Trollbeads Fantasy necklaces and Artisans comparison

Post by GRUMPY on Thu Jun 09, 2011 5:20 pm

I am quite a lazy collector when I realised the actual cost of beads on a necklace or bracelet I simply buy another necklace or bracelet. At the german convention a seller stated her silver fantasy was better quality. In fact I did buy an amethyst one of her and I must say.. comparing them to my trollbead ones I do feel that her silver necklace seems slightly stronger. I also purchased one from the netherlands via etsy and here I was pleased with it but I preferred the other artisan from a finishing point of view. You cant fault the trollbead fantasy necklaces. I just thought it was nice to see them all side by side..;-)

Here a few piccies..

and sorry some look like gold, it was the light .. they are silver.. gold I wish lol.


Above photo these are by trollbeads on one of them are actually, two bead of fortunes, they are a funny mix but it works as I bought via TBI a shiney bead of fortune, I have swapped halfs with them and now they look both perfect later more photos of this.




Above bought in Germany none trollbead and the amethyst is superb.



Above Fantasy Necklace bought via Etsy. Dutch seller. Lowest in Price nice though.

Thanks for the comparison. I really like the amethyst necklace. Also what is the big green bead that you have used on it?

Does the artisan you were happiest with have a website? I am hoping to buy an amethyst FN with birthday money at the end of June and want to get the best I can!

I ordered it from ebay, saw it and liked it, it came from australia, never saw it again.. its incredibly well detailed..and made. Someone out there is making them and its a good bead. I recently bought some skulls again via ebay again from australia, and they were pretty nice detail and heavy. they are all supposed to be silver and it looks and feels like it.. didnot test it.. but i think it is.

Hi - I received my new FN from her and she told me to say hi to the "english girl" who she sold the Amethyst FN to :-)

Mine has a smoky quartz but I also bought some pendants from her as well, photos to come :-)

Thanks for the recommendation x
