Trollbeads Bracelet | My Story


January 20, 2013 (Sunday) - the day I entered Trollbeads Robinsons Magnolia branch not knowing that I will be fascinated by the various Trollbeads designs and eventually start my very first collection.

Every Story Has A Bead

Through the years, I have collected various beads with every occasion arises. I am meticulous as to what Trollbeads and/or glass beads that go into my bracelet. It's personal- I choose a bead that is symbolic to me because I am living up to Trollbeads' tagline "Every Story has a Bead". After five years, finally, I have completed my Trollbeads collection and I could not wait to show it to you.

Looking Back | Where It All Started

Glass Beads: Colorful Joy in Teal for Imagination Php 1,595; Oasis Php 1,595
Phoenix Php 2,295

Oasis - in the middle of the dessert it suddenly appears. So full of life
Phoenix - a symbol of rebirth. Associated with the sin, the phoenix obtains new life by arising from the ashes

My first purchase was a Luck & Joy starter bracelet. Choosing the initial color of the bead is very crucial because you will have to play around with that shade if and when you decide to fill your bracelet. Why I ended up with teal? Read about it here.

I guarantee you that collecting Trollbeads is addicting and that you will not stop at just one bracelet. Just look at me, I ended up with four!

Glass Beads: Shades of Peace Php 1,595, Fairy  Php 3,495 and Beach Php 1,595

Shades of Peace - like the sun playing with drops of rain a change occurs and suddenly colours are all over.
Fairy - at dawn the fairies sprinkle morning dew on every blade of grass and cornflower, vanishing well before we wake up to the sight of their fairy masterpiece gleaming in the sun.

In as much as I would like to say that I have a favorite bead from my collection, I don't. Every single bead was meticulously chosen and scrutinized. Remember that each glass bead is handmade over a red-hot open flame and no two glass beads are ever completely alike (size, color and pattern).

Fairy takes the center stage of my bracelet as it has both silver and glass. I worked with the purple hue of the glass for the subtle transition of color- blue on one side and green on the other side. 

Yes, it's Personalized!

Letter Bead M Php1,595

I am MrsMartinez. My name is Michelle. Need I say more?

Spiritual Dragon Php 2,895

Spiritual Dragon - Shenlong the spiritual dragon is said to generate wind and rain for the benefit of mankind. 

The Spiritual Dragon and Phoenix are two of the most elusive and ornate beads in my collection. Looking at the intricate designs make one appreciate how well crafted they are.

Family Php 2,395

Family - mother and father walking with their newborn in the baby stroller; proud and filled with love.

Trollbeads are limited in quantity. Some popular ones like this Family bead are on per order basis. It's so popular, the ones in the store were either already sold or reserved. It's really flying off the shelves!

Rose of June Php 2,595

Rose of June - different colour roses have different meanings, but they are all inquisitive, clever and versatile and represent the birth flower of June, with love and beauty hiding a freshwater pearl between its leaves. 

In my opinion, Rose of June is a must-have bead. It represents my mom who always has my back just like the peek-a-boo fresh water pearl beneath its leaves.

Heaven Crane Lock

Heaven Crane Lock Php 2,895

Heaven Crane Lock - the crane is said to be the link between heaven and earth. It is a beautiful messenger and a symbol of freedom and longevity.  A flying crane, may draw your eyes to the heavens, lift your spirits, and inspire you to trust  in the universe. If you see it standing, it may be advising vigilance and alertness.

When I first set my eyes on Heaven Crane lock, I instantly fell in love with it. As with all the other beads in my collection, I patiently waited for my order to arrive. It was one of the beads that completed my story.
