Trollbeads Design Challenge: Day 2

IMG_1157Day two, and I couldn’t wait to play again!

IMG_1165I carefully took apart my day 1 bracelet… I loved it, and would happily have kept wearing it, but I have a photo, and if I miss it at the end of the 30 days I can always whip it back up again!  All the beads went back onto the play tray to form my bead “palette”, or toolkit.  It is so inspiring to see them all lined up like that: endless potential!

IMG_1160This new “Green Rhyolite” was the starting point for today’s bracelet.  It has a fascinating array of colours in it, from grey, to rust, to lavender, to pistachio green.  In the miraculous way that nature’s paintbrush has, somehow this mix of colours works perfectly.  I decided to create a neutral and natural palette around this gorgeous bead to allow it to truly glow.

One of the fun surprise combinations across which I stumbled is this russet toned “Golden Cave” with the rose gold sparkle in my “Blue Desert” and a soft apricot “Pink Prism”… delicious!

IMG_1156I had forgotten how much I like “Smoky Quartz” with the ivory tones of this creamy armadillo and the retired “Brown Dot”.  “brown desert” adds a little sparkle.

stay tuned for day 3…

  1. Absolutely love this one! Several favourites I own as well are represented, so no shocker there…but that multicoloured rhyolite…oh my! I may need to get myself one of those for my trollie toolbox!

  2. Agree with Michelle – have never seen a Rhyolite with these tones! Amazing and unusual! So pretty against the golds!
