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.

I thought it seemed odd to get a second review from you today! But it’s all good for me. I don’t wear necklaces very often, but I do love the one with the Budding Love at the top of the Fantasy Necklace. Well, I’ve never heard of a Love Goat before but that video is adorable!
Ack, I just now proof read it and noticed I had two of the same photos, so it has changed since you wrote this comment! Yeah, I love that little video. The Julbock is common in Sweden and that’s why my friend bought one as her husband’s family is of Swedish heritage. Usually they are made of straw and I bet that’s why the texture looks like it does on the silver bead. Have a great weekend Suzanne!
I love the Julbock! I have this very traditional decoration and it is besutiful! I am thinking of making a Scandinavian Christmas bracelet!
Ooo…that would be lovely!
Budding Love looks fantastic on the ring! I also like using the small beads on my necklace, as you have it, to put a bit of space between the pendant and the glass bead or to finish it off at the top. 🙂
Yes, I need to get more of these little silver beads. I always like how @evepink123 on IG uses Spring Leaves between her pearls. It really makes a bangle or whatever have a real ‘finished’ look to it.
