#yellowFebruary2017 and Yesterday’s Combo

This is a bit of a weird blog post. I had some photos of a bracelet I made up for #yellowFebruary2917, the Instagram game that Julia of True Beadz came up with, but they are not spectacular. Then we went for an outing on Family Day, a holiday in Ontario, Canada and I had a different combo. I took a couple of pictures, one of which is really cool in my opinion, but it’s not enough for a blog post, so I’m doing a 2 in 1 today. 😀

First up is a yellow bracelet. It turns out I have hardly any yellow beads! I made this bangle last week, using two True Blossom Sunlight Spot beads by True Beadz. There are also two Azure Bubbles by Trollbeads and Waterfall by Ohm Beads in the middle. The background paper is Gudetama from Japan, which means Lazy Egg. What a funny little character!

Then here are the rest of my yellow beads, which isn’t much! I tried using the Ohm Beads Fireball, but it has a lot of orange, so didn’t really work. 

Below left to right are the Bumblebee Spacer by Trollbeads, Live Free by Ohm Beads, Sweetness and Social Circle by Trollbeads, True Touch Sunflower and Wheel of Time by True Beadz and Field of Daisies by Pandora. 

Below left to right starting in the middle is Thank You (the bee dangle) by Ohm Beads, Yellow Candy Stripes by Pandora and Social Circle by Trollbeads. 

Below left to right are a Trollbeads Unique, Sunflower by Redbalifrog, the Beehive Spacer and 40th Anniversary Lock by Trollbeads. 

For a combo I added in the Yellow/Light Pink Leather Bracelet with two Hourglass beads and a couple of clover beads by Trollbeads and the Redbalifrog Calla Lily. 

I like how the setting sun’s shadows make cool patterns on my wrist!

Ok, so that’s it for the yellow. I wonder what colour Julia is going to pick for March? I would bet money it will be green, but who knows? 😀

For yesterday which was Family Day in Ontario, I made up a quick combo of some random beads that I felt like wearing. The ring is the new Twisted Ring of Change with Blossom Shade and Mom’s Bouquet by Trollbeads. The Ohm Beads Bangle has some of my favourite little friends. The bracelet on the bottom is a mix of Trollbeads and True Beadz. 

Below, looking left to right are Sunbeam Spacer, Smile of Stars, True Touch Castle Stone, Rise Together, Pink Prism, True Taste Castle Stone, Pink Prism, Symphony of Hearts, True Blossom Castle Stone, Smile of Stars and Dot to Dot Spacer. The three Castle Stone beads are by True Beadz and everything else is Trollbeads.  

We went for a walk around this small lake that had mostly iced over. 

James wanted to take a photo of the bracelet on the ice and I said sure. In this light the Castle Stone beads match the ice! And I love how the Pink Prisms really pop!

That’s it for today! I’ll do another blog post Thursday or Friday. Some Ohm Beads are on their way including that super cute Ohm Jar, so that will be coming up soon. I’m trying to think of what to put with it and I’m leaning towards jam and jelly colours, like deep red and purple. Hope you’ve enjoyed this rather different kind of blog post and be sure to let me know if you like any of these beads or combos! And what colour do you think Julia is going to choose for March?


  1. My favorite combination is the one you did using your yellow and pink leather bracelet. I’m thinking about getting that bracelet if I can find it. I’m a little surprised that I like the two colors together as much as I do. I love the photo of the bracelet on the ice! As far as what color Julia uses… it’s got to be green!


    1. Thanks Suzanne. The bracelet on the ice is going to be one of my favourite bead photos, I think. My son is 13 and he just kind of plopped it on the ice, but it worked! The pink and yellow leather is a bit unusual but so nice for spring. So that’s two of us who think March will be green, then. 😉


  2. I must start by saying I LOVE, LOVE LOVE the blue/yellow combo with waterfall. One of my favorite bracelets you created of all time, maybe cuz they colors kinda don’t match and in the end they work so well together ( loving the cutie egg too ) overall I am not a huge fan of yellow beads although there are some exceptions ( I just bought ohm fireball and was thrilled with how unique it was in person and it seems to match with quite a bit of different glass variations as well )
    Great idea to put your bracelet on ice, wouldn’t even know it was ice if I did not read the entire article


    1. Alex, that’s so funny what you mention about the bangle. The blues don’t really match so I really wasn’t sure about it, so I’m happy you liked it! Now I’m always going to be looking at yellow beads, because I think I’d like more, ha ha! 😀 The ice background looks a bit melty, doesn’t it, with all the bubbles. Thanks for commenting!


  3. The ice photo is absolutely amazing, your son has inherited your photographic eye! I think that bracelet and the yellow mix with the wheel of time are my favorites. The first pink and grey one is almost neutral, so soft and works for any occasion. The yellow bracelet is like a juicy, energetic pop of color, so refreshing! I too only have a handful of yellow beads and they don’t play nice with each other. I have one of Julia’s Trueblossom Sunlight spots that is an amazing bead but on its own a little tricky for me to pair (I will have to save up for more 😉). I agree that green for march would be hard to turn down with that beautiful new True potion bead being available to showcase!


    1. It’s funny with yellow beads, isn’t it? A have another yellow Trollbeads unique but it looks awful with this bracelet. Aren’t we all going to be surprised if it’s not green!


  4. My favorite is the bracelet with the Castle Stone and Pink Prism beads. Love your outdoor shots as always! And to make it unanimous, probably green for March.


  5. Martha, thank you for these amazing photos!
    I don’t really wear yellow a lot, but these combos just make me want to try them all!!
    ok ok now i just HAVE to choose green, right? not like I was going to choose something else=)))))


  6. I so like all of your combinations. And especially the yellow amd pink bracelet! The truebeadz sunflower color looks amazing with that new troll sweetness one. They are on my list now.


    1. It’s funny how adding a new bead to the mix can breathe life into older beads. I haven’t used that yellow striped Pandora one for ages but now that I have the Sweetness bead I will likely use it more. And then the True Beadz one definitely ties them all together. 💛
