Today Beadsaholic brings a review of two new exclusive beads from Redbalifrog Europe.
Halloween has not even arrived yet, but many of us are already dreaming of the Christmas season coming up and Redbalifrog Europe has two perfect beads to add to our Christmas bracelets! Redbalifrog Europe is introducing two new beads today Be the Light and Donkey.
Redbalifrog Be the Light is a beautiful two-piece bead. The candle holder is made of brass and has beautiful star and crescent moons all the way around, the second part is a sterling silver candle with a brass flame. These beads can be worn separately or together. I am rather excited to have a candle to add to my Christmas bracelet this coming up season. This bead measures together 16.36 mm high x 12.50 mm, is part of the regular line and is an exclusive to Europe retailers. Be the light retails for €31.50, price include vat.
Redbalifrog Donkey is a stunningly detailed donkey! This is a European exclusive and is limited to only seventy-five pieces. The really cool news is Redbalifrog Europe will donate €2 of every bead sold to the Donkey Refuge! Donkey measures approximately 17.79 mm high x 22.55 wide and retails for €37, price include vat.
Here is a live close look of Be the Light and Donkey.
Here I have composed all Redbalifrog beads together. You will find Redbalifrog Red Coral, Be the Light, Cross and Donkey on a Redbalifrog bangle with Brass Star Stoppers.
In this composition I went with some beautiful Christmas silvers from Redbalifrog and Glass beads from Trollbeads. From the Redbalifrog Star Lock clockwise you will find Redbalifrog Dove of Peace, Madonna and Child (retired), Donkey, Be the Light, Angel Brite and Christmas Star (retired).
I can say this will be a favorite composition for this Christmas season! Redbalifrog Pearls, back side of Madonna and Child (retired), Be the Light.
Overall, this is a fabulous release that I think many will like. Halloween and Christmas beads are among my favorite beads, but I think both of these can be worn in more many compositions outside Christmas, too.

Well, “Donkey” just captured my heart. There’s something so incredibly sweet about him. Went right on over to RBF Europe to “sign his adoption papers!”

Wow, so RBF is donating 2€ (to The Donkey Refuge) for every Donkey bead sold. The Donkey bead is a limited edition of only 75 pieces. Multiply 75 Donkeys by 2€ and you get a total of 150€ (or about $195 US dollars). Seams a bit cheap to me, as if they didn’t count (pun intended) on anyone actually doing the math! It’ll be interesting to see the exact number on the check given to “The Donkey Refuge.”
I fell in love at first sight with Be The Light and bought one immediately at Edone. It’s been a long time since a bead has excited me as much as this one. Thanks for the heads up.

You are going to love it Mary, I took the candle out and used just the candle in a Halloween bracelet this week. I love the versatility of this bead and the fact you can get two different looks with it.
