Have you begun to transition your Summer bracelets for the new season? Even if you’re the sort of terribly organized and decisive person who creates forever bracelet designs, there’s always room for a seasonal “tweak”….
In some cases, to “winterize’ a pink bracelet design I’ve played with chocolate browns, rich cinnamon tones or greys. They’re all great solutions, depending on what sort of pink you have to begin with. In today’s project I’ve utilized some of the beautiful new designs from the Autumn Trollbeads collection. They’re a subtle blend of hues, with soft buff tones, glittering copper and hints of pink, purple and blue.
They demand similarly subtle companions, and are the perfect way to create a soft pink bracelet that transitions gracefully from late Summer to Autumn. Try layering this type of bracelet with an all amber bracelet, or a copper bangle to give it even more of an Autumnal feel.
When creating this design, I began with Fragile Purity, as I liked the way it set the palette of soft pink, with just a touch of light mossy green. That unabashedly pretty bead is framed by two of the new collection additions, “Soul of Sunshine” and “Nature Unity”, which right away take the edge off the “pretty pink” and make the design so much more subtle and interesting! Note the way that the pink brings out all the hints of pink, green and blue that are hiding in these fascinating beads…
This Rainbow Bridge just begged to be a part of this design. It possesses the perfect blend of green, apricot, plum and even hints at blue around the edges.
