Trollbeads Autumnal Bracelet Inspiration

Following weeks of new product previews, for the last few days I’ve been showcasing some of the charm bracelets I’ve been wearing in recent weeks. This Trollbeads blog article brings Trollbeads autumnal bracelet inspiration

Autumn is always busy with new releases. In addition to the standard Trollbeads collections, there have also been a number of limited edition and exclusive beads. In light of this my blog was a little overwhelmed with preview articles which left some readers yearning for more bracelet inspiration. For the past few days, I’ve been highlighting the bracelet combinations that I’ve been wearing recently. Much of my inspiration for Trollbeads bracelets comes from nature which is so utterly brilliant at providing us with raw beauty.

Today’s bracelet features focuses on a Trollbeads autumnal bracelet.

Trollbeads Autumnal Bracelet Inspiration

While I’ve lived in Denmark for years now, I grew up in the UK. There are a few days between the end of October and the first week of November that always excited me. From Halloween on the 31st of October through until bonfire night on the 5th of November. Both are celebrated and the period is characterised by carved pumpkins, fireworks, the spectacular colours of autumn and the tang of bonfires in the air.

The silver beads on this bracelet are selected for their ability to represent autumn, including the two Trollbeads Shooting Stars which are reminiscent of fireworks. The colour scheme is one I’ve been experimenting with for some time. While it’s still not perfect, it’s utterly striking.

Ideally I would like to replace all the grey beads in this combination with the Trollbeads Agate Dendritic. They have a smokey quality which is perfect for this bracelet and I also love their organic feel. The grey beads I have vary in colour enormously and this is the largest weakness for me. The vibrant cinder shades are provided by the limited edition >Trollbeads Royal Orange, in addition to the Oranje Boven from the Dutch world tour.

Much like the Asian inspired Trollbeads bracelet I featured at the end of last week, this is a work in progress and perhaps when I manage to acquire more of the agate beads, I’ll revisit it. Unfortunately the Royal Orange sold out at retailers incredibly quickly. The more recent Trollbeads Masala Facet would work as a more available substitute for those of you keen to try recreating this bracelet. Alternatively three of my recommended retailers still have a few of the world tour bead available:-

      I must admit, of my recent bracelets this has been my favourite. I just love the colours! I do think it would look better with a full set of agates rather than the mismatch of grey beads I’ve used but still!

      It also gives some more use to those Royal Orange beads πŸ˜‰

      I’m so pleased that you like it πŸ™‚

      Kind Regards

    I adore the orange beads! I had to get two of these myself and had them on my Hallowe’en bangle. The royal orange is a beauty and I wear this one quite regularly with some of the combinations that have evolved over the course of my time collecting beads/charms. I’m becoming a hug fan of the faceted charms these days.
    It’s funny because I don’t wear or own any orange clothing at all.
    I am sooo tempted to get the shooting star charm and have been lamenting about that since you started showcasing some of your beautiful bracelets. You are both an good and bad influence πŸ˜‰

      Tracey the extent of orange in my wardrobe comes down to three pieces..

      1/ A bodycon / bandage knit dress – black with an orange stripe just below the hips.
      2/ A zebra print shift dress with an orange stripe on the hem
      3/ An orange handbag that complements the above two items.

      I can’t really wear orange. I have red hair (not natural sadly) and pale skin, it just looks awful on me! However when it’s just a splash on a bracelet, it’s much more forgiving for those of us that really can’t wear the shade. I’m so happy I got my Royal Orange beads before they started to vanish. I don’t really remember a limited edition disappearing that quickly for a long time. I looked through all of my recommended retailers when I wrote this article, to see if any had some remaining so I could link for my readers – no one did.

      The Shooting Stars is a real statement piece. You’ll cry a little over the price but I bet you’ll never regret buying it. I also suspect you’ll wear it a lot. It’s not limited to Christmas like many of the beads. It’s going to look dazzling all year round. I’ve been wearing them on the gold bangle and also on a fantasy necklace with the Blizzard beads either side. Blizzard illuminates it just a little and wow! πŸ˜€

    You have a lovely collection of orange beads. …even if orange isn’t your color. It’s still punchy and makes a great accent.

    One of the things I’ve discovered about myself is I’m not especially fond of purple but I find it really useful for an accent color to add life to what I do love the most. Most of the combinations I make have some purple somewhere and over the years I’ve probably accumulated more purple beads than any other single color.

    Love that Russian Egg bead. I never even considered it before but it looks great on your bracelet and more sculptural than Eastery.

    • endangeredtrolls

      Oh oh! Purple and grey!!! I quite fancy that idea πŸ˜‰ I also have a very large number of purple beads, including a couple I made myself.

      It does sound like my orange is your purple. I can’t really wear the colour but that it’s so beautifully vibrant and I’d not swap my Royal Orange beads at all!

      You know rainey, I’ve rarely used the Russian Egg on Easter bracelets – I always find myself using it on fall bracelets. It has the Easter shape of course but the detailing just screams of autumn to me.

        Well, it does have lovely rich floral design. I can see that oak leaf as Fall too. In any case, she sure did a masterful job of designing that.

    Love, Love, Love your shooting star beads.

      Thank you πŸ™‚ It’s a dazzling, eye catching piece for sure πŸ™‚

    Well this bracelet certainly was interesting to study.
    I have orange and grey on the brain at the moment….and not in a TB way.
    Paint!
    My 13yr old wants his bedroom painted grey with a feature wall in bright orange. So tomorrow I’m off paint, curtains, bedding and accessories shopping.
    I get a feeling that there may be a few shopkeepers who will be admiring your bracelet as I match some of the colours.

    My guest bedroom is being decorated in 2 weeks, any chance of an oriental themed bracelet in claret reds and beiges, Victoria?! Ha ha.

    (Stunning bracelet btw)
