Trollbeads Joy – New Uniques Now In Stock!


new-uniques-4We just received an enormous, absolutely gorgeous shipment of Universal Uniques from Trollbeads Canada… so many different, hard-to-find colours and patterns, we are in heaven.

Naturally, like any good Trollie we right away began playing and building bracelets to see some of the possible combinations for the new designs… This delicate palette of softest pink and fresh green was a pleasure to play with, and simply loved the camera!

new-uniques-5Perhaps it’s because so many of these bead designs are so transparent… they allow the light to pass through and reflect off the polished silver core at the heart of each bead.  The refracted light illuminates each bead, making each one appear to glow from within.

new-uniques-3We paired the glass with iconic winter design silvers such as “Snow”, “Large Berry” and the new “Christmas Tree”.  Who says a Christmas Bracelet has to be red and green?  This warm yet icy combination would suit me just fine….


Clockwise from clasp:  “Lock with buds”, “Universal Unique”, “Autumn Splendour”, “Universal Unique”, “Large Berry”, “Universal Unique”, “Organic Hearts”, “Universal Unique”, “Hearts Within”, “Universal Unique”, “Universal Unique”, “Snow”, “Universal Unique”, “Christmas Tree”, “Universal Unique”, “Universal Unique”.
