X by Trollbeads LE Pink Links Inspiration

Following the release of X by Trollbeads Valentine’s 2015 collection, this blog post brings some inspiration with the Limited Edition Pink Links.

X by Trollbeads has recently undergone some changes with its marketing / branding. X by Trollbeads is now known as X Jewellery. I presume this is to further distance X  from the original Trollbeads line, as although both lines are from the Trollbeads company, they are separate brands with different concepts which will appeal to different target markets. I have still referred to them as X by Trollbeads as this is what most people will undoubtedly still call them until the new name of X Jewellery becomes familiar.

Anyway, back to the subject of the LE pink rubber X links. Whilst I am more of a ‘pastel person, I am most definitely a ‘pink person’, and as such I am drawn to anything pink, whatever the shade! These links are what I would call a ‘hot pink’, with cerise tones. Whilst they are a bit vibrant on their own, they look stunning combined with silver and black, and definitely draw attention to your wrist. I think they will get a lot of wear during the summer, and envisage wearing them with my long black maxi dress and strappy sandals. They will look even better against tanned skin!

I absolutely love the ‘Bloom X Bite’ release from Spring 2014, and have combined the pink links with these silvers, and also some black links, to create striking effects. So without further a do, here are some photos …

Have you succumbed to the pink links yet? I would love to hear what other people think of them and how you have styled them!

Poppies for the Fallen – X by Trollbeads

This Trollbeads blog post brings an X by Trollbeads bracelet that I have put together as a mark of remembrance to all those who have given their lives for the peace and freedom we enjoy today.

During the First World War, much of the fighting took place in Western Europe. Beautiful countryside was blasted, bombed and fought over, turning to barren fields of mud where little or nothing could grow. Bright red Flanders poppies however, were delicate but resilient flowers and grew in their thousands, flourishing even in the middle of chaos and destruction.  The red field poppy came to be known as an internationally recognised symbol of Remembrance, and this is the inspiration behind this bracelet.

This bracelet has X by Trollbeads ‘Poppy Decadence’ as a focal piece, combined with alternating red / black x links, and finished off with a silver lock. The red links are Limited Edition links from X by Trollbeads Christmas 2014 collection.

The First World War officially ended  at 11 am  on 11th November 1918 – Armistice Day. Each year, on the eleventh hour on the eleventh day on the eleventh month millions of people observe a Two Minute Silence in the memory of those who have been affected in all conflicts.

Remembrance Sunday, the second Sunday in November, is the day traditionally put aside for services to remember the service men and women who have lost their lives during conflicts, hence the timing of this post.
