Summer is fading fast into Autumn and with Autumn comes the last blooms of summer, while fading into the beautiful changing foliage.
Autumn is my favorite time of the year and I love wearing forrest themes like the beautiful Foxes and Hedgehog beads, but there is nothing more Autumn than Mushrooms, Cedar Cones and wilted flowers. Hence, I think the 4 Unique Semper Augustus, Foxes, Hedgehog, Mushroom Family and Cedar Cone are the perfect beads to create woodsy Autumn compositions and of course, the last days of Summer.
4 Unique Semper Augustus is two beautiful wilted Semper Augustus tulips, their lives fading away curled and interlocked together as if embracing their love. This is two separate tulip beads connected together by their petals, articulating back and forth. The texture and detail in this stunning bead is amazing. This bead measures approximately 15 mm high x 18-20 mm wide and weighs 7 grams. This bead fits perfectly on a bangle, bracelet or necklace with a universal core. Semper Augustus retails for $99.
4 Unique Foxes is a beautiful Mama Fox wrapped around her baby Fox in a playful, loving and protecting way. The design of the foxes are beautifully detailed and realistic. I love how they are balled together as if they are rolling around playing. This shows the perfect relationship between a mother and her child. Foxes retail for $69.
4 Unique Hedgehog is such a cute and unique little fella with his forest of trees in place of spikes. 4 Unique has replaced this Hedgehogs spikes with trees to show the inseparable connection between animals and their environment in which they live in. He has the cutest face, four cute paws and a body full of pine trees. This bead measures approximately 13 mm high x 10 mm wide x 15 mm deep and weighs 7.2 grams. Hedgehog retails for $69.
4 Unique Cedar Cone is a beautiful detailed stopper with two layers of scales all the way around and inside you will find a rubber ring to help hold your stopper in place on a bracelet or bangle. This bead measures approximately 14 mm high x 7.4 mm wide and weighs 5.5 grams. Cedar Cone retails for $59.
4 Unique Mushroom Family is so adorable with different size mushroom caps and inside is a rubber ring to hold this bead in place on a bangle or bracelet. This bead measures approximately 15 mm high x 11 mm wide and weighs 8.1 grams. Mushroom Family retails for $59.
As you can see here the Semper Augustus fits perfectly on a bangle with these gorgeous spring and summer pink Elfbeads and Niwabeads Wings Reborn on a Phya Bangle.
Over time flowers among the forest fade and in this composition I wanted to use these beautiful faded pinks from Dream Glass Art with the stunning silvers from 4 Unique. I had a hard time deciding between the Indian Elephant or The Moon-Snatcher Raven, but in the end decided on the Elephant, both would work perfectly. I really love the way this bracelet turned out and thought I’d share several different angles.
With the change of season coming soon I thought a few Autumn compositions were in order.
In this first composition I’ve used all the beautiful silvers from this review and mixed them with Trollbeads stones Feldspar Quartz Rock, Calcite Rock, and Cat’s Eye Quartz on a Trollbeads Twisted Bangle.
Trollbeads Calcite Rock stones give a nice woodsy vibe to this composition with the 4 Unique Hedgehog, Mushroom Family and Cedar Cone on a Trollbeads Bangle.
I just can’t get over how cute these Foxes are! It warms my heart to look at this bead on my wrist, mixed here with 4 Unique Mushroom Family, Cedar Cones, Trollbeads Unique and the LE Trollbeads Heaven on a Trollbeads Twisted Bangle.
Overall, if you don’t have any 4 Unique in your bead collection, you are missing out and must rectify this situation! You will not find a more unique beautifully detailed brand. Each bead and lock is a masterpiece and mix well with all brands.
