A while ago I bought the beautiful silver and glass Trollbead called Palm Island. I love how there is some sand coloured glass and then the blue for the water. 

The detail on the palm fronds is lovely. 

I just adore palm trees and get so excited when seeing them! This is one in Bali. 

First I tried it on my Brown/Light Grey Leather Bracelet. The Flip Flops and Swim Fins were new last summer and I don’t know if they were popular, but I think they’re cute. I bought my first ever real pair of flip flops only a couple of years ago! 

It looks good on a chain necklace, I think. 

But I wanted to make a large bracelet and this time didn’t stick to just Trollbeads. I looked around for anything I had to remind me of being near the ocean and the Tuk Tuk is there because it made me think of the beach at Hua Hin in Thailand. 

The first beads I picked out though, were my Azure Bubbles, the Fish Lock and Wave of Dreams. 

Below left to right are the Ohm Beads Growling Hippo, Trollbeads The Eye, Redbalifrog Rope, Trollbeads Beach, Ohm Beads Narwhal, Trollbeads Azure Bubbles and Star of Power. Doesn’t the Narwhal have the most adorable little smile?

Below left to right after the Star of Power are Trollbeads Arctic Stripes, Palm Island, Ohm Beads Waterfall, Trollbeads Star of Protection and Azure Bubbles. 

Below left to right are True Beadz Shells n’ Star, Trollbeads Beige/Blue Dot, Redbalifrog Rope, Trollbeads Wave of Dreams, Ohm Beads Tuk Tuk, Trollbeads Fish Lock. 

Here’s a last look at the bracelet. The fish kind of looks dead hanging upside down like this, whoops! Anyway, I think Palm Island is such a beautiful little piece of art and then it’s just a bonus that it can be worn. It will be good to try something like this again when it’s really hot out this summer, or just whenever the beach is on my mind!
