I am thinking of ordering a special gold this summer. Which one would you advise me to get? I gave the number of the production silver to make clear which beads I'm thinking about.

EDIT: The first choice is actually the Angles triangles (11136), the gold triangles are already in the collection (silver triangles retired last year)

To aid my decision, I calculated the gold weight of each bead from the weight of the silvers. The triangles would be 3.35g (each), the waves 5.86g and the sun circle 8.72g. The current gold price (999 gold) would amount to 115 EUR (triangles), 201 EUR (waves) and 298 EUR (sun circle). Economically I am being very stupid, considering the price quotes I am expecting from TB are likely to be 5 times as much. Rolling Eyes

What, angles, tip in gold isn't one of the choices? Shocked Laughing

Wow! Well, of the three choices you gave us, I would say waves because it reminds me most of your beautiful (sea) designs. I also think you would use this one most. Sun circle would look stunning in gold too so that would be my second choice.

I think Triangles would glitter well in the gold.

Can't - I seem to remember that only production silvers can be custom made in gold! Laughing

Everyone, I think my first poll option may still be a little misleading. I'm thinking of the angles triangles (11136), not the retired triangles (11205) - those are still production gold beads (21812).

Can't edit the poll though! silent

I am going with waves, I think it would be stunning in gold. Suncircle would be a bit big and thin for me to use on a combo. I don't have it in silver for that reason.

I voted Waves, but could just as easily have voted Angles Triangles.
Which size of bead would you use more often, what other beads and bits of gold do you have to balance it with?

Waves would be amazing in gold. The spaces between the waves would likely give the bead depth. Oh how I'd love to see that one! It's one of my favorites in silver.

I vote sun circle- I think it would be one massive bead in gold!!!

How long will it take to have your order completed after you make the decision?!

Thanks everyone for your opinions, keep them coming please! Group hug

@AMo2, I don't know yet - I'll make the call to the jeweller I have in mind this week and I fully expect having to explain the idea to them and persuade them to contact EULIT and/or TB about it. At least they speak German (sort of Laughing ). Then I'll wait very impatiently for their learned response! Laughing

So exciting to have a gold bead made as a special order. bounce
From your three choices I'd also go for waves.
Please keep us informed, how your order will work.

Tough decision, any of them would be stunning in gold, but with 2 Angles Triangles you get the option of symmetry in designs too.

Dear all, I made my decision and ordered one from the selection above from my LD - they said it will take 4-6 weeks to be made in Denmark, so you will just have to bide your time until later this summer. Laughing BTW the price quote was Not all there so I finally have proof I am totally off the rocker. Wink
