Trollbeads Wings of Freedom Review

This Trollbeads blog post brings a review and live photos of the country specific bead for the US.

‘Wings of Freedom’ (US11505) designed by Soren Nielsen … The majestic eagle has been depicted as a symbol of strength, courage and freedom since the beginning of time.

This bead is simply stunning in terms of detailing, and is a significantly large silver bead, particularly in comparison to the ‘Falcon’ from the Spring 2014 release.

Whilst I have primarily taken photos of the bead on a bangle for ease of showing all angles, this bead sits much better on a chain.  The bead is not symmetrical, therefore  it does not easily sit between beads or stoppers, however on a chain its back and wings rest again your skin (as in the last photo above).

I think this bead will primarily be worn by myself as a focal bead on a necklace. For any Trollbeads enthusiast, I would definitely recommend this bead as a must-have, even if purely for the craftsmanship of this bead.

Trollbeads Fall 2014 US Launch Event Bead – Wings of Freedom

Following the unveiling of Trollbeads Fall 2014 collection, another image appeared on social media of a US specific launch event bead – Wings of Freedom (US11505)

This Limited Edition bead depicts a beautifully detailed eagle, which is dedicated to the emblem of the USA, the bald eagle.

A trend already adopted in the US, we have seen the Limited Edition Launch Event Beads ‘Eternal Love’ and ‘Pink & Orange Armadillo’ beads, and more recently the Red Sponge Coral and Blue Sodalite. The Eternal Love and Armadillo (along with other colours Green & Purple, Red & Lavender and Mint & Lavender – not Launch Event beads but initially only in the US) eventually made their way over to Europe in limited availability (particularly the Eternal Love), however the Red Sponge Coral and Sodalite did not appear outside of the US. Therefore, there was initially some questions as to whether this bead would be limited to the US, however it has been confirmed that the bead should debut in Europe, albeit a little later, arriving in October. The bead will have a recommended retail price of £60 / €67 / $72.

This bead is definitely a ‘must-have’ for me, providing I can manage to get my hands on one!
