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 SΓΈren 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! πŸ˜€

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 on Friday.

As always, these samples were provided by TrollbeadsUSA.
