My first resolution of 2017 was to finally buy a bead from True Beadz. If you recall, I was having a bit of buyer’s paralysis trying to choose which one I wanted, so I hadn’t bought any at all! I briefly considered avoiding my colour/texture dilemma by buying one of their silvers, but that would have just delayed the issue; although I like their silvers, I really wanted to see how their glass beads would fit into my collection.
I had just about decided on one of the Stormy Heavens beads when the St. Patrick’s Day release was announced. One look at True Potion and I was set. In fact, I liked it so much that I was going to buy it even though I thought that it was faceted! I’m a bit of a sucker for green beads and this one is such a beautiful, rich green. Add in the subtle variation in the shades and there wasn’t a doubt in my mind.
It arrived just in the nick of time on St. Patrick’s Day itself (last Friday) and immediately went on my wrist. And has been there most of the last week.
Up until today I’ve been wearing it in a stack, but on its own bracelet. So, I decided to try it with a few other beads today and I was really pleased with how well it fits in with my other beads.
Which brings me to the question that I had for myself: will I buy more True Beadz? Yes! I was a bit worried about the bigger end caps but I really don’t notice them at all. I was also a bit worried that they might be larger than my other beads, but it seems no bigger than my Ohm beads and they always mix well with the other brands.
Now I’m just back to my colour/texture dilemma!
