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”, says Lise Aagaard.
The first silver bead
Faces was the very first bead in the collection. It is a silver bead combined of 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.
Gold enters the collection
For thousands of years gold has been the ultimate symbol of power, wealth and divinity. Trollbeads are made in 18K gold – the perfect balance of purity and strength.
The Sterling silver bracelet
The Sterling silver bracelet as we know it today was designed in 2005. Before 2005 you had to use tools to add new beads, With the new design and changeable locks it was made possible to design and redesign your bracelet every day!
The first Uniques workshop
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.
If you really want to help people in the third world counties to develop economically, you much teach them what it is you are successfully doing.
Uniques are truly special to Trollbeads. it began as a charity project, providing self-sustainable workshops for people in Asia, giving them an opportunity to express themselves and create art. They ended up creating UNIQUES.
