Trollbeads ♥

Whenever I'm given, or buy myself, anything, I love it to have a meaning, a story; a reason behind it coming into my possession. I cherish the things I own, and look after them. After all, I want to keep them forever. 

Trollbeads are my latest love, jewellery from a family run Danish company that was established in 1976. At that time it was fashionable to wear a single silver bead on a leather thong around the neck and the family redesigned these beads, letting the leather cord go through them, rather than having them hanging in an eyelet, and then extended their collection to include silver bracelets too.

One day a customer asked for an extra bead on her bracelet and the rest, as they say, is history. Others followed suit and the Trollbeads movement started! 

The idea is that you can create your own, unique piece of jewellery. I love collecting things and adored the idea of being able to make something entirely personal to me. Trollbeads are a little like a modern day take on a charm bracelet, I guess, and I can't wait to add to mine! 

These were the items I chose to kick start my collection:

Bohême Pendant (meant for a necklace but worn on a bracelet), £75
Lucky Knot, £25
All c/o Trollbeads

I chose the Chrysanthemum because both of my girls are November babies, the pearl tassel because pearl is my birthstone, the Bohême pendant because I love life, art and music and like to think of myself as being a bit of a free soul, and a lucky knot for fortune and happiness. Apart from their meanings, they're all really rather beautiful aren't they?

What I love most about Trollbeads is that I can add new beads to my bracelet as new chapters in my life begin and eventually it will tell a wonderful story. I wonder what I'll choose next! xoxo
