LIKE most of us, I absolutely adore jewellery.
But in particular, I love jewellery that tells a story, that shares who we are and what we are all about.
Don’t get me wrong I love a good piece of costume jewellery as much as anyone else, but it’s the little trinkets that once belonged to my Gran, the pieces of jewellery that my husband has bought for me over the years and the stunning diamond locket that I received for my first Mother’s Day which I cherish most of all.
These are the pieces that I would grab in an emergency if I had the chance. The pieces that feel like me. The pieces that I love.
I’m a firm believer that our jewellery should tell our stories and represent who we are to the world. After all, they are such personal items to wear.
And if you’re wondering how to do this through a mere item of jewellery, then wonder no more. Let me introduce you to Trollbeads.
Trollbeads are the original in bespoke bracelets, allowing you to craft your very own piece of jewellery that is unique. Allowing you to share your story, creativity and memories.
Like a modern day charm bracelet, the idea is that you pick a bracelet and then decorate it with beads and charms that carry a special meaning for you or that you simply love. Collecting them across the years to end up with a unique and extra special piece.
The beauty in crafting such a piece of jewellery is of course that your bracelet will be bespoke. Special and one of a kind for YOU! I also love the fact that you can add to it as you go through your life, capturing special moments and times with dazzling charms and colourful beads.
To give you an idea, Trollbeads asked me to create my very own bracelet. And thankfully, it was much easier than I thought! I was so worried that with the hundreds of gorgeous beads and charms that I would struggle to choose, but I was mistaken! It really was as easy as 1, 2, 3.
As I’m always short of time, I decided to use their brilliant app which you can use online or download on your iPhone, to help me create it. All I had to do was answer a few very simple questions and da, daa, my unique bracelet and selected beads appeared within seconds on screen as if by magic! And here it is:
The two charms on the bracelet are my favourite and as two charms are a good number to start off with, these are the ones I’ve gone for.
I opted for my horoscope charm Saggitarius (because I thought it was a rather beautiful reminder of who I am) and the stunning Lavender Prism bead because it’s my favourite colour and it sparkles! Pretty huh?
I loved getting creative with Trollbeads and I think the idea is really rather wonderful. What’s more they make the absolute perfect gift for loved ones at Christmas. And for those men who are reading, this my friends, is for you!…
Gorgeous aren’t they? Do you love them as much as me?
If so, well then I have AMAZING news which you are going to love….because the very kind team at Trollbeads have given me not one, but FIVE (yes five!) stunning limited edition My Sweet Stories bracelets to give away to some very lucky readers just in time for Christmas!
Each bracelet is worth £85 and features a bracelet in sterling silver, a new limited edition lock, 1 glass bead and 1 silver curvy heart. And I don’t know about you but I think it’s adorable!
