A garden of Trollflowers

On a day like today it is hard to remember that Spring really is here – sometimes it takes a glimpse of determined daffodils or the alien beauty of new peony stalks to remind us that Spring could take us by surprise at any moment with brilliant warm sunshine and an explosion of flowers.  Take a walk with me through this lovely Spring garden, full of Trollflowers….

So many special flowers are nodding brightly in its beds:  Universal Uniques in impossible-to-find colour combinations, small core one-of-a-kinds, rare retired colours of familiar faces, and even this Limited Edition World Tour Bead, from the original Denmark Series: Anemones.  How beautiful is it’s citrus punch paired with deep blue?!

These two beads are placed next to each other with a wink and a smile… They are, of course, both “Antique Flower”.  The one with the deep green background is the original colour.  A few months following its release, it was changed to the celadon green tone.

This jaw-droppingly gorgeous bead arrived at Tartooful for a Universal Uniques Trunk show last year… It was destined to be the crowning glory in this Trollflower garden.  Big, bold and in such a lush colour, it reminds me of an oversized, blowsy blossom such as a peony, old fashioned rose, or perhaps a late summer dahlia!

Of course, the underpinning that complements all the blossoms in any garden is the green foliage.  In this bracelet design, the greens play an important role, enhancing the bright colours and providing structure to what otherwise might appear to be a random set of colours.  Pictured here from Left to right are “Snowdrop”, “Forest Flowers” and a Unique.

Clockwise from clasp:  “Small Flower Clasp”, (Sterling Silver floral Keepers are made by the bracelet’s owner, and all silver spacer beads are non-Troll), “Unique”, “Forest Flowers”, “Snowdrop”, “Grandma’s Favorite”, “Antique Flower – current version”, “Antique Flower – original version”, “Unique”, “Unique”, “Universal Unique”, “Turquoise Flower”, “Midnight Flowers”, “Antique Flower – original version”, “Pale Rose Flower”, “Universal Unique”, “Limited Edition Denmark World Tour Anemones”, “Unique”, (non-troll glass).

This Trollflower garden, with it’s rich bouquet of Spring colour makes me feel happy, simply by looking at it.
