Trollbeads Slumber Review

This Trollbeads blog brings a dedicated review of the Trollbeads Slumber, part of the autumn 2017 collection.

When the previews of the Trollbeads Autumn 2017 collection first appeared, Slumber was a bead I like and I found striking but had absolutely no idea how I would ever style it. That happens frequently. I can like a design but think it’s not really for me. It was only when photographing these beads under the macro lens that I grew more of an appreciation for how the colours could work. Ultimately my photography resulted in two inspirational bracelets for Slumber which is quite unusual.

The bead retails at $34, €31 or £25 and remember Trollbeads use a smaller core than Pandora or Ohm Beads.

Trollbeads Slumber

It took me quite some time to determine what this bead reminded me of. Nougat. It reminds me of traditional Christmas Nougat, the type with the fruit inside. I have to confess I hate the stuff but I did spend a couple of years working in a Belgian chocolate shop in my late teens and used to love creating the festive window displays. They always incorporated traditional candies and nougat and Turkish Delight (hate that too) were always included.

These beads mostly differ in size as opposed to much else though the cream base does have it’s own shades and pattern. These are difficult to see with the naked eye however as the polka dots draw all of the attention.

For the featured bracelet, I’ve teamed slumber with one of my most commonly used stones, the Trollbeads Feldspar Moonstone. I find this bead so versatile! Regular readers will know that I rarely wear full bracelets. I do occasionally wear mini bracelets however and that’s how I styled this creation. The decorative pieces are all spacers as opposed to beads and they’ve been used to segregate the colour into small groups. The leaves have started to turn here and in fact it’s been positively chilly for the past week or so. This bracelet draws influence from the very earliest hints of autumn when the greens are still mostly vibrant but we’re just starting to see the leaves turn.

Trollbeads Slumber Summary

All seasoned collectors will say that sometimes you don’t truly appreciate a bead until you see it in person. Of course not everyone has the luxury of doing so these days but the rule does still apply. This is precisely how I felt about Slumber. I loved how striking it was. One could almost describe it as cheerful but I felt it was more of a summer season bead. Arguably it is going to look amazing in the summer but I love this combination!

As always I love to hear from my readers. What are your thoughts on the Trollbeads Slumber? Did you indulge in this bead or is it on your wishlist? Hit the comments and let me know!

    First of all I despise nougat! I hate to say it but this bead was actually the one I liked the least in the collection. It has definitely grown on me now that I see this bracelet. The Feldspar Moonstone looks great with it….another combination I would never have considered. I love the idea of sectioning off the bracelet with the spacers. I’ve been doing that alot lately, in my case it’s to make it look like I have more beads than I do.

    I ordered this and sparkling moss to go on a woodland theme bracelet and as it’s spring here they are both perfect. This bead stood out to me straight away, and after reading your review I’m sure I shall love it.
