December is finally upon us and every day brings us closer to the holiday festivities! In this post, I take a look at Trollbeads Decoration Kit, a limited edition kit released for Christmas 2012. Of the two glass kits released for this season, I was drawn much more to the Decoration Kit with its black, grey, and glitter tones because these beads can be utilized and worn all year round rather than restricted to Christmas-time. That being said, the photos do not do these justice! I was so happy when I opened my package and saw how wonderfully crafted these are.
There are 6 glass beads in the kit and the notable difference right off is that they are opaque glass, and not clear like most of Trollbeads’ glass. These are limited edition uniques that are produced in wide availability and consistency. The beads are Flower Shadow, Festive Feather, Golden Petals, Fireside Glow, Night Blossom and Golden Bauble (respectively). I’ve yet to feature any of these types of designs so they’ll be coming soon in the future. Here’s a look at each individual bead:
These are the best production uniques that Trollbeads has offered in a while because of the color coordination and the fabulous designs. The grey and brown remind me of a warm and cozy winter’s night, sipping hot chocolate by the fire. You also can’t go wrong with glitter! The tough part was to find beads to match this wonderful kit; grey is not a common color in the Trollbeads palette but I did wind up finding some beautiful uniques and gemstones to complement the kit.
