Trollbeads Inspiration: A Moment of Golden Calm

IMG_7700Everyone needs a moment like this….

IMG_7695Well, we’re officially in the middle of the busiest season of the year… There’s so much to do, and so little time in which to do it!  Shopping lists, parties, end-of-year concerts and recitals, baking, wrapping, decorating… it’s dizzying.  Not only are we running about being Santa’s helpers, but we’re supposed to be doing it all gracefully, with

IMG_7690adoring children by our side, making precious childhood memories.  That’s certainly how I remember my Mother juggling it all.  I don’t know how your house manages it all, but I think I don’t quite measure up to “Graceful” all the time.  I think it’s more of a “Frazzled and Grumpy” approach.  Still, it’s good to have goals, and when those

IMG_7689magical moments do happen, it’s all worth it.

We have one amazing lady who we count as a client and friend, who does manage to navigate the rough waters of life with exceptional grace.  She works in a challenging and exhausting field, keeps a beautiful home, is a great Mother, Wife and Daughter

IMG_7696and still produces the most phenomenal baking I have ever seen.  (Truly, it puts the most perfect confections in magazines to shame…)  I know what you’re thinking, but no, despite all that we adore her!  She has an aura of kindness and calm that follows her, and is so inspiring.  Perhaps it’s not surprising that a calm and elegantly beautiful bracelet design like this one, belongs to her.


IMG_7692This breathtaking bracelet is quite possibly the loveliest I’ve ever seen.  With the subtlest of soft, warm blues, a hint of blush pink, a deft mix of textures, the sparkle of diamonds, and a generous dose of gold, this is a tour de force bracelet.  Just looking at it is like honey for the soul, and as good as a day at the spa.  It’s a moment of calm that we can all enjoy, thanks to N.O.  (Thank you!)

  1. Oh my, this is indeed a wonderfully warm and calming bracelet – beautiful! Such a subtle and artful mix of beads, and I think that is the most gorgeous blue desert I’ve ever seen. Sending you good Troll vibes, and I hope the challenges become easier to manage soon, N.O.!

  2. Wow! This composition is absolutely beautiful N; as all the bracelets you create usually are. And Cathy’s words to describe it (and the others) sweeps one up as usual too. Wishing you both all the best; virtual (((hugs))) all around.

  3. In this case all that glitters is really Gold and what a different it makes to the beads.

    All the very best to ….. hope her life and that of her loved ones takes a turn for the better – wishing her a content and heart-warming festive season.
