Trollbeads Inspiration: Rose Gold

Of the group of spectacular gold bracelets we designed, this one must be my very favorite… The blush pink and the gold make such a harmonious combination… and there are so many beads in the Trollbeads collection that are simply perfect for this type of design.  Beads such as “Pink Desert”, “Pink Gold”, “Golden Cave” and “Rosa Pearl” are already among my favorite designs, and they sing when placed on a spectacular 18k gold chain.

18k gold “Hydrangea” is a delicate note on this design, quietly glowing from between “Pink Desert and “Golden Cave”.  Isn’t “Pink Desert” amazing when viewed from the side like this?  It’s an unexpected angle, but it’s always fun to see how the beads look from different directions – sometimes a new jewel is found for my Fantasy necklace!

An interesting note about “Golden Cave”… recently I have noticed a number of online retailers listing these lovelies for far more than recommended retail, saying that they are retired.  For the record, these beads were not among those listed as retired in January, they are still available through our Canadian Distributor, and I’ve heard nothing about them being retired.  Caveat emptor!

The Rosa Pearl is a bead that I have always liked, but that recently I have come to appreciate even more.  We have a few ladies working on soft pink designs, so we’ve had the pleasure of seeing more of these than usual over the past few months.  We’ve enjoyed seeing the variety of shapes and colours… wouldn’t it be fun to see an entire bracelet composed of different shades of pearls interspersed with silver?

Clockwise from clasp:  “Golden Heart Clasp”, “Pink Desert”, “18k gold Hydrangea”, “Golden Cave”, “Paradise Birds”, “Rose Quartz”, “Dewdrops”, “Rose Quartz, round”, “Silver Whorl”, “Golden Cave”, “Rosa Pearl”.
