Trollbeads Inspiration: “is it me, or are the models getting thinner?”

Many of you have been by to visit our fabulously thin friend… what fun to have a 2011 Limited Edition Trollbeads Skeleton in the shop to play with!  We’ve sampled the various components of the necklace, making up bracelets with the parts, as well as adding so many different types of beads to shake up the look.  It’s such a great toy….

When one of the new 18k gold and diamond “Bougainvillea” beads arrived recently, we couldn’t resist adding it to the skeleton’s already-golden neckline.  This graceful bead features a cascade of tiny buds, opening into blossoms with a diamond at the heart of each one.  It is sparkling, luxurious and truly unique in its design.

Here the golden neck bead that is a part of the skeleton is visible, peeking above the sparkling Bougainvillea.  The pair of them give an ultra-luxe, statement collier to our diminutive model.  Speaking of whom – isn’t it fantastic, the angle that his head tilts, the graceful drop of his hand… it’s as though he’s striking a vogue pose, just for us.  Perhaps he’s testing the limits of the theory that one can never be too thin or too rich…

I love the golden reflection on the smooth sterling silver.  I think if I owned this necklace I’d constantly be playing with different additions, seeing the effect of different colours and forms.  Imagine him with a Garnet Bead, silver at the neck… or a shimmering prism… or a row of pearls for the spine… Even a tiny safety chain could form a delicate, swaying necklace for him.    The possibilities are, as always with Trollbeads,  beautifully endless.
