Happy Universe goes Bollywood :)

Post by Trollperle on Sun Aug 04, 2013 6:36 pm

I am still experimenting with my HU. As it is really heavy, I can not put it on my most worn bracelet. The other glass, one stone and the silvers accompanying it make it too heavy for my wrist. The version I wore for my birthday looks pretty but nevertheless is a compromise - very nice for an outing but not the right vibes for relaxing at home (I never said I was not complicated, lol). The glass from last autumn also was too heavy for they are the chunkiest of the lot (and they would look so stunning...) I got a bit sad but then it hit me: I reassembled my tibet/ocean inspired owlet bracelet, tweaked it a bit by adding the S&B light blue galaxy and finally I have a bracelet that is well enough balanced to feel comfortable and has the right beads, as well Smile

I made a cup of coffee, drank it, put the bracelet in front of the little espresso cup because I was getting ready to groom Gyalmo and I do not wear the bracelet when I do, and then I really had to smile. I love the India/Fortune Teller theme of this cup to pieces and have tried for ages to create a matching bracelet. And today quite accidentally I succeeded without even trying, but see for yourself Smile

This is fabulous Hurray and love your story, so often in life things work out better by accident and not planned. Your combo is perfect, but now you have to carry around your cappuccino cup when you wear it! Wink

Very cute picture. I think it is hard to wear a full bracelet of beads and feel comfortable for any length of time. I am a lover of small Trollbeads and three-bead "feature" bracelets with counter-balance beads at the clasps. I like to design full-bead theme bracelets, but not wear them. Your Happy Universe/happy accident bracelet is sweet.

Thank you I love you  I had not thought about that, but you are right. Luckily I still have the box the cup came in, so that it may travel savely - ah the things we do for our bracelets Laughing

Thank you I love you  I actually can wear full bracelets better than the non-full ones, but often I can not keep my first choice because it got too heavy, especially if stones are involved. Therefore I actually like small silvers as I could not wear a bracelet with 5 big ones, even if not as heavy as HU. My retired snake therefore gets the most mileage at the moment jumping on almost any bracelet because I love it AND it is small Wink

Thank you I love you Yes, I use ambers for this purpose from time to time but have none with a colour matching my most loved bracelet at the moment. But I love that I can put all the heavy ones on my amber bracelet Smile

OH wow, this is just the perfect combination of colors and beads, if you ask me. I just LOVE it to pieces and couldn't agree more that "accidental" is sometimes the best of all Wink

Thats a wonderful combo! I love both HU and Bollywood sunny it is so bright and happy!
I got a question to you as I saw that also have Faerybeads Man in the Moon bead (dont know if you still own both of them)
Can you make a picture of these two together? Or if not may be share your thoughts of how are they comparing to each other?
I am struggling to find a comparison and this idea does not let me sleep at night Shocked
Much thanks!
