I Love You…a little bit more every day.
For Valentine’s Day 2021, Lise Aagaard has designed a gorgeous faceted glass bead ($61 USD/ $74 CAD). It is a limited edition and I think it will be very popular as it’s absolutely stunning. It makes me think of a cherry lollipop or maybe cinnamon hearts. I only hope these pictures have truly captured the beauty of this bead.
With all the shimmer, it looks fantastic with copper.
I tried the I Love You bead with quite a range of beads, but one set of beads together really stood out. I really like it with the Round Garnet and Hessonite Garnet.
Most of these pictures were taken on fairly gloomy days, but when I received the sample it was actually sunny! Here’s where it really has a cherry look. I think in the shade it has a more cinnamon look to it.
It pairs well with the spacers from the New Wisdom collection.
I gathered up some glass beads thought I thought matched up well. In past years I have treated myself to one or two Valentine’s Day themed Uniques, but not this year. Instead, I’m going to get another I Love You bead. 😍
The Daisy bead is a favourite of mine.
The Rose of June is also so pretty.
The silver Inside Love bead is also nice for this time of year. The pink bead to the left is called Pink Delight Facet. It was a limited edition bead back in 2016.
So, I’d love to hear your thoughts about this bead. I’ve been busy writing report cards, so might add some more pictures to this blog post later on when I have some time. I know this colour is not for everyone, but I practically squealed when I saw it in person. I adore beads that have lots of shimmer and this one does not disappoint!
Gorgeous photos as usual Martha ❤ Will be adding this beautiful bead to my bead box next week (if there’s any left!) I love the shimmer faceted beads so I am sure I won’t be disappointed when it arrives 😍
Thanks Janis! I’m sure you won’t be disappointed as all the live images from retailers look stunning. I bet it will sell really quickly!
The “I Love You’ faceted bead is gorgeous. . .and maybe it’s just my old laptop screen and I am craving fruit , but the ‘i Love You” bead reminds me so much of the outer shell of a Pomegranate. My mother loves buying these around November, and one year bought 10- they each had robust shades of dark reds, mixed with faint pinks and some very faint yellow hues . I immediately thought of the pomegranate charm from Redbalifrog.
I love beads that evoke a “Yummy! ” reaction. Thanks for taking the time to share the great photos in the midst of busy report card time.
Oh, I never thought of a pomegranate, but I have that RBF bead and will for sure try that combo out. I love everything to do with Valentine’s Day! We are returning to school next week so I hope to have fun with the kiddos and will wear bracelets with hearts every day. 😄
Very pretty it looks a little different in each picture. I’m still trying to find a pink delight bead in a deeper coral pink with some peachy white. It’s one hard to find bead I wasn’t collecting trollbeads in 2016 unfortunately. It’s been awhile since I bought any trollbeads just to expensive right now. But I come back to look at your pictures for inspiration.
Melissa, I’m glad you can enjoy the pictures even if you’re not buying right now. I wish I had bought a couple of Pink Delight Facets back in the day. The dream one you’re describing would be gorgeous!
I do the same thing- I go through Martha’s beautiful pictures for inspiration and ideas: and to get a better idea(sizing/color) of what the beads would really look like when placed on bracelets/bangles, etc.
