I hope that this post isn't perpetuating "fake/counterfeit" Noosa chunks because that subject really bothers me when it comes to Trollbeads. I do love other brands of large hole, European charms such as Red Bali Frog and artisans so I got excited when I came across these web sites of different brands for "chunk" jewelry. Has anyone tried or seen in person any of these? I will be so embarrassed if these are considered knock offs of Noosa Embarassed Please forgive me if they are and I've offended anyone. Would love to hear about the quality, if these are indeed good companies.

I am really excited about the Babouche brand. They can't discount VAT or shipping to United States customers but said that they would give me some type of discount depending on my order. So...if anyone in the United States is interested in combining an order, let me know! Pintz said that they would discount the VAT and had to look up the cost of shipping to United States.

I don't know anything about these but like the Babouche ones, particularly the purse and the keyrings. I would also be interested to hear anyone else's information about them.

The Babouche ones are a little bit bigger so I understand and the can't be mixed and matched with the Noosa ones. I haven't tried it myself, but that's just what I heard...

I heard that they are bigger and that the quality isn't very good either.

I have just seen on Mango Beads FB page that Manda is making Mango Pops which are compatible with Noosa. They look very pretty.

A very bad photo of my Mango Pops, taken in bright sunlight creating too much shadow, but it gives you a bit of an idea what they are like. The colours are actually much richer and the patterns finer.

They are pretty, I like the ' fern frond' and the colours are lovely. I am thinking of getting the Noosa sandals and would like some of Manda's Mango Pops as well as the Noosa chunks.
