Discover “Trollbeads with a Twist” on Trollbeads Gallery. We have had this category on our site for a few years now and the people who do know about it check it out often and find great beads. We are always listing new beads there. Our Trollbeads with a twist was originally created to showcase for sale Trollbeads that are different from bead to bead. It now includes retired beads as it's so important to see a rare retired bead before you want to invest in it. It is always standard Trollbeads (not the unique Trollbeads)and they are the beads that are always different. There are many beads that have these individual features from Azure Bubbles to Blue Desert not to mention so many others. For our customers it has become a handy way to buy standard Trollbeads with actually seeing them before they buy them! If you haven’t discovered the offerings yet check them out and if any of the beads are sold, fear not as I said I list new beads all the time. It is an exclusive offering on Trollbeads Gallery and a labor of love for me. Trollbeads Gallery With A Twist
As you can see from the photo of the Faceted Stone beads above we also highlight these beads because with the natural stones there can be enormous differences in bead to bead. Sometimes our Golden Quartz can be so light they resemble yellow diamonds and the Aventurine (before they were retired) came in so dark they looked like dark green emeralds. From Left to right above there are Ruby, Retired Aventurine, Golden Quartz and Amazonite. When you look at the category you'll have fun seeing how many I have featured of each. The Amethyst we now have listed is the 51st one we've offered on Trollbeads With a Twist.
Our largest selling bead in the twist category has been the Azure Bubbles and at the time of this writing we have listed 121! The image below is a sample on how much they can differ. It may sound crazy but I look forward to my Azure Bubble deliveries as much as my unique bead deliveries because I love to fine the most unique versions I can to offer on my site.
Another favorite Trollbead we have featured since the beginning is the Grey Wolf. It has been retired and there are not many left but I always loved picking out the beads I would feature in Trollbeads With A Twist. Sometimes the design would actually look like fur and sometimes the design would have finely defined lines like perfect pinstripes. The images below give you an idea of how the Grey Wolf would change from bead to bead.
There are only some Trollbeads that lend themselves to this treatment as there are many that are consistant from bead to bead that I don't include. The more constant designs like White Bubbles, Silver Pink Trace and actually all the trace beads, Peach Bubbles, Black Bubbles and Scarlet Bud (not to name all of them but you get the idea) don't change as much and don't excite me enough to photograph them as I do the others.
One kit of beads that came out a couple of years ago that have proven to change bead to bead is the "Rocky Road Kit". Those beads are very unique yet is subtle ways. The tones are generally plum but can come through blue to neutral and that's when I like to show them but even when the are the standard plum the depth of color can change. Check out the Fossils beads that have all been offered on Trollbeads With A Twist. I adore the details in this Trollbead but until I started photographing them did I come to appreciate the nuances of each bead.
I understand that buying Trollbeads from a photo is still not as good as seeing them in person but when you don't have a local dealer near you this is a good compromise. You are seeing the bead you will get if purchased. Please know that if you want to ever have me photograph a stick of beads so you can choose that way I am more than happy to do it. Just ask! Below is a stick of Pebbles Trollbeads from the Rocky Beach Kit. Remarkable uniqueness in each bead but they are all Pebbles Trollbeads! Now for the fun of it click on the link and see what the stock image is like! We are given these from Trollbeads. Not nearly as organic and lovely as they are in the photo below.
