As you can gather from the photo above we definitely got into the swing of things on Trollbeads Day 2015. From left to right there is me, Louise, Penni (our brilliant shipping manager) and collector Liz Palmer on Trollbeads Day at Rogers Gallery. We served up muffins and sandwiches and many, many Trollbeads! The Troll ears were a big hit and we are saving the pairs we have for Trollbeads Fest 2015, October 2nd and 3rd. Save the date!
The introduction of the Trollbeads Day Bead was wonderful as everyone who saw it bought it! What a glorious bead. It's brilliant of Lise Aagaard to design a bead that is so alike yet so unique to each bead because it makes you want more than one! You can see what I am referring to by the photo above! By the end of the day we were close to having sold out our first order if dozens and by the end of Sunday, which was the first day we sold it on Trollbeads Gallery, we were sold out. Trollbeads were very quick in sending us the next order so by Tuesday we were fully stocked. We have made a few bracelets trying different effects and below is one I made using the Seabed Bead, Whirling Adventure, White Petals and other white beads.
The link to the 2015 Trollbeads Day Bead also includes the 2014 Trollbeads Day bead because if you want your collection complete you will want it as well. It is a silver bead and we don't have a lot left but I wanted to include it to let all new collectors to know about it. Read the description because it really reflects the Trollbeads designs of the earlier years where the 2015 Bead celebrates the present designs.
There are many ways to use the "The 2015 Trollbeads Day Bead" and if you have joined our Trollbeads Gallery Forum no doubt you have seen what other Trollbeads collectors have done with it with the beads from their bead box. It is fun to see the creativity. A favorite one of mine is on a bangle where the collector used two of her retired Lilac Pearls! If you haven't joined the Forum please do-there is so many inspiring ideas and great people with the like minded passion of Trollbeads. I created the Forum 5 years ago this Spring and at this point we have 4800 members from around the globe and they shared 29,600 Trollbeads photos! I had decided to create a place where Trollbeads fans could meet and share their passion and that has happened over and over again. Lifetime friendships have been formed and as the creator I am so thrilled to see this all happen. So please visit the Forum if you haven't in a while and join if you aren't already there! There are so many discussions and groups to go through!
Oh, news on Trollbeads Gallery! Our platform has changed and we are sporting a new look with larger photos so you no longer have to click on each bead to see the larger version. I know many people don't like change but this is a change to the better, I promise. We are even more secure...even though I couldn't imagine anything more secure (we don't get to see any of your payment information when you purchase) but we moved on and paid for another upgrade and received an SSL certification. Please visit it and let us know what you think!
Just a reminder on The City Beads!! We have been given the right to sell the City Beads only until June 22nd so if you haven't purchased the ones you want yet...just know you have until then to do so. Link: The City Bead Collection
Well the next chore for me to do on my website is to photograph and list all of my red, white and blue unique Trollbeads for your July 4th celebratory bracelet! As you may know I always save certain colors for certain holidays and this is a big one for Trollbeads Gallery. I will send out an email when I get them finished so stay tuned.
After our successful celebration on Trollbeads Day and after all the orders that came in on-line following it...I want to give you my heartfelt thanks for being loyal customers and loyal Trollies. Thank you so much.
