I Love prisms!! I have four: lime, light blue, purple, and green. I wouldn't be able to make a bracelet up without putting at least one prism on it.

I have only just discovered the delights of prism's. My DH hates them. Even my two Old Pink Prism's. He says they look like cheap plastic! But I don't wear my bracelet for other people. I wear it because I love it!

It seems to me the opaque ones like Denim (I don't have a Pink Prism so I wouldn't know about that) don't flash and magnify the light like the transparent ones do. It'd possible they could look more similar to plastic. Still, if they're right for some combination then that's what you want! Who cares what someone else thinks about one bead out of a whole combination?

I think the prisms are the hardest-wearing of all the troll glass.

They have never seemed cheap (possibly because they aren't!) or flashy to me. I have a few non-Troll prisms that are cheaper and flashier. I love them because they bring a lightness and sparkle to a combo, highlighting the other glass beads and keeping a design from being too pattern-busy.

I have nine divine prisms to date.

I agree with neonfiller that the blockier cut is great;

like mola and lindakm, prisms appear on nearly every bracelet I put together;

and like wildthing and snowy, when I get the rare ignorant comment from those poor souls who know no better, I just smile quietly to myself and love my beautiful bracelet all the more.

I like prisms but I just can't find any that are quite right. I've bought and traded 3 or 4 turquoise prisms as the colours haven't been quite what I've wanted so I've given up on them for now. Sad

Drool, I love your bracelet Kionee! I didn't love the prisms at first, but I do now and always include at least one. I found them too sparkly at first, certainly not plasticky . I buy my own beads, DH doesn't mind, I guess he's more bemused than anything.

I love prisms, just need to get the last few then i'll have all of them. I first thought they were too flashy for me but then I grew to love the. I use them a lot, with other beads or all prism bracelets.

I love your prism rainbow Kionee I love you

That's the only non-trollbeads one. It's a swarowski crystal. Someone from a german forum helped me getting it and drilled a big enough hole in it for me Love

I love prisms too, especially the green ones, always think they look great on either side of bigger beads like the daisy for example, and at the end of a bracelet. Lovely bracelet, Kionee!

Anyway: I love prisms no matter what they look like. To me they look like prisms.


lololololololol feminist is good, but for goodness sake a gift is out of kindness of their heart don't turn it away.. there is a great deal of pride in a man when he offers the woman( caretaker of his heart ) a gift ..
