I had both and sold the 2-tone (gold/silver). So I still have the all gold. Now I have just since yesterday been debating trying to swap for the 2-tone again, I wish I had kept it, it is more my style. SO I am no help! Rolling Eyes

Another vote for the two tone version :-) I love the contrast of the smooth gold and the dark rough silver.

It is good to see both versions in action, gorgeous bracelets from Kathleen and Beady-Eyed!

I prefer the two tone version too, think it works best with the contrast. I love mine and wear it on every bracelet ~ although my skin makes the dark oxidation wear off so I keep ending up with gold and light silver and have to re-oxidate it (tricky not getting the liver of sulphur on the gold hoops Rolling Eyes ).

I also prefer the contrast between the gold and textured, dark silver.

The bicolor version is much more artistic IMHO. It's one of the most beautiful beads TB ever made. But it is so personal, just follow your own heart.

Many thanks you for sharing your thoughts (and the lovely pics of course!)
It's very helpful to read about the pros and cons and to get points of view Very Happy
Still will have to sleep about it, but there's a combo in the catalogue, that I can't get out of my mind: it has the two tone version together with cherry blossom,origami, buttons, ball of yarn and a few white pearls...... I love you

Sorry for being late to your question: I have the two-tone version and I love it. The dark silver adds depth to it IMHO and I love the contrast - like day and night, yin and yang - it adds balance to my bracelet Smile

Nicely done and much cheaper than TB, but somehow it'd bug me to have something so obviously copied and not being Troll...
Like I'd never be happy with a fake designer bag Rolling Eyes ...

Oh... and I'd go for the two-tone one as well. I have and love it for the same reasons mouseoncheese stated!

In fairness to her though, people were asking her to make one like the TB...me included until I got lucky to get the real deal

I don't own either but have always thought the two tone one is beautiful and artistic like someone else noted.

Oooh that etsy shop also sells an all silver 2 tone version. Drool!
