It seems like lots of people have the teal glass beads from the upcoming Kindred Spirits Collection (affiliate link) as their favourites, but I really adore the Chances and Sweetness beads and wanted to try them out in different combinations. Here they are with the whole Enchanted Days Kit. Chances is second from the left and Sweetness is second from the right. I was interested to read about the designers, Tashi, Dhundup and Dolma and you can find that on the Trollbeads website here.
Here they are with a couple of Gold Silver Trace beads and a Black Onyx.
Since Chances has the criss cross pattern on the top I thought maybe I could add in a similar one from the Winter Wonder Kit. The glitter is actually different colours though, so it’s not the greatest combo.
What I really like the beads with is Pink Prisms. Then I added in the Blossom Shade and I quite love this look.
Next I made up a complete bracelet.
Here’s a closer look at the Water Lily Lock, Fantasy Hibiscus, Troll of Curiousity, Pink Prism, Spring Leaves and a White Pearl.
Starting at the top we have the Citrine Facet Tassel, Fairy of Nature, Pink Prism, Spring Leaves, White Pearl, Daydream Blossom, Moonlight Dancing, Gold Silver Trace, Chances, Feldspar Moonstone, Sweetness, Gold Silver Trace, Water Lily Family and Blossom Shade. (Then the rest are in the above photo.)
So, while it’s still early days for playing around with these two beads I must say that I love the big bracelet here. I think the Gold Silver Trace beads play off of the little bit of yellow in Sweetness. There’s a lot going on with the Chances bead but I think the Pink Prisms, White Pearls and Daylight Brilliance balance it nicely.
Finally, here are a couple of photos of a combo I wore on the weekend. What fun it is going to be playing with these beads!
