Redbalifrog Unidentified Revisited with a Science Fiction Themed Charm Bracelet

This charm jewellery blog article revisits the newly debuted Redbalifrog Unidentified bead with a showcase of a science fiction themed charm bracelet.

Last week saw the Redbalifrog Ancient Mystics collection debut and at the weekend I offered my own review of the Redbalifrog Unidentified bead. While I liked the bracelet combination despite it’s science fiction theme being far outside of my comfort zone, I was terribly unhappy with some of the images I featured. I’d received a suggestion to use the Trollbeads Inner Glow beads allowing the splash of neon green to offer a real alien theme. The end result was fabulous and I spent the rest of the day with the X Files theme tune buzzing around my head. Unfortunately the images of the Inner Glow beads fully charged were poor.

For the benefit of the ladies who love the science fiction genre, here are updated images and a little inspiration for a science fiction themed charm bracelet.

    Thanks 🙂

      Endangered Trolls finally learns how to photograph fluorescent beads! And it only took 11 months! 😉

    The glowy photos are Awesome!! How about a couple of shots of the whole bracelet in natural light? I know, your fans are never satisfied…

    • endangeredtrolls

      I’ll see what I can do 😉

    Your photos are superb, Victoria! These Inner Glow beads really GLOW!! I was showing one to my husband under the LED lit magnifying glass he gave me – and when I took the magnifying glass away the beads were glowing green in the daylight. Stunning. Did favorite Beadfairy Beth help with the solution to photographing them?

    I’m so glad I got another and have three for my UFO bracelet. I did have to make some substitutions, White Steel for an Inner Glow, Tourmalinated Quartz (a good one) for Agate Dentritic, Ohm Stars for the Our World, and am still hung up on substitutions for the black lava & the Sapphire. I have one faceted Black Onyx & a faceted Novobeads Hematite I guess I could use. Not sure, decisions decisions, such fun!

      Thank you! Photography is ludicrously addictive and in a way I have Beth to thank for this as her pictures do inspire me so much. She didn’t actually help with these though I’ll admit capturing them required a full Saturday or learning 😉

      I LOVE the Inner Glow beads – they start to come into their own at this time of year when the light is failing. I’m so hoping for more colour options with this bead this year. Your bracelet sounds lovely and you have a lot of beads there that I don’t. I’d love to see photographs one day 🙂

      /hugs

        These are AWESOME! I was squee-ing the whole time- you did such a great job! I’m happy to inspire you but it’s super mutual 😛 <3

          Beth, is your blog public? The more, the merrier…

          • endangeredtrolls

            You can find the lovely Beth over at http://www.trollbeadsstudio.com/category/blog/#.UjDjcsZmjq5 though she doesn’t have time to be blogging much 🙁

            I’m hoping to feature some more of her photography in the future as she’s exceptionally good – so look out for that 😉

        • endangeredtrolls

          It’s only taken me a year to get the fluorescent photography sorted. I’m SUCH a fast learner! 😉

          /hugs

        Hi Victoria,
        I will definitely send you a photo (not up to your standard of quality of course) when it’s done!
        To finish my sci-fi bracelet (once my RBF order arrives), I still need about three bead substitutions to figure out for rapu nui, sapphire, spirograph, and black volcanic fossil. I have to really sift through the beads and see what I have to suit. It sure is a fun effort!

        • endangeredtrolls

          It’s great fun (though a little frustrating I find) when you have an idea fixed in your head but are struggling to execute it! I recently had a great idea for an article and had absolutely zero beads for it. I’ve ended up begging Beth to take some photographs for me and they’ve turned out better than I could manage anyway 😉

          The Rapa Nui is quite a tough one to substitute I think! I think for the others, anything dark blue or black will be just fine.

          I’m looking forward to see the end result 😀

          /hugs

    Oooooo, that’s lovely! I don’t know what to say except THANK YOU! It just hits the right note and feeds something in me I didn’t know was hungry. 😀 I’m ordering an Unidentified today! And here I thought I didn’t want any of the Ancient Mystics line!

    • endangeredtrolls

      It’s strange that sometimes you see a bead in a combination and it clicks.. and you need it. I’ve had the same thing this evening with a Red Tiger’s Eye. I saw a photograph using it and that was it, I needed it. I’m sorry I’ve cost you extra money but on the other hand, I’m so glad to hear of all these little UFOs zipping out to my readers 😀

      I’d love to hear what you think of it when it arrives and also what combination you end up using!

      Kind Regards
      Victoria

    Great photo, Victoria. How did you manage this?

    • endangeredtrolls

      A lot of practice and camera setting changes 🙁 It’s not perfect because really you should use black lights for this. However I didn’t have any and didn’t really have the time to go out scouting for them. Also ridiculously long exposure time which means a tripod is absolutely essential.

      Honestly though, it really has taken me a year to get these right 😛 Last year was terrible!

        Yes, exactly!! Monsters of the deep! It has me thinking of new ways to someday use TB’s Inner Glow with my sea life beads & charms. 🙂
