Trollbeads: Trollfest 2018 at Trollbeads Gallery!

Today Beadsaholic brings a review of the Trollfest 2018 Event Bead and Event details!

TrollFest is coming up fast on October 5th and 6th, 2018 at Rogers Gallery in Mattapoisett, MA.. If you can make it to this event, then I urge you to do so! Trollfest is one of the longest running annual events and always have a huge assortment of hard to find beads available to their attendees. The last two events Trollbeads Gallery has offered a beautiful Longevity as their event bead, first year a teal longevity, last year a black longevity and this year will be a stunning purple longevity! Of course, I love this bead as purple is my favorite color and honestly purple is harder to find with Trollbeads compared to other colors.

Today, I have a review of the Event bead and an outline of the event itself. I hope many of you are able to go and I look forward to seeing photos on social media.

This first photo is one of my favorite ways to wear the purple longevity and will be repeated throughout Autumn and Winter as it’s such a perfect color composition. I have paired the longevity with some of Trollbeads latest collection the Polar Dreams, Angel Wing Alunite, Maple Leaves, Foxtail Spacer and Crown of Leaves Spacer on a Trollbeads Bangle.

We have had a rainy September, so there hasn’t been much sun to really show off the purple in these beads, but I think this photo shows the rich dark purple! The Longevity is a standard size ranging around 14 mm high x 7 mm wide.

Below you will find the Event details provided by Trollbeads Gallery.

The Purple Longevity looks really nice with the new Northern Lights Magic, Turquoise Prism, Lightning Bud Spacer, Crown of Leaves Spacer, two Lotus Tops.

How about a witch’n bangle with the Event Longevity, Trollbeads Amethyst, Witch Shoes, Maple Leaves, Foxtail Spacer and Crown of Leaves Spacer.

Of course, they mix with some old retired Trollbeads, too.

I have mixed the Purple Longevity with some wine colored Trollbeads. I think the purple shade goes well with a more wine color or a more amethyst purple. I have taken up-close photos of each part of this bracelet so that you can see the beads I’ve used a bit better.

As you can see here, it’s a pretty purple.

Wrist Shots!

Over all, this event is sure to be a blast! As you can see by the outline this has been planned out perfectly. The Purple Longevity is a must have for any purple or longevity lover.

Now for some important links.

  1. That full bracelet with the wine colored beads is amazing! I have gone to the last two events, but can’t make it this year-hopefully there will be some event beads left over for purchase online, though I don’t think they listed any last year. The event bead is lovely though I wish it were a different color or shade, since it is so close to last year’s (black) color. A lighter wine or golden shade would’ve been lovely, but this one is so dark, you almost can’t tell it’s purple. Thank you for the article.

    • Hi Tanya! Thank you 💜 Yes, it’s a darker purple, but in person you can tell more that it is indeed purple, especially in the sunlight. Fingers crossed you will have a chance to buy online after the event. I don’t remember if any made it to the site last year, I believe a few made it but it was closer to November.
