Today saw the unveiling of the first preview images of Trollbeads Christmas 2014 collection. I never know whether to call these releases ‘Winter’ or ‘Christmas’ collections, but with all the festive themed beads within this release, I have opted for Christmas!
This release will debut on 17th October 2014, but what follows is a full preview (except for individual glass bead names and photos – I will update with these as soon as they become available).
Firstly, the two glass kits, which for me are always the highlight of this seasonal collection.
Magic Winter Kit (€252 / £210 per kit)
Classic Christmas Kit (€252 / £210 per kit)
Next up are the silver (and gold) beads :
Holly Bushes (€28 / £25)
Crystal Heart (€67 / £60)
Snowballs (€42 / £35)
Heart Bow (€42 / £35)
Heart 4 You (€42 / £35)
Wilful Cat (£42 / £35)
Impulsive Mouse (€42 / £35)
Lucky Parrot (€42 / £35)
Eternal Love (€42 / £35)
Trollbeads Eternal Love Gold ( €615 /£492)
Lucky Love (€315 / £252)
And even some diamonds ….
Moonlight Cat (€395.98 / £312)
A beautiful new lock which compliments the other beads in the release perfectly…..
Bow Lock (€52 / £45)
Two gorgeous rings …..
Crystal Bubble (€83 / £70)
Blushing Bubble (€83 / £70)
And finally, some more earrings …..
Rouge Romance (€41 / £35)
Fancy Drops (€52 / £45 available in 1cm / 3.5cm / 5cm drop)
Fancy Facet Drops (€67 / £55 available in 1cm / 3.5cm / 5cm drop)
The highlights for me are definitely the Magic Winter Kit, and I also like Holly Bushes and Eternal Love. The Magic Winter bead with the copper-gold inclusions appears to be one which will show quite a degree of variation in the shades of blue … if this is the case then it will be one that I will certainly try to acquire multiples of.
For many, the Christmas Tree glass beads will undoubtedly be must-haves, and are likely to be sought after to the same degree as Elegant Sparkle and Love Sparkle from the Christmas release last year.
The glass kits in this release not only compliment last years Christmas release which included a red kit and a blue kit, but also the recent fall release which includes some stunning red, green and blue beads. Plenty of opportunity to mix and match – after all, that is the beauty of Trollbeads!
And lastly, just to round this all off, here are some inspirational images to keep you going until 17th October:
