Redbalifrog Heart of Roses Inspiration

This Redbalifrog blog brings a little pre-Valentine’s inspiration with the Redbalifrog Heart of Roses bead.

With no new Redbalifrog release for Valentine’s Day 2018, I thought it would be an apt time to revisit their Heart of Roses bead. The original silver version debtuted back in 2016 with a brass version following suit in 2016.

Redbalifrog is synonymous with attention to detail and Amanda’s talent has always lent itself well to floral designs. As such this bead is beautifully executed and was always popular with collectors.

The bead is large enough to be a focal design and that’s how I’m using it here. There’s no new glass for Valentine’s Day 2018 with Trollbeads opting for their Rose Spacer instead. Meanwhile Ohm are releasing Melting Hearts. Instead I’ve used the warm rose hues of the Ohm Beads Blush Waterish. Remember this is exclusive to Great Lakes Boutique and is now retired so if you still don’t have any be sure to indulge soon. Two of the True Beadz True Taste Princess Kiss sit at either end near the clasp and they’re also soon to be retired.

Redbalifrog Heart of Roses Summary

Everyone knows I’m not much for the hearts but I’ve always liked this design. I like the chunkier size and the fact that the heavy oxidisation due to the details stops it feeling quite so girly. It’s for this reason that I’ve always preferred the silver to the brass too.

It’s larger than most of the heart shaped beads out there right now and it’s more traditional in it’s design where the trend within the Trollbeads collection right now seems to be for more contemporary hearts.

As always I love to hear from my readers. What are your thoughts on the Redbalifrog Heart of Roses. This isn’t a new bead so do you already have it? Hit the comments and let me know!

    Is the brass one available? How does the brass wear? Does it tarnish? So many questions …😳

    Lovely bracelet or really a bangle I guess. I like the RBF heart beads but have never picked it up, who knows this wait inspire me to do so – though I really don’t generally go in for to many hearts. The choice of the dirty twisted bangle is brilliant – making it a little edgy and not overly girly or old fashioned romantic. I also really like the True Beadz Kiss in Taste and a pair has been on my wish and I love the blush stoppers.
    But I’m struggling with something – maybe the place the class and knowing the will be sliding around back there. Visually I like it!!
