TROLL BEADS - A LEGEND OF CRAFTMANSHIP AND QUALITY
Swish Silver Jewellery Shop, Somerset Mall, Cape Town
In 1976 in a cellar in Denmark, a young silversmith, Søren Nielsen, created a small silver orb with delicate faces sculpted onto it.
When he drilled a hole through his creation, the very first Trollbead, ‘the Mask’, was born.
At first, Trollbeads could only be found in a tiny jewelers shop in Copenhagen, until they caught the eyes of customers and requests for new creations in different symbols and shapes flooded in. The legacy of Trollbeads had begun.
On a holiday trip to Austria, Bev Schoeman discovered this exquisitely designed Northern European jewellery phenomenon. She was so enamoured with the quality and originality of craftsmanship, and the mythology behind Trollbeads, that she found a way to bring this Scandinavian treasure back to South Africa with her. Now you can share in the beauty and power of these unique creations.
WEAVE YOUR OWN MAGIC
Trollbeads are a collection of over 400 beautifully crafted sterling silver, glass, 14ct and 18ct beads combined with natural pearls and precious stones. Each bead has its own tale, taking inspiration from mythology, astrology, fairy tales, cultural diversity, and everyday familiar symbols.
Trollbeads stimulate the senses, providing opportunities for the imagination that knows no boundaries.
BE A PART OF AN EXCLUSIVE GLOBAL SOCIETY
Twenty independent designers are dedicated to finding new materials, designs and messages to uphold the Trollbead legacy and vary the collection. Two new collections are released each year, with a surprise collection being released at random.
Today, Trollbeads are found internationally, in more than 40 countries from the United States to Holland and Japan. Though they’ve come a far way from Søren Nielsen’s cellar workshop, what hasn’t changed is the exquisite craftsmanship, detail and quality that goes into the creation of each handmade bead, making Trollbeads a magical storytelling journey for collectors and wearers around the world.
