Today Beadsaholic brings a review of Trollbeads Day collection Brush of Blue.
Trollbeads Day is June 15, 2019 and as part of the celebration Trollbeads will be releasing this year’s limited-edition Brush of Blue kit. This special kit includes six porcelain white beads with hand-painted cobalt blue patterns that remind me of the highly collectible china plates my grandmother had while I was a child. This release is available as a kit or individually.
” In English , porcelain is also called china and was originated in China, where the genuine, hard white porcelain was invented.”
Brush of Blue Kit retails for $366.
Trollbeads Lotus Brush is a hand-painted lotus plant on porcelain. This bead size ranges around 15 mm high x 7 mm wide and retails for $61.
Trollbeads Fish Brush reminds me of a Japanese painting, the fish swims along the bead with plants rising from the sides. This bead averages 15 mm high x 7 mm wide and retails for $61.
Trollbeads Vine Brush is a beautiful bead with a blue vine that goes all the way around the bead. I have noticed a lot of variation in this design, so might be best to pick your beads. This bead average size is about 15 mm high x 7 mm wide and retails for $61.
Trollbeads Plum Tree Brush is a rather decorative bead with plum flowers and branches all the way around. This bead averages 15 mm high x 7 mm wide and retails for $61.
Trollbeads Bamboo Brush is a unique design with an Asian feel that wraps around the bead. This bead averages 15 mm high x 7 mm wide and retails for $61.
Trollbeads Chrysanthemum Brush is a rather beautiful floral design. This bead averages 15 mm high x 7 mm wide and retails for $61.
Here is a video showing the details all the way around.
I have created several compositions with this kit, and I must say that Trollbeads Lapis Lazuli matches the blue cobalt perfectly. All beads used are Trollbeads.
I thought I’d add a little bit of golden yellow to the mix and I think the Brush of blue kit looks rather nice in this composition.
Of course, I had to create a few bangle compositions. I really love the Asian feel to this set. I wasn’t sure I’d like them when I first saw photos, but seeing them in person I like them much more. If you are lucky enough to have some of the old white base with cobalt blue uniques then you will want this set to go along with them.
They also work rather well on the Trollbeads French Twist Comb. Perfect for summer.
Overall, this kit is rather different, no other beads on the market like it for sure. So, if you collect limited-edition sets, or you love the patterns, you may want to consider adding this set to your collection.
This set will be available Saturday, June 15, 2019 at the following retailers.
