So when the trollbead community grapevine started to ripple I was all ears; someone whispered that the retired pink prism was available to preorder, I then read all about it the following day courtesy of Endangered Trolls and with more information appearing on Charms Addict I was fully informed.
By then I'd already put my order in!
Scroll forward to early December and a little package went plink through my letter box. It's everything that fellow trollies have said it would be, it's a lush pink colour with flecks of gold, a mix between pink and purple and has a lovely cloudy effect. I've shown it below next to the current pink prism, and I'm already wondering if I should have ordered multiples, well at least another one! I can see why it's been such a sought after bead, I'm very pleased to have had the opportunity to purchase one at retail price.

All my prisms in a row, lovely aren't they?
I never get why the Turquoise prism is called that given it's half purple and half green? Ah to answer my own question I went to look it up... www.trollbeads.co.uk describe it as "A mix of blue and green, turquoise has sweet feminine hues, while the darker teal shades add lively sophistication". I still think it looks half purple... and whatever shade you yourself see, I still desire another one!
