Today Beadsaholic brings a review of Argo Studios Spring Pagoda.
Spring has finally sprung, and I’ve been outside enjoying my roses in my yard while social distancing and of course enjoying the Argo Studios Spring Pagoda! I thought this would be the perfect time to review this beautiful bead from Argo Studios, there is no other brand that creates three dimensional beads like this and I would have to say this and the Winter Tale are two of my most prized pieces of art that I have in my collection. The craftsmanship speaks for itself.
Argo Studios Spring Pagoda is a beautiful cherry blossom tree that wraps around a Pagoda structure. I absolutely love the detailing of the tree trunk and flowers. The Pagoda beautifully hides beneath the blooms. This is a large and heavy bead measuring approximately 16.36 mm high x 25.46 mm wide and weighs a nice 18.7 grams. I must add though, that the hole size in Argo beads are on the small size, so these will only fit smaller branded carriers like Trollbeads, 4unique and TPOA bracelets; however, it will not fit any bangles, but will fit the slide leather and slider bracelets from Pandora. Spring Pagoda retails for $284 / €250, price without vat.
Quick video look.

This is actually one of my favorite ways to wear the Spring Pagoda and other large barrels. Seen here on a Pandora Black Leather slider.
Overall, this bead is a beauty and well worth the price with the amount of detail, the weight and work that went into making this bead. Perfect for Spring and Summer. This bead is also perfect on a Trollbeads Fantasy Necklace; however, I’ve misplaced mine and wasn’t able to get photos for this review. Once it’s located, I’ll share some on social media for sure.
