Review: Redbalifrog Strawberry

Today Beadsaholic brings a review of Redbalifrog Strawberry.

Recently we saw the release of Redbalifrog’s Sweet Harvest (preview here) and today I am sharing a review of Redbalifrog’s scrumptious “Strawberry”! Though its Autumn here in the United States, we can still buy strawberries at our supermarkets year-round and it’s a staple food in most households. It’s also a beautiful plant that reminds me of my childhood in my grandmother’s garden, I always loved to pick the strawberries, blueberries and blackberries.

Strawberries were a symbol for Venus, the Goddess of love because of its heart shape and red color.

Redbalifrog Strawberry depicts that of a real strawberry, the detailing is amazing down to the little seeds throughout the bead. The Strawberry is made of sterling silver with a universal core (fits most European brands), measures approximately 18.15 mm high x 11.31 mm wide and weighs around 7 grams. It does have the pointy stem, but when wearing it I haven’t had any issues as it sits well on a bracelet or bangle. This bead retails for $44 / €37

Here you can see the leaves design on the top of the bead.

I have paired Redbalifrog Strawberry with Redbalifrog Pineapple, Pomegranate, Fruit Bowl Lock, Ogerbeads and Ohm Beads.

I’m including photos of this compositions at different angles to show all the beads.

Redbalifrog’s Pineapple has always been a favorite of mine and here in the south it holds a lot of symbolism.

Redbalifrog Pineapple retails for $33 / €28.50

I usually include the Redbalifrog Pomegranate in my Christmas bracelets, it’s such a beautiful fruit bead.

Redbalifrog Pomegranate retails for $37 / €31.50

The Fruit Bowl Lock is stunning with Apples, Pears, Grapes and Bananas! I love the Ivy type detailing that goes up the side of the clasp.

Redbalifrog Fruit Bowl Lock retails for $75 / €70.50

Over all, this is a great bead. If you have been looking for a strawberry, then this is the best one I’ve seen. It will work in many different compositions.
