Happy Trollbeads Day! 

IMG_9964Today marks the launch of the much anticipated Trollbeads Day Limited edition Glass Bead for 2015.  There has been much speculation about this bead, even after initial images were released on social media… there are so many colours and such soft, organic patterns in this bead, many collectors wondered if the beads would show large variations from one example to another?  Would the bead that they ordered be as lovely as the photos?

IMG_9969The answer to both questions is a resounding yes!  This is a bead that includes swaths of white, grey, lilac, bird’s egg blue and two shades of green.  The colours blend effortlessly from one to another, making a soft and lovely palette with subtle

IMG_9970differences from one example to another.  In some cases the swirl patterns make nearly geometrically perfect lines, and in others they blur and twist in a fascinating way.  In some examples there is a little more of one colour, and in others a little more of

IMG_9971another.  All of this adds up to a bead where every single one truly is unique… and every single one is *Gorgeous*!  The question this year is not “Did you buy the bead”, but rather… “What kind of bead did you get?”.  Every single one is a treasure.

  1. I hope you had a great day yesterday. My TB day was rather underwhelming – I went to a large mall that I thought had 2 stockists only to find one no longer carries TB at all, and the other had a grand total of 4 TB day beads, initially told me I couldn’t buy them as individual beads but only on a bracelet or bangle, and then grumbled at having to put wrapping paper and ribbon around my bead box! Still, the bead itself is lovely.
    Incidentally, I have just bought a lilac petals on an online trading forum, and hold Tartooful entirely responsible! You keep posting photos like the one above, that make it look irresistible!

  2. Hi Heather, nice to see you in the shop on Saturday – thanks for making the time to come out!

    Sue, I am sorry to hear that you had a less-than-great Troll experience! We would have given you a royal welcome at Tartooful! We were delighted to have a few people join us who had traveled to be here with us, what fun to have out of town visitors. I’m glad to hear that you were able to find one of those elusive Violet Petals… I do find that mine works with practically every thing I have. Funnily enough, we just received a beautiful pair of them in stock, with lots and lots of blue in them. Let me know if you decide that yours needs a friend! Thanks for checking in… xo Cathy
