Trollbeads Inspiration: Delightful Aurora

joyful7

As always, when a new bead design comes out, we are eager to experiment with it; to play and see how it works with other items in the Trollbeads collection, and particularly how it blends with the beads in our own collections!

It’s like adding a new piece of furniture to one’s home – it makes one look over the rest of the house and experiment with new arrangements for the rest of one’s possessions.

joyful3On the weekend Cristi experimented with the newly released “Faceted Aurora”, and found that it enhances so many wonderful palettes.  With its fascinating mists of blue, red, amber, pink and purple, it has a chameleon ability take on nearly any appearance and mood, depending on its surroundings.

joyful4In this composition Cristi played with colours that many of you already have in your collections.  Clear golden ambers, soft warm pinks and pale greyed blues combine here to make a gentle and lovely palette that is wearable every day.  I find these colours delightful – it simply makes me happy to see them!

  1. Pretty and unusual color combination! Beautifully balanced, and I adore the small blue unique with brown and yellow – so sorry I missed it!

  2. I adore the new Stories of You lock. I only wish it could be bought separately. Let’s hope Trollbeads eventually make it available to purchase individually.
