Silver Mountain by Trollbeads is very organic looking and quite striking with its streak of shimmery silver. However, those people who are new to Trollbeads might not know about it and I always want to get it out when we have snow, so thought this would be a good time to take some pictures. Silver Mountain is one of those beads that looks different in real life and you can see the stock image here. But this is what it looks like up close.
Here is another one in different light.
It’s so beautiful and different from other glass beads.
As you can see we have a bit of snow. The other day I looked the list of all the countries where my readers live. One of my favourite things about doing this blog is checking out all the countries each day. WordPress makes little pictures of the flags and I get so excited when a new country appears. When I noticed all the countries that probably don’t get snow, like Fiji, Vietnam, the Philippines, Hong Kong, Mauritius, etc., I thought I’d show you some pictures of snow in Canada! Check out our car, buried in the snow. School was cancelled that day, ha ha!
We always like to make a snowman and in this case, also a snow dog.
Sometimes the snowpeople wear jewelry.
And this is called a quinzhee. You make it by piling up snow and then hollowing it out, unlike an igloo which is made by piling blocks of snow. You do have to be careful while kids are playing in it though, as kids have actually died from being buried when a snow fort collapsed. One night when we had this one built, we could hear someone in the middle of the night. We looked through the window and it looked like a drunk guy was laying down inside it! So we called the police and they came and took him away!
Anyway, back to the beads. Left to right below are Stone Flower, Cliffs, Gold/Silver Trace, Dot to Dot Spacer, Sunbeam Spacer and the Citrine Facet Dangle.
Below left to right after the dangle are Neptune’s Promise, Silver Mountain, Milan, Silver Mountain, Black Silk and Sweet Berries Spacer.
Below left to right are Beehive Spacer, Gold/Silver Trace, Sand Beach, Sandstone and the Carolina Jessamine Lock.
Here’s the whole bracelet again. I wore it with the beads all pushed together and with them spread apart with the spacers.
Finally, here’s another combo using the Silver Mountain beads, with a Traces in the middle and the Light Blue Pandora leather bracelet. Hope you’ve enjoyed this look at a special bead and some snow, especially if you live in a tropical climate. I’d love to hear from you if you’ve never seen snow in real life!
