Hello, I have been looking at some photos of older unique Trollbeads and I can't seem to figure out which unique designs have been given the name "tribal" by collectors. Hope someone can share. Thanks!

These are the newer uniques with a tribal feel. The only other ones I can think of are the Malawi beads from 2012, which looked tribal. But I can't think of any especially tribal styles before then.

Hopefully, someone else will come along with a better memory than me.

Hi beadyfish - I think the white bead at 4 o'clock is another example of a tribal bead Wink

We were calling these uniques tribal when they were released:

I remember those! I have never come across those again. You are lucky! My favorite is the orange one.

Double post~

Kite beads can have a tribal look, too. I recently got a green one with a black dot in the kite. No pictures yet, sadly...the ornament uniques are tribal, some of the older uniques that were recently mentioned in a separate post can be considered primitive and could enhance a tribal look.

Wow, great photos everyone! Thank you for your replies. It seems like the category of "tribal" for uniques can mean different things to different people.
