I already had one Organic Bubbles, I had bought this early on as I was finishing my very first bracelet. I decided this would be a good multiples bead for my Rocky Beach Bracelet, and as these things sometimes happen, within the space of a few days I went from 1 to 4!
A Sweet Swap
I suggested a swap between myself, a friend and another seller as both had beads to buy and sell that weren't compatible for a straight swap, however with what I had to offer and what I wanted in return it would work as a 3-way swap.
A Light Turquoise Prism was sent to my friend, who sent Organic Bubbles to me and I in turn sent a Pink Bud to the original seller - Result!

As you can see my swap bead is darker and plumper than the one I already have and the bubbles run down the centre rather than the pattern you see on my other two beads.
I love the great variations you can find with Trollbeads, my next 2 beads arrived together and were bought on a whim because of the amazing colours. They are really unusual and great for my Rocky Beach Bracelet; although they hadn't arrived in time to be photographed for the original blog post.
I was so pleased with these beads, that having missed the delivery I had to take a quick shot when I picked them up from the depot to show my friends before I got them home, it was a beautiful sunny day which really showed off their colours, a lovely "muddy green", great for representing UK winter rock pools and really unusual to come across two at the same time.

So now I have four, and I only need three for my current project - oh well, you can never go wrong with having a spare!
