There is no entry fee, each guest will receive a Trollbeads Fest event gift, plus there will be several special deals to save you money, as well as access to some of the most sought after Trollbeads Uniques!
That brings us to the most exciting part of this event Trollbeads Fest 2017 event bead!!! This year’s event bead is a black opaque with glitter Longevity. Photos do not do this bead justice, it’s truly stunning in person! As most know last year’s event bead was a teal giltter longevity and the aftermarket sky rocketed to five times it’s retail. Glitter longevity have been coveted as long as I can remember and I’m sure this will be no different, so if you would like to have this bead as part of your collection then I would start planning now!
Below you will find several angles of the event bead. These photos were taken indoors in a small studio, I will also be sharing some outdoor photos.
As I said before there will be several special deals at this event. Here is a list of what you will have to look forward to!
- Event Bead – Black Opaque Glitter Longevity.
- Hundreds of uniques including Armadillos, Butterflies and Trollstones!

Here is a little teaser of what will be available! Just a few of the hundred Armadillos that will be available at the event. Oh how, I would love to play in this bowl of goodness! I hear there will be some new fresh designs available, as well.
Of course, on top of all the wonderful beads there will be two bead artisans on site exhibiting their bead making skills on Saturday, October 7th from 10 am until 5 pm, both artist trained by Lise Aagaard.

Also, want to mention that this bead will only be available at the event, however, last year event beads left over after the event were available online, so be sure to follow Trollbeads Gallery on Facebooks for availability updates.
I have put together a combo of mixed Trollbeads including last year and this year’s event beads to give you some ideas of size and color. Black with Glitter have always been sought after and hard to find, so I know this event bead will be coveted. The following photos were taken outside in natural light.
