuahua, a unique and Sweet Berries. 

Disclosure: For this blog I may receive some items as promotional samples.

    These two silvers are both awesome, although I prefer the sugar skull as i think sugar skulls are hard to find in the world of bead jewelry ( perhaps it’s too dark for some people ?) I lov the way the two look on the last photo you posted ( the super bright cheerful glass beads) you have the best collection of different and bright colored glass beads !

      Thanks Alex! I really love bright colours! I didn’t know that Sugar Skulls are hard to find in the bead world, so I feel very lucky!

    Love all of your pictures, especially of the last colorful bracelet! I probably won’t get either of these beads but they are cute. I like the Day of the Dead theme, I have Ohm Deadhead and Bella Fascini bouquet skull, will have to see what else I have to go with the theme 😀

      Sounds like you’re all set, Natalie! And I will finally have something for a Day of the Dead bracelet this year. To be fair, where I live in Canada it’s not even on our radar, but the more celebrations, the better, I think. 😀

    They really are great beads! I love your Hallowe’en bangle and of course,
    I am crazy for your last combo. I don’t think they will be on my list, too many wonderful beads on my list as it is. Sigh…
