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!

The Trollbeads Summer Stones are Hot!

Posted by Louise Rogers on Tue, Jun 04, 2013 @ 16:06 PM

Summer stones bangle           Trollbeads Limited Edition Summer Stones

The Trollbeads Summer Stones are now out and these beads have been selling like the proverbial hotcakes!  The Trollbeads stones have always been popular with certain collectors and now with this limited edition release many collectors who missed out on the European release a couple of years ago are able to buy and buy at a lower cost.   At $31.00 a bead these have been very well received.   People love the uniqueness of each bead and love the saturation of true stone color that highlights these beads.   The release has been so popular Trollbeads US has run out of their initial allotment and are receiving new batches from Trollbeads Denmark daily just to keep up! 

The Summer Stones have been released in Kit form to retailers around the globe and most retailers are cutting the kits offering the buyer their choice of stone.  So far at Trollbeads Gallery we have sold more Amethyst beads but as time goes on we will see how the stones far on the whole.   The kit includes 6 stone beads including African Amethyst, Dalmatian Jasper, Canadian Jade, Red Mud Jasper, Rhyolite and Zebra Jasper.   From what I can see so far the bead with the most variation is the Rhyolite but the Red Mud Jasper too has varying shades of red, brown and orange.

African Amethyst: In the world of art Purple has always been the color of inspiration and individuality.  As a stone Amethyst helps us understand that the limitations we place on ourselves are the hardest ones to overcome and the hardest to live beyond in order to mature and grow.  Trollbeads has always offered a great variety of purple glass beads so there will always be beads to use this with. If you have the faceted Trollbeads Amethyst this stone will go with it beautifully as stones that are smooth versus the stones that are smooth each highlight the stone in unique ways.  On a Trollbeads Bangle bracelet I can see having a faceted Amethyst bead in the middle with a smooth African Amethyst on either side.

Dalmatian Jasper: For a patterned bead this is the most consistent of the beads.  It features light brown or darker beige and like the dog that shares its name – it is a symbol of loyalty.   Dalmatian Jasper is a grounding stone, bringing to its wearer a sense of calm and tranquility.

Canadian Jade:  What a beautiful Jade this is.  We have seen a variety of Jade come through Trollbeads but this Canadian Jade is so pure in color.  Jade is said to bring mental agility (I am planning on filling a 32” necklace with them and see if it works) and to have a balancing and harmonizing effect. 

Red Mud Jasper: What a unique bead this one is!  Much loved for the warmth and colors of the Trollbeads ambers and I have found the longer the collector has been buying the more they like this stone.  It is a stone of protection, stability and strength.  It is supposed to balance emotions (but what fun would life be if it actually did this?) and increases your connection with the earth.  It is said to bring positive energy and joy into your life.

Rhyolite:  Now this is my personal favorite!  But I am a big fan of green.  Rhyolite is a stone that helps us live in the moment instead of the past.  It is capable of improving our ability to deal calmly with challenging circumstances and it helps make us aware of our own strength.

Zebra Jasper: Although we have the faceted version this is a much more affordable bead and if you are lucky enough to have the faceted version these will look great with it.  The pattern on the Zebra Jasper, like the other jasper stones, is very organic and every bead is a special unique.   

On our Trollbeads Gallery Forum there have been some very inspiring uses of the new Summer Stones so if you haven't yet discovered the forum please join us and see what other collectors are doing with their Summer Stones.  It's fascinating and fun! Trollbeads Gallery Forum  (click on link)
