It’s a question that has arisen more than a few times over the past couple of weeks… is your Trollbeads collection more “Conceptual” or “Practical”? If this isn’t a topic that you’ve considered before, you may not be familiar with the dilemma.
We’ve noticed over the years that there are certain bead designs, and types of compositions that lend themselves to daily wear – the white tees and blue jeans of the Trollbeads collection, if you will. Then there are other bead designs that are destined only for more occasional wear. What’s a Trollie with broad tastes to do?
We’ve remarked before on beads that are best enjoyed as tiny, perfect sculptures. Examples include the “Seer” the “Buddha”, and the “Juggler”. They invite display on a acrylic stand – imagine how fascinating to have a grouping of these miniature objets d’art on a side table.
Understand that I love these beads… everything about them – flat bottoms and all. In my collection there is room for all sorts of beads; daily use ones as well as the ones that I will enjoy viewing more than wearing. That is truly the heart of the matter.
Whether it’s a single bead, or an entire composition that only gets worn on occasion, the important thing is to enjoy your collection. Enjoy wearing those go-to designs, those “Practical” pieces that work effortlessly with your busy life… and equally enjoy those “Conceptual” ones that give you joy every time you glance at your dressing table. Like a fabulous pair of stilettos, or the perfect shade of red lipstick, those trickier bracelets are just right for certain occasions.
So give yourself permission to let go of any misplaced guilt, and revel in those compositions every day when you see them, knowing they will be waiting for you when the moment is right.
Today we’ve offered some fabulous examples of more “Conceptual” designs – total eye candy! Stay tuned tomorrow for an equally beautiful bracelet that is destined for everyday enjoyment.
