Hello Everyone,

You all know that I definitely have a fabric obsession, but what you may not have known was that I just adore beads. Really any kind of bead, for embellishment on a quilt or just to wear. I own many kinds and all colors.

This post, specifically, I wanted to share with you my Troll bead obsession. My hubs purchased a Troll bracelet for me one year for my birthday. For those of you who do not know what they are, they are a bracelet that you add beads to at any time. You can go to their website and see.

I know I am getting wordy, sorry. But I found this great artisan on Etsy. Her name is Traci and she hand makes beads to fit your Troll bracelet. Her Etsy site is called Beads by Traci. The beads are reasonably priced and absolutely gorgeous!! I should know, I have purchased 5 from her, 3 of which she custom made. So here is what my bracelet looks like with her beads adorning it.

In the first photo, you can see Traci's beads, the bright lime dichroic bead on the left, the lime and raspberry bumpy bead in the middle, and the multi colored right in the front (not too clear here).

A nicer picture of the raspberry and lime bumpy bead.

The three beads in the foreground here are all made by Traci. A raspberry one with silver caps with swirls, a raspberry one with ghostly swirls, and the lime one with hammered silver caps.

The one with silvery glitter in it in the foreground is one that she also made. It is multi colored and really compliments the rest of my bracelet well.

Can you tell I like the lime and raspberry color theme? I just love what she has done and will continue to purchase from her in the future. Go check her out and tell her Jackie sent you!!

Until Next Time...
