Trollbeads is a Danish company that began in 1976. They claim to be the first charm bead brand, and are a little harder to find than their competitors, being sold mostly through independent jewellers (although many of these sell online in the UK). I like the stories behind the beads, and the variety of different styles available in the glass and the silver beads. I also find the more natural, slightly alternative look and feel of the bracelets and beads appealing; Pandora and Chamilia can look a little too uniform and 'done' for my taste.
My beads are (pictured above from left to right) Silver Mountain, White Snake, Pale Green Jade, Brew of the Moor and Milky Way. I've added few other beads since this picture was taken, and I will post an updated picture soon.
Locks are sold separately and can be swapped between bracelets and necklaces; I bought the Swan lock, which is beautiful but a bit of a pain to fasten if trying to fasten myself.
