Trollbeads Inspiration: Cathy’s Copper & Pomegranate Update


IMG_4560One of my favorite combinations that I like to toss together is what I call my “Copper and Pomegranate” bracelet.  It’s evolved many times, changing as beads come and go, but the mood stays the same, and I never tire of wearing it.  It;s been written up lots of times in this blog, if you’re interested in seeing the older versions.

IMG_4563Last week Cristi gave me the gift of a unique bead that she had spotted… she knew as soon as it caught her eye that it was perfect for my collection, with warm golden yellow, my very favorite apricot shade of pink, and a delicious touch of lilac.

IMG_4561It inspired me (as she knew it would) to try adding my Lavender Jade to this combination, and isn’t it wonderful?  The new bead settles the lavender in nicely, and pulls the entire palette together in a most satisfying way.  I can’t wait to try using it for an exuberant easter coloured bracelet, with all soft pastel notes, as well!

Thank you again for the new addition to my collection, Cristi… I’ll treasure it.
