Outside it is cold and dark. Nothing is in the sphere but a light touch of magic. Light can always be found in the darkness – and the darkest night shows the brightest stars.
Today I have a selection of pieces from the Trollbeads Winter Collection, 2020. It will be available on Friday, November 6. Right away, for me, the star of the show is the Faceted Blue Goldstone. It’s not a stone, but is glass and there are so many sparkles. It makes me think of a far away galaxy and would easily fit in with any space themed bracelet. Designed by Lise Aagaard, it costs $61 USD/ $74 CAD.
It looks great with the new ring, which is called Lucky Stars Fantasy Ring. Designed by Louise Rimpler, it is incredibly comfortable and costs $127 USD/ $150 CAD.
Keeping with the stars theme, there is a silver bead called Lucky Star $39 USD/ $45 CAD and a lock called Lucky Stars Lock at $72 USD/ $86 CAD. The lock is reminiscent of the one from the Wishful Sky bracelet from a few years ago, but this one is smooth and sleek. I think this one might become a new favourite for some people.
Another favourite of mine from this collection is the Framed by Stars. Again, it is very sleek and comfortable to wear. It’s also reasonably priced at $50 USD/ $61 CAD. I like it just on a bangle with one bead.
It looks gorgeous with the Faceted Blue Goldstone.
The new glass kit is called Bubble Joy Kit and is designed by Tenzin Phuntsok and Kalden Chophet. The kit costs $195 USD/ $224 CAD and purchased separately, the beads are $39 USD/ $45 CAD. These are the kind of beads which are so easy to wear with other beads, especially Uniques, which tend to be more intricate. Below left to right are Scarlet Bubble Joy, Shimmer Bubble Joy, Midnight Bubble Joy, Frosty Bubble Joy, Sienna Bubble Joy and Misty Bubble Joy.
Sienna Bubble Joy is the perfect bead to go with Golden Cave (third from the left).
At first I didn’t think much of Misty Bubble Joy, but then I put it with some grey tones and wow, I love it!
Shimmer Bubble Joy has a lot of fine glitter in it.
I think it pairs nicely with the Faceted Blue Goldstone.
I tried out a white/blue/orange bracelet which is a colour scheme I really like.
There are some new zodiac stars and Trollbeads sent me the Sagittarius Star, as I was born in November. Each zodiac star is $50 USD/ $61 USD.
First let’s compare the new stars to the recent ones. I don’t have the oldest ones, sorry.
That’s it for today! I’d love to hear what you think of this collection. I feel like some of the pieces are updated versions of older ones and I like these ones more. The lock has no pointy bits and is going to be a great every day kind of lock as it’s very wearable. The Sienna Bubble Joy is so rich and gives me a cozy feeling just looking at it. I’m going to buy one so I can have a pair to go with the Golden Cave. I am picturing a bangle with Golden Cave in the middle, flanked by two Rose Quartz beads and then two Sienna Bubble Joys. Anyway, I’d love to hear from you. Have a good Monday!
