Trollbeads At The Beach Festival
Louise Rimpler has since 1990 been a tattoo artist in the inner city of Copenhagen. She is best known for her colorful cartoon style and is the most awarded female tattoo artist in Denmark.
Originally she wanted to be an animator but then she got tattooed and this fascinated her deeply. People are an exciting canvas! “My life and mind are filled with wonderful experiences and personalities through my work as a tattoo artist.
I give my customers colourful symbols that tell the story of times and places in their lives, even when they get tattooed by purely aesthetic reasons. One by one, they go through a painful process in my hands, and I feel privileged to have seen them animate my drawings. Now I would like to invite everybody to painlessly step into my drawn universe.

Founder of Trollbeads
We were so excited when Lise Aagaard, the founder of Trollbeads attended our Trollbeads at the Beach Festival in October 2016! Lise has designed countless glass beads for the Trollbeads line. She did a fabulous presentation on Unique Glass Trollbeads at the main event on Saturday and took photos & mingled with guests at the Lewes Presbyterian Church. Collectors had a great time meeting Lise in person and we hope that she will be able to visit again in the future!
From Lise "Being from a family of jewelers, I have had the lifelong privilege of being immersed in a constant learning environment of art, form, and material. Always facing the possibilities and boundaries of innovation from a professional point-of-view. I can honestly say that I am inspired by anything and everything. Diversity ignites my curiosity in life as well as in the worlds of metal, precious stones, pearls, amber, and glass. I am deeply grateful for having had the opportunity to touch people from all over the world through my work."
Some of Louise's most recent designs include:
Having been with Trollbeads for several years, Nicholas is a passionate expert who enjoys a good conversation with any Trollbeads customer. He used to work at the global head office in Denmark before taking the position at the US subsidiary in Princeton in 2013.
"Trollbeads is truly a part of my own identity, and to me there are few greater feelings in this world than the one I get when I experience first-hand how meaningful our jewelry is to so many people across the globe."
Nicholas has attended many past Trollbeads at the Beach festivals in which he has helped customers find their perfect beads as well as taught them about the many designs of the fantasy necklace!
