This blog post contains product samples as well as purchased pieces.
I’ve been enjoying the Misty Bubble Joy bead so much that I thought I’d take a few more pictures of it and do a blog post. Even though I had the sample from Trollbeads, I bought a couple more. To me, the bead looks like liquid glass and I like how it looks different depending on what surrounds it.
Yesterday I wore this bangle, with Quiver of Hope in the middle and two Silver Mountains.
Misty Bubble Joy has such an icy look, but I thought I’d try it with some soft pinks and purples.
I feel like it makes a perfect companion to a Labradorite.
Here’s a grey toned bracelet in four different types of light. First let’s see it indoors.
Here in my driveway, it’s a bit tricky to actually see the beads.
This one is on my car with me blocking the sun…
Lastly, here it is in both the sun and shade on my front step.
Here’s a simple bracelet with the glass beads that I can never remember the names of! I quite like this look.
I pulled out some older Christmas beads to make up this bracelet. I’m still trying to decide if I like this one or not!
I really liked this green bracelet from last week.
And now for a few random photos with the Faceted Goldstone I bought. Love the sparkles!
Lastly, we have had some snow, so I couldn’t resist some wintry pictures! Love the Christmas Wish bead!
Ok, that’s it for today! Next up I’ll be hosting an Ohm Beads giveaway for Beadmas on Dec. 5 and then likely my next post will be for the Trollbeads Spring Collection, which usually comes out in January.
What do you think of Misty Bubble Joy? And did you purchase anything in the Black Friday sales? Oddly, I haven’t bought a thing, although the weekend is not yet over!
Edited to add yet more combos with Misty Bubble Joy. Am obsessed with it!
My misty bubble joy bead is on a mainly grey bracelet with soft green and a touch of peach. For such a simple bead, it holds its own. It really picks up the light well.
Oh, I must try it with a touch of peach-that sounds delightful! It’s funny how some beads kind of slip under the radar but then turn out to be a favourite.
Hi Martha. Thanks for sharing! The Misty Bubble looks lovely!! I did succumb and bough some beads this weekend at good prices! I bought Florence which I’ve been eyeing for a long time and also Sea Urchin. It’s difficult to resist the reduced prices!!
Hi Judy! Ooo-sounds like you’ll be having some fun soon. Gotta love a sale!
Misty Bubble Joy-this bead, like pure transparent water, adjusts to the color of adjacent beads, emphasizing their merits. I still like the Goldstone in the old version, I like the smooth one. Christmas Wish is a shooting star that is always with you, which means you can make a wish at any time.
Oh, I like your idea of always having a Christmas Wish close by. What a lovely thought!
It’s my favourite bead of the year! I love how it looks with greys but it picks up greens beautifully too. I need another one! I brought some older beads from my wish list in the sale. From me to me for Christmas!
Laura, I definitely love it with greys and greens also. I think it’s a good value bead because it offers a lot of play time trying to figure out what it looks best with! Can’t wait to see you Christmas present beads!
Love all of these photos, Martha! Misty Bubble Joy is such a versatile bead. It looks great on all of your combos. The goldstone is really striking too. And I love your winter photos, though I’m not ready for snow. No bead shopping for me this weekend, though I did do some other shopping online. Some for me and some for a start on my holiday shopping. I really want to try to support artisans and small businesses this year. Oh, I did place a True Beadz order when Julia had their Black Friday event though. That counts, right?
That’s a great idea to shop locally this year, Kim. I keep reading that not all businesses will survive this pandemic. The TBz order totally counts and I forgot that I also placed an order, so we have that to look forward to!
love this bead, as well as all the other new bubble beads, they are so alive. all of your bracelet compositions posted on this blog are beautiful, thanks for sharing
Thanks very much! I also really like the new bubble beads.
You certainly showed how versatile it is Martha, gorgeous photos as always.
I really like it, and assume that there is little variation in the beads so this is one that you can buy from stock photos?
Thanks Marisa! I ordered two from the Trollbeads store sight unseen and they were pretty much the same as my first one. There was a bit of variation in size, so if you want a pair, you might want to check with a shop that could send you pics.
