All of our Trollies know that Cristi and I have what we could term a mild obsession with “Azure Bubbles”….You only have to look at the most recent version of my blue bracelet to see that it’s a favorite bead – there are not one, but two dramatically different examples on this bracelet alone! (And my green bracelet has one of its cousins, “Organic Bubbles”…)
So for our most recent shipment, we requested a big beautiful batch of “Azure Bubbles”, to fully explore the huge range of colours, textures and tones. This morning we have 10 different Azures on the display… but of course before they were put into stock I just had to make up a play bracelet, and hold a little photo shoot!
What a luxury to have so many of these gorgeous glass to play with… I always thought that there was enough variation among this one pattern to justify having it alone on a bracelet, but of course I had never before had the opportunity to experiment and actually try it!
Green, purple, grey, brown, terracotta, indigo, sand, vicuna, pink, lavender, and cerulean blue are all hidden in the depths of these beads. Just when I think I’ve got a favorite “look” for these beads, I come across another one that is totally fresh again, and I change my mind.
Perhaps its the Pacific West Coast speaking in me that makes me love the indistinct, wisps of colour and the subtle, blue on grey on plum on green so much. They have all the colours of a West Coast beach, with the cool grey sand, big surf ocean and storm swept sky.
It’s going to be such fun over the next few days, trying these beauties on all the different bracelets that come in for the Mothers’ Day Special Pricing Event. I have a feeling that there will be so many unexpected palettes that sing with the addition of one of these designs…
Clockwise from clasp: (This will be fun) “Lace Lock”, “Azure Bubbles”, “Planet, Small”, “Azure Bubble”, “Azure Bubbles”, “Zodiac Bead (retired)”, “Azure Bubbles”, “Azure Bubbles”, “Happy Universe, gold & silver”, “Azure Bubbles”, “Azure Bubbles”, “Endless”, “Azure Bubbles”, “Azure Bubbles”, “Planet, Big”, “Azure Bubbles”.
“Tiny bubbles…. make me feel happy….”
Come and see them while they last!
