The Original Since 1976
The story of the original and unique Trollbeads starts in Denmark. Trollbeads is born as a family company and still today it remains so.
“Some have ideas, some have talent for design, some can find technical solutions and others still have the courage to make it happen. And all of us enjoy working together on a project. It’s that simple",
- Lise Aagaard.
Faces was the very first bead in the collection. It is a silver bead combined with six faces, and it is designed by Lise Aagaard’s brother, Søren "Silversmith" Nielsen.
Trollbeads are made with a blend of new and ancient techniques. Most silver Trollbeads are modelled using the 3000-year-old technique, the so-called 'cire perdu' or 'lost wax'-method.
In 2001, the glass beads became a fascinating and colourful addition to the Trollbeads collection. Traditionally, glass beads have been used by themselves on jewellery. It was therefore an innovative new approach when Trollbeads began to combine the living and colourful glass with gemstone beads, gold and silver.
Another way to carry your beads
In 2003 the Trollbeads collection is extended with the Fantasy Necklace. You can design and combine the Fantasy Necklace in endless ways, using beads and pendants from the collection.
Trollbeads goes abroad
In 2003, Trollbeads adventures start in new countries: Hong Kong, USA and Spain. Today you can find Trollbeads in more than 40 countries all over the world.
Sterling Silver Bracelet
Alongside Tibet Charity, Lise Aagaard developed the Tibet Beads project in 2005 to give unemployed Tibetan refugees in India an opportunity to learn new skills and earn an income.
Amber is added to the collection. 50 million years on the way to your bracelet. It is almost incomprehensible how long ago that is, but that specific moment in time is what we see.
