I just could not resist a review of the Trollbeads Daydream Blossom. This bead is limited edition bead, and only available from US retailers holding trunk shows to mark the release of the Trollbeads Christmas 2013 collection.
It is a beautiful bead that manages to combine both strength and delicacy from its eclectic design and colour combinations.
At the core of the bead is a swirl of claret, mint green and turquoise; and it is in this respect that the beads show some variation. The bead shown here has a lovely flash of mint visible. Floating near the surface of the c;ear glass are a group of five flowers (blue, pink, orange, green and yellow), and the design is replicated on the other side of the bead, so there are ten flowers in total.
Whilst the range of colours in this bead create endless possibilities for matching it with other beads, I feel it needs to be matched with simplicity in order to fully appreciate its design. Self coloured or neutral coloured beads are the way to go here!
Being in the UK, I was lucky enough to be able to order one of these, thanks to the lovely Beth at Trollbeads Studio!
If you have this bead, then let me know how you wear it. And if you don’t have it, still let me know your ideas!
