It was the first "special to me" collection that had been released since I started collecting that I could participate in from Day 1.
I wish I'd been collecting when the LE 2009 Chinese Silvers had their debut!
I went a bit nuts at the time, but even so I've not been adverse to adding a few more pieces here and there, namely a couple more of the African Amethysts that I've since found (yes of course I need 5, who doesn't?!) and an extra Canadian Jade - as out of the 3 I bought originally, one permanently lives on my Winter Beach Bracelet, along with my 2 red mud jaspers come to think of it (hmm could do with extras of these too).
So without further ado, and with extra amethysts and jades in hand, I thew in some Inner Glows (the twist) and voila!
Purple + Green (my two favourite colours) + Stones = Happy Mars
I didn't make these bangles with a view to pairing them with anything else. However once they were made up I realised there was another bracelet that these might suit; my fabulous Bus Bracelet!
The bonus? I often forget I'm wearing glow in the dark beads so when the Inner Glows start to do their thing as the night draws in, it never fails to make me giggle.
Do you have a favourite collection or set of beads that you really went to town on?
