Trollbeads Autumn 2016 Sneak Preview

A couple of weeks ago I received a very special package from Trollbeads which included a sample of the Autumn 2016 collection. Firstly, and before I go any further, I want to say a big thank you to Trollbeads for giving me the privilege of receiving these beads from them and getting the opportunity to review them before they are officially released.

The new collection, “Spirit of Life”, will be officially released on 9th September. The inspiration comes from Mexican spirituality and is all about connecting people, making them feel empowered by unity and encouraging them to celebrate life and each other.

The collection offers a new style of bangle, the Twisted Bangle, in both silver and copper …. both of which are gorgeous and designed by Lise Aagaard. The rest of the collection comprises of 10 silver beads, 6 glass beads, 2 stones, 2 tassels, a lock,  a ring and a set of stud earrings.

I was very eager to incorporate the new beads with my existing collection, and I have done this with some of the beads. I am eager to get my hands on the rest of the collection when they are officially released, at which point I will do another post to incorporate more of the release and show how the collection as a whole works on its own and with exisiting pieces in the collection.

First up has to be the new bangles. As beautiful as they are on their own, I think they will look amazing stacked with the existing plain bangle. Here are some images …

The new stud earring complement the new lock and are very dainty, very much my style …

The new set of glass beads is very pretty. Initially, I was not sure how well they worked together as a set, but actually, they work really well offering a nice balance of colours, especially when put with the silvers. I will be interested to use these further once i get my hands on the rest of the collection …

Being an autumn collection, my first thoughts came as autumnal shades and here is how I used some of the new beads with my existing collection …

  1. They look beautiful Louise! I adore the bracelet you’ve created using dark autumnal tones. Looking forward to making a few more purchases soon. I will have to have a silver bangle and at least one of the pink beads then start on the Autumn bracelet you’ve inspired! X
