Announcement   Trollsmeds beadshop -
I make lots of viking beads, and I go to viking markets in Norway. I dont make many copies of finds, I am a Norwegian, and think: What about all the beads that are nor found? But its important to me that viking jewellry dont look like barbie or disney.. the stuff need to look authentic and be made from real materials. Vikings did not have a sewing machine nor nickel casted jewellry...
You might find sets with commercial beads and handmade beads. This is because 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!

Absolutely exquisite handmade bead by a real craftsperson. It is perfectly detailed and modern though echoing back to goddesses through history. A very special piece to be treasured, thankyou. Arrived on time superbly packaged.

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.

Shipping
I ship by Norwegian post system. It will take a few days more than normal if you are not a Norwegian, but our postal system is very reliable.

ABOUT SHIPPING:
Norwegian shipping is high, so look for my mixed packets for shipping saving!
But if you shop at least 5 items, DO NOT PAY, convo me first, I need to weight them and calculate each packet to get the most affordable weight in a packet, and make you a listing of your own. I cannot go down on price, because I earn nothing on shipping, and I cannot give away my work.
