They are available with round, faceted and different textures of the surface. Use the beads on bracelets, necklaces, hair jewelry and rings. All glass beads are handmade over an open flame on up to 1000 degrees. There will always be unique variations from bead to bead as they are handmade.
Glass has not surprisingly been surrounded with an air of mysticism ever since it was invented thousands of years ago. There is something magical, even supernatural, about the transparent material that starts out soft and malleable at high temperatures and becomes harder than metal as the temperature falls.
Glassmaking demands precision and timing. When the glass melts, it rolls itself into a ball due to the natural surface tension, which is comparable to the tension that causes a drop of water on a surface to become round. Every color reacts differently, and the designer can exploit this knowledge to create a variety of designs. Most of the glass used in the Trollbeads collection comes from Italy. It is imported from Murano, an island close to Venice in northern Italy. For centuries, high quality glass has been produced here.
The exquisite craftsmanship of Trollbeads’ jewelry is only truly complete when you match the different components that tell your stories in your own personal way. You can mix your glass beads with components in other materials like gold, gemstones, silver or pearl.
