I received this pretty bead as a birthday gift and wanted to try out some combos! First I made an all Pandora bracelet before Christmas.
Here’s a macro shot of the Sparkling Apple Blossom with a Purple Shimmer Murano. I really should buy another Purple Shimmer someday. I’d say it’s one of my all time favourite Pandora beads.
I really don’t have a lot of Pandora beads but was able to piece together a bangle (although it’s on a Trollbeads Bangle as I don’t have a Pandora one). I really love these Tropicana silver beads and have used them a lot. And the Geometric Facets in Opalescent Pink Crystal are so pretty!
Here’s a similar bracelet with my Pandora Essence bracelet and a Trollbeads Twisted Silver Bangle.
I thought I should see if the Sparkling Apple Blossom works with any Trollbeads and I’d say yes! That’s Aurora Flower on the top and then Sea Anemone on the bottom of the photo.
Lastly, here’s a very purple combo. On the middle bracelet is an Ohm Beads Dreamscape in the center, flanked by two True Beadz True Touch Lilacs and then two Ohm Beads Purple Haze beads.
As much as I like these combos, I will likely be keeping the one in the top photo together. I like to have a ready made bracelet on hand in case I’m feeling too lazy to make something new and I quite like it as is. The only drawback is that I then can’t use the Geometric Facets in other combinations, but hey, sometimes sacrifices must be made. 😀 I’m not sure what will be coming up on Friday-maybe the Ohm Beads YFLF bracelet and Year of the Cock or the Trollbeads Tiara, if it arrives today. Whichever I don’t do on Friday I’ll do next week. As the saying goes, variety is the spice of life!
