Sapphire Night: A Sparkling New Year


photo 1What a spectacular year 2014 has been for collectors of Trollbeads…

The golden shimmer of the Spring Collection quickly became must-haves, gracing nearly every bracelet we create.  It’s hard to imagine how we got by without designs like “Scirocco”, “Magical Lamp” and “Ancient Palace”!

Next we were charmed by the delicate hues of Trollbeads’ emeralds.  These subtle beauties are just the right shade of green to enhance all our favorite beach glass compositions, and the pretty cherry blossoms that accompanied them were a gorgeous addition to our Spring Trollbeads wardrobe.


Over the Summer we loved to play with the new pendants for our necklaces, and adored the Limited editions that raced through the shop as quickly as the warm months… we were particularly drawn to the inky blues of the “Coolness” series, and it has proven to be most useful as the cooler months set in.  For Autumn Trollbeads gave us a very strong collection with rich colour and pattern, as well as fascinating motifs that were inspired by the aesthetics of Eastern Mysticism.  Classic silvers such as “Ganesha”, the stunning “Large Lotus”, and the humble but oh-so-useful “Lotus Top” are among our newest favorites.  I particularly love the pair of silvers shown above:  “Spiritual Adornment” and “Spiritual Ornament” display the art of the Trollbeads designers and silversmiths.

Finally, for Christmas Trollbeads treated us to a host of new designs, including a new “Bow Lock”, some prettily romantic hearts, dramatic drop earrings, two limited edition kits of Christmas glass and of course – delicious gold!

All those lovely treats through the year…  and I haven’t even mentioned the incredible array of unique glass designs that amazed and delighted us throughout the year.  This truly has been the “year of the unique”, with phenomenal diversity and quality of unique glass designs.  We simply can’t wait to see the new Spring series for 2015, as it promises to be simply beautiful.

Thank you to everyone who helped to make 2014 an inspiring, beautiful and fun year at Tartooful… we wish you the loveliest of New Years, filled with love, health and joy.
