TB Spring Release

Post by kyhalfpt on Fri Jan 22, 2016 11:48 am

Playing around with my new things from the Spring Release:

I did not expect to like the feather pendant--but it really is great!


I knew the cranes were coming home with me and the flock is getting along just fine Laughing

wow, that's a wonderful mix of old and new. Kyhalfpt, what is your opinion on the strength of the Crane lock when using it on a full bracelet?
I have played with it yesterday at my LD, and although I really love the new Crane lock, I found it very light. Am doubting if (when I do buy it ofcourse Laughing ) if it will be used on a full bracelet.

The new crane lock does seem a bit thin when looking at it--but definitely seems strong to me.  My dealer had 3 and all of them seemed well made--no gaps between the joining ends--like TB locks sometimes have.  I have had it on non-stop for about a week now always with a full bracelet and haven't had any issues.  It is also much easier to use than the swan lock--since the beak is nice and smooth.

Thanks! I have a bit of an obsession with the garden snow bead. I have promised myself not to buy any more--or any more ooaks that are similar...

Really lovely combos! I am so happy for you that the new beads have birds and feathery stuff in it. TB must have done that especially for you! Love cat

Of course, I think they should always have bird related beads Laughing Laughing

Oh! I love that! I also don't have a TB chain that long. I wonder if it would look just as good centered as it would off to the side. Love the lines. Love it on your FN, too, but I sold mine as I rarely wore it.

Fabulous bracelets!  And not just because of the old Cranes  Razz   I also think that feather pendant is a stunner!

I also like it off to the side on the long chain--but I think it would fall to the center if there wasn't something on the other side of the necklace to balance it--looks great on the display though! I go through spurts of wear with my FNs--currently the new pendant has kept it in regular use.

Thank you for the comparison new - old cranes. Had not seen that...

As everybody else I love the green bracelet.
And the feather pendant is really nice. so far it had not interested me, but now...

I have a Charlotte Ehinger-Schwarz Necklace wearing an owl and a pearl on the side, they stay sort of, but still they tend to move to the bottom. But nevertheless, I love the idea Smile

Thanks for this info,Hug although my LD had only one Crane lock, it was very neat, without any gaps.
So I might go for it (if it isn't already gone)
