Limited Edition Glass Trollbead available exclusively in the UK from TrollbeadsHeaven/UniqueBeadStore

Unable to contain my excitement until my bead arrives, I could not wait to post details of a limited edition glass Trollbead available exclusively in the UK from TrollbeadsHeaven/UniqueBeadStore.

It is apparently a limited edition release that was sent to the UK a few years ago, though the exact history of this bead is unknown.  It is presumed that the bead was destined for a special event or show, however story has it that a number of these beads ended up in a safe, where they were forgotten about . . . until this recent discovery! The batch of beads was then sent to TrollbeadsHeaven.

The style of the bead  is similar to that of some of the OOAK/Uniques around in 2009 / 2010, so it is thought that these beads may have been produced around that time.

As far as I am aware, these beads are purely unique to Trollbeads Heaven. Yesterday, there was the opportunity to ‘pre-order’ one of these beads, however you did not get to choose your actual bead. Then tonight, a number of these beads were pictured and listed individually to purchase at a cost of £32.

I could not resist this bead, as after seeing the leaked video / images for the Spring 2014 collection, I think that this bead would fit in beautifully. It has gorgeous tones of gold, brown and turquoise and reminds me of a more colourful version of the ‘Dew Drops’ bead (61430) from the Folklore kit – which I think would go equally well with some of the new Spring collection.
