Today retailers are permitted to share their own live images and though I’ll be taking studio images this week, there’s already quite a lot of discussion on social media regarding these beads and specifically that they differ from the stock images.
Our beads have just arrived at Great Lakes Boutique so I wanted to take the opportunity to get them outside in the sunshine and share my own thoughts on the Trollbeads Flow of Love glass.
Trollbeads Mother’s Day 2019
After looking at the beads and looking back at the stock image, I actually don’t think they do differ at all. I suspect it’s all about the angle. To clarify the glass is actually translucent and I’m not sure this entirely came across in the stock image. How noticeable this is depends a little on striping within each individual bead. Some have very little of that ribbon detail and on those beads it’s much more noticeable that it’s translucent pink glass.
Translucency aside, the sizing seems quite consistent in their height, though a few sparse individuals are quite chunky in comparison with the majority.
That translucency actually gives them a somewhat candied effect and the beads are lovely.
I couldn’t resist trying out a couple of bangle combinations immediately. I’ve combined it here with the Trollbeads Festival glass (you can shop those live here.)
Trollbeads Mother’s Day 2019 Summary
The Trollbeads Puzzle Spacers are a little larger than I had anticipated and that’s always a good thing. As expected that missing “piece” does indeed show the rubber core rather than an oxidised area. They are sitting tight on my bangles.
The glass is very pretty if more translucent than I think most had initially predicted. They do vary enormously however so this is definitely going to be one to shop from live images.
As always I love to hear from my readers. What are your thoughts on these early live images of the Trollbeads Mother’s Day 2019 collection? Hit the comments and let me know!
