THANK YOU!…


… For All The FAB Beady FUN!!!

A BIG Thank YOU to everyone who came to Suzie Q Studio for our Trollbeads Glass Artisan Event! It was truly dazzling to see rods of glass being melted, twisted and turned into miniature pieces of one-of-a-kind glass art... pretty amazing!

For those of you who also took advantage of some Super-Sweet Trollbeads SPECIALS, I wish you much enjoyment from your recent Troll acquisitions!

The oh-so-lovely Ms. Mariela came all the way from Trollbeads Head Quarters in Princeton, New Jersey to enchant us with her glass bead making skills. From the sounds of the “oohs” and “aahs”, everyone was amazed and mesmerized!


See Mariela in ACTION in this short VIDEO… WOW, right?!

Pictured here is Marie, having her custom glass bead created by Mariela.

Marie is one of my earliest Trollbeads collectors, starting way back in 2003 or 04, when my shop was located in a little bright orange and chartreuse house, off-the-beaten-track, on 10th Ave. SE in the charming neighbourhood of Inglewood.

Marie has also taken a lot of Suzie Q jewellery-making classes and has created all kinds of wonderful, handcrafted jewellery… There’s always lots of fun to be had when Marie comes to visit!

This is Liz G. Liz is a longtime, avid Trollbeads Collector. She loves her Trollbeads to be big ’n’ chunky, just like me!

Liz is from Argentina so she asked Mariela to create an over-sized glass bead in the colours of the Argentinian flag… very cool idea, Liz!

The bead Mariela made was on the large side, as requested, so it had to cool down slowly overnight in a special blanket. When Liz returned on Sunday to pick up her “Flag” bead, as you can tell from her expression, she was thrilled with the results!


This shows some of the final Trollbeads created by Mariela at our special event.

Shown above and below are only some of the glass beads that Mariela made. Some of the beauties went home with their owners before I could snap a PIC, but the ones that I was able to take pictures of, are very unique, representing a different story for each person, which is one of the best things about individually, handcrafted Trollbeads, especially with the beads that Mariela made for all of us who participated.

Can you guess which one is mine?

As you may have noticed, A LOT of people requested oversize glass beads to be made and Mariela happily complied… YAY!

I’ve always been of the opinion that, “Bigger is Best”, so of course, the glass bead that Mariela created for me is the largest one shown in these pics, featuring two of my favourite colours: bright orange and light blue :-D

I’m a big-time bracelet wearer and not into necklaces very much, but with the spectacular bead Mariela made, it cried out to be showcased on the Rosa Pearl Fantasy Necklace shown below… what do you think?… Totally WOW!, right?!

A gentleman named Randy attended the Trollbeads Glass Artisan Event to have Mariela create two custom glass beads as a unique gift for his wife… lucky lady! Shown in the centre of the above photo collage are the two handcrafted glass beads for Randy’s wife and he decided to add a gorgeous Limited Edition “Wishful Sky” bracelet, as well as a Trollbeads travel case!… Like I said, lucky lady, or what?!

The spectacular custom “Mariela” bead, on the far right-hand side of the photo collage above, belongs to Susan M. When looking at some bracelet options, we decided that in keeping with every handmade glass bead being a "miniature piece of art", Susan chose a Limited Edition “Art To Go” bracelet with a “Uniques” glass bead that totally complements the bead made by Mariela, along with a precious sterling silver bead of a pencil, pen and paintbrush, PLUS, a “squeezed tube of paint” for the clasp… perfect for the “handcrafted-artisan” theme!

Rae Parry, Director of Artist Relations for Beads of Courage Canada was on hand at our Trollbeads Glass Artisan Event to explain the Beads of Courage program to attendees of the event.

Rae is an incredible glass bead artisan herself and created all of the beads in the necklace that she’s wearing in the above photo-collage, including the whimsical “sock-monkey” bead… isn’t it sweet?

To hear about the Beads of Courage program, and to see Rae in action with her glass bead-making expertise, please check out the VIDEO below.

The proceeds from the sales of the custom glass beads that Mariela created will be going to Beads of Courage Canada and I’m happy to announce that $850.00 will be donated to this truly amazing program... A big “Thank You” to everyone who participated and generously donated to such a worthwhile cause!
