Some awesome beadmail arrived yesterday! I wasn’t working and it was cloudy and perfect for photos so I thought I’d put together a quick blog post with an overview of the Russian Lullaby collection by True Beadz. I will be gushing on and on about these beads for some time as I love them so much. On the True Beadz website it says that pre-orders are being taken and the beads will be sent out after the 28th of November. They will also be available at Great Lakes Boutique in America and Star Bijou in Germany. Julia also kindly sent me a lovely coffee mug (full of sweets that my kids have been devouring) with the True Beadz logo. I shall have my coffee in it this morning!
There is also a Goldie Sheep who enjoys classical music!
Here’s a bracelet using the whole collection except for Goldie, who was napping after that long journey from Russia.
Below left to right are The Wheel of Time ($33, all prices are US dollars), Far Far Away Kingdom Small ($40), True Blossom Siberia, True Taste Linen, Far Far Away Kingdom Large ($80) and the stunning new Alchemy Snow ($33).
Here’s a macro shot of the Alchemy Snow. I think it will also be nice in the summer as it looks like the froth at the ocean’s edge as the water washes up on the sand.
Below left to right after the Alchemy Snow are Black Ice ($33), the Fire-bird Dangle ($45), Blizzard ($33), True Taste Siberia and Once Upon a Time ($40). In case anyone is wondering, the Blizzard bead looks amazing with the Trollbeads Neptune’s Promise. I’ll do an in depth blog post on these glass beads on Monday.
Below left to right after Once Upon a Time are True Blossom Linen, True Touch Siberia and Roots ($40). The Roots was made in a very small quantity and I think it has already sold out during pre-orders.
The Once Upon a Time is my early favourite, as I really like the rectangular shape and can’t wait to try it on a leather bracelet.
Here’s a final picture. I know that a lot of people have already placed an order for these beads. I hope these photos will whet your appetite for them! Do let me know which ones are your favourites!
