The Popular Troll Bead Jewellery And Its Many Faces

Aug 3, 2008
In a span of more or less thirty years, fashion lovers and critics as well have seen the dramatic rise of troll beads and the rich stories ranging from children's stories, animals, flowers, folklores, etc. that come along with it.

Sterling silver, glass, expensive stones, gold, etc. - that's just a handful of materials that makes up troll beads jewelry.

And if this is your first time dabbling with this jewelry that the world is going crazy about, a quick glance at the internet will show you which trollbead bracelets or jewelry fit your personality and taste.

It was back in Denmark, 1976 when it this trend was started by Soren Nielson. Nielson created the first trollbead jewelry - a silver one, and used a wax model for it PLUS bored a hole, making it possible to bind similar beads together. Eventually, this first-ever sterling silver trollbead was known as "The Mask".

After four years, thanks to Lisa Aagaard's efforts, she started exploring all the possibilities on how to create trollbead jewelry using various materials. This resulted to the first glass trollbeads which captured the interest of the world in an instant in 2002.

With the technology advancing REALLY fast, it could only mean that trollbead jewelries of different shapes, sizes, colors etc. that fit different occasions and personalities will be out REALLY soon.

Not to mention these beads can be turned into bracelet, anklets, and even necklaces as you deem fit. Or if piecing trollbead jewelries together isn't your cup of tea, you can get complete sets to save time and effort.

Why don't we take a good look at these different trollbeads? This list should come handy when you decide to jump into the bandwagon and be a trollbead jewelry collector.

Trollbead Jewelry 1 - Glass Trollbeads

The first glass trollbeads were actually crafted in the 1980's by Lise Aagaard. Unfortunately, due to the difficulty of creating designs in full specifications caused it to be released in the early 90's.

But the good thing is - you can now actually choose from different varieties of trollbeads, each having their own designs and colors. Simply put, you can always have the one that suits your flavor.

Trollbead Jewelry 2 - Gold Trollbeads

Gold trollbeads' designs can be very diverse. They can be animal-like, copied from fairy tale characters, or just abstract shapes. Gold trollbeads blend very well with glass trollbeads to craft your own storyline or theme for the necklace or bracelet.

Trollbead Jewelry 3 - Letter Trollbeads

From the words themselves, you can also make your trollbeads using letters from the alphabet. You can choose from letter trollbeads to create your name or initials, and that's one fun way of customizing your necklace and bracelet.

Trollbead Jewelry 4 - OOAK Trollbeads

These trollbeads are one of a kind since they're made by bare hands and, with that in mind; they're completely different from the rest.

These trollbeads came from those deigns that turned out to be discarded since it turned out to be quite different from what was ordered. BUT that's the exact reason why these beads are highly valued!

Trollbead Jewelry 5 - Retired Trollbeads

You can also call these beads as retired ones because it would only be a matter of time before they're completely out of stock. But still, they are there to give way to new versions.

Trollbead Jewelry 6 - Silver Trollbeads

The silver trollbead started it all in 1976. With lots of years under its belt, many designs, shapes, and sizes have cropped up for the silver trollbeads department. And just like its gold counterpart, many mythical and fairy tale-like characters are added to its storyline and theme.

Trollbead Jewelry 7- Trollbead Bracelets

On the other hand, trollbead bracelets can be availed as beads and chains you MUST bind together OR if you don't want to spend time doing so; you can grab a completed set. The charms you can use only fit on necklaces and bracelets. ON the other hand, the chain can come in gold, silver, or leather whichever you prefer.

Trollbead Jewelry 8 - Trollbead Clasps

Trollbead clasps, either in gold or silver, give you the privilege to take them off and rearrange them.

You can have trollbead clasps in animal, flower-pattern BUT going for plain one's aren't bad either.

One thing is for sure, more designs and variations of trollbeads will come out. BUT it will still be the best gift you can give to your loved ones or even as a treat for yourself.
