There’s a new starter bracelet coming out from Trollbeads on Friday, October 18. For $120 USD it consists of a silver chain, lock, silver bead and glass bead. The lock and bead are designed by Ragnar R. Jørgensen. The glass is a grape purple with a hint of blue.

On the reverse side of the lock is some pretty scrollwork.

I decided to make a full combination using lots of black beads and the Soft Wind of Change Pendant, which was also designed by Jørgensen.

Here’s the bracelet just by itself. The Shimmer Royal Beads play nicely with the new purple bead.

I did a little splurge a while back and bought some Round Black Onyx beads and another Black Onyx so that I would have two. Multiples are so amazing to have but hard on the wallet! But check out this bracelet as it has easily been my favourite of the season. Lately I’ve been making bracelets using just a little bit of silver. I find the gemstones and glass to be so addictive.

Warm, natural colours make up this bracelet below.

Lastly, here’s another bracelet I’ve enjoyed looking at this fall. The yellows feel so warm and make me think of a campfire on a cool, crisp night.

The sweet Fantasy Necklace with Elf completes the look.

My thoughts about this new starter bracelet are that it is a good deal for someone new to Trollbeads or to give as a gift. The heart lock is a love it or loathe it kind of piece and of course, I always like purple but some people don’t. Amazingly, the purple flowers in my photos were given to me by my purple hating friend, Trisha! There wasn’t much buzz about this bracelet so I am guessing a lot of people were underwhelmed, but I would love to hear your thoughts.

Disclosure: As always, this sample was given to me by Trollbeads USA.
