Blooming Boutique in Lewes is hosting the first annual TROLLBEADS AT THE BEACH, A Mid-Atlantic Festival in Lewes, Delaware on October 11th-13th. Blooming Boutique, owned by Micha Seto, is the largest Trollbeads dealer in the state of Delaware.

Trollbeads is an innovative jewelry concept that tells unique stories through interchangeable, artisan-quality beads. By combining individual Trollbeads on a bracelet or necklace, the wearer can design a meaningful, one-of-a-kind jewelry piece that represents a narrative of their accomplishments, life experiences, and passion. Trollbeads is the original, and first, bead on jewelry company that started in 1976.

The three day event will be held at various locations in historic downtown Lewes. American Trollbeads glass artisans - Scott Bouwens and Gail Moore will be there demonstrating how Trollbeads are made! The designer event will include an in depth product knowledge and training course, ideas and sharing on jewelry design and Q&A. Special guests participating include Michael Belleveau, Trollbeads US CEO; and Kim Walhberg, our Trollbeads Representative, who has been with Trollbeads Unites States since they arrived into the US in 2005. Plus, the star of the event – Trollbeads, including a special shipment from Denmark of Unique beads.  For those new to Trollbeads, the term Unique beads means it is truly unique, you will not see it in any of the catalog available for sale, plus many new items just launched this fall.

ABOUT TROLLBEADS

Since 1976, when the first Trollbead was born in Denmark, the Nielsen/Aagaard family and their team of designers continue to "charm" collectors with their imaginative jewelry designs. Each bead has its own story inspired by love, nature, fairytales, mythology, cultures, and the diversity of the world around us. Every Trollbead is crafted by skilled artisans using labor-intensive techniques such as wax casting, gem setting, and glass making.

Trollbeads are crafted from the finest raw materials. Trollbeads jewelry is made from 18-carat gold, sterling silver, Italian glass, freshwater pearls and precious stones.   It is created using a blend of traditional and modern techniques employed by global artisans. Each glass bead is handmade using the art of lamp work.  No two Trollbeads are ever completely alike! These miniature bead sculptures are lasting treasures and retail starting from $28 each. There are over 500 interchangeable Trollbeads from which to choose. New beads in intriguing shapes and colors continue to revitalize the collection. Trollbeads are also retired on an annual basis and hard-to-find bead designs that are no longer in production often become coveted collector's items. With an infinite number of Trollbead combinations, the piece of jewelry you design will be unique and completely personal. The possibilities are endless and your story can continue to grow and evolve with the addition of each new bead.

 

Micha and her gang at Blooming Boutique can show you how to get started with Trollbeads by creating a bracelet that fits your style, memories and personality.  Let your Trollbeads tell most meaningful stories of your life or just express your mood.
