Argh! I pressed the wrong button on my phone. This was meant for Monday. Oh well! 😀
I covered these beads a little bit in my Trollbeads Winter Collection Live Image Preview and I’m just now beginning to use them. Budding Love is quite small and I wasn’t quite sure how to use it as it can get lost in between beads, so I asked a Facebook group for ideas and one person had a great idea to use it on the Ring of Change. I put it with the Pink Prism and just love it! I think it looks quite graceful the way it hugs the prism.
Budding Love also looks nice at the top of a Fantasy Necklace, I think. Actually, I think I’ll end up using it this way a lot!
Here I’ve put Budding Love at the bottom of the necklace and then the Love Goat on top.
The Love Goat (or Julbock/Yule Goat) sits rather nicely on a necklace. My friend Trisha has been wearing hers on a retired Ohm Ball Chain Necklace and it looks really sweet. I should have taken a photo of it at beads n’ coffee.
For a more seasonal look I moved the Love Goat over to a bangle with the Wishes and Kisses Kit.
Finally, here’s a shot of the beads on a red leather bracelet. Here you can see the heart shape of the Budding Love.
I’m afraid I haven’t seen too many pictures of these beads on social media. I would think the Love Goat would be fairly popular in Scandinavia. I will probably wear it just on a simple chain necklace in these last two weeks before Christmas. Make sure you see the cute video Trollbeads made with a bunch of Love Goats. You can see it here on their Blog. Coming up Tuesday is True Beadz Purple Dream.
