Trollbeads Glass Beads are extremely beautiful pieces of artwork unto themselves. I collected Pandora, mostly silver and two-tone beads and had a few of their glass beads, but were never really sold on the Pandora glass beads.

From the day I found Trollbeads glass, I was hooked. Each piece is very highly detailed. However, when purchasing Trollbeads glass, you need to be slightly educated with the product to know the difference between their production glass and their unique glass.

Production Glass

Both are beautiful, but production glass is what is considered mass produced and do not vary much. Meaning that production glass is pretty much the same from one glass bead to the next. So one production bead is pretty much the same or identical to the next. Production glass is beautiful as seen in the picture below, but just understand that just as you can buy a piece of production glass and wear it, so can someone else. So there is truly no diversity is, but in the same right they are still pretty and as long as you know and understand this you should be fine.

Unique Glass

Unique glass is not mass produced and if you were to purchase a unique glass bead, if someone else found another unique glass bead that resembled that original one it still would not be the same or identical to the original unique bead purchased. Simply put, unique glass is just that unique and no too pieces are the same. So if you purchase and wear a unique glass bead, it is yours and no one else can buy or wear that same unique glass bead, because it does not exist.

What have you learned??

All Trollbeads glass are again exquisite in their own right, but still a little education goes a long way. I own both production glass beads and unique glass beads, but by far the uniques will blow most production beads right out of the water. Now go back to the original photo and see if you can find the production glass Trollbeads that are among all the unique glass Trollbeads. If you can find them, then I am proud to say you have learned the difference between production glass Trollbeads and unique glass Trollbeads. Congratulations!!!

      Thank you DeborahNevens for your comment. I absolutely love these beads and they really are so pretty the pictures don't even do them justice. The colors and patterns when you feel and touch them in person are out of this world!

      These are just beautiful. I hadn't heard of these beads before but I have always wanted to find blue and pink vintage beads. Now I think I know where to find some. The closest thing I have seen to these beads are the One Bead at a Time. Pinning and sharing!

      Tammyswallow! So glad you enjoyed my article and these beads again are just gorgeous. If you at e looking for a local place that sells Teollbeads, go to: http://www.forlocations.com/trollbeads. If you type in your location, you should be able to find a dealer near you that you can actually go see the beads and touch and feel them. These beads vary so ordering them is ok, but if you can my suggestion is to go see them at your local store if possible. Enjoy and let me know if you need any help finding Trollbeads. I know dealers online that sell and private people selling pre-owned too. Happy trolling!

      Lovedoctor926, the glass does resemble the Pandora glass, but is even more detailed if you can imagine that. When you see the two side by side and in person you can totally see that. Thank you for comments and all your support. It is totally appreciated.

      You surely do troll beads justice. I think you would make an excellent spokesperson for the product and company. Have you ever sent them one of your hubs? If not, what are you waiting for!:)

      Thank you so much Linda for saying that. I honestly never even thought about sending them one of my articles and wonder now how I would go about doing that. Seriously, thank you so much for your compliment here and for your constant support too :)

      Janine most likely the company has a "contact us" on their website or there could be a forum for fellow fans and the big wigs could spot your articles that way. Keep me posted!:)
