It’s the first day of winter and just a few days from Christmas! For today’s post, I’m highlighting the Trollbeads Holiday Kit and a festive inspirational bracelet for the season. This kit was one of two that came out with the Winter 2015 Collection, and I reviewed the Holly Jolly Kit recently. I love this brand’s glass beads and the Holiday Kit is definitely my favorite from this release. Since they do not have names, I’ve dubbed them: Poinsettia, Snowflake, Mouse, Holly, Night Sky, and Mistletoe.
Even though these beads don’t have names, the designs are easy to distinguish. This kit has a blue and white theme, but the patterns are very fitting for the season. The Poinsettia, Mistletoe, and Snowflake were actually seen in the uniques around this time last year, but they are now bigger in size which I appreciate. The Mouse is a fun critter bead and also one that was available before, but it definitely brings to mind the Night Before Christmas story. The two new patterns are the Holly and Night Sky; the Holly bead has green leafy detailing with multi-colored dots and there’s nice glitter accents in the Night Sky bead.
Trollbeads glass have small cores which are only compatible with threadless bracelets, like Trollbeads and *redbalifrog*. My recommended retailers are the official Trollbeads website, Trollbeads Gallery, Perlen, and Oromoda. I love this wintry bracelet I’ve created with the kit and complementary beads. Which Christmas kit is your favorite?
