Continuing my spotlight on past Trollbeads holiday kits is a look at the limited edition Blue Christmas Kit from 2011. This goes back a few years and includes one of the first Christmas sets from the brand in recent history. For that year, Trollbeads released two kits, Blue Christmas and Red Christmas which have been staples for holiday bracelets. This was a bit before my time, but they’re still relatively easy to find and I was able to purchase a whole kit earlier in the year even though I had a couple of the beads already.
Of the two kits, Blue Christmas is the more versatile and less traditionally Christmas-ey which I tend to gravitate towards. The beads are called Moonlit Ice, White Tinsel, Blue Snowflake, Blue Tinsel, Angel’s Wings, and Snow Swirls. The main colors are white and blue with accents of brown. All the beads have a white opaque base with the exception of Blue Tinsel.
Moonlit Ice features a checkered blue pattern with a vertical and horizontal light blue lines. White Tinsel is a quintessential white glitter design and pairs perfectly with Sweet Frankincense (from the Sweet Christmas Kit) and Golden Bauble (from the Decoration Kit). Blue Snowflake looks more like a quilted design than a snowflake as it is dark blue on white glass. Blue Tinsel is my favorite from this kit and one I have multiples of; it is an opaque navy bead with glitter otherwise known as an ornament unique. Angel’s Wings is a blue and grey spinner flower encircling the glass. Lastly, Snow Swirls is a harlequin design with a dark brown center and blue edging on a white base.
These have small cores which only go on threadless bracelets like Trollbeads and *redbalifrog*. I matched up the Blue Christmas kit with some winter themed silvers to create a frosty holiday arrangement that can be worn all season. What do you think of this wintry Trollbeads kit? Have you gotten any of these beads before?
