Announcement   Trollsmeds beadshop -
I make viking beads,glass lampwork beads, ceramic beads, goddesses, and viking jewellry with beads. I make items to help you build your apron necklace, and soon to come: a how to pdf to make the apron pieces.
As the local beadmaker in Njardarheimr, Gudvangen Norway, I also make beads on a clay kiln in Gudvangen. Many of you might have met me there - I will fill this shop with the runes, beads and items found in Njardarheimr, made by me, and they are NOT sold anywhere else. Bindrunes, runes, lampwork beads, hooks and start sets for reenactment.

I very seldom make many copies of finds, I think: What about all the beads that are not found? But its important to me that viking jewellry dont look like barbie or disney.... the necklaces and viking stuff need to look authentic and made from real materials. Now and then I make a full copy set of a museum bead set. Convo me if you want me to make one, or to ask if its possible.

Vikings did not have plastic beads, crystal glass beads - nor nickel casted serial produced jewellry made in China! They swere noe wear9ng uniforms. They collected, one bead at a time. It was their values.

You might find sets with a few commercial beads in the set, as I think vikings traveled and brought home beads... and I enclose my handmade beads. I am sure the foreign beads are good or handmade. Vikings got beads from all over the world, in addition to the ones they made themselves.

All items at my other shops can be moved to Etsy if you want to shop with me!

About

Trollsmed and her beads

I was only 13 when I started to make beads.
My father built a new house, and I used appleseeds and wire from blasting to make necklaces. Later I found that I could use copper wire and wooden beads - and later I travelled by bus 40 kilometres to buy glass beads.

I was educated a silversmith when I was 20. 4 years with filigree work and solje the Norwegian way. Later I was in a goldsmiths repair shop.

For many years I left my beloved beads, but I came back to them in 2004.The Trollsmed, came out, and I did less and less silver.. because of the beads.
so here I am.. making beads.
I love to make big heavy jewellry pieces too.
Follow my blog or facebook to see.

I have been in galleries as an artist for years, and have a lot of webshops, all together to make a living from beads.
Its hard to be a Trollsmed, running around in Norwegian Troll forests, collecting berries and stones, to come home.. always have an idea.. what can i make!
Beads of course. Trollsmedbeads.

All I do, is run by a drift to make funny and beautiful things by hand. I love either materials I use..silver, clay, porcelain, glass..organza... and try to learn how to make evrything work in a proper way.
