These two beads that came out as part of the Vintage Christmas collection from Redbalifrog are so sweet. The Angel Bright is just like the kind of angels that have been popular over the years  as decorations or for the tops of trees. I love the way her dress sleeves hang so gracefully. 

We’ve had our Christmas angel since the year we got married, so that will be coming up on 23 years!

The Dove of Peace is turning out to be my favourite piece, I think. The Dove looks so happy and the detail is exquisite. 

This week I’ve been wearing it on the Redbalifrog ball chain as a necklace. 

It also works on a bangle. 

And I like it on leather, too. 

For putting the Dove on a full bracelet, I found it worked best on the end. When I tried it in the middle the olive branch prevented a glass bead from getting too close which for me threw off the balance. 

On this bracelet the glass beads are all Trollbeads. The red one on the left is a unique, then the next four are from the Wishes and Kisses Kit and the one on the right is from an older holiday kit that I found somewhere by itself on sale. The silver beads are all Redbalifrog. 

Below left to right, the silver beads are Snowflake Stopper, Pomegranate, Gingerbread House and Snowflake and Icy the Snowman. 

Below left to right after Icy are Roses, Angel Bright and the Shaman’s Bell. 

Below left to right after the bell are the Dove of Peace, Snowflake Stopper and Love Lock. 

Here’s a last look at the bracelet. I know my friend Sarah has also been wearing the Dove of Peace as a necklace, as has Amanda the designer herself. It has a large core so would work with almost any necklace chain, really. Coming up Monday are Budding Love and Love Goat by Trollbeads. Heading into the last couple of weeks before Christmas are there any beads you still want to get? I’m feeling a bit of bead fatigue and have decided not to get the Pandora Santa House but might get one bead at Disney World. Have a great weekend!
