Trollbeads

Today at work my friend Mackenzie told me about these things called Trollbeads. Basically, one picks out a bracelet and a clasp. Then, as major events happen in your life you buy a troll bead or someone buys one for you, and one adds it to their bracelet. By the time the bracelet is full, each bead is different and represents a special moment, challenge, event, or whatever that has occured in their life.

~ Trollbeads, where every bead has a story and every story has a bead~

the website of trollbeads' history: What started as an idea 30 years ago in Denmark now has become a phenomenon. Internationally acclaimed Trollbeads are sold in over 40 countries, designed by over 18 artists, and have the distinction of being unique and special to each wearer.
The process of production uses ancient techniques in a new way, resulting in remarkable color and design combinations. Sterling silver, 14K and 18K gold, pearls, amber, gemstones, and Italian glass are used to make bracelets, necklaces, beads, earrings, rings, and pendants.
Trollbeads relate a message or story, the combinations of color and design are endless, the craftsmanship of the highest quality, and the result is a beautiful and meaningful piece of jewelry that you will love to wear or give. There is even a bead that can be engraved with your personal message, (The Scroll Bead).

an example of a bead is the tower bead. The tower symbolises power and ambition, but it can also represent thoughtful isolation, meditation and wisdom.
