It comes in a box, together with one of the dangles from the Woodstock collection in a blind box, so you don’t know witch one you get. The box is scented, I believe it is Musk, a very sixties smell!
Also in the box is a booklet with the serialnumber of the bead and the story of the Woodstock festival back in 1969.
Right after I first saw the bead I started to think about a design for the bead, a bangle or bracelet.
It is so much fun playing with those gorgeous beads! But I thought this stunning bead deserved more, a whole bracelet.
It was just last week that I finished my Trollbeads bangle by adding Giant Lotus to the Flower Diamond glass with Lotus Top. Also on this bangle is the Anemone Pendant with Anemone glass and a Pandora amythist and onyx cabochon. I decided to incorporate these beads into the Hippy bracelet. All the flowers are beautiful and make a big statement!
I also wanted to add Ohm beads Mama Terra, Bead of the Month April 2016. When I look at her I hear that song about going to San Francisco! And added Ohm beads Love Hurts, two Ohm beads crystals, Trollbeads Only one you, two miniature muranos and some Pandora cabochons. I put it on the Trollbeads clover anniversary bracelet.
So here is my Hippy bracelet. It is a design I never made before, I always make symmetrical bracelets. But I am so in love with it, it is psychedelic, free spirited, hippy, flower power, lovely and fun! I am glad I changed my mind and did order it in the end (thank you jeweller Arie de Koning!)
And to finish of, I made this design:
