Trollbeads News: Our Troll Heroes Are….


We just completed our second annual 30 Day Trollbeads Challenge… and were delighted by the high level of participation and talent among our ladies!  You girls are amazing.


You may recall that at the beginning of the challenge we promised prizes… well, after seeing all your incredible designs and witnessing all the love given on the facebook page, we now have a fresh crop of Troll heroes that we would like to honour with Troll Treats.


CG-day13First, we’d like to thank all of you who send in images to share with our readers.  Every single bracelet, bangle and necklace added up to an amazing event and we couldn’t have done it without you.  However, we would like to recognize Brigitt and Rebecca for

BJ-day18Finally, in very real terms, the Winning Design of the 30 day challenge was chosen by all of you.  The bracelet posted by Lisa C shown above garnered five comments and a whopping twenty likes.  This added up to more approval than any other single composition

  1. Thank you Cathy for the bead prize! I will cherish it because it came from you and it will always remind me of this years Challenge. It was truly a pleasure to participate and to see the beautiful and creative bracelet compositions that the Tartooful Trollies came up with!

  2. What a lovely and generous surprise! Thank you so much for the prize bead, but also for hosting the design challenge. I learned so much, experimented, was inspired by the wonderful designs that you and others created (many have been saved for future reference), and have some new bracelet combos that I love. I really appreciate your dedication to Troll and the sense of fun and experimentation that you inspire.

  3. Sorry I am a little late with my “thank yous”. For everyone who selected the like button for my bracelet I am truely grateful. For health reasons I was not able to keep up with the competition in it’s entirety but I sure enjoyed the challenge and all the amazing creations. To Cathy a big thank you my bead prize is already at play.
