For me, this is third time lucky.
Long term readers will be aware of my previous failed quests to acquire the silver and gold Trollbeads Daisy bead. It's not rare; it's a lush 2 tone, large and very detailed chunk of a bead in current production; I was just trying to collect one at a price I could afford, which was nowhere near it's RRP. I have been watching every sale opportunity, and have made several attempts to buy, two of which resulted in orders, money taken for the bead, which were later cancelled due to no stock available.
Buying Daisy has become a bit of a running joke between myself and my troll friends as it slips out of my grasp time and time again, so it was really exciting when one of those friends sent me a message about one becoming available.
Trollbeads Daisy is made up of 3 Daisy heads back to back with petals cast in silver and each disc in gold. Each daisy head is different and together they form a large organic triangular shape.
You get quite a lot of room around the chain when it's on a silver bracelet, nothing to worry about - it's the same with a leather bracelet and it just means you can sit the bead where you like in the design.
Never have I been so happy to buy a particular bead and to feel exactly that same way when it arrived, and several days later - no artificial high of being able to find it at the right price to succumb to a later comedown. I still can't quite believe I finally have *my* Daisy.

This is what I did with it on the day it arrived and I've not changed it since. I love the leather/all silver bracelet combination and can see this being a firm favourite long into the future.
I will get around to playing with Daisy on a silver chain eventually - my original plan, way back then, was to have a Daisy & All Amber bracelet... still sounds good after all this time!
Somebody pinch me; I think I'm still dreaming.
