Today Beadsaholic brings a review of the Aurora Swampy, the Creature from the Misty Lagoon!
For the Halloween season Aurora introduced Swampy, the Creature from the Misty Lagoon to their Once Upon a Time collection. This is such an adorable dangle that not only is perfect for Halloween, but will also work nicely on a Bayou theme, lake/ocean or sci-fi theme. I didn’t do a movie theme bracelet today, but I think at some point I’ll do a movie theme that will include this cutie to represent the swamp monster in the movie Shape of Water. Also, my husband is from Louisiana and we have roots there, so this bead I’ll wear on my bracelet for the Honey Island Swamp along with my gumbo pot and a few other beads that represent his home state. So, as you can see this bead can be worn in so many different ways and isn’t just a Halloween bead.
Aurora Swampy, the Creature from the Misty Lagoon is an adorable swamp monster hanging from a hook and has a fish thrown over his shoulder. He has cute fins on each side of his head and down his back, his feet and hands are webbed, and he has black enamel eyes. This bead measures from the top of the bail to the bottom of his webbed feet approximately 27.69 mm long x 7.92 mm wide. Swampy, the Creature from the Misty Lagoon retails for €42.94, price includes vat.
In this composition I was going for a swamp theme with swampy green glass beads from Ogerbeads, Aurora Swampy, the Creature from the Misty Lagoon, Aurora Hatching Baby Dragon, OHM Who Dead, OHM Lotus and OHM Magic Frog on an Aurora Celtic Bangle.
In this composition I went for more of an ocean or lake theme. There has even been a shark in Lake Pontchartrain, so why not a mermaid and sea turtle. Seen here on the Aurora Celtic Bangle are Ogerbeads Glass, Aurora Swampy, the Creature from the Misty Lagoon, Aurora Sailor’s Dream Mermaid and Happy Turtle.
In this composition I wanted to create a fairytale theme with all Aurora Charms: Innocence- White Lace, Moon Garden (exclusive at Pianeta Beads), Irish Celtic Shamrock, Swampy, the Creature from the Misty Lagoon, Serenity- Green Flower, Frangipani Red & Yellow Flower and Irish Celtic Eternity -Amber on an Aurora Celtic Bangle.
And now for a spooky Halloween Swamp theme with Ogerbeads Glass Beads, Swampy, the Creature from the Misty Lagoon, Scrawnykhamun the Mummy and Spooky the Ghost on an Aurora Celtic Bangle. These guys are sure to make you smile during the spookiest time of the year.
Overall, Swampy, the Creature from the Misty Lagoon is such a fun bead and as you can see will work in any composition!
