Imagine you could turn back time…
How many times have I heard a collector lament that they wished they had known about Trollbeads sooner? It seems every few days one of our collectors mentions a long retired, rare and desirable bead that they would surely have picked, if only they had known Troll in time…. (sigh…)
Once in a long while one has the chance to be there at the very beginning… in the first days of something new, brilliant and exciting. We have that opportunity with X by Trollbeads.
It’s a completely original approach to modular jewelry, with links that slip together fluidly, yet stay together perfectly securely. The genius is the “x” that is woven deftly into the design of each link in such a way that one wouldn’t even notice it was there. Look closely at the join in the link, and you’ll see that the new X logo shows the heart of the design.
With links of black rubber, warm glowing bronze and classic silver one can create unlimited compositions. The rubber is warm and tactile yet surprisingly smooth and hard. The bronze glows like pink gold, and the silver is crisp and classic against the contrast of the black. What’s your mood today? Edgy urban? Classic Scandanavian? Ultra luxe? Pure modernist? Or perhaps you have a look all of your own.
However, you can count on Trollbeads to create not only the perfectly simple, but also the exquisitely detailed. Elements of nature, symbols and characters abound in the collection. Add a well chosen few of these storytelling designs to create a piece that resonates deeply with satisfying beauty and meaning.
This bracelet tells a love story…
There is the occasional hint at a Trollbeads design… such as the new “Flower”, which is reminiscent of the silver star of the Spring 2013 Trollbeads collection, “The Messenger”. This familiar face is sure to become a new favorite for our collectors, as its clear floral motif is so strong and lovely it could anchor an entire design.
I’ve always liked the silver Trollbeads that have a nubbly consistency – “Large Berry”, “Sun Circle”, “Planet”, “Urchin” and the like… so it makes sense that right away I am drawn to these two links… These are Single and Double Snow, which can together create a lovely textured pattern around a bracelet or necklace design.
