Last week Julia kindly sent me some True Beadz Treasures, as an example of some of the ones that will be available for the Great Lakes Boutique Bead Bash at the end of September. After posting a video on my Facebook page, there was some interest in seeing them, so here are some photos that might help with making purchasing decisions. In each case I tried to pair one or two Treasures with regular collection beads.
Let’s start with my favourites. The middle one is especially gorgeous!
The True Touch Terracotta beads match nicely with this one.
This cream coloured flowery one pairs nicely with Black Ice on the left and Blizzard on the right. Black Ice really is a favourite of mine.
Here, I’ve used Alchemy Waterfall and Alchemy Breeze on either side of this bluish green Treasure.
The Treasure on the left is the one that really caught my eye on Instagram. The middle bead is Almost Rose Quartz and on the right is another Treasure. Almost Rose Quartz is retired but I believe Star Bijou has some retired True Beadz, like Almost Aquamarine and Homemade, which is a sweet silver bead of buttons. I think my friend Trisha has it. 🤔
Here are a couple of bracelets using different colour palettes. Fingers crossed everyone will be able to get what they want as I know quite a few people are saving up some money for the event!
Disclosure: For this blog I may receive some items as promotional samples.
Hi Martha, I love all of the True Treasures you show here! I think my favorite has to be the bangle with the True Touch Terracotta. I’m going to either have to win the lottery or rob a bank because there are a lot of beads calling me!
Hi Suzanne! You’ll have to let me know if you have success getting something. The bangle with the True Touch Terracotta has such a warm look, doesn’t it? I always like anything with stripes, too and like the contrast between the dark and light colours.
I would be thrilled if I manage to get even one of the True Treasures! I know I will be overwhelmed with all the choices, but right now I wouldn’t mind having that Terracotta one. Then of course I’ll need the True Touch Terracotta to go with it….
Hi Martha I keep on admiring Your ideas, never had occassion to comment before. True Treasures arę soooooo great, actually love all of them. My favourites are the ones with some sparkle to it. I think it is because Julia says she doesn’t particurarly like when It’s too much of shine. .. that is why when she adds sometimes a sparkling touch it never seems too much it’s just perfect. I’ll be very jelous (in a positive meaning though ) about bead bash. .. wish I could be there but I live in Poland and even buying anything else than Pandora means to me ordering online since no other brand is available here. ..
Hi Elsa, thank you for reading and commenting. I also like the small amount of sparkle. As you say, it’s just a little bit and not overpowering. I’ve always wanted to visit Poland-maybe someday!
if You’re aroound, let me know;) there’s lot of nice places for bead-trip photos too xo
