Lars Glad My inspiration no doubt comes from my Scandinavian roots. The clean Scandinavian look and the adventurous Nordic mythology, boiled together and recreated in a clean and simple interpretation, which can be described as modern and timeless. But often with a mechanical expression.
Ginie Gerrits- Since childhood, I have been fascinated by jewelry. I used to make my own earrings, bracelets, and hangers. Hours and hours, I was busy with silver wire and small beads. Some of the beads were creative just like creating my own “trolls.” About 4 years ago, I discovered Trollbeads and was pleasantly surprised about how easy it was to create my own jewelry again! I found a new passion, and also an addictive one!
Signe M. Schumann I have worked as a Goldsmith for Lise Aagaard since the summer of 2000. Surrounded by Trollbeads morning to evening, it had to happen - I designed my first bead. My family name is Schumann, the name of a famous Danish traveling circus, and Søren Nielsen once said to me, with a name like that you ought to make circus jewelry! That's why my first bead is a circus clown.
Kristi Dennings- "Trollbeads have become a great love for me. My first interest in Trollbeads was the fact that I could get my favorite animals on a bracelet. And not just the animals you find in a zoo but also the creatures you find in fairy stories. My first, and still favorite, Trollbead is the Lucky Dragon."

Thor Høy-Everywhere I go, I get inspiration ... for a new lamp, furniture, interior design a machine or ... a Trollbead...It may be in the wild or in town, on a trip or at home with my son, in industry or in art, among animals and humans ...Trollbeads can accommodate both the graphic and imaginative, the logical and the adventurous, and I am proud to be part of it ...
Lars Søgaard - is a trained goldsmith and has worked for 25 years with design and product development - from concept to reality. If you take a look at the beads you are wearing at this moment, do you not have thoughts and stories behind each one of them? Stories about friendship and love, stories from small and big events in your life.I hope my beads will create new stories….”
