The first Trollbeads release of 2016 is Trollbeads Valentines collection. Released on January 18th, this is a nice small collection of just three pieces … a glass bead, a silver bead, and a new style of ring.
The glass bead ‘Blooming Hearts’ is very similar to the designs we saw in the glass kit released for Valentines 2015. The bead is a pink core with red, purple and gold glitter hearts on the surface. This bead is limited edition and will retail at £35 / €42 / $46.
The silver bead ‘Heart Rhythm’ is a disc shaped bead and features an edge design similar to a heart rate monitor trace, with heart shapes cut out on the face of the bead. Again, this bead is limited edition and will retail at £25 / €28 / $31.
The final piece in the collection is a new style of ring that allows you to add a glass bead of your choice. ‘Ring of Change’ is not limited edition and will retail at €69.
Valentines 2010 saw the release of beautiful Crazy Lace Agate beads.
Displaying a range of shades from vibrant pink to purple, these stones have a beautiful marbled and veined effect, which also varies in intensity. The European release saw smooth cabochon style beads, whereas the US saw faceted versions being released.
**Whilst this was a limited edition, the Spring 2011 release saw the introduction of Pink Agates and Pink Striped Agates, both of which compliment these beads beautifully and provide a similar substitute for those who missed out on this release. **
