The Soft Colours of True Beadz

It’s a long weekend where I live (to celebrate Queen Victoria’s birthday πŸ˜€) and we didn’t have many commitments, so I got to sit around and play with beads! With the new pale grey colour coming out soon, I thought I’d play around with some of the soft colours in the True Beadz line. 

The first bracelet I made up with a plant in mind that I call ‘Snow in Summer’, which has white flowers with a yellow center. At the center of the bracelet is a Treasure, but the rest are in the regular collection. Starting on the top right and going clockwise are The Wheel of Time, Touch Linen, Blossom Siberia, Air Linen, 3 Roses, Blossom Sunlight Spot, a Treasure, Blossom Sunlight Spot, Silver Lilac, Air Linen, Alchemy Snow, Taste Linen and another The Wheel of Time. 

A simple bangle of just Blossom beads can be so pretty. On either end are Baby Pinks, then left to right are Blue Mist, Lilac and Linen shades. 

I also wanted to try out something with soft blues. 

Below left to right are Air Stormy Heavens, Dancing Fairies Stream, Firebird Dangle, Taste Sky Blue and Dragon Eyes Mystery. 

I also made up a very unusual colour combo. Julia described it as a maple-purple bracelet. 

Below left to right are Touch Dragon Green, a Treasure, Blossom Purple Dream, Once Upon a Time and Taste Blue Mist. 

Below left to right after the Taste Blue Mist are a Treasure, Taste Purple Dream and Roots. 

Below left to right after the Roots are two Treasures and then Touch Dragon Green. 

So, I sure had a lot of fun playing around with these beads. I don’t know if you guys get much time to just sit and play, but I need to do it more often. Out of all these beads I absolutely adore the look of the Blossom Sunlight Spots with the striped Treasure as I think it’s very fresh looking. It’s very easy to want every colour group of True Beadz, but what is your current favourite?

  1. Hi Martha,
    Great post. I always enjoy seeing anyone’s pictures of Julia’s beads as they blend so well with so many different brands of beads. I got my first two true beadz in the st Patrick’s release and have acquired many others in a short time and they are easily becoming my favorite glass. I have my first touch on the way ( blue mist ) and can’t wait. I love love the treasures you have that have little cz and sand in them.
    Enjoy your day off

    1. Alex, I’m so happy you got a Blue Mist as that is my favourite colour. It’s so unusual in the bead world and simply divine! Those Treasures I have are fab and caused quite a ruckus last summer as they were hard to get, so I haven’t shown them much. Hope you have a great day!


  2. I agree with Alex. Don’t worry about the ruckus, you wear your Treasures, Martha! They are wonderful. This year was my first time finding out about Spring Break and I learned you need to be very quick to get the True Treasures online. Lesson learned and hopefully I will be ready next time. It’s
    impossible to choose a favorite- I love every single combination you’ve done here. All the True Beadz go together so beautifully , you just can’t go wrong.


    1. Thanks Suzanne and Alex! I am lucky to have these beauties and you’re right, I shouldn’t shy away from wearing/photographing them. I really do love how easy it is to put all the different colours together.


  3. I love every bracelet you are showing here, Martha! Especially the two in the last photo, and I really can’t decide which one I like best. The neutrals with the lovely yellow pops, or the purple-green-maple one – nope, still can’t decide, they’re both beautiful! I think I need more purples and greens. I only have a Taste Viola and the Touch and Taste Gooseberry. I need Touch and Taste beads in all the other shades too. πŸ™‚

    Enjoy your holiday! Ours here is next weekend, and I’m looking forward to the day off, and hoping we’ll get some nice weather for it.


    1. I hope you get some nice weather next weekend, also, Kim! This is our traditional weekend for getting our annuals potted and I still have a few left to do. I think more purples and greens are a splendid idea. πŸ˜€


  4. Hi again Martha, I just saw your red leather bracelet combination on Instagram. Is that another one of your bead playing sessions? Because WOW!


    1. Yes! It’s the Cherry/Sage Green Leather Bracelet with the Dancing Fairy Pendant. I was thinking about what to do for my next blog post and I haven’t really featured the little fairies and trolls from the Trollbeads spring collection. I adore the pendants, but if I wear them on the Neck Bangle then I can’t see them! It’s a bit too long to wear on a bangle with the legs pointing down to your fingers, but by turning it this way and putting it on the leather bracelet with the lock at the top, it fits really well! I’ve been wearing it for a few hours and stays put so well that I would even wear it to work if I knew I had to conduct some band classes!


  5. It took me a bit to figure out that it was the Dancing Fairy Pendant. I didn’t plan on getting it because I don’t wear necklaces, but now when I see it used like this, I guess another addition for my wishlist.


    1. I’ll go make a little video right now of how it sits and post it on the blog post in a couple of days. It’s not inexpensive, but such a little work of art.


  6. HI Martha, I think anything with the Sunlight Spots is fabulous, such a happy color! But my favorite of this post is the bangle with the soft blues. I have many True Beadz on my wish list, but I only allow myself one or toe beads a month and for one I’m concentrating on silvers. (Maybe I need to come out of retirement to fund my bead collection!😏)


    1. Hi Kat! I’m so glad you liked these combos. The Sunlight Spot is such a happy colour, as you say. I don’t think I’ve really put it with white yet, but I should. I totally understand the one or two beads a month thing. It’s so easy to get carried away with it all, especially when we collect a few brands. 😬


  7. dear Martha, thank you so much for these beautiful photos! we have our first really warm day today so I smiled from ear to ear reading about Snow in Summer=))
    I love the unusual combos you showed here! so many possibilities!!!


  8. I do need more Truebeadz. I just got some of the soon to be retired big city Lights but apart from that I don’t have enough colours (mainly Royal Viola and Taiga, and 3 TrueTouch in blue, white and red). I need to focus more on Truebeadz during the summer. Some colours are so happy and cheerful. It’s just that my wishlist is so big…
