Yeah! That would be wonderful. I saw some non-TB on eBay like that and TB could come up with a nice version. I do hope there is something Native American in the collection. There are so many wonderful design opportunities.

Based on recent performance: Can of coke, burger, baseball and maybe they will have found some red glass by July?

There haven't been many buildings recently, so maybe the Statue of Liberty? An eagle would be nice.

lol! Let's hope they'll be a bit more original than that... The Dutch WT beads were a disappointment to me but the US has so many things they could choose from that they should find something special!

A nicely done eagle would be nice, for me the buildings never have much appeal. A flower of some sort would please me as well.

I overheard my TB retailer talking to another customer and said his TB rep told them US tour beads in July also. I will ask him about it again next time I visit.

I could live with the torch, not sure that I would want the whole statue as a bead.

The 4th of July would be excellent! but then the next question will be, will all the shops get the US world tour beads or is there still this gold and platinum stuff going on?

I wonder if the new distributorship will allow the U.S. world tour beads to be shipped abroad by stores. So far it seems that all the other countries' stores have been able to do so. After the U.K. release, there is some hope that there will be some "out of the box" designs.

I was told that all countries will have to stop shipping out of their countries. I just laughed and said the Trollfairies or Trollsister ( I love this word, I was just called this earlier) will take over all international shipping. Razz

We all might as well resign ourselves - its probably inevitable. Agree

Probably not an apple - but an apple pie. Ehh..not sure sure I want to wear a pie.

Interesting...that is exactly what I was thinking..maybe they will do the torch from Lady Liberty...might blend nicely with some of the more masculine beads..Eske Storm, maybe?

The only problem with Libertys torch is it might look like an ice cream cone Neutral

Trollfairies and Trollsisters rock! It was mention at the presentation at the world tour launch party that TB wanted the world tour to encourage friendships around the world as we all swap beads with each other.

I don't see how TB can prevent stores in the EU selling to members in other EU countries. The right to trade freely between EU member states is enshrined in EU law.

They will never be able to get that far, some shops are very inventive and simply exchange World Tour beads with other shops in other countries. And what you say capuchmooch, Trollfairies will always be around cheers

I was thinking maybe a liberty bell. Columbus's flagship Santa Maria with 3 mask's. If Eske Storm still a designer for troll he would be perfect.

Agree

I was told that it was to encourage us to buy from our LD's. The US dealer have been complaining that they are losing business because we are going out of the country to buy beads that cannot be purchased here. Since Lund has been let go we are now told that we will be able to get the same beads UK gets. I was present when my LD called Troll about the LE Gemstones not being available in US, she was told that she could order anything Troll had available. Well... we still have no Gemstones.

I do feel s&$@@y when I go to shop and they notice I have a bead we can't get here.... But hey... I have an addiction and I am going to get my fix anyway I can!!! Sarcasm
