Today is a bit of a different blog post, as I have pictures of an upcoming event bead. Purple Waters is the Trollbead that was made especially for the Trollbeads at the Beach event March 31-April 2 in Lewes, Delaware, USA. To be honest, I had to look at a map to see where Delaware was when they asked if I’d be interested in going and unfortunately for me it’s a 10 hour drive, otherwise it looks like it’d be lots of fun! It’s put on by the Blooming Boutique Beads Store, which is where I bought my Azure Bubbles, during one of their online parties. They do really cute Facebook Live videos also, like how to style Fantasy Necklaces. As of right now the only way to buy the bead is to go to the event.
Here is Purple Waters up close. I like how it appears to have ripples plus the soft drops on the outside of the bead are so pretty.
I personally like it just on a bangle with some of the Water Lily inspired pieces from the spring collection. I’m really liking the silver bead below called Moonlight Dancing, these days.
Here I’ve used Soul Mates and Pefect Moments from the Enchanted Ways Kit.
And I’ve always liked purple and orange, so tried it with the Love & Laughter bead. I used the Copper Twisted Bangle here, because it looks so good with orange, but I think this might have looked better on silver. 🤔
Purple and yellow is always a favourite of mine. The Trollbeads USA website recently added The Martha Floral Bracelet to their #Trollbeads section and it’s all purples and yellows. Here is a bangle using the Gold Silver Trace beads and an older Purple Stripes Bead.
Next up is a combo I tried using the Black Silk bead in the middle as an anchor. I really don’t have many black beads, but they can be so striking. Black silk might be one I should try to buy in multiples. Interestingly, the beads counting from the left at numbers 3 and 9 are both Moonlight Bubbles!
Lastly, here’s a larger bracelet using just purple and white. The Amethyst in the middle really matches well and the silver beads are all from the Kindred Spirits collection. This Water Lily Lock is my go to one these days.
That’s it for this look at Purple Waters today. I hope people going to the event have a super time! I’m happy I live in Canada but man, it’s a bead desert up here. There are no stores or events like this where I live. 😀 Coming up Wednesday is a Singapore Inspired blog post, starring Tropical Travels, the People’s Bead winner from a couple of years ago.
