This is just a quick blog entry as I already made up a bunch of bracelets using the Double Bow for the Trollbeads Blog here. Those were mostly using new Winter Collection pieces though and I wanted to make something up using regular pieces to see how it would look going into the post-Christmas season. First I tried it as a splitter on a Fantasy Necklace. Mine isn’t long enough to wear this way but I think it looks nice and it’s good to have future goals. πŸ˜€ Check out the difference in the lighting here. This photo was taken towards the sun. 

The glass beads (Graceful Sky, Blue Desert and Pink Conch) look different with the phone pointing away from the sun. Even the Rosa Pearl Necklace looks different, which just illustrates how difficult it is to make purchases online, difficult being a relative term here. We’re not trying to get our families out of Aleppo or anything, I realize. (I bought the best soap I’ve ever used in Aleppo years ago, BTW. It was olive oil soap and super moisturizing.) The silver bead on the top is called Freedom Feather. 

The Double Bow works really well on the leather bracelets. 

This next combo is my favourite of the bunch though. I used the Daylight Brilliance and Pink Facet Delight beads plus some copper and silver spacers. 

The silver flower is called Apple Blossom. Usually I wear it on the Fantasy Necklace but really like it on the bangle. 

Lastly, because I was going to be wearing my blue sweater, I swapped out the glass for two Hong Kong Skyline beads. They are such a rich colour!

Coming up next week will be a Thailand Insprired post with the Ohm Beads Tuk Tuk and Royal Elelphant and the Two Souls and Anemone Spacers from Trollbeads. 
Oh yes, there are some Red inspired Trollbeads bracelets (including an over the top leather one) on their blog today, which can be found here

Also, there’s a GWP (gift with purchase) starting today and running until Dec.31 in Canada and the USA. It should be on the Trollbeads website. (I shall go look myself!) πŸ˜€
