Trollbeads Shimmer Royal Inspiration for the Lunar Eclipse

This Trollbeads blog brings a little lunar eclipse bracelet inspiration starring the Trollbeads Shimmer Royal.

January the 31st sees parts of the world graced with a super blood blue moon lunar eclipse (feel free to correct me on this by the way!) Night sky bracelets are such a popular theme amongst charm bracelet collectors so I decided to try a little bracelet inspiration.

Trollbeads Shimmer Royal Inspiration for the Lunar Eclipse

This bracelet uses multiple limited edition Trollbeads Shimmer Royal glass. This was the Black Friday bead for 2017 and it’s so pretty. It’s also a great complement to the Wishful Sky glass for those who can’t justify multiple sets to get additional beads.

Blood moons are so called because of their orange hue of course so I wanted to try and incorporate that element to this combination too. I opted for the Trollbeads Feldspar Moonstone which is one of my most used gemstones. Collectors often make the mistake of thinking this stone doesn’t vary but actually some of them are so shimmery. I also added just a couple of white beads; the True Beadz Snow Alchemy and the Trollbeads White Diamond for a touch of “moonglow” effect. It also stopped the navy and coral colours becoming too overpowering as they are a strong contrast to each other.

The silver beads on this combination actually aren’t celestial in theme. Instead I opted to use some of the new Spring 2018 designs.

I have absolutely no idea how long this bead will be in circulation for. Trollbeads never disclose whether their limited editions are limited in terms of quantity or duration of availability. Between this and Wishful Sky though, they’re some of my favourite Trollbeads glass for a long time. Shimmer Royal does show variation. Less in colour and more in regards to the level of shimmer you can see and the individual size so do keep that in mind.

    Love Shimmer Royal! I have 3 (so far) on my wintery night bracelet. Feldspar moonstone when it first came out I was like eh not crazy about the color. Then…I found a sparkly one, & then I had to get another….
    You know how that goes!

      I was the same! I remember the previews and I was like “meh”. Now I have three or four I think it is and some of them that pass through my hands for GLB are SO amazing. We’ve had sparkles and then pearly bits and oh my gosh it can be SUCH a pretty stone!!

      p.s I missed a “blue” out of the super moon blood lunar new eclipse thing. Figured that would make you giggle 😉

    My Feldspar Moonstone that I got from you last year is one of my favorite beads that I have. It has the splotch of sparkle that I love….I’ll actually move the bead around until it shows!

    Beautiful bracelet !! I got my shimmer royal for Christmas and have worn it everyday since. I wasn’t sure about the feldspar moonstones either until I saw them in person. I love mine. I’m not really a pink sort of girl but I do like the blush tones of it. I’m so glad that you added Wilderness and Noble Deer. The spring collection is wonderful but those 2 are the stand out beads for me. They will get lots of use. Great for once upon a time, woodsy bracelets and a HP inspired bracelet .
