The latest collection from True Beadz is the St. Patrick collection and consists of three silver beads and two glass beads. I’d like to use the beads year round, so I thought I’d try to blend these beads in with my existing bead collection. The cute O’Sheep arrived quite bright eyed, having been off the beer for the duration of the flight from Russia. But look, he is clearly pleading for that beer stein to be filled up!
As always, the packaging is so cool with the wax seal. And my kids now love beadmail from Russia, as it always arrives with some treats!
True Clover ($33 USD) is the smaller of the two barrel shaped beads. As we’ve come to expect with Alexey’s silver beads, the detail is so lovely.
Next is the True City Jungle, also $33 USD. I absolutely love the brickwork and the climbing vines and flowers. Definitely it’s a bead for all year round, not just St. Patrick’s Day.
O’Sheep ($40 USD) and True Pint ($55 USD) make a fine pair on the Trollbeads Green Leather Bracelet. He’s supposed to be munching on the clover, but I do believe he’s also taking quite a few sips of something from the mug.
True Potion ($33) is such a fresh green. Here I’ve put it with Almost Rose Quartz, Almost Amethyst and a pair of The Wheel of Time silver beads.
I thought it also looked nice with some Trollbeads from the Mysterious Ways Kit.
And here is True Potion with the new Soft Green X Links.
I was also curious if it would work with some glass beads from the Russian Lullaby Collection. On the top is Black Ice and in the middle is Blizzard.
Julia also kindly send some True Treasures. These are beads that are only available at Great Lakes Boutique in Ohio. Also in the package was the Event Bead called Friendly Smiles, that will be available at their event the last weekend in April. It’s a lovely orange with gold toned flakes.
It looks great with both the new and old Pumpkin shades.
Here are all the Treasures on a bangle with Friendly Smiles and True Potion.
And some macro photos. I so love these beads!!!
Finally, I combined quite a few of these beads with a few Trollbeads for a full bracelet and this is what I’ll be wearing today. I know lots of people are already enjoying their beads from this collection. I think it’s quite a delightful release and the True City Jungle is a real standout for me. The bricks with the climbing vine makes me think of old buildings and I think this weekend I’d like to put it with some Castle Stone and Blue Mist beads. And the True Pint clearly needs to be paired with the Ohm Beads Bar Brawl! Hope you’ve enjoyed this look at the collection. Comments are always welcome!
Coming up next week will be X Links, more Spirit Beads, new Fenton beads and perhaps another event bead. 💜 Have a great weekend!
