I have a unique perspective from a Trollbeads collectors point of view and this has helped me understand something. Not only am I a Troll collector, I have a Trollbeads store , I am a seller of Retired Trollbeads, a Trollbeads Gallery Forum moderator and manager, a Trollbeads website manager and that's just the tipof the iceberg.
My perspective is one of experience, research and personal friendships to the largest and most enthusiastic collectors of Trollbeads around the world. Some of these personal collections rival the inventories of many authorized Trollbeads stores. But these collections aren't created by greed or by the "have to have more than so and so" thoughts, they are created by a depth of passion that goes way beyond many of the "collectables" of recent decades. Compare it to other subsequent beads lines, all of todays bead line are subsequent to Trollbeads so pick any of them and make a comparison. There is none. No other line has the depth of colors and materials Trollbeads has not do the silver and gold beads have the fine artistic quality to them. There just isn't another bead that can muster this much passion and when one starts collecting them they just can't and won't stop. There are over 500 beads in todays offerings but that doesn't even begin to describe the color families of glass or the color families of jade, pearls, aventurines, you name it. The best part of this unparalleled selection is that collectors join in the creative process and design bracelets, many of them, based on themes,color ways, personal meanings and eras of the beads themselves. When there is 35 years of Trollbead history, there are plenty of eras from which to create and to draw from for the many ideas you may have.
When working on your Ocean or water themed Troll bracelets make sure you visit our Retired Trollbeads Gallery to see the Flounder bead! Hurry before he gets away! Or when you start working on your pale blue themed Trollbeads bracelet check out the Light Blue Stripe.
So don't ever consider your bracelet finished if your chain is full, it is only the beginning of your Trollbeads Journey.
