The Kindred Spirits Collection has several whimsical pendants, all designed by Søren Nielsen. The Dancing Fairy Pendant (top) and Magic Fairy Pendants are $116 USD/$153 CAN each. (The Canadian prices have recently gone up, I assume to reflect the value of our dollar.)
On the Trollbeads.com website, these pendants are shown on the Neck Bangle. But I really wanted to wear them on my wrist so I could see them. I feel they are too long to be comfortable on a bangle, but sat down to figure it out and thought if they could be placed higher up on the arm it just might work. Here is what I came up with, using the Water Lily Lock, Pink Silver Trace, Sea Anemone, Summer Dot and Pink Diamond Bead.
It was very comfortable and I wore the Dancing Fairy on the Cherry/Sage Leather Bracelet all day, even while potting some flowers. I made a little video to show how the pendant stayed in place. Just trying to keep it real. 😂 This leather bracelet is fairly new and the leather is still a bit stiff, so the glass beads stayed in place really well.
For the Magic Fairy Pendant I went with the Brown/Light Grey Leather Bracelet, Balance Lily Lock, Magical Lamp, Blue Desert, Pink Desert and Pink Conch beads.
The smaller pendants are $63 USD/$83 CAN. My favourite is the adorable Troll of Curiousity. I like the pointy ears and the mischievous smile!
There is also the Fairy of Nature, which is also super cute!
I put the two of them on a bangle with the Pink Striped Agate Kit.
In the photo below, I’ve got the Troll of Wisdom on the bottom of the Black Onyx Fantasy Necklace.
Here are all three little friends with the Native Elements Kit. On the top are the Fantasy Hibiscus and Social Circle.
This week I’ve been using the Fairy of Nature on the Twisted Ring of Change. Here it is with the Diamond Bead, Pink.
I also wore it with the Pink Delight Facet and the Fantasy Hibiscus on the end.
Ok, that’s about it! I also thought I’d put on a couple of older pics using the small pendants, shown below. Any favourites here? I really do use the little pendants a lot on my Fantasy Necklaces. I love the little flower blossom effect and the sweet faces.
Tomorrow will be a post on the Redbalifrog Lotus Love Lock and the Flowers of Bali…and listen, never give up even if you think Beadmail is lost! 10 weeks is my new record and now I’ve heard of someone whose Beadmail took 3 years! 😱

Hi Martha, There are so many good things you have here! I didn’t even think I wanted the Dancing Fairy Pendant until I saw how you used it on your leather bracelet a few days ago. Then there’s that Pink Striped Agate Kit, which I’ve been loving since I first saw it in one of your previous posts. Now, I see something new to me called the Native Elements Kit. I recognize the Aqua Edge Petals and the Aqua Edge Pumpkin,; which I already knew I wanted, but I didn’t know they were part of a kit. There goes the wish list again!
Hi Suzanne! Yes, the Native Elements Kit is so quirky and with its nature theme fits in perfectly with the little Trolls and Fairies. I really love how Trollbeads take a lot of inspiration from nature, just as Redbalifrog does. There sure were a lot of silver pieces released with the Kindred Spirits Collection. I’d like to feature every piece and it’s going to take a while!
I LOVE your beads and flowers pictures. They look great.
I’m not sure if I want the Magic Fairy for my neck bangle. I know I won’t wear it with my leather bracelets, even though I really liked your ideas. And the others ones are not for me. But your pictures are beautiful as usual.
Hi Alexandra! Thanks for reading and commenting, as it’s what makes it fun for me to keep doing the blog! I imagine everyone can enjoy pictures of flowers even if the beads are not something to your taste. 💕
Hi again Martha, I forgot to mention my incident involving missing beadmail. It was late last year when I was new to it all and I ordered a bead that had been very difficult for me to find. I waited and waited, but nothing. I tried to be patient but finally gave up since beads ordered after that were already arriving. The retailer reimbursed me so that was not an issue. The problem is I would rather have had the bead. But now you’re saying three years so maybe???
Yes, can you believe three years? So never give up hope!
Like your last bracelet.
Great photos! Really enjoyed your heavy duty testing video!
LOL! Thanks April! 😀

It’s good to know! All of the brands don’t dare to do something like that!
