Trollbeads: What is the Difference between Production Beads and Unique Beads
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.
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 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!!!
