Today I’ve got some photos of the Star Bijou house brand Spirit Beads‘ necklace and some gemstones. And before I forget, Star Bijou still has some of the Trollbeads Kimono Kits, like I showed in the blog post about the Dragons! Here is how the necklace arrived and this is exactly how I wore it for work. From top to bottom are the Lava Bead (€22), Faceted Citrine (€49), Faceted Carnelian (€33) and the dangle is also a Faceted Citrine (€89). The necklace starts at €39 for the 70cm and then you use the little adapter which comes in oval and circular shapes, for €15-19. This chain pictured here is the blackened version but it also comes in a shiny version.
The Faceted Citrine in the middle is my favourite as it seems almost to glow and is such a soft, buttery yellow!
I used the three beads from the necklace for a Japanese inspired bangle, with the silver and brass Maneki-nekos.
For this necklace below, I’ve used three glass Trollbeads and the sweet Kokeshi, also from Spirit Beads. The dangle is a Blue Chalcedony (€59).
This necklace uses a Rock Crystal pendant (€59), some glass Trollbeads and then the fabulous Dragon and Chinese Lucky Coin from Spirit Beads.
Lastly, I made up a necklace using some Purple Haze and Get in Shape Ohm Beads, a couple of silver Pandora beads, the Kokeshi from Spirit Beads and an Amethyst pendant (€89).
So, as an alternative to the Trollbeads Fantasy Necklace this is a fun, changeable system. I suppose you could even put a couple of dangles on the adapter clip, like one of these plus something with a narrow ring, like the Redbalifrog Palm Frond & Frog. Hope you’ve enjoyed this look at these beautiful beads! Coming up Friday are some new Fenton beads. I’ll be with limited wifi while on a short road trip but can try to answer any questions if anyone has any!
