I’m starting a new feature today. Instead of showing new collections from Trollbeads I’m going to make a different combo every month showing a bracelet, necklace and ring. (The live image previews are just not feasible to prepare while working full time, I am finding.) I will use a mix of new and older beads each time. Trollbeads has an incredibly rich and varied back catalogue of products. All the time new collectors are discovering the brand and I’d like to show those people what is available. So here we go with a combo for December!
For the necklace I used the Foxtail Chain Necklace with the adorable Mittens bead. It is just so sweet with the little snowflakes on the mittens and the silver strings. My kids used to have the strings on their mitts when they were really young so this bead brings back such lovely memories. The white dangle is the Blizzard Tassel.
Last week I also used the Mittens bead on a lock, so that it would dangle down from the bottom of my wrist.
The ring is one from last year and it’s perfect for a wintry theme. It’s called Snow Bubble Ring.
It pairs really well with the Delicate Pearl Ring.
The bracelet has a Unique bead in the middle that I bought from the Canadian shop called Tartooful. I have long had my eye on this style of Unique as it makes me think of a traditional wool sweater. That’s why I used the Ball of Yarn and Sweater Beads. I also wanted to use the Blizzard beads to tie in with the necklace. At the ends I used the new Stardust and Come Together beads and the new Red Twinkle adds a little glow.
The Blizzard beads also look nice with pearls, I think.
Right now there is a promo going on in the USA with a free Burgundy Jewelry Case when you spend $150. In Canada it’s the same deal, also $150. It’s really handy for storage.
Here’s another icy look at my December combo. Hope you enjoyed this look at some older and newer beads together! Are there any pieces you like for the winter?
Disclosure: For this blog post I may receive some items from Trollbeads USA as promotional samples.
I love this idea for a new format. I really don’t know how you manage everything that you do already!
There are so many lovely combos and perfect close ups and, I think these posts could be compiled in one gorgeous Trollbeads coffee table book!
I received one of the jewellery boxes as part of my Trollbeads Black Friday promo, so later today I will play with it and post. Strange that the jewellery box came solo and none of the beads I ordered are here, yet. The ultimate tease!
Sarah, Cathy from Tartooful was talking about how it would be nice to make a coffee table book about Trollbeads collectors. Her idea was to have people tell stories about why they collect certain items. Could be an interesting project!
Trisha had the same thing happen-the box arrived but no beads. I really like these little boxes. Right now I keep a few bracelets in it that I have made up for the week. Hope your beads arrive soon!
It really is an inspired idea and would be so much fun for Trollies around the world.
Also, you wicked Trollbeads temptress, I have been lusting after a Trollbeads ring for a long time. These photos help cement my craving. So, in the 2019 ….
