Trollbeads Inspiration: Pink Moss

moss2

pink-fernWhen on a recent dayhike we spotted these unusual mosses growing in a lush spot on the coastline… The photo doesn’t begin to fully capture the amazing range of colour!  Olive green, oxblood, vicuna, parchment and softest pink all combined to give an overall feathery, rosy haze.  Stunning!  I had to stop, take out the camera and try

I am always playing with colour pairings for pink.  I love pink, but tend to wear it with neutrals such as olive or grey… or unexpected combinations such as acid green… so that it’s not so “little girl” and predictable.  Even in the garden I like to plant Lady’s Mantle underneath traditional,

  1. Gorgeous! Just beautiful one of my favorite all-Trollbead bracelets! You have captured the Moss perfectly… and used some favorite beads doing so like Green & Purple Flower Mosaics, an Opaque OOAK Amber, faceted Pink Quartz, two Golden Caves, …and the Lace Lock is perfect!

  2. Wow!! I didn’t know that moss could be so pretty…. Beautiful colours!! I love how you have photographed the bracelet with the sunlight sparkling through the beads. ANOTHER stunning post, Cathy!!
