Love is all around. As days get longer, we feel it the most. Love. Fresh a and renewed. It is in the sprouting branches and the blooming flowers. It is in the singing of the birds and the air we breathe.
Enter the season with an open mind and a warm heart and be ready for love stories to grow and renew.
The Trollbeads Love Stories Collection will be available online and in stores on January 17, 2020. I have a selection of the pieces to show today and since it is winter here in Canada, the pretty pastel colours really are delightful to see.
Let’s start with one of the rings, simply because I really like it. This is the Elegant Fantasy Ring ($72 USD/$87 CAD) with the glass bead called Trust ($50 USD/$61 USD).
Here’s what it looks like on my finger, with one of the new stones, Serpentine ($72 USD/$83 CAD).
Here is the Serpentine alongside other green gemstones. Left to right are the Serpentine, Amazonite, Emerald, Green Aventurine and Malachite.
The other new stone is a Feldspar Quartz Rock ($72 USD/$83 CAD) shown here with the adorable Home silver bead ($39 USD/$40 CAD).
Here is the Home bead along with another new silver bead called Love Rings ($39 USD/$40 USD), both designed by Louise Rimpler. I love small silvers!
As you can see from this view, Love Rings has a tiny heart in it. The other two silver beads pictured below are designed by Søren Nielsen. The flash of pink is a reflection from the shirt I was wearing!
Joyful Flower ($50 USD/$61 CAD) is in the middle and on the right is Flow ($50 USD/$61 CAD).
Let’s move on to the glass! There are two kits and I think they really look great together.
Love Song Kit will retail for $248 USD/$304 CAD. The beads will be available as singles for $50 USD/$61 CAD.
Below left to right are Song of Love, Aisle of Passion, Voice of Romance, Song of Hope, Aisle of Luck and Voice of Happiness. This kit was designed by Tenzin Phuntsok and Kalden Chophel.
This next kit is my favourite. It’s called Love Story and was designed by Tashi, Dhundup and Dolma. Once again, I love how Trollbeads lets us know who the designers are. Over the years it has allowed me to develop an affinity for certain bead makers.
Below, left to right, are Romance, Promise, Joy, Innocence, Trust and Kindness.
There is one more glass bead, called White Roses ($50 USD/$61 CAD).
I’ve got a few more photos. It’s always hard for me to get photos of spring beads in the dead of winter, I’ve got to say! 😀
One thing I’d like to mention to my Canadian readers is that some of these beads are a real bargain for us to buy in Canada. I’m not sure why, but some of them are quite underpriced according to our exchange rate, so I’d advise you to order them at the Canadian Trollbeads website instead of at an American store.
Please do let me know what you think of these beads. Again, this is not the whole collection, but just a selection. They’ll be available to buy at Trollbeads.com on Friday.
As always, these samples were provided by TrollbeadsUSA.
Hello Martha, I have followed your blog for ages but this is my first time leaving a comment! Your photos are wonderful as always. Of the two kits I too like the Love Stories one the most, such pretty colours. But top of my wish list will be the White Roses glass, hope it will be as lovely irl as the Mothers Rose that I love. The Joyful Flowers silver is so cute and also on my list. Looking forward to Friday’s release date now ☺
Hi Janis and thank you for leaving a comment! I think a lot of people are excited for the White Roses. I don’t have the pink one so wasn’t able to compare the two. I also think the Joyful Flower is so cute!
This is one of the most beautiful collections ever!
I will definitely order the ring as it is amazing, and it looks very comfortable, too.
I love both kits, each and every colour and design. I’m so looking forward to Friday now, thanks to this wonderful post. Your photos are glorious as ever and your stylings are always delightful.
Have a great day and thank-you for making my day so bright and exciting!
Hi Sarah! I’m so happy you like this collection. The more I look at the glass, the more I think these kits will become some of my all time favourites. I think just one or two at a time will be the way I enjoy them as they are quite intricate. You’ll have to let me know which ones you decide to get!
Hi Martha, your photos are lovely as always! This is a pretty release, I do love the soft colors. I’m afraid though that with the constant price increases, I’m just not that interested in the brand anymore. I would rather buy precious and semi-precious jewelry than glass and have started occasionally picking gold pieces during promos. I will say that the the White Roses design is interesting just based on the history of that design, but I will wait to see size and execution before deciding to purchase. The new green stone is a lovely color, but again the price point just seems unreasonable. Always appreciate your reviews and the lovely photos. 💕
Hi Tanya! I think a lot of collectors are unhappy about the price increase. I absolute love the new green stone as it’s a lovely olive colour. I’m sad you aren’t interested anymore but thank you for taking the time to comment!
I am very excited about this new spring release! Both glass kits are especially lovely!
First on my wishlist is the Trust bead from the Love Story kit. I absolutely adore that pale shade of blue with gold. I am also delighted with both adorable birds from the Love Song kit. Finally, I am especially excited to see the White Roses bead! It’s such an exquisite design! For the past few years, I have been pining over the Mothers Rose. I truly regretted not purchasing it when I had the chance. I do prefer pink, but the white is certainly beautiful as well!
Thanks so much for this detailed review and for sharing your beautiful photos, Martha!💖🐦💚
Hi Carol! I can see why the Trust bead is high on your wishlist with your love of blue beads! I’d love to see a bracelet made with multiples of it. I particularly like the purple bird (of course). I think the birds would go nicely with some of your Fenton beads. Thanks for reading and commenting!
Thanks for the pictures and lovely combinations Martha, they certainly do show the beads off really well. You put my favourites all together which was brilliant – Voice of Happiness, Serpentine stone and Promise. But to be honest won’t be rushing to buy them, will wait until I can get to a store.
Take care 😊
Hi Marisa! Well, I’m glad I unwittingly put together your favourites 😀. How nice that you will be able to choose some in person!
Thank you for an awesome review!
I love this collection, specially the glass, I love these colourfull and intricate designs.
I saw that there will be a significant price increase in glass beads in the US and I am wondering if you know if they are also going to increase the current prices in Canada.
I budgeted to get both these new glass kits when they launch but I also want the glass kits from Spring 2019 and I am wondering if instead of getting the new kits I should get the 2019 ones now on Trollbeads Canada before the US price increase date. I was waiting to get the 2019 kits on some sale but now I am afraid of the price increase and unsure if it will affect the Trollbeads Canada store or not.
With our current exchange rate I have been mostly buying from Trollbeads Canada as it isn’t worthy buying from the US anymore most of the times.
Hi Suzy! Yes, the price is going to increase in Canada also. From what I can tell, the Spring 2019 glass kits are going to go from $221 CAD to $305 CAD on Friday, Jan. 17, which is quite a jump. Definitely it might be a good idea to get the older kits now!
Love the colors in this collection. I want the green stone, love rings, joyful flower, white roses & the purple bird. Probably so much more lol. These are my favorite type colors including pink. The old feldspar looks nice with the green stone.
Melissa, I love the Feldspar Moonstone with the Serpentine. And the purple bird is so sweet!
Very late replying To this blog, love love the white rose which I have bought , I do hope for more colours a blue one would be fabulous, and a pair of the evolution spacers for Christmas even if I have to buy it for myself 😀 Not sure about the new gem stones, have yet to see them in the real.
Oh, a blue rose would be fantastic!
