Trollbeads Native Elements Kit

Trollbeads Native Elements Kit is just the caterpillar's knees.

Lets start by describing it:

It's green ...I don't even like green (especially not olive green, and how does olive green go with turquoise anyway) but it is ugly in a sexy way.  It's earthy and natural.  These beads looks like they will ooze orange goo if you squish them!

The shapes are so odd and quirky you just find it following you home from the shop and then wondering where you are going to put it.  But when you find it's bracelet niche it's amazing. 

Like Kermit once sang "It's not easy been green" but...
"It's beautiful! and I think it's what I want to be."

It make me happy that I have other Trollbeads that just don't fit in with the popular crowd (like Deep Bubble's and Green Shade).

It's made from ladybirds, caterpillars and the head chopped off a praying mantis.

So here are some of my highlights of this kit

Red Pod meets Green Shade

Muppets - It's Not Easy Been Green
It's not that easy being green;
Having to spend each day the colour of the leaves.
When I think it could be nicer being red, or yellow or gold-
or something much more colourful like that.
It's not easy being green.
It seems you blend in with so many other ordinary things.
And people tend to pass you over 'cause you're not standing out like flashy sparkles in the water-
or stars in the sky.
But green's the colour of Spring.
And green can be cool and friendly-like.
And green can be big like an ocean, or important like a mountain, or tall like a tree.
When green is all there is to be
It could make you wonder why, but why wonder why?
Wonder, I am green and it'll do fine, it's beautiful!
And I think it's what I want to be.
