Whilst from the start I have appreciated the design and craftsmanship of X by Trollbeads, the slightly edgier and more urban style was not something that appealed to my personal taste. The Bloom X Bite release brings out a new, more delicate and more feminine side to X by Trollbeads, one that does appeal to me much more.
My favourite links from this release are ‘Poppy Decadence’, ‘Hummingbird’ and ‘Bloom’, and all three are beautifully detailed. I adore the little Hummingbird, and would love to see a similar silver appear in the original Trollbeads collection.
Below are some images that show how the new links can be used together on a bracelet. I have tried to show examples of just silver and bronze bracelets, and then also bracelets including the rubber links, as I feel the rubber links give quite a different look, even using the same decorative links. As a guide for sizing, these bracelets each have 18 links (a mixture of singles and doubles, a double counting as two links), my wrists are 16cm and the bracelet designs below fit / hang just right.
