I just saw a video on the internet showing Pandora glass being made in Thailand. It made me wonder whether the Trollbeads glass is made there as well. Nothing wrong with that, I am just curious. Anyone know?

I'd say China.

All the plastic packets the beads are sent in to the retailers are marked 'Made in PRC'.

In a cave, by a troll...called Gertrude. She is a happy soul who whistles while she works and likes nothing better than waffles and Hopjes Koffie sweets.

What does she think of the nickname Gertie? I would assume that as a happy soul she would be fine with it, but some people are rather particular about their name.

Oh noooo! Is someone going to bump poor Gertie off?  affraid Did her ending monotone whistling get on someone's nerves and they finally let fly with a pickax? Or does she get into a vile mood after running out of caffeinated Hopjes and bump off the poor innocent gnome who was only delivering amethysts?

This is exactly how I picture them being made - that's the only thing that encourages to keep buying at the current price!!!

Oh my goodness, Gertie has barely been born and now she is off to being offed??? I sure hope that one of the FB dragons will come to her aid! Smile

I've located Gertie Wink in the Czech Republic, she's doing just fine! But there's also the major supply that comes from China.

Sadly China, a sore subject among glass beadmakers, many of whom pioneered the designs and process. However I don't know of one industry or craft that doesn't have the same fate. Sad I do hope that Trollbeads makes sure their employees have proper ventilation and eye protection.

I wondered about that. I see many artisan beads that look much, much better in person than the Trollbeads glass. (Not to knock the Trollbeads glass, I have many of them that are beautiful and that I love. But sometimes I come across one that just makes me think what was that supposed to be?) I feel like sometimes I am seeing beads made by the person that actually came up with a particular design, but because they aren't stamped LAA they aren't "real" Trollbeads. I am starting to think that they are MORE "real" than the mass produced ones that aren't even coming out of Europe.

My bead funds are limited, and I am just trying to make informed decisions about where my bead dollar goes these days.....
