Start your story with Trollbeads


Have you ever heard about Trollbeads before? Trollbeads is a  jewellery line (just like Pandora and Thomas Sabo.. but much more "senior" than those two) which was established in the year 1976 in Copenhagen, Denmark.  It was sparked by Soren 'Silversmith' Nielsen when he created the first Trollbeads, which portrays faces and figures. The name 'Trollbeads itself refers to the faces or figures that Soren Nielsen has crafted upon.  Later on his craftsmanship is inspired by mythology, trolls, stories, flora fauna and cultural diversity. Afterwards Soren's sister, Lise Aagaard jumped in to the line and have put together the beads with silver bracelets which initially was beads with leather cord necklace. She became the founder of Trollbeads, and went on to open a jewellery shop. Then, Trollbeads was created in collaboration with the customers when the customers developed the concept of putting several beads on the bracelets.
first bead made by Soren. Looks a little bit scary wasn't it lol

This jewellery line crafts authentic and aesthetic jewelleries ranging from the beads or charms itself, bracelets, necklace, rings and earrings. Quoted from its official website, "Every story has a bead" implies that each beads has its own representation of memories and even personality. Furthermore, Trollbeads let their customers to build on their own story by adding the beads the way they wanted. It is the customers fascination on collecting beads, bracelets and so forth that keeps on fuelling Trollbeads's enthusiasm in jewel making. 
As I was sooooo curious to know, I had made some research on the differences between Trollbeads, Pandora and Thomas Sabo. So, here's what i get: 

Pandora beads fit in Trollbeads chains but not the other way round. Some Trollbeads does fit in Pandora's chain. There's a collection named as Universal Uniques which are designed with large opening so it fits major number of brands such as Pandora and Chamilia.

Trollbeads comes along with the original concept which seems much more traditional and rustic compared to Pandora and Thomas Sabo as they seems to be more towards a modernized approach. Pandora and Thomas Sabo designs are nice and attractive but Trollbeads is a masterpiece, the design looks more handcrafted compared to the others. 

Trollbeads offers different kind of bracelets, necklace, rings, earrings, tiaras, sterling silvers, jewelry and others too.(You can check them out herePandora known for its charms bracelet and Thomas Sabo for its sterling silver and charms.
