EVERY BEAD IS A MINIATURE PIECE OF ART!

Suzie Q Studio has a treasure vault full of Rare & Retired Trollbeads... and we’re making them available to you. We’re starting with our Rare & Retired Glass Beads. See here how the exquisite glass Trollbeads are made.


Have you been wondering why I have multiple listings for several of the glass Trollbeads currently available to purchase in my “Rare & Retired Trollbeads Collection"? It’s because each bead is individually handmade by melting glass over a red-hot flame. Even beads with the same name, such as the rare Blue White Armadillo, are slightly different and reflect the style of each glass artisan, as you can see below...

Making glass beads demands patience and precision. Compared to metal, glass is very different to work with. You cannot control glass like metal, which you can hammer, pull and stretch.

Everyone was mesmerized by the meditative flow of fire and molten glass,,,
