Kimberly Wahlberg, Special Guest

We are delighted to have Kim Walhberg attending our Trollbeads at the Beach Festival!  She worked as a representative for Trollbeads for 10 years!  She has had the pleasure of going to Copenhagen and working with the Aagaard family, as well as many of our favorite designers.  Her favorite thing about Trollbeads is that she can create a piece of jewelry that is deeply personal and is of heirloom quality. Furthermore, she loves that each piece of jewelry is like a snowflake, 
no two are alike.  She especially loves working with a new collector and helping them create their first piece of Trollbeads jewelry. ​​
