Since first seeing the leaked video last year, I have been anticipating this release and waiting for full stock images to appear. The release is set to debut on 24th January 2014. Full details of this release are now available and are as follows:
Sparkle kit – consisting of 6 glass beads (Ancient Palace, Desert Rose, Fountain of Life, Magical Lamp, Oasis, Scirocco) which are available either as a complete set or individually. The beads retail at £23 / $31 / 28 EUR each.
City Fashion Kit – consisting of 6 glass beads (Black Armadillo, Chess, Fashion Flower, White Steel, White Bubbles, White Flower) which are available either as a complete set or individually. The beads retail at £23 / $31 / 28 EUR each. These beads will look familiar as they are a selection from the current Black & White / New Black & White kits which are set to retire from production this year. The remainder of these sets will still retire.
Engraved Romance and Engraved Poetic – these two engraved glass beads will retail at £32 / $43 / 39 EUR each.
Sahara Jewel Facet and Sahara Night Facet – a return of the faceted style beads seen in the Fall 2013 release, these two beads retail at £32 / $43 / 39 EUR
Emerald and Moss Agate Gemstones – These two new gemstones retail at £115 / $155 / 140 EUR for the Emerald and £47 / $63 / 57 EUR for the Moss Agate.
Dromedary – this silver and glass mix retails at £65 / $87 / 78 EUR. The glass ball is very reminiscent of the current ‘Pink Desert’ bead.
Ruby Falcon and Drops of Delight – these two silver and gemstone mix beads retail at £97 / $128 / 115 EUR for the Ruby Falcon and £70 / $92 / 84 EUR for the Drops of Delight. The falcon’s head is set upon ruby and the silver vial which looks like the topper of an oil / perfume bottle is set upon rose quartz.
Ten new silver beads debut which include: African Tortoise (£35 / $44 / 42 EUR), Arabian Hare (£42 / $53 / 51 EUR), Falcon (£23 / $28 / 28 EUR), Jewel Fairy Basslet (£23 / $28 / 28 EUR), Snake (£23 / $28 / 28 EUR), Swan (£35 / $44 / 42 EUR), Babylonian Nymph (£35 / $44 / 42 EUR), Moroccan Cushion (£42 / $53 / 51 EUR), Nomad (£42 / $53 / 51 EUR) and Kaleidescope (£42 / $53 / 51 EUR).
Sun Moon and Stars Lock – This lovely, heavily textured lock features a sun on one side, and the moon and stars on the other. It retails at £40 / $54 / 48 EUR.
Brown & Light Grey and Blue & Dark Grey leather bracelets – finally, these two new leather bracelets retail at £25 / $33 / 30 EUR.
I absolutely loved the Fall 2013 release but this release is even better in my eyes. The Sparkle kit complements the current Blue Desert and Pink Desert and retired brown Desert beads beautifully.
