Trollbeads Day 2015 Was a Huge Success!

Trollbeads Gallery Penni Lo
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!

Trollbeads Day Bead 6415

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.

A New Improved Trollbeads Shopping Experience For You!

Many of you have already discovered the new Trollbeads Gallery and for those of you who have not yet, let me tell you about it.  The changes are all about making your experience buying Trollbeads as pleasant as owning them! I love it and I hope you do also.  I have spent months building it along with Peter, my trustworthy adviser, thank you Peter!

I have added hundreds of Unique beads of all kinds including Glass,
Amber, Picasso Jasper, Pink/Turquoise Agates and Trollstones.  My favorite new feature is the magnifying ability.  For some it is difficult to see a Unique bead on a website and choosing beads on line has been challenging.  Now when you move your cursor over the bead it becomes magnified to the point of seeing much more of the bead than you would if you held it your hand!
 Another feature which gives a special view of Uniques, is the ability to show you more than one photograph of each bead.   To see this feature at its best look at the Unique Amber Sets.  The details of each 50 million year old particle entrapped in the amber beads become visible!

You can now track your order and its progress from looking up your account. It will update at each of its step from initial order to its shipment.  We also send emails along the way but the ability to follow its progress is giving you more control.

We are now ipad, iphone and mobile device friendly! From the great comments we’re getting I know this has been a strong benefit to many of you. I love that you can check out new beads while riding the bus to work!

The Wish List is a favorite and the site gives you the
chance to decide whether you want your list open to the public so someone (hint,hint) can view the list!  How great is that?

You will now find all of our Retired Trollbeads listed on this site nowin their own category.  I decided to combine both sites and maintain one site for many reasons but the main one being you can now check out just once!  We work very hard to offer you the most comprehensive retired Trollbead collection in the world and plan to continue to do so! We have some very special and very rare retired Trollbeads and where the rare beads don't last long check the category as often as you can.
The “Compare” feature is also new for our site. A “Compare” button is available with each bead and you can click on it to compare your selections before you buy or just compare beads for the sport of it!

As always we will always be adding new Unique beads and new Retired beads and you can track this very easily by checking our Home page.  Eight of the most recently added beads show on the home page but be sure to follow the category as we tend to add more than eight each time.

I welcome any comments and suggestions so please let me know what you think, after all this website is for you.

Other things:

Trollbeads Gallery Forum continues to offer collectors a place to gather for chat time, add inspiring photographs, we are now close to 14,000 photos in total!  If you haven’t yet, please join us on the forum to learn and enjoy your Trollbeads!  The “Groups” have a wide variety of Swaps and State/Country groups to keep up with the activities in your area.  The month of May maked it 2 full years old. Looking back at the friendships formed I can't tell you how thrilled I am.  Forum members all over the world have met each other and it has been so much fun seeing the connections move past to internet stage to "in real person" stage.  The group from Denmark were strangers to each other but have met and have enjoyed a few Trollbeads get togethers.  The U.S. members-forget it I couldn't even begin to mention how many times they have met in real person!

Trollbeads Fest!2011 promises to be even better than last year’s event (can you believe it?) and our planning is well underway.   Our Trollbeads Fest website will soon be up (yeah Peter) and offering the information you will need along with the ticket purchasing option.  Below are images from Trollbeads Fest 2010 to get you excited about 2011!! The photo below is my own personal paparazzi at Trollbeads Fest 2010 and a very happy Kristi Denning showing her winning "Ice Bear" model! Lower shot: Our Penni working hard.
