Today Beadsaholic brings a review of Redbalifrog latest release Botanica.
Today is the debut of Redbalifrog’s latest collection Botanica, inspired by nature. In this release there are five new items joining the Redbalifrog line, a pendant, three charms and a new necklace.
These days I find myself getting closer to nature in my garden and just being out surrounded by beautiful green life and flowers brings so much peace to my life. I enjoy caring for my plants and watching them grow. Without beautiful greenery there would be no life, we must respect and enjoy the beauty of nature.
Redbalifrog Ivy Scroll is a beautiful open work barrel design of ivy vines wrapping around this sterling silver barrel. This barrel measures approximately 8.92 mm high x 18.54 wide. Ivy Scroll retails for $31 / €31.50.
“Being a beautiful evergreen plant, Ivy represents eternity, fidelity, and strong affectionate attachment, such as wedded love and friendship.” ~ Redbalifrog
Redbalifrog Tropical Leaves is a beautiful barrel covered in leaves. The monstera is one of the most beloved house plants among gardeners and I love seeing these leaves on this sterling silver bead. This bead measures approximately 9 mm high x 15.55 mm wide. Tropical Leaves retails $31 / €31.50.
“The tropics plants often represent a ‘Garden of Eden’, this gorgeous piece will compliment your floral inspired bracelets and necklaces.” ~ Redbalifrog
Redbalifrog Bamboo Tube is a nice addition to the collection as it will go nicely with the Bamboo bangle and a few beads in the nature collection from Redbalifrog. Bamboo resembles a cut piece of bamboo and is made of sterling silver. This bead measures approximately 7.83 mm high x 15.77 mm wide. Bamboo Tube retails for $31 / €31.50.
“Wearing any form of Bamboo can encourage its symbol of strength and flexibility. It represents standing tall and being flexible, these virtues are very important to help us find balance and inner peace in our lives.” ~ Redbalifrog
Redbalifrog Hemp Leaf Pendant is a large cannabis leaf in sterling silver. Hemp is an important plant in textiles as the plant is strong and many things can be made from it. The oil from Hemp is used in many beauty products, the most popular being moisturizers, plus over the last few years the health care industry has blown up with the use of CBD for pain and different medical conditions. This pendant can be worn on a chain or leather, it can also be used on a bracelet, if you don’t mind a larger focal. You will find that this pendant measures approximately 32.11 mm high x 24.57 mm wide. Hemp Leaf Pendant retails for $36 / €37.
“Hemp is a variety of the Cannabis sativa plant species. It can be used to make a wide range of products including paper, fabric, food and medicine. It’s also an environmentally friendly building material. Along with Bamboo, Hemp is one of the fastest growing and most important plants on our planet at the moment with its versatility.” ~ Redbalifrog
Redbalifrog Lotus Barrel Chain Necklace is a beautiful long fantasy style necklace that you can wear beads on for a beautiful classy look. The necklace is around thirty-two inches. It has a beautiful barrel at the bottom to keep your beads in place and on the bottom of the barrel is a lotus. Lotus Barrel Chain Necklace retails for $93 / €99.50.
“This gorgeous light weight chain with its lovely Lotus Flower stopper is perfect for displaying your best and most precious beads, a perfect way to express yourself in a different way.” ~ Redbalifrog
I am loving all the barrel designs and of course had to pull out my beautiful bamboo bracelet from Redbalifrog to wear, too. I decided to use Redbalifrog Jade in most of my composition as I thought it would look beautiful since all these plants are green and adds a little luck to your design.
In this photo you can see the barrel shape of the Lotus Barrel Necklace.
I was excited to see the Bamboo Tube and will need to get a second as I’d love to wear it with Redbalifrog Bamboo Frog. I’m wearing the two together here and as you can see they go so well with the Bamboo Bangle.
Of course, Ivy Scroll and Tropical Leaves go well with these pearls and Art Nouveau!
This of course, is my favorite combination. I love how beautiful all the Redbalifrog Tube designs look together. Stacked here with the bamboo bangle, with the beautiful Lotus Barrel Chaim Necklace for a complete look.
Overall, this is a fabulous new collection. I am happy to see new additions to Redbalifrog nature theme and think these will go with everything!
