Celebrate the idea-that every gesture, no matter how small, can promote personal growth and the birth of deep and meaningful connections with others. Bead samples are provided by Trollbeads. Today I have a sampling of some of the new spring beads from Trollbeads. It’s still winter in Canada although we have not had much snow this year. I look forward to seeing everything grow and turn green again. These beads make me feel happy and excited for the return of spring. A piece I was especially excited to see is the Leather Cord Bracelet in Black. Similar in style to the leather necklace, it’s a gr ..read more

Bead samples are provided by TrueBeadz.com. Please check out their website to see many of the products used here. Today I’ve got a short blog post to discuss the True Beadz Christmas Collection, featuring some stoppers and locks. Stoppers and locks are fairly new to the brand, as is their chain bracelet. The Red Candy Lock and Stoppers are perfect for making one think of candy canes and sweets at Christmas! The glass garland bead is also a favourite of mine. It makes a wonderful addition to my Christmas themed beads. The stoppers are similar to OHM’s, in that they have the tiny silicone inser ..read more

A butterfly to help you prepare for change. Break out of your cocoon and unleash the wonders within you! Change can be big or small. Embrace it and trust your journey. Bead samples are provided by Trollbeads.com. Today I’ve got a short blog post with some pictures of the four new butterfly beads, designed by Tenzin Phuntsok and Kalden Chophel. They are completely opaque, which I know will really appeal to some collectors. They each have a name, but I think of them by colour: Wings of Energy (orange), Wings of Success (green), Wings of Serenity (blue) and Wings of Passion (pink). Trollbead acci ..read more

Trollbeads Life is a Miracle

200 million years ago, turtles mingled with the dinosaurs. With their protective shields and navigational abilities, they have stood the test of time and change. From their inception on a sandy shore, the turtle hatches from an egg, and then begins a dangerous journey towards the ocean. Not everyone will make it. But those who do always come back to the same beach where their life started to lay their own eggs. Such is the miracle and circle of life. The turtle is the master of its own destiny and must seek its own happiness. Once it reaches the water, it starts growing and takes on its majest ..read more

Permanent Bracelets

For the first time in 8 years I went on a trip (Disney World) and didn’t take any beads or bracelets with me. I knew I would be wearing a MagicBand the whole time, so really, there was no point. This weekend I had some free time and looked through my bead boxes and wondered what I could do to make more use out of the many gorgeous beads I have. I’ve been getting samples and doing this blog since 2016, so there are many beads just sitting around, and I feel a bit sad for them! I don’t build bracelets every day anymore, maybe just once or twice a week. So, I made up a bunch of ‘grab and go’ brac ..read more

We had a bit of an ice storm where I live and so with school cancelled for the day, I thought I’d finish off my trio of blog posts showing parts of the Trollbeads spring beads. The colours featured in the Protection collection are super pretty. They feature the new small faceted beads in Feldspar Moonstone, Strawberry Quartz and Rose Quartz. I also have the darling silver Bird’s Nest, the Trinity of the Heart Bead, the Daisy Spacer and the Daisy Clasp. The quite spectacular Trinity of the Heart with its Rose Quartz, Strawberry Quartz and Feldspar Moonstone will fill you with love, harmony and ..read more

Today I have some photos of a selection of beads from the Trollbeads Music & Theatre collection. Trollbeads has a new marketing scheme whereby they are no longer naming collections by season. Instead of calling the large release in January the spring collection, it has been divided into three collections: Music & Theatre, Hope & New Beginnings and Protection. I’ll do blog posts of the other two collections over the next two weekends. For me as a Canadian, it makes sense not to call the January release a spring collection, because January in Canada is nowhere even close to being spr ..read more

This year, OHM is trying a different format for their annual Beadmas celebration. People are invited to help design a bead. There are 12 different teams with themes. Once the bead has been made, OHM will donate 20% of the proceeds to a charity and each team has chosen a different charity. Trish (the_mcctrish) and I have chosen a travel theme and our team is called Fly Away. Our charity is a women’s shelter in our city called Anova. We each teach some children who live in shelters and feel it’s important they and their moms get support. So, if you are interested in giving ideas for a travel the ..read more

Silent, soft, and slow the first snowflakes are falling, making branches bend low and trails be like new canvas, ready for footsteps to create stories. Like a new beginning – a fresh start. Let’s make snow angels. Let’s build snowmen and snow huts. Create a snowball – and throw it! People are made of stories. Some are defining and some are just for fun. Look out for the snow fairy … maybe even within yourself … and invite her out to play. Welcome to the Let it Snow collection. Every story has a bead. The collection will be available online and in-stores November 4, 2022. Bead samples are provi ..read more
