The new concept from Trollbeads is here. The X by Trollbeads range is now in stock and i have had the chance to have a little play. It is a fabulous idea and the range although small at the moment i am sure will grow as the Trollbeads range has. The actual single links come in silver, bronze and rubber and the double links are available in silver and bronze. Each piece links together by forming an X and pushing lightly to click in to place.
This particular bracelet uses the bronze catch and a silver plain double link. The rubber links allow the bracelet to have length and the feature beads are the Harelekin (double link) and the Forget - me - Knot (single link). I find the mixing of colour is great and allows you to mix it with any jewellery. The black rubber is quite firm and not as flimsy as i expected when i first heard of the concept.
The above picture is of the simple starter bracelet which we will be loading as a complete bracelet on the site. It consists of single rubber links to size, a single plain silver link and also a silver catch. This gives you the opportunity to add any amount of double or single feature links at all different price ranges.
This is the same starter bracelet but instead of silver it uses the bronze catch and the bronze single link. Again the rubber links make the bracelet up to size and allow the wearer to change them for more decorative links along the journey.
This particular bracelet is an example of what can be achieved.
It is created using just silver and bronze links. The catch is bronze and there are five double bronze links, in between these there are five single silver feature links and one double silver feature link. Each feature link has a name as with all Trollbead products. On the above we have My Lucky Star, My Heart, Leaves, Hugging Bear, Heart Within and Single Snow. I love the colour created by using just the bronze and silver.
Unfortunately as yet there are no bronze feature links, and the gold ones are very limited and have a larger price tag. They have a double gold link, a single gold link and a Golden Heart Within.
The range also has Chinese Zodiac and birth sign links which i will discuss in a separate section. For now i will leave you to look through the site and pick out your favourites!!
