Rolling Troll has been dismissed

Post by Mabel on Wed Nov 19, 2014 4:38 pm

My new Ouroboros Dragon arrived and so Rolling Troll on my Dragon bracelet had to be dismissed.....  He did a good job while holding the place for the dragon to come Very Happy
Sorry - but I can´t capture all the details of this piece of art - he seems to live on the bracelet and not just to sit there!

Love this so much. Your Vertebrae is great too! I am also drawn to the smooth gemstone bead that is at the 1:00 o'clock position that sits to the right of your brown pearl and to the left of your world tour auspicious bead. Nicely done!

Thank you all very much for your warm comments - I have this bracelet for very long now and everytime I need a bit extra strength it is my choice of wearing.

It is an ocean jaspis from Samantha Price (pixiebeadcharms). The golden rutilated quarz at nearly twelve o´clock and the obsedian at four o´clock are also from her - I am so sad that she doesn´t have her shop on etsy any more, I love her stones and the versatility she had.

There is a little story attached to two off the pearls - the ones that sit next to the ends of the bracelet. Two years ago I got the swiss clock dangle as a present from my husband for christmas and I put it on a mini combo between those two pearls, two stoppers and the troll tree lock on a bracelet. I had it on my right wrist where I usually don´t wear any bracelets and wasn´t used to it. It was the day before christmas eve and we went shopping - several stores, one of them in France (they have the better fish). On our way back I noticed that the bracelet was missing - I was so so shocked. We drove all the way back starting at the shop in France and searched everywhere and asked everybody we could get hold on. Nothing. Then we drove to the first shop on our trip (nearest to where we live). It was dark already and at that point I could´nt cry any more - but I suddenly had the feeling that I should check the parking lot where we had our car that morning. And there it was - it had been run over several cars during the day - the pearls looked dull and had severe scratches and chips (on the other side - you can´t see on the picture) - BUT except some tiny scratches the dangle was as good as new. I couldn´t believe it and since then these pearls have been my lucky pearls as they have protected in a way the dangle from getting flatened.
What had happene with the lock? - I must have been stuck in my back pack while unloading and it got strechted - badly - but my jewelier fixed it and it is still used on my leather band. Very Happy

I miss pixiebeads on etsy also. She had the best gemstones. She drilled and cored many gemstones for me through the years, and I loved her etsy shop. I looked for her a short time ago on etsy because I have some gemstones I would like drilled and cored, and I was shocked that her etsy shop was no longer there. I sent her a message on Facebook. But she has not responded. I hope she is well and everything is good with her. Do you or does anyone know why she closed her etsy shop? Is she OK? I love your pixiebeads ocean jasper gemstone. It's a really, really good one. And so are the other two you have from her. This bracelet is striking and I am glad you found your bracelet with the pearls and swiss clock. That was quite a story.

Fantastic bracelet...I felt for you reading your story Mabel Hug


Bubbagump- I remember when the store was closing Sam said she had some family commitments...Recently I found out (via another site) that she still has an Etsy store but she sells wrapped jewllery...I will have a search and post a link...I've seen her beads (Rogotroll's) and I agree they are amazing.

I am so glad you got your pearls and bracelet back!. I would have been sick to lose a bracelet like that. I will have to wear my safety chain from now on. I am really bad about wearing it now.
