Henhousebeads Gables Inspiration

This charm bracelet blog brings a little inspiration for the Henhousbeads Gables glass.

As much as I love the winter season, I appreciate that many people do not. Of course the picture perfect image of winter is of uninterrupted blankets of snow. The reality is often mush and mud and washed out shades of nature before new life begins to shoot back up. We’re into or close to that awkward pre-spring stage where the new season struggles to really take hold. It’s a little too early for bright green bracelets and perhaps a little too late for those wintery blues.

Henhousebeads Gables

Since Henhousebeads launched at Great Lakes Boutique last year, Gables has been one of my favourite beads. It’s a somewhat unusual shade. It manages to feel applicable to multiple seasons all at once. It’s reminiscent of moss or pond weed shaded from the sun in summer. It’s the colour of late winter grass soaked and mingled with mud. It’s the colour of witchy brews and concoctions for Halloween. It has it’s own degree of versatility and it’s not an overpowering shade either. It’s worth noting that it does vary however. We’ve seen examples sit more towards the browns, especially in the earlier batches. More recently they have tended to show more green. Fortunately we only sell from live images anyway and you can shop the collection beads below:-

On this bracelet it’s the colour that underpins some of the very focal Scrambled Eggs we’ve seen recently. These designs all remind me of falling leaves. The burnt oranges of fall, the brighter greens and blacks of spring time storms and the new Valentine’s Day design of drifting cherry blossoms. The silver designs all reflect elements of nature and I think it’s my first time using the Trollbeads Ratatoskr.

Henhousebeads Gables Summary

For those of you new to Henhousebeads, they use a universal full core (no end caps.) Scrambled Eggs are the equivalent of Trollbeads Uniques and for the most part the line is trying to avoid the limited edition concept. It’s small batch production by a single artist (Cindy Knoch) but she’s done an incredible job to date at keeping pace with demand.

Looking ahead a little to Bead Bash on the Lake, the aim is to have hundreds of Scrambled Eggs available as well as a good selection of the collection beads. There’ll be an update on Bead Bash preparations next week.

There are some Scrambled Eggs currently available here, including the new designs for Valentine’s Day 2019. The black bead with the assorted pink and red details is amazing, be sure not to miss those.

As always I love to hear from my readers. Are you a fan of the Henhousebeads Gables? If not have you found a favourite in the collection glass yet? Hit the comments and let me know!
