What Trollbeads Am I wearing? Spicy Pink Mix

IMG_8369

IMG_8363I love pairing my bracelets.  I don’t consciously create designs planning to wear them together, but I am always delighted by the effect of pairing various designs.  It’s a whole sub-area of composition!

Today I’m sharing a few snaps of two of my recently renovated bracelets, showing how they can play

Originally these two bracelet palettes were combined into one design that I affectionately called “Copper & Pomegranates”.  It ranged from deep crimson to lightest rose pink, with a healthy dose of sparkle and some spicy undertones.  I loved it and wore it a ton!

IMG_8362In fact, I loved those colours so very much that I slowly ended up adopting a number of similarly coloured beads that wound up being someone inappropriately sprinkled among other designs, in an attempt to justify their acquisition.  (“I want I need I must have”… don’t judge me…)  In the end I had to face facts…

IMG_8361My beloved bracelet had in fact expanded to become two.  So, I sat down and considered… I could have simply created a second, very similar “Copper & Pomegranates”, but I decided that it was much more interesting to create two quite different, complementary bracelets.  This gives me so many more options!

IMG_8365Now I can wear the two bracelets together or apart – or pair each of them with other designs for lots of new combinations.  For example, I often wear the soft pink together with my other pastel blue or green compositions for a completely different look.  The raspberry and chocolate bracelet is wonderful with other earth tones.

In the end, I’m delighted with the changes to what felt like an absolutely “sacred” composition.  I have photos, I can always restore it to its former self… but right now I am loving the new mix!
