Inspiration – ‘Ethnic Bronze’

Todays inspiration brings a mix of old and new in rich bronze, gold, brown and cream tones.

Here we have Trollbeads Goldstone and Zanzibar which retired this year, along with Trollbeads Magical Lamp, Scirocco, Kaleidoscope  and Nomad, which were new to the collection this Spring.

Harmony unites  the old and new whilst a rich Golden Quartz and Gold Silver Trace adds that luxurious feel to the composition. The choice of silvers in this bracelet  give it an ethnic / Aztec vibe, and work really well with the choice of glass and stone beads.

The sparkle of the Goldstone fits perfectly with the copper sparkle  in Scirocco and Magical Lamp.

For those of you that do not have the now retired Goldstone or Zanzibar, here are a couple of close up shots. If they are something that you would like to add to your collection then now is the time to get them before stocks are depleted.

I am sure you will agree that whilst Goldstone is a man-made stone, this does not detract from the fact that it will add an instant touch of luxury to virtually any composition.
