New ring!

For Christmas, I didn't get the black diamond bead--but that's okay. I got some Christmas money, so I'll probably end up buying it for myself eventually! But I do have a new Trollbeads ring--which is the Black Pearl Trollbeads ring. Here is the picture:

And here is the story:

What I get to see every time I go to work...

This is probably one of my favorite things to look at when I'm at work. I really love the gold Trollbeads Fantasy necklace and the gold Trollbeads bracelet.
And can you believe that we have all those cases of bead jewlery to look at?? The one in the middle is the limited edition case--and the manager has added even more trays of limited edition beads--so there's a great selection for me to drool over...

The Diamond Bead, Black

The past few days were busy at work, because we had a Trollbeads Trunk show (the specials are ongoing until the 24th of December). It has been hectic, and it's hard not to get tempted while I sit at the Trollbeads table with my fellow Trollbeads fans! I thought I'd just show you which bead I am dying to get this Christmas (but we'll see if I do--no problem if I don't--I can always treat myself after Christmas...)

The Diamond Bead, Black

"Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend" was sung by Marilyn Monroe in the 1953 film, Gentleman Prefer Blondes. Thirteen cubic zirconias are embedded in this crystal orb. The bead is lined with black glass.

Welcome to my blog!

Let me introduce myself. I'm Stacey, and I'm a Trollbeads fan! I started learning about Trollbeads at the store where I work (Vale Edge Florist & Gifts in Ravenna, Ohio)-we started carrying them about two years ago, and my one bracelet was soon accompanied by a Fairy Fantasy necklace and later, a second bracelet.

It's hard not to get addicted to Trollbeads, so I thought I would share my love for the jewelry via this blog. Each time I post, I will feature a new bead or tidbit about Trollbeads. Incidentally, Vale Edge is having a trunk show December 18-21, 2008. (We have great specials on Fantasy necklaces and bracelets!)

So, with that, enjoy!

And to kick off this blog, here is a picture of the first bead that I got--two years ago!
