Spring has spring with some sweet little flowers…glass ones, that is! The Elfbeads Flowerstones (€28/$31 USD) come in many different colours which you can see on the Elfbeads website here. The ones I have are absolutely delightful. They are Limited Edition in that they are only going to be around until the end of the summertime. Also, they have a larger core so will fit on Pandora bracelets.
The pink and yellow one is called Cotton Candy and inspired me to go looking through my closet to see if I still have any Laura Ashley dresses and I do!
It also looks lovely with the pink and white Sweet Flowerstone. In the middle is a Sweet Flower World focal bead which I did a blog post on here. The silver beads are called Waver (L) and Everstar (R).
I think my favourite of the bunch is Ceramic, below left. I love the colours in it. In the middle is Wonder, then the next silver bead is called Dewdrops and finally on the right is Sea Turtle.
I was really impressed with the quality of the beads. I took a macro shot of Wonder and just look at the details.
Let’s take a look and see how the Elfbeads play with other brands. I pulled out the lilac colours in Sea Turtle and Ceramic with the True Touch Lilac True Beadz. The Flowerstone on the left is called Arabian Sea.
This vibrant blue and purple bead below right is called Forget-Me-Not. In the middle is an Amethyst from sTicKs & StoNEs. I like how there are a lot of textures and patterns on this bangle. This bangle, by the way, is an Elfbeads one called Star Bangle and the stoppers are Star Stoppers.
Next up is a bangle with two Sugared Foam OHM Beads and a True Opal Mint True Beadz. I’m happy to see that Blooming Boutique is selling both True Beadz and Elfbeads with live images. It looked like everyone was having fun at their recent event in Delaware!
While the Flowerstones look wonderful interspersed with solid colours I also think they make a sweet statement bundled together.
Lastly, here is a large bracelet with a couple of Trollbeads stones and Pandora Petite Facets added in. The silver Elfbead on the right is called Knotling. My friend Cheryl has one and wears it all the time. I hope you’ve enjoyed this look at the Elfbeads Flowerstones and please let me know if they are part of your collection or if they are something you are interested in!
