Troll-Man (Trollbeads Leather Bracelet For Men)
Is it just me or is it getting harder and harder to think of gift ideas for husbands, boyfriends….etc?
Recently I decided to buy my partner a Trollbeads leather bracelet for our anniversary in May. I thought about it long and hard, after all, we cannot deny that Trollbeads is basically a female market.
On the other hand, I am familiar with the brand and have confidence in their quality, so I decided to go for it and I have not regretted my decision since the recipient is very happy and wearing his new bracelet every day.
It doesn’t affect his guitar playing! Thumbs up for the bracelet! 🙂
- 10 colours choices
- RRP £25 (for the leather bracelet itself, clasp not included)

Little Tips For The Leather Bracelet
Cut the end to fit
My Trollbeads leather bracelet is the 35cm (the smallest), but with the lock added to the length, it was still too long for me. This was easily sorted by cutting any extra length at the end of the bracelet.
Add a jump ring for easy fastening
When I first got my leather bracelet, I was going to return it because it was way too difficult to fasten! Seriously I don’t know how others can do it! Then I tried to put a jump ring at the end, it turned out to be great and it doesn’t affect the look even slightly in my opinion.
For easy fastening, add a jump ring at the end. You can also cut the end for fitting.
Not all the beads fit onto it
I am a bit disappointed that some of the beads cannot go onto the bracelet, like my Hong Kong Skyline glass bead and a couple of classic core glass beads. The silver beads should not have this problem. However, because of the variation of hole size of each bead, some beads slide around on the bracelet, some beads stay in place. In case of leather bracelet, I do like my beads to stay in place, so I can spread them evenly on it. I ended up spend quite a while to sort out what beads to put on the bracelet.
The pearl, the heart unique and the white bubble beads here are a snug fit,
so they stay in place nicely on the bracelet.
Some Trollbeads Choices For Men
I am loving the fact that the Trollbeads bracelet gives you a 4 strands look, it looks chunky and funky, and I definitely recommend it for men as well. It looks lovely even without any beads on and great for stacking too.
