People are made of stories. Some are defining, and some are just for fun. So move on, benefit from new wisdom and create new stories.
Welcome to a new day and a new you. Welcome to the New Wisdom collection
Greetings! I have a selection of pieces from the New Wisdom collection to show you and I think they are truly delightful. I’m so happy to see new silver flowers designed by Søren Nielsen. Let’s start with the gorgeous Clarity Flower Pendant ($83 USD/$115 CAD). On a Fantasy Necklace, it appears to be gracefully unfolding and envelops a small bead or pearl. I found that it needs a bead in order for it to sit properly.
Here it is from underneath. One could certainly try it on a bracelet, but I think it’s best on a necklace.
Luckily for necklace lovers there is also another pendant called Rose of Beauty ($94 USD/$115 CAD).
It’s meant to clip onto the Changeable Fantasy Necklace. I have a couple of other interchangeable pendants and I really like this system. I’ve already seen people putting it on a bracelet as a dangle, so that would be an option if you don’t already have the necklace.
There’s a new ring to go along with the rose theme and it’s very elegant.
Here is the pendant with the Rose of June bead and the Rose Ring ($127 USD/$158 CAD). Fabulous!
A new splitter bead called Folklore Wisdom is very pretty and costs $50 USD/$61 CAD. It can be worn on a bracelet also, but due to its triangular shape, it will be hanging down a bit.
There are two new locks, the first being the Crisp Flower Lock ($72 USD/$86 CAD).
The second one is called White & Green Lock ($83 USD/$95 CAD). It has a white moonstone on one side and a green adventurine on the other side. I really like it, as I’ve always been a fan of the plain lock!
Let’s take a look at the underside of the Crisp Flower Lock, the Clarity Flower Pendant and a better look at the Folklore Wisdom bead.
I have three of the five new spacers that have words on them. The five sayings are I Love Myself, I Love Life, I am Grateful, My Life is a Gift and I Love my Life. Each one retails for $50 USD/$61 CAD and they were designed by Lise Aagaard.
For the last silver piece that I have today, the Clarity Flower ($39 USD/$45 CAD) is sure to be popular. It gently hugs a pearl just beautifully and I will be buying a second one in order to have a pair. I would love to see a full bracelet made of Clarity Flowers and pearls!
Ok, let’s move on to the glass! I have one of the three kits and the other kits look wonderful. The New Wisdom Kit ($305 USD/$366 CAD) is designed by Neetu Gupta. The beads are available as singles for $61 USD/$74 CAD.
I have three favourites. This one is called Attention and will be perfect for the summertime.
This gorgeous olive coloured one is called Universal. It should be noted that I took this picture on the one sunny day we’ve had recently. It is quite a bit more muted looking when not in the sun.
My third favourite is called Holistic and again, I can totally picture using it all summer long.
Here is the whole kit.
Going clockwise starting from the top left, are Universal, Attention, Perception, Sense, Holistic and Choice.
I do have a couple of beads from the Uplifting Bubble Joy Kit and the Bright Bubble Joy ($39 USD/$45 CAD) one is a vivid blue.
Meadow Bubble Joy looks wonderful with the Korean Evergreen bead!
I also have a bead from the Mist of Nature Kit and it’s called Willow ($50 USD/$61 CAD). These earthy tones are so calming.
I’m going to spam you now with some random photos of combos I made using some of these new beads, then wrap things up.
To see the whole spring collection, be sure to visit the Trollbeads website. These beads are just the kinds of pieces that I like, as I’m always a fan of silver flowers. The Rose Ring is just stunning and very comfortable to wear. Do be aware that the faceted glass beads are very small. If you are fussy about size, then you might want to shop from live images or ask a retailer to send a picture to you. If you think they look fine on my full bracelets above, then there is no need to worry. Although it is winter where I live here in Canada, these pieces are sure to give me hope for spring and even summer, when colourful flowers will bloom again and we’ll go back to the beach. I’d love to hear your thoughts and opinions about what you’ve seen today. Thanks for reading!
WOW, quite the beads, something for everyone, love the muted tones of some of the glass beads, the blues are so striking, the silvers will be a great addition to new bracelets as well as already existing ones. Excellent photography, too.
Thank you! Yes, this collection is likely to be popular as it has an old Troll feel that so many of us like. Interesting that there are no pinks or purples, which is what I usually think of for spring. But these glass beads are going to be useful for years to come. Thanks for reading!
Beautiful review, as always 🤗! You’ve made me want so many things.
Thanks Sierra! Have a Happy Birthday today! I look forward to seeing what pieces you choose.
I love love the blue glass, these are the ones I have requested photos of from London before I purchase. I think the greens are really pretty, but I just never seem to reach for green in general so will probably be buying the blues 🙂
Oh, you must be excited for the blue glass then! I think they are really pretty pieces. I’m hoping that Trollbeads Mauritius on Instagram takes pictures of them at the ocean. 😍
I don’t think I follow them, I’ll have to go have a look now 😂.
Yes, every now and then they post a picture at the beach and it makes me want to vacation there. I even looked up flight prices once, but is super pricey to get there from Canada! 😅
So many beautiful treasures in this release Martha, haven’t felt this excited about a new Trollbeads collection in years. But can you imagine that Clarity in gold?! Now that’s exciting!
Oh wow, I’m sure someone will get Clarity Flower custom made in gold and I will be drooling when I see it. 🤤

Clarity Flower pendant and Clarity Flower are definitely my favorites in this collection. I really like that the pendant is carefully designed from all sides and beautiful from any angle. The bead is simply charming and I really liked the way you combine it with pearls, it turned out to be a very delicate combination. From glass, I still prefer bubbles, I like their calm colors.
I agree with you about how the pendant is beautiful from any angle. I much prefer that to beads that are one sided, or ones that look good on the front and back but not the sides.
You can spam away Martha we always love your combinations, thank you so much. I was very drawn to the White & Green lock too, but have added it to the never ending wishlist (its out of stock on the Trollbeads GB website!)
I’ve got a couple of the beads you featured in the post on the way from Trollbeads London, hope that they look equally lovely when they arrive 🥰️
Oh, how wonderful that you have some beads on the way! Yes, the lock is very modern looking, I think. This really is a wonderful collection. Enjoy your weekend!
Fantastic review of the Trollbeads Spring Collection, Martha!
As you probably guessed, I am so excited to see some new beachy blue glass beads in this kit. It reminds me a bit of the Aqua kit that was released several years back! My favorites are Holistic and Attention. (So appropriately named!) Yes, they are absolutely perfect for summertime. I also like the Blue Bubbles bead. It’s such a lovely shade of ocean blue!
I am also quite excited about the silver Clarity Flower. I am very fond of the Trollbeads silvers which “hug” the pearls and round stones. It’s such an elegant and unique look!❤️👏😍
Oh Carol, these blue beads are just perfect for you! I like the Bubbles Beads because they go with so many other beads that are more decorative. I agree with you about the Clarity Flower-silvers that hug pearls are so elegant and delightful. Hope you’re well, Carol!
Great photos, Martha! I especially love your blue combos. They make me think of warm days and ocean breezes, as I sit here looking out the window at the snow falling. The faceted glass kit is gorgeous. I buy very little Troll these days, and one of the few exceptions I find myself making is for faceted glass. It’s hard to choose a favorite but I like the royal blue and green one. And the olive striped one. And the blue and white striped one. Oh dear… I like the green and white lock too, and green is a color I wear a lot, so that is a strong possibility. I also really like the rose ring, though I’ve sadly found in the past that Troll rings are too large in general to look good on my hands. Thanks for sharing your gorgeous photos!
Hi Kim! I am also sitting looking at the snow and these beautiful blues really give me hope for the summertime. The faceted glass really is lovely and I look forward to using them. The rose ring is definitely pretty large. I have large hands so it’s fine on me. The white and green lock is going to be something I use a lot and maybe you would too, to match your colours. Enjoy the weekend!
Wonderful photos! What did I adore? I think I loved the detailed work of the Roses designed by Soren Nielson. I equally loved how you put together the shades of brown bracelet- I think it could flow into Spring. I remember back in the day when people were pairing browns and pinks together (clothing wise) and that was all the rage . I am always on the look out for multi purpose beads ( mixing them up with others colors to use for both winter , spring ,and/ or summer bracelets). I can see the “Perception” bead as one of those beads with its deep blues and greens.
Thank you for the tip on the sizing of the faceted beads, with them being on the smaller spectrum.
Hi Lisa! I also remember the days of brown and pink and still enjoying seeing them together. The roses really are lovely. I’m glad there’s lots that you like here.
Just bought the green & white lock, the Clarity Flowers with spring leaves and pearls would be very pretty bracelet
