Today Beadsaholic brings a review of Trollbeads People’s Bead Turtle Flower.
It’s live photos day for Trollbeads People’s Bead winner Turtle Power! I had fun playing with this bead, creating bangle composition by the river and lake. This bead is a sea turtle with a flower on its shell which reminds me of the Honu motif (a green sea turtle with a Hawaiian flower). Honu (green sea turtle) symbolizes longevity, wisdom, peace, good luck, endurance, patience and spirit within. It is a popular Hawaiian motif often seen as tattoos and on various island souvenirs. A turtle with flower is thought to exemplify and add a deeper meaning and symbolize healing, long life and water.
Trollbeads Turtle Flower is a cute sea turtle with a flower on or as it’s shell. I personally like this bead as it’s well detailed all the way around and reminds me of the Honu motif as I mentioned above. I’ve been wearing it on a bangle over the last few days and it wears great, though it does flip and spins around some, but thankfully all sides are detailed and beautiful. This bead measures approximately 14.07 mm top of flower to the bottom x 14 mm wide x 19.33 mm deep and weighs 4.6 grams. Turtle Flower retails for $72.
Here you can see this turtle from all angles.

Now for some bangles compositions using just Trollbeads for design inspiration. I took photos in between storms, so the sky was rather angry with no sun, but I think they came out good.
Overall, I personally like this bead and will wear it in some calming and balancing compositions. I love sea turtles and their meaning and have always loved the Honu Motif, so this is a bead I’d wear. It will work in any composition, but if worn on a necklace you may want to use stoppers to stabilize the bead. If you have the headbands or comb it would look really cute on these.
