The clouds only returned to the North Shore a couple of weeks ago, but already we’re missing our sunshine… We’re in those doldrums between the release of the Autumn 2012 collection and the fast approaching, fabulous Christmas 2012 Trollbeads collection. For those of you Northerners who also are craving a little light, join us for a little tropical getaway… courtesy of RT’s “Bahamas Bracelet”. So sit down, cuddle up to your coffee and take a few minutes of warm relaxation….
This bracelet was inspired by a spring trip to the beautiful Bahamas… clear blue water, white sand beaches, palm trees swaying in the warm wind… ahhh (I’m in my happy place…)
You may recall that we took a peek at this bracelet, back when it was barely a whisper of sand on a beach towel….
Where else to begin, than with a perfect “Beach”? This one really is deep and luminous, with a generous dose of rose gold sparkle. Behind it you can see RT’s high contrast “Urchin”.
RT’s design trademark is a predominance of extraordinary uniques… and this bracelet is no exception. This intensely blue and textured unique was one that we found just for her on our Spring trip to Trollbeads’ own Tivoli, in Copenhagen.
This unique is brings to mind the regular collection design, “Urchin”… it has the same creamy background, and the same budded dots – but on a very different scale. These dots are tiny and widely spaced, giving this bead the look of a “Baby Urchin”… So sweet!
This crisp turquoise and white bead is so perfectly tropical, it makes me yearn for gauzy printed sundresses, crisp cotton beach towels and a killer bikini. It’s interesting to note that this is the only bead on the bracelet that includes pure white – all the other whites are in fact a warmer ivory tone.
This amazing unique sings on this composition… so unusual, and such a great colour combination! RT’s “Mermaid” is right at home in these warm waters, as are a number of other appropriate silvers… “Pisces”, “Palm Island”, “Crab”, “Treasures” and the “Fish Lock” all complete the beach theme of this design.
Clockwise from clasp: “Fish Lock”, “Pisces”, “Classic Unique”, “Conch”, “Blue Fizz”, “Joyful”, “Urchin”, “Beach”, “Treasures”, “Blue Stripe”, “Classic Unique”, “Palm Island”, “Conch”, “Classic Unique”, “Crab, “Classic Unique”, “Classic Unique”, “Mermaid”, “Classic Unique”, “Turquoise Ribbon”.
Well… it was a short getaway, but so worth it. Please return your seat to the upright position and ensure your tray tables and belongings are stowed in preparation for landing back in our cold & soggy hemisphere…
Thank you for flying Tartooful Daydream, (and thank you RT!)
