Trollbeads

he story of Trollbeads started in 1976 in Denmark. The first bead was a small bead decorated with no less than 6 “Troll” faces. It was designed by Søren “Silversmith” Nielsen and sold from his father Svend’s jewelry shop in central Copenhagen.

Later, glass, gold, gemstones and pearl beads were introduced and new locks were designed making it possible to add or remove beads and experiment with different combinations.

3. Select Beads that express your personal style!

Design Your Own

Create your own unique jewelry by adding a lock and beads to a chain and decide which story you want to tell. You can also create a piece inspired by beauty, diversity, color, feeling or occasion.

“People are always commenting on my bracelet. I think it is fascinating to think that an item of jewelry can spark off a conversation–quite simply, it forms a connection between otherwise unconnected people.” -Lora Durr, Trollbeads collector.

Handcrafted Quality Trollbeads jewelry is made from 18-carat gold, sterling silver, Italian glass, freshwater pearls, and precious stones, and is created from a blend of traditional and modern techniques. The gold and silver Trollbeads are modeled using the so called ‘cire perdu’ or ‘lost wax’ method. This 3,000 year old technique allows for fine details to be reproduced from wax to precious metals. Each glass bead is handmade from red-hot glass in the open flame and no two Trollbeads are ever completely alike.

More Than Jewelry Trollbeads has some of the most creative and loyal friends in the world, and we love to engage with them. Together we make global events happen every year. One of the most popular event to this date has been the annual “People’s Bead” event. Trollbeads receives suggestions for new designs every day, and some of these ideas are very beautiful and innovative. Therefore, an event has been created which gives Trollbeads friends the opportunity to become real Trollbeads designers.
