Dragon Eyes Mystery 

I bought this Dragon Eyes Mystery True Beadz at the Bead Bash as there were several beauties to choose from. I love the depth of the indigo colours and where the air bubbles are placed. 

Of course, it looks fab surrounded by True Touch Sky Blue beads. 

Then I added in some True Touch Lilacs. 

So I thought why not add some more purple beads. 

Clockwise from the top right are Touch Lilac, Almost Amethyst, Taste Lilac, Lilac, Touch Sky Blue, Dragon Eyes Mystery, Touch Sky Blue, 3 Roses, Air Lilac, a Treasure and Touch Lilac. 

Here is a bangle which is a bit busy looking but I think it’s also interesting. Top to bottom are Alchemy Waterfall, Lotus, Dragon Eyes Mystery, True Beadz 2016, a Treasure, Shells n’ Star and Alchemy Breeze. 

After I took these photos I thought, wow, that’s a few different looks with only using True Beadz! So I looked in my bead box and found a couple of non-True Beadz to match up with the Dragon Eyes Mystery. The Elfbeads Nebula Gold Sprinkles and Trollbeads Facted Aurora make a nice addition to the Dragon Eyes Mystery. 

I’d be curious to hear if anyone else has this bead and what you’re pairing it with. Or is it one for your wish list? Coming up Monday is another travel/bracelet post, India Inspired, featuring the Redbalifrog Ganesha.

  1. I bought that bead at Bead Bash too! 🙂 It’s such a cool-looking design, and it was hard deciding which color to get, since all of the Dragon Eye beads were lovely. I currently have mine on an all-glass jewel-toned bracelet in blue, green and red. Once my wallet recovers some from Bead Bash, I’ll have to give some serious thought to which True Beadz I want next, since I am getting more and more addicted to them! 🙂

    1. Kim, I just looked on IG and saw that it’s on your beautiful bracelet from yesterday! They are super addictive I think, especially since there are the different finishes in so many colours. It’s hard not to think ‘I’d like a Blossom in every colour’ and so on. 😀

    1. Sarah, I will need to see yours again sometime as that weekend is now a bit of a bead blur! I’m working today and tomorrow but will pop into your store on Wednesday to say hi before seeing Macbeth. Have a great day off!

  3. I love what you did with the blues and purples. I guess I’m going to start a Truebeadz collection now! A few months ago when I started collecting it was going to be “just Pandora”.Then I discovered Trollbeads…. and Ohm… and Redbalifrog….

    1. Suzanne, that was me too! I got my first Pandora bracelet for Mother’s Day this year and I already have a couple of bracelets and bangles plus a zillion charms and have now also got a few Trollbeads and OHM, and my first True Beadz are in the post from the GLB Bead Bash and I also have some Redbalifrog on my wish list. And I need to send my car to the mechanic but who’s thinking of that, right?
      Martha, I kind of blame you (wink) for showing us how beautifully the different brands combine!! Love your blog and how you design your bracelets. Thanks for your lovely posts
