There are certain Trollbeads that beg to be put on tiny plinths, to be shown off as the miniature sculptures that they truly are. “Buddha”, “Birdhouse”, “Origami”, “Frog”, and the “Indian Elephant” all come to mind… But perhaps the best example of all is “The Seer”.
This beautiful piece is being retired this month, and while it is true that we didn’t sell very many of this large bead at Tartooful, I will miss it. It’s graceful, lyrical lines are so lovely, and the little dichroic glass orb is so beautiful, cradled carefully in the figure’s hands. Dichroic glass is perfect to create an aura of mystery, with its subtle pattern and shifting hues.
