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!

Inspiration – ‘Blue Basics’

This Trollbeads inspiration blog post brings together Trollbeads and X by Trollbeads with some simple combinations based on a colour palette of matte blues and creams.

Sometimes, less can be more. Only a few beads are used here but I feel that the simplicity of these pieces draws attention to the individual beads and the Ocean Blue X by Trollbeads links unite the pieces with a matte blue colour theme.

I have been teaming these pieces today with stonewash skinny jeans and a cream jumper and they finish off the outfit perfectly. Here are some more close up shots of the individual pieces …

This collection sees the release of X by Trollbeads second set of limited edition rubber links, this time in a very festive red! Not only will these red links serve well for the Christmas season, I can envisage them working well with any Valentines themed links too.

X by Trollbeads ‘Bloom X Bite’ Spring 2014 collection

X by Trollbeads Spring 2014 collection ‘Bloom X Bite’ made its debut on 26th February 2014.

The collection has a very elegant, timeless and feminine feel to it, somewhat different to the generally more urban and edgy pieces  currently in the collection. This is in a good way though, and goes to demonstrate the versatility of the X by Trollbeads brand.

For those of you who have not yet been tempted with X by Trollbeads, this release may well be the one to turn your head!

Ten new silver double links make their debut in this release. The central theme is one of flora and fauna – very fitting for a Spring release – and this is reflected in the name of the collection, ‘Bloom X Bite’ .

Below are details of the new links:

Although there were a few floral themed links in the launch collection (Flower, Leaves and Bunch of Flowers), they were not as intricately detailed as these new links. Poppy Decadence has to be my favourite link from this release, and that is down to the beautiful detailing on the flower.

Below are some of X by Trollbeads campaign images, showing the links being used in various bracelet compositions. These give a good idea of the aesthetically pleasing style that can be achieved.

I would love to hear what people think of this new release. Do you prefer the timeless and elegant feel to the new pieces or do you lean more toward the contemporary and urban pieces??

X by Trollbeads Valentines Collection 2014

Valentines 2014 sees the release of three new links for X by Trollbeads.

All images are X by Trollbeads stock images – please do not reproduce without crediting. 

Love Bubble   £37
Love Bubble £37

‘Love Bubble’ provides a modern take on the language of love. A simple link but one that definitely gets the message across. What better way to say ‘I love you’!

Love Bugs   £37
Love Bugs £37

‘Love Bugs’ has to be one of my favourite X by Trollbeads links so far. It is so sweet, albeit a little bit naughty 😉

 

Struck by Love   £37
Struck by Love £37

‘Struck by Love’ offers a more classic Valentines design, depicting an arrow head and a heart.

 

Below is a campaign image from Trollbeads showing all three links on a bracelet.

X by Trollbeads Christmas Collection 2013

X by Trollbeads Christmas 2013 collection sees the  introduction of a new lock and two new links.  These three new additions embrace a love theme as opposed to a traditional festive Christmas theme.

All images are X by Trollbeads stock images – please do not reproduce without crediting. 

Heart Within Lock   £52
Heart Within Lock £52

The Heart Within lock is a great complement to the silver and gold versions of the single ‘Heart Within’ link and the matching silver ‘Double Heart Within’ link from the launch release. This lock is subtle enough for everyday wear, but also makes a great addition to any Valentines themed release.

XOXO   £44
XOXO £44

Another double link which is in a similar style to the ‘Love’ link from the launch collection. Again, both of these will be very fitting come Valentines Day. 

Honey Cubs   £62
Honey Cubs £62

Honey Cubs is the most expensive of the three pieces, however this is reflected in the amount of detail that has been put into the cubs. There is already a single link featuring a bear (Hugging Bear) from the launch release, however that bear does not have the same amount of detailing.

This is a small release, particularly when compared with the original Trollbeads line Christmas releases,. This however is a not a bad thing for many Trollbeads collectors, as this year has seen many new releases and limited editions (particularly with reference to the original Trollbeads line).

X by Trollbeads Debut Collection.
