This blog post brings a review of the second glass kit from Trollbeads Christmas 2014 ‘The Wishes Collection’ – the ‘Classic Christmas Kit’.
This glass kit features a palette of festive reds and greens and incorporates Christmas themed designs including a christmas tree, holly and poinsettia. The vibrancy and festivity of this kit make it hard to resist!
Below are some close up shots of the individual beads …
As with the Magic Winter kit, I have combined the beads with new and existing festive silvers. In the first two individual shots you can see two of the new silvers ‘Holly Bushes‘ and silver ‘Eternal Love‘.
I have to admit that some of the other silvers from this release, such as mouse, cat and parrot faces, were not to my personal taste. However, I can see that they have a certain whimsical feel to them that will appeal to others.
I was very tempted by the Bow Lock, but would have only really worn it with this bracelet so decided to leave it.
I also adore the Lucky Love gold and silver bead but the higher price tag due to the gold was a stumbler at this time of year. ‘Live, Love & Forgive’ and ‘Wishing Star’ from the recent ‘Gold – Love Art’ release are still high up on my wish list but I never seem to get round to getting the gold due to all the other beautiful releases that keep coming throughout the year!
