A while back I started noticing the Instagram posts of a lady from The Netherlands named Wendy who was in the process of developing a brand of silver beads and other jewelry such as bracelets and necklaces called Corner 35. I liked her style so offered to help spread the word once she opened for business. There are so many bead brands out there that I now look for brands that make something that can’t be found elsewhere. Some of the beads that caught my eye are the Candy for me, Just a bag, Two peas in a pod, Wannabe ghost as well as the three I will be showing here. I like the creativity and the beads are nice and solid. With the prices listed, deduct 21% for VAT if you live outside of the EU.
The one that really struck my fancy is called Campfire (€79). We used to go camping all the time with the kids and what fun to have a reminder of those days. Check out the detail of the logs at the bottom.
I thought it would work on a bangle alongside the Redbalifrog Log Stoppers and True Beadz glass and wood beads.
Campfires also make me think of s’mores. If you aren’t familiar with them, they are a treat you make by roasting a marshmallow over a fire, then place the marshmallow on a graham cracker with some chocolate. Put on another graham cracker and squish it down. Delicious!
The beads above are a Trollbeads Golden Rutilated Quartz, a retired Ohm Beads Hot Chocolate, retired Ohm Beads Cold Milk and a Trollbeads Cat’s Eye Quartz Bead.
The next bead is called Lovingly ladybugs (€79). Notice how one of them has its wings slightly spread.
Clearly this bead was meant to go with the Melanie Moertel Ladybugs!
It should be noted that these beads have a larger core so do fit Pandora bracelets.
Lastly, here is the sweet Curious acorn bead (€59). I love the top of the acorn and the oak leaf on the other side.
Here I’ve used two Trollbeads Grey Prisms (which have always looked rather brown to me 🤔), a Smoky Quartz and Daylight Brilliance.
Since it’s Canada Day today, I decided to make a ‘camping in Canada’ themed bracelet. I added in the Ohm Beads Moosing Around bead. Happy Canada Day to my fellow Canucks!
So, I hope you’ve enjoyed this look at some new silver beads and do check the other ones out too as they are rather whimsical. Hope everyone is having a great start to the summer!
