Do you remember what your first Elfbeads purchase was? Part of my first haul, definitely included a set of Flowertwigs! The Soft Flowertwigs to be exact. These special beads that come with a layer of decorative flowers and stems sitting on top of the glass bead is clearly a crowd favorite.
Flowertwigs come in both “world” and “donut” shaped beads. If I’m not mistaken, the World Flowertwigs are a fairly recent addition to the Elfbeads catalogue. The color range is endless. Not only is there a lot going on inside the bead in terms of color and sparkle, but look closely as even the flowertwigs themselves come in different shades.
As far as designing Flowertwigs, I think they look great with silver beads, mixed with other Flowertwigs, or in a glass only design. They add some serious magic to any bracelet!
Last but not least, I love to use Flowertwigs with other brands. I’ve used them mostly in my Pandora designs as I find them super complimentary. With Pandora providing less and less glass options, I am usually able to find something that matches perfectly. After consulting with a fellow Elfbeads collector, we decided that the Golden Sunshine Flowertwig was the perfect match for my Beauty and the Beast bracelet design.
What is your take on Flowertwigs? Are they a staple in your collection or something you have considered adding? Leave us a comment and let us know!
