Redbalifrog always comes out with lovely traditional Christmas beads and this year is no exception. There are five beads in the Forever Festive collection. Left to right are Santa’s Helper ($36 USD), Nutcracker ($27 USD), Christmas Pudding ($31 USD), Little Christmas Tree ($31 USD) and Pinecone Decoration ($27 USD).
I’m going to make a guess that the Pinecone Decoration will be one of most popular pieces but my favourite might be the Christmas Pudding! I really like the detail of the holly around the base of the plate.
Next up is the Nutcracker. Anyone who loves the ballet might like this bead. He has a very stylish moustache, I think!
The Santa’s Helper is very jolly looking.
The Pinecone Decoration is a fabulous size. It sits nicely on a bracelet or bangle but it is also substantial enough to wear on a necklace.
I made up a large bracelet using some of my most loved Redbalifrog pieces from other releases.
My all time favourite is of course the Gingerbread House with Snowflake.
Holly Man fits in so nicely with this theme.
Look at the adorable Angel Brite and Dove of Peace.
Honestly, Redbalifrog has an incredible collection of Christmas beads so I would urge you to look online at your favourite retailer to see the new beads plus the older pieces. The prices are very reasonable. We already have snow where I live, so I am feeling the Christmas vibe even though it’s only mid November. I hope you see something you like here!

This isn’t such an exciting post Martha! I too am in a Christmas mood, which doesn’t usually happen until December.
I love each piece and now have to decide which ones to choose. I love Christmas pudding, so that’s easy! The Nutcracker is superb! So that’s in the basket!
Oh lord, just when I was trying not to buy anymore beads.
But Redbalifrog pieces are so collectible, arent they? I love your older ones, too. The Dove of Peace is one of my absolute favourites as well, and I wear it solo on a necklace throughout the year.
Thanks for the beautiful photos and inspirations!
Sarah, I was pretty sure you would like these beads! The details are so delightful and the prices are incredibly good. I can just picture your delight at seeing the Christmas Pudding bead!
