Big and Beautiful - Navy Galaxy

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!
