Today’s post brings the first details of Trollbeads Day 2015.
August 1st 2014 saw the first event of this kind, and to commemorate the day a limited edition bead was produced, which was a truly ‘trollish’ design.
This year, Trollbeads Day is to be held on June 6th (a Saturday), and another commemorative bead will be produced.
Here are the details circulating at present, which apparently are the only details that have been given to retailers for pre-orders:
‘Let your spirit feel the break of dawn. Seek a moment of harmony and find inner peace. The forest quietly comes to life and the soft light breaks in the tree tops. The rays find their way to the forest floor which is slowly getting warmer. Life begins to trickle. Now it is dawn in the forest where all the trolls live. Trollbeads Day 2015 is a faceted glass bead with an engraving of the year. The bead is designed by the founder of Trollbeads, Lise Aagaard’
The bead is set to retail at £45 / €51 / $55, the same price point as the faceted glass beads from the ‘Eastern Facet Kit’ of Fall 2014.
Last year saw the actual bead being shrouded in secrecy until images appeared the day before the release. The only hints that were given to collectors were teasers via the social media platform ‘Snapchat’. Many enthusiasts were left bemused by the choice of media platform, and whether Trollbeads do the same again this year remains to be seen. No images are available at present.
Did you like last year’s bead? Will you be placing a pre-order for this bead or waiting until it is released?
