The combination of original creativity, good business sense and a love for quirkiness is what sets Trollbeads apart from competitors. It is these key factors that have made Lise Aagaard Copenhagen an international, professional and modern business, producing millions of beads and catering to customers in over 50 countries.

Designed by silversmith Søren Nielsen in 1976, the very frst Trollbeads were quirky silver charms with a hole through the middle that could be strung on a piece of leather.

Trollbeads jewelry is made from eighteen-carat gold, sterling silver, glass, pearls and precious stones, and is created from a blend of traditional and modern techniques. The gold and silver Trollbeads are modeled using the so called 'cire perdu' or 'lost wax' method. This 3,000 year old technique allows for fine details to be reproduced from wax to precious metals. While every Trollbeads glass beads are hand made from red-hot glass in the open flame.

As the beads became more and more popular the collection slowly grew and diversifed. Gold and pearl beads were introduced and new locks were designed making it possible for the end user to add or remove beads and experiment with different combinations themselves.

Trollbeads

In 2002 the first glass beads entered the Trollbeads collection and since then demand has grown exponentially.

Today Trollbeads is represented in more than 50 countries worldwide and is still growing - now we're inviting you to explore this world where every bead has a story and every story has a bead.

Trollbeads distributors are as unique as the jewelry. What all our distributors do have in common is a passion for Trollbeads, good business sense, and a sound knowledge of their own market.

Trollbeads distributors are the essential link between the head office in Copenhagen and the end users. Successful distributors can seamlessly blend the Trollbeads' culture and the local culture to find a unique niche for Trollbeads within the marketplace.

We trust that our distributors know their market best, so we offer you the freedom to explore your local marketing and distribution channels based on our global branding strategy & backed by full support from the team at Lise Aagaard Copenhagen.

That is the beauty of Trollbeads - individuality is the key to success.

International Marketing Strategy

In 2010 we launched a new logo and B2C website - The Trollbeads Universe. To emphasize the brand values - diversity, detail, elegance, personality, quality, courage, humour and troll - it is important continuously to work on sharpening our profile.

In spring 2011 we have launched a new global branding concept: "Open up to the world of Trollbeads". Our point of reference is the nature and light of the North complimented by the presence of a beautiful woman in sync with nature. Not only does this symbolize the origin of Trollbeads, it is also acknowledged as a mythological land of trolls, fairies and magical stories. This is our statement.
