Top 10 Best Selling Trollbeads January-June 2013

Posted by Louise Rogers on Tue, Aug 27, 2013 @ 20:08 PM

Trollbeads Gallery Bracelet It's always interesting to check in on what the best selling Trollbeads are for any given time.  I just checked and found a list published by Trollbeads on their best selling beads for the first six months of 2013.  Now when you look at the Trollbeads here you need to keep in mind when each bead was released and if the release itself came within the time frame as that can be a reason why the sales are strong.  The list itself contains chains, locks and stoppers but for this list I am editing them out and only listing beads.  For your information the biggest selling lock was the Large Flower Lock and the second biggest selling lock was the Large Fish Lock...which brings me to mention when will Trollbeads be good enough to release another large lock like the other two large locks???  Everyone I know wants a new one and each time I met with Soren I begged him for let's all just keep hoping! Please hear us Trollbeads!

1. Unique Glass Kits: This is no surprise to me!  All of our Unique Trollbeads are listed within this link.  Unique Trollbeads

2. Summer Stone Kits: Having just been released in May this is a surprise to me as this kit only has a month to make it to the second place spot.  US Trollies certainly love our natural stones!  Trollbeads Gallery now includes Summer Stones on our Trollbeads With a Twist category so you can choose your own stones and see what you are getting.  The Summer Stones comprise of 6 different stones (shown below) and each one is very unique.

3.Rocky Beach Kit  This style of glass Trollbeads heralds a huge change of glass beads for Trollbeads.  This kit was designed by an American glass artist Scott Bouwens from the state of Washington.  It's organic feel has such charm and such an artistic flair and each bead when used together gives honor to the bead next to it.  When you buy glass beads in a kit you get 6 beads but you pay for 5 which is a $31.00 savings.

4.Happy Summer Kit  This kit is all Trollbeads and has a great tone running through out. The soft peaches and blues are a great starting point for a whole new bracelet design.  I have seen many different styles designed with these beads from fun summer themes to more art inspired themes.  I'm happy to say we sold a lot of this kit as people enjoy the savings of a bead when they can get it!

5. Big Butterfly  One of my very favorites!  This huge bead is so much fun to wear on a necklace, on a chain or on a bangle!  If you use stoppers you can position it to stay where you want it to.  It's a lot of silver for the price and there are so many ways to use it so I am thrilled it is at the #5 position! Featured below on a leather bracelet.

6. Ruby Rock I have to say that this is a surprise to me.  Every time I get Ruby Rocks in they looked very different and none of them look quite like the photo Trollbeads supplied to us to use on our websites.  We do best selling the Ruby Rock beads on out Trollbeads With A Twist category as our customers know we offer this so they can see what the bead looks like that they are getting.  It is a beautiful bead and the varieties are all lovely but can be huge!

7.Aurora Bangles I am thrilled to say that although TrollbeadsUS and Trollbeads Gallery were all but sold out of this incredible set, we know have just obtained an additional 18 so we are good until those are gone.  This bead is simple awe inspiring and while many of us were not thrilled to only offered it on a Bangle I can say that many bought it and reported back that they would not have tried the Bangle unless it had come with the Aurora Bead so in the end many are happy.  From our Trollbeads Gallery Forum I have seen so many collectors show off their Bangle and their Aurora designs and have enjoyed and been inspired by them.  To see some of them all in one place click on the link below!  Pinterest is a handy site to be able to sort your photos for a particular product. A variety of Aurora Bangles are shown below.

8.Agate Dendritic Like the Ruby Rock this bead comes in many different looks.  If you can't get to a store check out our "Trollbeads With A Twist" category because we feature the Agate Dendritic Trollbeads there.  It's a good stone to have as it adds a lot to any black and white bracelets or necklace designs. Released this Spring. Samples below!

9. Starfish A delightful design just released this Spring designed by Soren Nielsen.  If you don't have one yet and if you love the ocean put this on your list!

10. Mom's Bouquet  Released for Mother's Day, 2013 this is a wonderfully sculptural bead with leaves and flowers.

I hope you've enjoyed the 10 Best seller list!  Let me know what your favorites are!

Top Selling Trollbeads in Price Group 2 Silver

Posted by Louise Rogers on Wed, May 09, 2012 @ 10:05 AM

Greetings!  Here is another article about the the top sellers as of the end of 2011.  It is always interesting to see what we have in our own collections versus the specific list.  I have had many positive responses to the other lists so here is one more!  I have created links so you can see the bead in case you are not familiar with them.

1.Forget Me Not  One of my very favorite flower beads. A must in your collection! Shown below.

2.Three in One  Another favorite as it is a clean bead without too much detail for the right place

3. Snowball  Great for your winter themed Trollbeads bracelet designs.

4. Sparkling Star A winner in summer (July 4th!) or for winter & holiday Trollbeads bracelets.

5.  Crab I love this because my grandsons visit in the summer & love crab hunting.

6. Snow A seasonal favorite like the Snowball bead. Perfect for holiday or snow sport themes.

7. Turtles Many people love turtles and this has been a favorite for years.

8. Hearts, Big Another long time favorite for collectors. Great to incorporate with any style.

9. Rose (11203) A small and very detailed bead and a long time favorite of many!

10.Hugging Bear A new bead for all the bear lovers who like to be reminded of their youth.

When looking this best selling Trollbeads list keep in mind that it was based on the final quarter if 2011 and that is the quarter where you will find the winter seasonal beads like "Snow" and "Snowball" selling well.  I think you will find these beads not to be in the first quarter 2012 best sellers.  It is always a good idea to keep in mind what time frame it covers when you are looking at it.

Shown below is "Hugging Bear", "Forget me Not" and "Sparkling Star".

Top Selling Trollbeads in Silver Group 1

Posted by Louise Rogers on Fri, Apr 13, 2012 @ 10:04 AM

Trollbeads Galllery Fantasy

This blog article is number two in a series to share with you the top ten selling Trollbeads as calculated in the last quarter of 2011.  This next group is the silver beads in the bottom tier price level which is $28.00. These are smaller beads great to use on small scale bracelets, at the top of a Fantasy Necklace (as shown above) and at the end of bracelets to finish them off with small bead.


I am quite surprised by the some of these beads being in the top 10.  Why?  Because beads like the Lotus, the Faith,Hope and Charity, the Hydrangea, and the letter beads have all been in the line for years and this shows that there are many, many new collectors and they are the ones buying the older beads to catch their collections up.  In the U.S. with the phenomenal outreach with press, publicity and advertising more and more people are discovering Trollbeads and it is growing.  Another reason some of the smaller beads we see here are in the top ten is because it is the 4th Quarter of 2011 and during the Christmas season you will often see Trollbeads being purchased for friends and it is more of a "gift giving" price range for many people.

I am thrilled at the amount of people I heard from after I listed the best selling Glass 1 beads in the article prior to this and how fascinated people are to see what beads others are buying. I think it actually opened people's eyes to beads they had never considered before.  Please let us know if this is something that you have found also.

1.Faith, Hope and Charity

2.Lucky Knot

3.Hugging Heart

4.Lotus   (on Fantasy Necklace above)


6.Letter A

7.Falling Leaves  (on end of bracelet, below)

8.Letter M

9.High Heel

10.Happy Fish

Top 12 Best Selling Trollbeads on Trollbeads Gallery Jan-Feb

Posted by Louise Rogers on Mon, Feb 20, 2012 @ 09:02 AM

Trollbeads Gallery Doring 2012 beads

I am always interested in seeing our websites sales statistics as far as the product numbers and in discovering what are the best sellers.  Specifically this past month because of the large release of new beads and with the retirement of so many older Trollbeads.  Each month I see stoppers and bracelets as one and two so we will skip right past that and move on to the beads.  The Mixed Armadillo, a new bead, does not surprise me as being the number 1 seller.  The green is rich and the shadings are quite beautiful and as in many glass Trollbeads there is a lot of variants from bead to bead.  The Cream Armadillo at 2 doesn't surprise me either because it's neutral and easy to use and of course everyone loves armadillos!  This bead doesn't have any variants or none that I can notice.  Number 3 is Opposites and I adore all the new barrel beads and I am thrilled the size and the resulting price has not prohibited some from getting this bead. The Coffee Cup is the 4th biggest selling of the new beads and there's no surprise there!  Who doesn't like a great cup of coffee?? Mountain Flower is a sweet Group 1 silver with a double flower. Black Squirrel coming in number 6 just goes to show you how much people will miss this bead, it is one of many leaving the collection.  Tea Cup is a great one and like Coffee Cup the price is the lowest silver price and haing a cup of tea is symbolic for taking time out to enjoy the simple things. The Valentine Bead is always a best seller in February and as a gift it's large size and beautiful framework makes it a stunning Valentine's gift. Like Black Squirrel the Red Feather has also been retired and people were busy scooping it up for their collection but maybe also for their Valentine's Bracelet.  With the retirement of this bead and "China Red" we see two less red glass beads in the line. Flying Geese, another barrel bead, is 11th and White paper fold is 12, another neutral bead. 

If you haven't had the time to see the new beads just click on the bead below and it will take you to that bead!
