I couldn't resist...

Post by cottinghamgirl on Thu May 03, 2012 11:01 am

buying these 'Laura Ashley' OOAKS from Vonnewe. I had been hoping to find some (or even one) ever since she posted a photo of these on a bracelet a while ago. I have always loved tiny flower designs and chose Laura Ashley clothes and wallpaper when I was young, so these beads are perfect for me. I am very happy with them.

I was thinking of a white pearl and one of the palest of pink agates to go on here.

They are so pretty!! Very 'Laura Ashley'... were they part of a LE set, and were there other 'designer' beads, do you know?

I send this question in 2010 with the picture of the Laura Ashely bead

Hello


This is the one I mean, It comes in soft milky blue tone and a very milky green tone.

I'm lucky to own one! but it would be great if there were more like these :-) they are fabulous.

kind regards


Hi Linda,

The bead that you are so lucky to own is a OOAK (One Of A Kind)-bead. They are not a part of the collection but unique and special beads.
Your bead is actually made by a Tibetan refugee.
Trollbeads is all about finding the treasures.

Have a lovely evening.

Med venlig hilsen / Best regards

That's really interesting, Fairy3. I have a couple as well, and always wondered why they called them 'Laura Ashley' beads. Thanks for the information!

That is a really beautiful softly coloured bracelet. They are very reminiscent of Laura Ashley textile designs
