This charm bracelet blog brings a little inspiration with a stormy skies themed Henhousebeads bracelet.
I’ve always loved thunderstorms and the fall and spring seasons tend to be the stormiest. It’s a theme I’ve dabbled with countless times over the years but it’s always difficult to really capture the beauty of nature. My latest attempt features three different shades of Henhousebeads, Brittany, Toulouse and Maize. You can shop all of the glass via live images at the link below:-
The silver beads for this combination include some of the Trollbeads birth month flowers which I haven’t used in ages but are such classics. Also included is the new Seed Pods (find that here) and the Redbalifrog Green Man (here) and Surya the Sun (here.) April tends to be known for it’s April showers but with that comes a rush of growth outside.
The Henhousebeads Brittany glass has been one of my favourites since the launch and indeed a customer favourite too. Toulouse has a habit of looking a different colour in different lights. It sits on a borderline between blue and slightly lilac (and I’ve seen some very lilac versions circulate social media.) It’s also worth noting there were some translucent versions of this bead made. The ones featured here are opaque. The final shade used on this bracelet is Maize. This colour appealed to me so much from the start but also intimidated me a little as yellow has never been a good colour for me. Nevertheless it’s a really stunning but unusual shade and I’ve found mixing it with other colours works really well if you struggle with yellows a little.
Aside from this bracelet I’ve also been experimenting with Maize mixed with whites and greens but I haven’t quite made that work just yet. I’d mostly dismissed Toulouse in the past as being just too pale for me but I love it in this combination!
If you like this bracelet you might enjoy a slightly different use of Toulouse over at Great Lakes Boutique.
