The idea of beaded charm bracelets is nothing new, but what is all of the hype about this new Trollbeads line?
The story about the original and unique Trollbeads all started in Denmark in 1976. The first bead, which later gave name to the Trollbeads collection, was a small bead decorated with no less than 6 faces. It was designed by Søren Silversmith and sold from his father Svend's jewelry shop in central Copenhagen. The beads were created at a time where it was fashionable to have a silver bead hanging on a leather thong around the neck. But instead of letting the bead hang in an eyelet, Søren wanted to let the leather cord go through the bead. Later on, Søren's sister, Lise, began to put the beads on silver bracelets, one on each bracelet.
Lise opened another jewellery store and one day a customer asked to have an extra bead put on her bracelet. The storekeeper was surprised but followed the customer's wish. From then on, the adventure and Trollbeads movement started. In cooperation with the customers and according to their wishes, the collection grew. This was the invention and the beginning of an original jewellery concept that today is enjoyed worldwide.
Like Faini Designs, Trollbeads is a family business. In addition, Trollbeads is the creator of the original "bead on bracelet" concept. The company started in Copenhagen, Denmark in 1976, with all of the beads made by hand. Fast forward to 2017, and all of the beads are still made by hand in Denmark. The beads come in a variety of sterling silver, gold, pearl, natural gemstones and italian glass. To ensure a wide variety, the company has used over 100 jewelry designers to contribute their own ideas to the collection. The Trollbeads catalog currently features over 600 beads—each with their own unique design and story. Every story has a bead.
Several times per year, the company launches limited edition beads that are produced in small quantities. Get these beads while you can, because they always run out! The latest bead to launch in this limited edition bead is the "Roses for Mom" bead, designed for Mother's Day. The bead is made of italian glass and features roses of different colors all around the bead.
In addition to the original foxtail bracelets, Trollbeads also offers bangle bracelets, leather bracelets, long necklaces, neck bangles, earrings and rings. Faini Designs started carrying the Trollbeads line shortly before Christmas, and its quickly becoming one of our best sellers! Stay tuned for a Trollbeads launch event coming up this spring!
