It is fascinating to work with Trollbeads, because Trollbeads is really the essence of what jewelry is all about - jewelry becomes a type of talisman for us and gets a very personal significance for the people who wear it every day. We build a relationship with jewelry from the moment we get it, maybe as a gift from a lover, and expand day by day this relationship and the jewelry's importance to us.
Trollbeads are the perfect supports for these relationships with their various small meanings and universes within themselves. Although we, as designers of Trollbeads, have an idea about them from the outset, we have a clear desire that those who wear them give them a new meaning - that is actually the point. That is what makes all Trollbeads unique.
