Trollbeads Inspiration: MB’s Delicious Necklace (Six Days to Go…)

The impossibly glamorous and irrepressible MB recently came in for a total redesign of her collection… (which was SO much fun)… and left with fresh new bracelets and a necklace that feels as delicious as a scoop of gelato.

It’s so easy to create beautiful compositions when one has such lovely beads to play with… this glowing “Baby Girl” is such a delicate shade of rose, and it brings out the pink in the dichroic glass heart of its companion, “Three Flowers”.

This sorbet coloured trio are pure joy… their frosty pastel tones are perfectly complementary.  How satisfying to see the slight difference in texture between the smooth simplicity and the budded.

MR has a few wonderful retired items in her collection, including this retired,  limited edition, lavender Chinese Jade.  By its side we placed a retired “Green Dot” that is very au courant, with its ivory background and subtle green dots.

One can’t underestimate the impact that yellow has in this composition… don’t miss the buttery yellow amber in the photo above, and of course the “Power Chakra” and “Beige Blue Trace” pop on either side of  this luminous “Blue Agate”.

Sometimes the simplest gestures have great effect… We completed the composition by placing two different Prisms, one on each end.  I favor Prisms as a way of finishing designs, as they taper down in size from the other beads in the collection, and all match each other for size so well.  Here we’ve used her very reflective “Green Prism” opposite a “Light Turquoise Prism”.

It’s always satisfying to work with an existing set of beads and edit and redesign the arrangement to create fresh compositions for their owner…  It’s part of the joy of Trollbeads that they are truly a design kit from which countless numbers of pieces may be created.  Don’t hesitate to drop by with your beads for a consultation, we’d love to play and help you make something new and wonderful.
