While we’re waiting for the next release from Trollbeads, I thought I’d feature one of my favorite glass kits from this brand. I’ve said it many times, but I cannot stress how much I love Trollbeads glasswork. The colors, techniques, and patterns are unsurpassed and easily the best in the industry. The kits provide a great deal as they’re 6 beads for the price of 5, and I prefer to buy my glass beads in these sets.
Trollbeads does a fabulous job of pairing complementary colors together in their kits and the Organic Kit is a mix of corals, dark purples, and brown/green hazel. These are production glass (which means that they are part of the catalog) and called Purple Armadillo, Purple Wave, Coral Flower, Coral Stripe, Organic Bubbles, and Organic Stripe. I was incredibly drawn to these colors and this was one of my first purchases from Trollbeads.
Coral Flower and Coral Stripe have a clear core with the designs floating in the middle. It’s a unique shade and rather difficult to find other beads to pair with but it complements other colors well. The same is true for Organic Bubbles and Organic Stripe; the Organic Stripe has a beige glass overlaid on top of a dark green core and the Organic Bubbles has a lot of variation from light brown to dark green. The Purple Armadillo is a royal purple in one of my favorite patterns and the Purple Wave looks like it has an indigo glass on top of a dark purple core.
The production beads only fit on non-threaded bracelets like Trollbeads and *redbalifrog* and are not compatible with Pandora. These are available from official webstore (US), or retailers like Trollbeads Delaware (US), Perlen (Denmark), Macrow Exclusive Bead Store (UK), and Oromoda (Italy). I added a few random silvers for this colorful bracelet, do you have any of these beads?
