In a previous post I explained all about the small and beautiful bead kits (or rather Leann at Charms Addict did) and how I still had several beads I really wanted. My top most wanted was the Navy Galaxy; but try as hard as I could, I just could not get a small and beautiful one.
Then came what the community called the big and beautifuls. Same style of beads but with a universal core (bigger holes to fit all the other branded bracelets and not just troll) and larger glass, closer to a Troll standard glass production bead size. But I still couldn't score a Navy Galaxy even though they were less desirable to a lot of collectors due to the bigger core - some folk just really don't like Universal Cores, often shortened to UU rather than classic core CC if you wondered what all those acronyms stood for.
So it looked like I was never going to get my hands on one, then enter my trollfairy - who won the chance to get a knockout Big and Beautiful Navy Galaxy, and gave it to me for the retail price she paid for it - so given how hard it has been to get hold of this, I've been very lucky to have one at this price.
This was a really hard bead to photograph on it's own, however I had no problem using this in a bracelet! Time for a new combination!
I've been wearing this one double stacked with another blues bracelet, but more on that very soon!
