Next stop on today's unforgettable Trollbeads World Tour is the Baltic States. Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania are called the Baltic Sisters, they have a lot in common and still they are very different, just like sisters or daughter can be! I have 2 daughters, who are of course sisters and let me tell you from experience this statement is true on so many different levels!


Mushroom Family

Lithuania is still thought of as an unknown territory for many, but this country is incredibly beautiful with their varied landscapes filled with forests, lakes, hills, plains, and even beaches make it a beautiful country. But what about the situation regarding mushrooms growing there? Lithuania is rich in mushrooms, more than four hundred varieties are found alone in their forests.

Trollbeads has marketed this silver charm as a sweet mushroom family snuggled closely together, who remind us of the joys of family and how important it is to have someone in your life to depend on. This silver charm is so sweet and precious and for me would totally symbolize my family and how I lean on them in good, as well as bad times. I look at the mushrooms and visualize my husband and our two girls. For someone else, it may truly mean something else, but as I said this charm for me embodies the essence of my family.


Lithuania's Bead

We have already spoken quite in depth about Lithuania's landscape from the previous mushroom silver bead, but Lithuania is a small country, much like this glass bead is and features the colors of Lithuania's flag with the colors of yellow, green and red.

If you look at this glass bead closely, you can see how much it truly means by digging deeper into the meaning of the colors. The yellow color is represents the sun.. The green color symbolizes nature. And the red color is quite frankly a symbol of courage. This glass bead simply put is Lithuania and is truly a stunning bead. I truly love Trollbeads glass and this one is no exception to that rule for me.


Iron Wolf

The legend of the Iron Wolf was the ruler of Lithuania at that time, went hunting in the forest. It got late, night fell and he had to spend the entire night in the forest. During the night he supposedly dreamt about a large wolf in iron armor howling. This dream prompted him to build a fortress around the city of Vilnius, which is now the current capital of Lithuania. So from this legend, Lithuania was actually born and created. Also born from this legend was the Iron Wolf, which has grown to symbolize strength and courage. This silver and glass charm is truly beautiful and embodies the legend of this dream perfectly with the Iron Wolf howling on top of a beautiful black sparkling glass bead representing the very night that this legend took place.


Baltic Gold

Amber is known to be a gold-brown semi precious stone. Amber originates as a soft, substance and then hardens to become a fossil, which may contain animal and/or plants.

The Baltic Sea seems to have a huge amount of amber on its coast. Because Amber has been found vastly here and highly sought after, it has gotten the nickname 'Baltic Gold'.

This glass amber Trollbead sparkles just like the golden sun and lights up your bracelet just like the sun does to the sky. For anyone who loves the Trollbead amber collection, this is a must for them!

Concluding Baltic States

It has been my absolute pleasure to tour Baltic States today in Trollbeads World Tour. Join us for the next hub, when we tour the next country in the Trollbeads World Tour.
