Great Lakes Boutique Spring Bead Break Reflection

This charm bracelet blog brings a collaboration of image and news from the Great Lakes Boutique Spring Bead Break.

I’m now (grudgingly) back in Denmark after spending an amazing week in Ohio thanks to the team at Great Lakes Boutique. Those of you who follow either my blog or social media pages (Facebook and Instagram) should be more than aware that last weekend was the Spring Bead Break event featuring Ohm Beads, Trollbeads, True Beadz and ACA Kreations. No other store can bring together such an amazing array of brand representatives and it was amazing. To those of you who travelled (near or far) to see us; thank you. On behalf of the brand representatives, we never cease to be humbled by your enthusiasm and dedication.

I dedicated more time to social media this event and was blogging, posting and videoing live from the event so hopefully some of you caught that. For those who didn’t (or who aren’t on social media,) it’s time for a catch up. This article is picture heavy as opposed to text as frankly I’m still emotional to have left (and they say pictures speak a thousand words anyway.) There was fun, lots of beads (exclusive and otherwise,) teasers and some serious planning. #swishandflick #nospoilers #TLWD

Great Lakes Boutique Spring Bead Break Reflection

In terms of bead exclusives, the Ohm Beads OhmMyGod 2.0 and True Beadz Hygge were the actual event beads (and for reference any remaining will be sold at a very special party on Friday May the 5th. The precise time will be confirmed.)

Further to that the Ohm Beads Dirty Words made their first appearance as part of a promotion, the latest batch of True Beadz True Treasures were released, the ACA Kreations Dragon & Phoenix had it’s advanced launch and Alex took along some rather special beads.

The brand representatives this time were Julia and Alexey of True Beadz, Mike and Kit from Ohm Beads, Cara from Trollbeads, Alex from ACA Kreations and of course myself. Once again I can’t even begin to describe the love between this group. When Mike first mentioned his plans last year to bring together so many representatives, I was sceptical. The potential for disaster among a group that are essentially competitors was huge. What has actually developed is an incredibly strong bond. Competitors or not the love is real and it was genuinely like being back among family. To my fellow reps I miss you more than words can say.

Julia was offering live glass bead making demonstrations and I was trying to capture some of these via Facebook live (you can check those out on my personal page here.) Once again kudos to Julia for helping people create their dream beads.

Great Lakes Boutique Spring Bead Break Summary

I’ve already had people asking me “what’s next?” (My not so subtle cover photograph updates on social media didn’t help.) There was a lot plotting and scheming and though I’m not able to discuss specifics right now, rest assured we’ll be back and it’s going to be bigger, better and quite frankly, a little unbelievable (#swishandflick.)

Once again to those who attended in person, shopped online, chatted online, shared their images and so on; thank you. To the Great Lakes Boutique; thank you for hosting another amazing event and for inviting me along. To the community at large; we’ll see you soon 😉 #biggerbettersoon

Love to you all.

xoxo

P.S. On a very personal note thank you to those who looked after me on the Thursday. I was so violently ill when I arrived that for a while I couldn’t actually stand. To those who delivered me painkillers, food, coffee (I know, I know) and even the magical, mystery “little green Russian pills,” thank you <3

    Wonderful pics, looks like everyone had lots of fun, well apart from the being ill bit!

      Oh I haven’t been that sick in ages! I drank a little on the Wednesday night.. woke up feeling slightly icky but nothing major. Had breakfast with the other reps.. went back to the hotel room and felt like I was dying. Then of course I was panicking because this was Thursday and the event was beginning on the Friday :*( I spent all day in bed. Couldn’t manage lunch out with the reps. Fortunately a few lovely people took care of me and found me various drugs, went and got me soup, went to Starbucks and by Friday I felt *mostly* human. I still have absolutely no idea what was wrong but for a few hours in the afternoon when I tried to get out of bed, it was just not happening.

      Other than that it was amazing!

      xoxoxo

    Thank you so much Victoria for posting all the photos and updates. I was following your posts on Facebook and it was almost like I was there with you. It’s great to see different brand representatives understanding each other so well and having a great time together just like we do when we wear and love their beads.
    Will there be another Great Lakes event in Fall this year? I so wish I was able to go but since I’m from Europe the only thing I can do is watch the videos and pics on Facebook and read funny stories but that is fun, too. My only big regret is that I cannot open Great Lakes web site in my country so I was not able to get any of the True Treasures and there were a few that I very much loved. I bought 6 True Beadz production beads via Facebook and Ohm my God 2 before I ran out of money. Now must save for the next event 😀

    • endangeredtrolls

      Hey sweetie,

      The issues with the website… Mike is aware of them. We actually discussed them at the event. Hopefully they’ll be an update in the not too distant future. When I know anything, you will know <3

      Autumn... yes. Next spring; yes also 🙂 I have to be a little careful what I say right now as I don't want to get into trouble but I'm hoping I'll be able to announce something *huge* reasonably soon 😀 😀 😀

      xoxo

      • Elizabeth

        I love huge! Can’t wait to hear!

        • endangeredtrolls

          It’s beyond huge. It’s actually crazy 😀 And awesome. And exciting 😀

          xoxo

  3. Liz

    It looked amazing 😊 Thank you for all the posts, photos & videos. I’ve enjoyed following it online.
    All the beads looked amazing. I can’t imagine what it must take to organise something like this and then get all the online orders started after 😊
    Thanks to you I managed to get a True Hugge and a OHM my god 😄😄😄 I am very happy, I didn’t think I would be in with a chance but I kept checking the at work 😏
    I also put 2 True Beadz orders in 😄 And I was very lucky and got a True Treasure as well 😊
    I better start saving for the next one 😄

    • endangeredtrolls

      Yay!! You got the beads you wanted! 😀 Oh oh which True Treasure did you get? I didn’t even get to SEE most of them (again!) I always end up missing out completely 😀

      I’m so happy for you 😀

      xoxo

      • Liz

        It’s got a black base with a blue swirl going round it. There was about 6 the same design, i really wanted one after seeing the previews so am very happy 😄 I was expecting it to disappear out my basket, it’s a wonderful feeling when the payment made page appears 😄

        • endangeredtrolls

          I have that one!! Julia sent me samples of a few and that one was included and I love it because it’s so moody! 😀

          Yay! I’m so pleased for you! 😀

          xoxo

  4. Gene

    There are so many great things going on in these photos that I don’t even know where to start! One important comment first… Your hair is amazing! There are some things that you aren’t telling about that I am wanting to know here. For example the silver city scene encompassing the orange Ohm bead. I guess I will have to wait for more information because ; as far as I know, I’ve never seen that before. It was frustrating not being able to get the True Treasure that I wanted because they were gone so fast. But I did get one thing!!! For two days I watched the True Tower hourly. Every time I checked it was unavailable. Then finally I looked on Saturday afternoon and there it was. I actually sent an email to make sure my order went through ( told you I was a worrier!!!)

    • endangeredtrolls

      Thank you <3 I'm loving the new hair which is just as well because I'm stuck with it for a while 😉

      The mystery teasers.. they'll feature more in the next couple of days <3 Though I can't really give any specifics 😉 Aside from "mystery teasers"

      I'm so pleased you got the True Tower! I know the True Treasures went ridiculously fast - it was the same in store. I was determined to check them out this time and.. no. Not even close 😀

      xoxoxo

  5. Julia

    going through the photos first. MISS YOU ALL, GUYS! now back to reading=)
    it was such a huge event! the atmosphere, the people, the beads! no words can be good enough. it was amazing!

    • endangeredtrolls

      Yes!! Exactly!! And each time I think of what’s to come.. I’m like “oh my god are we actually going to do this? Of course we are!” 😀 😀 😀

      I miss you so much sweetie <3 🙁

      xoxoxo

      • Julia

        haha we can do it! #tlwd <3 <3 <3

        • endangeredtrolls

          #tlwd (we’re crazy but it will be awesome 😀 😀 :D)

          xoxo

  6. Heather M

    Your photos are fabulous and the event looked like so much fun!!! I can’t wait to see what’s up next! 🙂

    • endangeredtrolls

      It was *amazing*. The events are really tiring in some ways but oh my gosh I wouldn’t change it for the world. I love meeting people and seeing their enthusiasm for the products. I love being around the other reps. They’re my family <3

      I'm so pleased you enjoyed the photographs <3

      xoxo

  7. Gene

    Just want you to know that you and Julia are ‘killing’ me here with your secret talking!!!

    • endangeredtrolls

      😉 😉 😉

      As soon as I’m allowed, I’ll share 😀 😀 I suspect Mike at GLB and Kit at Ohm are already cursing me 😀 😀

      As for Julia.. we miss each other :'(

      xoxo

      • Gene

        It just shows it’s not just about collecting beads, but also about building great friendships.

        • endangeredtrolls

          That’s exactly the thing.

          When Mike first told me his plan – last year – to bring all of these brand reps together.. I remember saying to him “this could be either amazing or absolutely awful.” There was no predicting which way it would go. Essentially all of those reps are competing for the same money from visitors. Instead what actually happened was this amazing friendship. We literally had people saying “no we don’t make anything like that but go check out .. because they do and they’re awesome!” The chemistry just can’t be faked 🙂

          It’s the same among the collectors. Some of these ladies are so close and it’s like a big family reunion for them. There were many tears shed as we all had to begin leaving.

          The atmosphere is just incredible <3

          xoxo

  8. Kim

    Just love seeing all your photos here! It was an awesome event, and I can’t wait to hear what you all have up your collective sleeve for the next time! I’m going to keep going back and looking at your photos again and again. The friendship, camaraderie and high spirits displayed by everyone connected to the event, be they the GLB team, the brand reps and the customers, can’t be matched. Oh yeah, and I got some really cool beads and jewelry too. 😉

    • endangeredtrolls

      What did you leave with Kim? As I just said to Liz I spent so much time online this time that I feel like I kinda missed what people were actually choosing to buy. I *loved* your necklace though 😀 😀

      I have SO many photographs on my phone and I’m going to have to delete them to make room but I really don’t want to :*(

      xoxox

      • Kim

        That was a fun necklace! I don’t usually wear my FN long, but it seemed appropriate for the event. 🙂

        What did I come away with? Let’s see…Alex’s Dragon & Phoenix, Tupilak pendant, and a pair of his earrings (mine were the rose gold cranes). A fairly substantial haul of True Beadz, including a pair of Hygge and a few True Treasures, for which I braved life and limb during the scrimmage Friday when they were brought out. And a few Ohm Beads, including a Dirty Books and a few RandOhms. Quite the haul! 🙂

        Sorry to hear you were sick at first. Maybe it was the water change. That happened to me once when I went to England. I spend an entire day in bed as sick as a dog. Anyways, I’m already looking forward to the next event!

        • endangeredtrolls

          Oh I remember now that you were debating the Tupilak! Did you wear it yet? I love that piece and it gets *so* much attention when I wear it. I did know you got the earrings (they’re so beautiful I think. I want a pair myself :D)

          Which True Treasures did you manage to get? I was so busy filming the chaos surrounding those that I didn’t actually get to see that many of them 😀 I’m so pleased to hear that you got a good haul though 😉

          As for Thursday.. I still have no idea. The funny thing is my stomach is usually lead lined. NOTHING upsets it. I literally live off caffeine and whatever I manage to scrounge up to eat on a daily basis but I was *so* sick! Interestingly I was (obviously) drinking a lot of water so you could be onto something there. I did get to watch bad day time US tv though which is actually WAY better than Danish TV 😉

          xoxo

          • Kim

            I’vebeen wearing Dragon & Phoenix all week, so I haven’t actually worn the Tupilak yet. I’m going to have a good play with it this weekend though! I’m wondering if I should make its own dedicated necklace for it, since that’s not something I think I’d switch around much with different beads.

            You actually have a picture of my True Treasures haul here! 🙂 The photo of the silver and copper bangles on the True Beadz bag. So I got a lavender and cream one with CZs, one of the pastel striped ones (I’ve been calling those the Easter Egg beads), a blue and brown swirl with silver inclusions, and a dichoric one with the Taste finish. The blue and brown swirl and the Easter Egg were two of the ones that I had really been hoping for based on the preview pictures, so I did pretty well, I think. 🙂

          • endangeredtrolls

            Oh my days! They’re yours! Those lavender ones :O :O 😀

            I have to confess I do have one of those but only thanks to a very dear friend! I never even *saw* them 😀 You were very lucky to get that one especially! 😀 I love that top bangle particularly. The colours are just spectacular but then.. Julia just has something special when it comes to colours I think.

            xoxox

          • Kim

            Yes she does! The top bangle were the Friday scrimmage grabs, so I was lucky to get what I got. Just happened to be in the right place at the right time. And there wasn’t exactly time to calmly and carefully consider your choices either – it was grab what you can then and there. I know there were others that I saw in the preview photos that I would have liked that I never saw either, but it was such a fantastic selection there’s sure to be something pleasing for everyone, hopefully! Not that I’m at all complaining at what I got, since I was able to get my top pick and some other lovely ones besides.

  9. Elizabeth

    Great pictures of such a great event! It is hard to believe the event came and went so quickly. I came home tired with an empty wallet but very happy. It is so nice to have such an amazing group of people gather together. Even the bead frenzy was not as wild as it looked. I am sure there are awesome plans in the works for future events. I look forward to hearing the details!

    • endangeredtrolls

      I can’t believe it’s over already Liz 🙁 What did you leave with in the end? I spent so much time online this time around that I seem to have bypassed what people were purchasing! 🙁

      Future plans…. soon I hope! 😉 And it’s crazy and amazing and ludicrous and utterly awesome 😉

      xoxo

  10. Jo Ann

    Dear Victoria, Glad you recovered quick enough to fully enjoy the event. Thank you so much for making us all a part of it. The multiple brands’ reps do seem to pull together here, making the whole so much more, for everyone. From your photos, and the posts during the event, we can see the heart felt energy going around. The posts between you and Julia are sweet. Have been coveting True Beadz, placed an order, so got to participate in this way. Was lucky enough to get the special OmhMyGod 2.0 too. Eagerly awaiting those beads. Wishing someday to attend this event. It really does seem it is as much about making friends, as it is about the beads. Curious about the huge news for the coming event…All the best to you!

    • endangeredtrolls

      The atmosphere is incredible 🙂 Even the brand reps sat down during the event and were like “how did this ever happen?” Theoretically we should never have bonded the way we did but the friendship and love is so real. I can’t even begin to express how much I cherish these people. They’re absolutely family to me. If you can ever make it, please do try. I know some people stress about going alone but there were a couple of ladies that made the journey alone this time and all was well. The whole thing is just very inclusive <3

      I'm so pleased you managed to both start your True Beadz collection and get the OhmMyGod 2.0! Which True Beadz did you get? 😀

      As for the huge news.. I'm waiting on the go ahead from a couple of people far more important than I 😉

      xoxo

  11. Marisa

    Thanks Victoria for bringing the event to life for those of us who have to follow the fun online. From the way it all worked I just assumed such collaboration between brands was the norm, so am so pleased that it’s been such a success! 👏👏👏
    Big congrats all round but especially to the Great Lakes Team.
    PS. I too managed to bag a True Treasure (a blue one with little zirconias) but blimey charlie, I’ve never had to move SO fast in my life 😅

    • endangeredtrolls

      Actually if you look at events, it’s quite uncommon to see multi-brand events and definitely not on the scale that Great Lakes do 🙂 Most are mono-brand events 🙂

      The True Treasures went *so* fast both in store AND online! So congratulations! 😀

      xoxo

  12. Agi

    Thank you so much for the wonderful photos and for keeping us informed with all your posts and updates. It is great to see and read how excellently everything worked. Though I did not get my favourite True Treasures bead (a blue and yellow one, which I called ‘my Swedish bead’) I am so happy with all my new beads. I bought nine True Beadz, among them the wonderful Hygge. So my still very small True Beadz collection will enlarge from three to twelve beads/dangles. I am so happy and looking forward to receiving the beads during the next weeks. I enjoyed the event online so much and was constantly online searching for new information. Thanks a lot for everything!

    • endangeredtrolls

      You are most welcome! The social media and online coverage was better this time though still not as good as it could be. Onwards and upwards 😉 Hopefully next time I can improve it even further 😉

      I can’t wait for people to start receiving their beads. Hygge is beautiful for the summer as it really catches the sunshine 😀 What other True Beadz did you get? Production or Treasures? 😀

      xoxo

      • Agi

        For me your information was really wonderful. Though I am not on Facebook, I was able to read some important postings there and by reading in your blog I was well informed. In addition I created an Instagram account a couple of days before, so everything worked fine.

        Apart from two wonderful Hygge beads, the Instant Dancing Fairies Field, the Touch Pumpkin, I bought the Blossom Dangle Eastern Sea, the Blossom Dangle Taiga, the Blueberry Dangle (reminding me of wonderful holidays in Norway), the Winter Ashberry Dangle and the Instant Tokyo Skyscrapers Dangle. I am looking forward to these gorgeous beads.

  13. Elisa

    wonderful photos!!
    and…
    Oh. My. Gosh.
    Me too I would like to create my personal bead!! It would be exciting.
    I hope here in Italy some retailers will do it (near my home, surely) 🙂

  14. Beth

    Ah, such fun photos. What a treat to see all of you and our bead friends, plus everyone’s wrists! I am so sorry to hear you were sick, though. I’m glad whatever it was loosened its hold enough for you to enjoy the weekend. One of these days, I’ll get to the event in person, but I had a lot of fun participating online. I did maybe a little too well in the purchasing department, but I’m so pleased with what I bought. I was able to get two True Treasures – one red with white spots, and one neutral one with gold sprinkles — plus I took advantage of the True Beadz promo. Then, today, I was able to get two of the Hygge beads. Over the weekend, I also got a RandOhm – white with blue stripes and flowers. I’m anticipating some lovely beadmail!

    • endangeredtrolls

      Yeah I was a little bit panicked on the Thursday because I was so sick and all I kept thinking was “what if this doesn’t go away by tomorrow?” Anyway magic green pills from Russia, Starbucks and noodle soup eventually cured me 😀

      I’m so pleased to hear that you managed to get a couple of True Treasures at least. It was crazy how fast they went! 😀

      You absolutely should try and come along one day though.

      xoxo

      • Beth

        I left out a couple of words in my comment above. It should have said, “I probably did a little too well for my wallet.” I’m so happy about the Treasures and Hygges! I can’t wait to get them. 😊

  15. Martha Olavarrieta

    I love all the photos Victoria. It’s really great to see all of you together. I love the hair. It looks great on you. Now back to the photos. I noticed the Octopus bracelet again, and it appears to be something Ohm is working on? It looks like Kit is wearing the bracelet. I LOVE it. I hope they decide to produce it for retail. Everyone on Instagram is asking about it, but no one is saying anything. Best kept secret for sure.

    • endangeredtrolls

      I have absolutely no idea about the bracelet I’m afraid 🙂

      As for the hair – thank you! I’m still adjusting to it. I’m still having to sleep with various treatments and conditioners on it to repair some of the damage 😀 Though I’m getting it coloured again shortly and probably adding some different tones in there. Either way it’s going to be blue for a while now as it needs a break from processing. If I change it again in the vaguely near future it’ll have to be black :p

      xoxo

  16. Ashley

    Just now seeing all the exciting pics of the event. I wish I could have been there to shop my heart out on a lot of fabulous beads! Love seeing people’s bracelets and their personalities showcased.

    Do you know if they had a special event bead for the customers? I’m curious if there was a saught after bead. 🙂

    • endangeredtrolls

      Yeah there was the Ohm Beads OhmMyGod 2.0 and the True Beadz Hygge 🙂 Both sold out of course 🙂 There was also a few special promo beads 🙂

      xoxo
