Anyone who has lost their local retailer recently and is worried about the future of Trollbeads...WORRY NO LONGER! We have been inundated with new collectors and new customers at Trollbeads Gallery and have had conversations with Trollbeads that they are finding similar success. So much so that the worldwide demand for the Mother's Day Rose and the Good Luck Bracelet has been out of stock! As much as Trollbeads International planned and as much as they created they could not keep up with the worldwide demand. If you know me you know I can be like a Mother Lion if my customers can't get what they want so I had my dander up...much to the chagrin of the wonderful people at Trollbeads US. After I was told the situation I was a bit more understanding. Then I sat back and realized what this all means and am so thrilled for Trollbeads that the action continues to the point of being sold out! For those of you who have waited, fear not the beads and bracelets are on their way!
The NEW 2015 Easter Trollbeads will be shipping on this Friday and they are now on Trollbeads Gallery so go take a peek! I was thrilled to see no new Bunnies and happy to see Dragon goodies! How great is the Trollbeads imagination?? A Dragon Egg so darn cute it has scales! To me Trollbeads has always had an element of the fantastical -meaning fantasy, fairy tales and magic all rolled into beads and these new Dragon beads and lock do it for me! I for one will be sporting them as I have a very sweet and meaningful Dragon thing with my grandson Asher. When he was 4 I told him all about a little boy who discovered a Dragon Egg on our beach after a hurricane had blown all the sand out to sea. The story would continue each time I saw him and it still brings a smile to my face. Asher is now 13 so I don't know if he still feels the same way but I will tell you the first Trollbead he ever wanted was the Lucky Dragon and he wore him on a leather necklace! Now you might be wondering how long can a dragon story go on but consider the issue of that child trying to bring a baby dragon home to Colorado on a plane. Asher's eyes got so big at this point I can still see him as he wondered if what I was telling him actually happened. He suggested he could sneak him on board in his back pack. I asked him "what would happen if he sneezed? It could start a fire!" I know I have gone on a little long on our baby dragon but that is what Trollbeads is all about. Creating a collection of beads that keeps your life's little stories as close to your heart as the big ones.
Don't forget you only have until March 19th to get a FREE Trollbeads bracelet when you order a clasp!! Order your clasps here and save $46.00!! We have had outstanding response so please do not miss out on this opportunity!
Last but not least a large image of Asher's Egg! Otherwize known as the Dragon Egg!
And once the egg was hatched....a baby Dinosaur!
Get your pencils out and start designing your "People's Bead"! The contest has begun and the details are below!
As discussed in my last blog the brand new Starter Bracelet "Good Luck" will start shipping March 6th and it proves to be a very popular item! We started offering them on Trollbeads Gallery on February 17th and the sales have been overwhelming! With "Starter Bracelets" Trollbeads likes to offer a complete kit with chain, lock and both a silver bead and a glass bead at an enticing entry level price of $119.00. I think we all know many Trollbeads collectors love Ladybugs (judging from the demand of unique Ladybug beads!!) and one side of the "Good Luck" lock boasts a Ladybug! With a starter bracelet the direction it takes is totally up to you!
If you are a new collector (and we have noticed there are lot of newbies lately) you may be thinking "But I already have a chain and lock." Well I am here to tell you that almost all the collectors I know NEVER stop at one bracelet and having a chain waiting to be filled is like having a box of chocolates waiting to be eaten!! On our very popular forum for collectors, Trollbeads Gallery Forum, many people have upwards of 10 bracelets and climbing so you know they have all taken advantage of the bracelet specials! Speaking of bracelet specials...there is a "Bracelet Special Event" coming up soon!!
On March 12-19 you can receive a free chain (a $46 value) when you purchase a lock of $56 or higher. This is a favorite event of many collectors so get ready to indulge yourself!! See information below!
Another March release that we are already enjoying is the "Party Time" bead. The bead was created to honor Italy and was originally called "Festeggiamo" but in the U.S. it is the Party Time bead. As you can see from our necklace design below it goes so well with many of the glass Trollbeads. It had a harlequin design in blue and the other tones are soft pastel colors with minimal glitter. Created as a limited edition is retails for $34.00.
Another small introduction!! The Trollbeads Easter Release comes on March 20th!!! An Easter Collection that is traditional and mystical all at the same time! There is a fun new Dragon Lock, a new Tassel bead, an Easter Dragon bead and a Dragon Egg bead! When it is closer to release I will write another blog with more details! It's always fun to see the world through the imagination of Trollbeads.
Trollbeads next big special to start thinking about comes in April. Many collectors look forward to this event and it is a great chance to catch up on new releases. From April 10-16 you can purchase 3 beads and get a 4th free! Make your list and get ready!!
PS: News on the "Mother's Day Rose"! We have sold out twice now and TrollbeadsUS was out and had to re-order also but fear not we have them back in stock!! I am intriqued as many people who purchased one have come back to buy more! It is a remarkable bead with deep red by the core and pink petals showing incredible visual depth. I think it is one of those glass Trollbeads you have to see and hold before you realize its beauty.
Happy Trolling for now!!
The 2015 Trollbeads Mother's Day Collection is now available and will start shipping on Friday, February 20th. It has 3 new beads starting off with the stunning "Mother's Rose" a glass bead with delicate roses within the bead. It shows the depth originally seen in the "Ageless Beauty" bead but in a light to medium pink and filled with soft petaled roses. Roses are such a great flower to present on Mother's Day and why not do it with roses that will last forever? The second bead "First Signs Bead" was released earlier as a gold bead but now we have it as a silver bead. The detail in this bead is typical of all most all silver and gold Trollbeads. The third bead in this Mother's Day Trio is the "Mother's Garden" a bead yet also a Fantasy Pendant that can be worn on either the Fantasy Necklaces or a bracelet as a bead fits within the "Mother's Garden". The photo below shows how the "Mother's Garden" can be used on a Trollbeads Fantasy Necklace with the "Mother's Rose" threaded inside the pendant. The look is soft and feminine. The "Mother's Day Trollbeads Release" is always a bit early for Mother's Day in the U.S. but it is celebrated earlier in Europe!
The next release due out from Trollbeads is to be released on March 6th and is The Trollbeads Good Luck Starter Bracelet Kit. Just think of all the people you could give this great kit to! Anyone starting on a new endeavor-a new job, a new baby, a new marriage and most appropriate would be as a graduation gift! At this date the starter bracelet is only available as a kit and includes a Trollbeads bracelet chain, a lavender glassflower bead, a silver bead and a GREAT new lock that has a Ladybug and a leaf on one site and flowers on the other!The details are indicative of all the designs we have enjoyed from Trollbeads for over 36 years. Just look at the great designs below.
Because the silver bead and the lock both have intricate details I have provided more images to show the details!!
You have to admit that 2015 is off to an awesome start! It is only February as I write this and think of all the beads we have been blessed with in 2015! The Valentine's Day Release, the "Trollbeads by X" Valentine's Release, the Polished Fantasy Necklaces, the 2015 Spring New Horizons Collection and the Mother's Day Release , the Good Luck Starter Bracelet Kit and this isn't even mentioning all the great new Unique Trollbeads we have seen since the beginning of 2015! Swans, Musical Notes and so many more!
2015 also happens to be my 10th Year selling and collecting Trollbeads and I have to admit it has been a wild and wonderful decade!! More to follow!
As Valentine's Day quickly approaches I am showing you some of the beautiful beads Trollbeads released for 2015! I have had them on my site but if you are a blog reader and not a site hunter than this is for you! This year we have included all the heart and love related beads in one category so shopping or hunting is easier! Heart beads are not just for February 14th! Surround yourself with love all year! We have even included Unique Heart Beads!! Please check out the category here:
The "X by Trollbeads" Valentine Collection consists of 3 new links. The hot Pink Rubber link has been outselling the two other colors of blue and red but the black is still the favorite! The heart on the left is Rough Romance and on the right Blown Away . As you can see from the finished bracelet the result is rich, contemporary and fun! Now who doesn't need more fun in their life in Winter!
The news about the Polished Fantasy Necklace is great! Due to popular demand we are now offering the Polished Fantasy Necklace in 35" alone so besides the 3 specials we have right now, all offered with a Fantasy Pendant and a bead, you can purchase the
I have been busy familiarizing myself with the releases that are due out for Mother's Day and for Easter along with a "Good Luck" starter bracelet and will soon be writing a Trollbeads Gallery Blog about them! In the meantime start your shopping list for our "Buy 3 Get 1 Free" special coming up on April 10-16. I am very excitng about the year a head for Trollbeads and Trollbeads collectors around the world.
If you haven't yet joined our Trollbeads Gallery Forum - do so now!! A great group of Trollbeads enthusiasts sharing their Trollbeads photos and stories from all around the globe. We would love you to join if you haven't yet and if you have please tell your Trollbeads friends about it! There are now over 28,000 photos there to inspire your love of Trollbeads!
This new release is a very exciting addition to the Trollbeads line! I have so many favorites I don't know where to focus! But just look as the new Fantasy Pendant Jewel of the Sea above! It is delightful and it isn't the only new Fantasy Pendant!
An exciting new group of stone beads have been introduced and these are the Hematite beads. There are four colors available and they have a very unique shimmer that will add a whole new dimension to your Trollbeads bracelets and necklaces. Prices as the same as Glass 1 beads at $34.00 each. Available in Yellow. Blue, Green and Red (shown in order below). They are all colors that will work well with so many other Trollbeads. The Yellow has a golden glow to it!
There are so many new silver Trollbeads you just have to go look at all of them. This release introduces a whole new shape to a silver bead and that is the new conical beads which are wider at each end. There are 3 new beads in this style. They are great when used on a Fantasy Necklace too!
There is a total of 10 new glass beads in two new kits. The Aqua Kit and The Delicate Kit.
Both are shown below. There is one older bead included in each group, the Turquoise Ribbon and the Rose Ribbon. Remember if you purchase a kit you will receive one free bead!
The Spring Collection introduces new ring designs. Our favorite is the new Aurora Ring. So many collectors love all the Aurora based Trollbeads so having a ring to wear with this great look will make many happy! The glass has the same inner light that you find in the Aurora beads. The glass stone is large and beautiful!!
There are also two new Pearl Rings that have the same mounting as the Aurora Ring above. A White Pearl Ring and a Light Grey Pearl Ring has also been introduced. The 4th new ring is a nice thin silver band with a gold knot that floats around the band. The Remember Me is very easy to wear. When I first saw it I thought the gold would be stationary but it is not! It is a perfect ring to stack with others and so many people love the silver and gold combination. The photo below shows all the rings together.
So take a look for yourself and treat yourself to some new Trollbeads to "rush" Spring along! I know when I look at the new Aqua beads I think of Spring! We are shipping now so jump on it! 2015 Spring Trollbeads Collection.
Greetings and Happy New Year from Trollbeads Gallery!

There are 3 hook styles available with the least expensive-all Sterling Hooks starting at $25.00 so with the 25% discount they will only be $18.75! How can you resist this incredible price! The silver hooks are a nice strong weight and have a shiny silver ball. The 2nd choice is the silver hooks with a shiny gold ball and these are the Earring Hooks, Silver/Gold.

The premier pair of Trollbeads Earring hooks is the Earring Hooks, Silver/Brilliant and these have besel set

Our sale items will be listed tomorrow on January 8th so get plotting your course for a great celebration of Trollbeads for 2015!
We have seen many great individual specials offered by Trollbeads this year and to finish off the year they have created a Bangle offer to save collectors $74.00!! It lasts until Decmber 31st. While I have emailed and posted it on Facebook and Twitter I have not posted it here on my blog. I blame this on it being December and I have 2 stores besides my Trollbeads website so I guess I just forgot! If this is the way you get your Trollbeads information please excuse my oversight!
When you purchase a Silver Trollbeads Bangle you will recieve a free Group 1 Glass bead (a valuie of $34.00) and two free Stoppers. The bead plus the Stoppers equal a combined savings of $74.00. If you haven't purchased a bangle yet you have to!! It is so easy to quickly change the beads with whatever you are wearing and go! I am always 3 steps behind (I blame this on being an older retailer) and when I want to wear my bangle I have a bunch of loose beads in a bowl on my bureau and just pull three to match what I am wearing! Tada! A busy person's dream come true. It's so much quicker than remaking a whole bracelet. So if you haven't tried one yet now is your chance!
A FREE Gift with Purchase!
As many of you know I create dangles to be used on a Trollbeads bracelet. They have a very small bale so they don't take up much room on a chain so I never felt it was in conflict with the Trollbeads brand. It actually started because our local Massachusetts collectors wanted something local to add to their chains as our town Mattapoisett is a waterfront summer community so I created sea glass dangles as I make jewelry from sea glass. This broadened and I expanded to make all sorts of dangles and with the demand I had I created a category on Trollbeads Gallery. As Trollbeads US is making an effort to strengthan its brand it was requested we remove the dangles from the site. I am in agreement with the decision so I have offered them as a free gift with a purchase -all in holiday themes. I did this last year and it was a great success and I am doing it now. So there is no longer a category listed on my site but we are offering them as a gift with purchase. Our supplies are getting down there but we are still offering them. When you purchase $150 of Trollbeads you can choose from the three I have made. The value of the dangles are $38.00. I am still making all my dangles but I have not yet decided where to post them so until them just contact me directly if you have a request!
On an interesting note as I was taking down the category on my website I researched what the most popular dangles were and they were the Bee Charm with yellow sea glass and the Dog Bone charm with blue sea glass! It was fun for me to discover that!! Of course the dangles with the dog breeds were popular too and that must be because Trollbeads only has the one dog bead!
We are looking forward to a very large and wonderful collection to come out with the Spring 2015 collection along with the new Valentine beads so stay tuned!!
Everyone at Trollbeads Gallery, Rogers Gallery and Surroundings wish you a Happy Holiday Season and a Healthy New Year!
I made mention of the fact in the last blog that the Black Friday Specials were, for us anyway, a bit confusing and we had to take inventory and make the decisions on what we can offer you. Trollbeads had presented to us a large number of possibilities but many of the included beads we just don't have. The sale begins on November 28 and continues through December 2.
To keep it simple for you we are offering two specials and one of those include both silver, gold and glass beads. All of these beads were determined by Trollbeads. A group of glass beads chosen by Trollbeads will be up to 44% off. The glass beads will be $19.00 and the selected silver beads will be a variety of prices also offering 44% off or thereabouts. Trollbeads Gallery has the category all listed on the site but we can't show you the beads until Thursday, the 28th.Here is the link to the Black Friday Sale Beads. We have limited stock of some of the retired beads listed so choose quickly!
The second special is a great one! You can purchase 3 unique beads and get the 4th free. You will need to put all 4 beads in your cart but then write the code word FREEUNIQUE. The code will deduct $46.00 from your cart and that is your free bead. With this system if you want to buy a second group of 4 you will need to start a new order and use the code again. I have been busy trying to list a lot of unique beads and will continue as long as they are selling and as long as the sale is on!
Unique Trollbeads Christmas Unique Trollbeads
For nine years now Trollbeads Gallery has been offering holiday uniques with a great collection of unique Trollbeads we have saved for the entire year. Our collectors look forward with anticipation for this time very year and this year we have REAL holiday unique beads! For the first time ever Trollbeads has created a variety of unique beads explicitly for the holidays! We have all enjoyed the limited edition kits for the last 5 years but these are actual uniques and they are fabulous! The red holly bead above is just one of them along with the three below so rush on over to our site and see the rest!
We have specials on tap for next weekend including discounts on some retired beads and a few others I am still hearing about so if you are interested in finding out more sign up for our emails (I'll send one when I get the full story) or check on our site where we will have a Black Friday Weekend Special category! It is 5 days long so don't let the word weekend throw you off! Sorry I don't have all the information for you but besides my website, forum and blog to keep up with -I also have two stores and at holiday time you can imagine how busy it can be. Tonight we are hosting a charity benefit at Rogers Gallery for a great local organization called Gifts to Give which helps 30,000+ children living in poverty in SE Massachusetts and when this is over I will dedicate myself to working out which specials we can offer you! I have provided the website for the organization as it is a remarkable place where everyone partakes in charity and in providing educational outreach, clothing, support and it teaches local children how to give of themselves to help other children. As you can see I am committed!!
I know a lot of you have been kind to comment on the loss of my dangles on Trollbeads Gallery. I understand the request of Trollbeads to take them off and I will continue to make them so when I find a way to show and sell them again...I will let you know!
Happy Thanksgiving to you all!!

New Releases in November:
The Ageless Beauty will start shipping on November 7th and although we ordered a huge amount of them we are pre-selling them at a pace I had not even imagined so order yours today! It is a country specific release celebrating the beautiful flowers of Japan.

New Releases for "X by Trollbeads":
The 2014 Holiday "X by Trollbeads" While we already have the NEW 2014 Holiday X items listed the ship date is November 5th. Along with these new releases we have 3 great finished bracelets at a good savings for you. Many people have enjoyed "getting to know" the X line by purchasing a finished bracelet first and then once they get the concept they continue by adding a variety of links and changing out the rubber links with special links of their choice!
This is the new Bronze Red Star Bracelet now available to purchase on Trollbeads Gallery for only $75!! There are some very cool new links including the red rubber link ($2.00 each) and the new Red Asian Cord. The Asian cords work well with the pendant style X links such as Infinity and the brand new Visible Path.
My new favorite link is the Flash of Light! (Above) It reminds me of the Trollbeads Berry beads which always add a great eye catching texture to every bracelet I use it on. The little beads are shiny and just as eye catching as the Berry! Let us know what your favorite new link is!!
