Soleil Beads

Recently I purchased a bead from Glass Artist, Hillary Campfield’s  from her website SoleilBeads. I ordered “Beach Flower”, on the left, because of its beautiful colour, and because I love flower beads, which I hoped would work well with my many coloured flower beads. The beautiful blue bead was a lovely surprise, as Hillary kindly added it to my order without charge. Imagine my excitement!

They are both much bigger than all of my beads but I am very happy with their beauty, colours and quality of craftsmanship. The colour of Beach Flower fits beautifully with many of my beads, which I had hoped, and it makes a wonderful focal bead. Above, it is framed by two Pandora Disney Tinkerbell beads and the gorgeous new Pandora Tropical Parrot. 

Today I went for a swim in Lake Huron, my favourite summer getaway on a day off work. See how perfectly the Blue bead fits with my Elfbeads Jungle Dunes. The sun was suitably blinding and thus the waves of heat coming from the sands have helped to make it appear like a mirage.

It is a rich, watery mix of blue and turquoise. I tried using both beads in various combinations on my Trolbeads bangle and my Pandora leather and silver bracelets with the following, lovely results.

I am very happy with these two spectacular beads and have been enjoying them, usually simply framed by similarly coloured glass beads, just so I can admire them unfettered.

Hillary posts new beads every Thursday  evening on her site, each one is unique and beautiful. I am now checking it regularly, waiting to find the next bead to add to my collection. I have to thank Martha and her beautiful IG account and blog post for featuring her own Soleil beads, which is what sent me hurrying over to Hillary Campfield’s site to make a purchase of my own.
