Limited Trollbeads Vine of Dreams Preview (Updated)

This Trollbeads blog brings a complete preview of the upcoming and limited edition Trollbeads Vine of Dreams, the 2018 designer starter bracelet.

It’s become quite the tradition that annually (or bi-annually as it seems to be becoming,) we see a limited edition Trollbeads Starter Bracelet. These sets contain exclusive components and retailers are not permitted to split them. This series has given us iconic sets in the past such as the Faceted Aurora and the Good Luck beads.

In 2017 we had two sets, the Trollbeads Feel Good Bracelet and then later in the year the amazing Trollbeads Wishful Sky set.

Today sees the preview of the upcoming Trollbeads Vine of Dreams, the limited edition designer bracelet for 2018. It’s set to retail at $109 and comes complete with an exclusive glass bead, silver bead and lock. The bracelet launches on April the 20th with pre-orders beginning on April the 13th.

Hearts and flowers climbing the violet hues of imagination and spirituality.

We hereby introduce you to the Designer Bracelet of spring 2018. A limited edition consisting of a silver bracelet, hearts and flowers in both a new silver lock and bead – an abundance of hearts and flowers swirling into each other. The bracelet also contains a fantastic glass bead tapping into the year’s huge trend colour violet – with flowers and traces of sparkling glitter inside.

The glass has been seen in the past in uniques but never in such a beautiful colour (and evidently the community are loving purples recently given the hunt for the Trollbeads Lilac Diamond and Purple Diamond beads.) The silver bead looks to be an adaptation of Hearts Galore but as opposed to a ring of interconnected openwork hearts, there’s a flower. The lock has two hearts connected into an infinity sign which I find very touching.

Trollbeads Vine of Dreams Summary

I’ve always loved purple so the colour instantly appeals to me. This particular design with the additional gold is beautiful and those of you who follow me on social media may remember these were two colours I was wearing following the release of the spring collection. With this in mind I can’t wait to get my hands on this set.

I have traditionally kept my starter bracelets together and worn them as is. I find them light and comfortable which is my general objection to full charm bracelets. I am tempted to add a couple of amethysts to this combination however. It’s great news for collectors to see the price remaining at $109 after the Feel Good set retailer quite a lot higher. I’ve also found myself looking longingly at the Hearts Galore in gold specifically to add to this set.

Once I have a release date I’ll update the article and hopefully more images will appear to show the details on those components, though strictly speaking today is only the teaser day so I suspect we need to be patient.

As always I love to hear from my readers. What are your thoughts on the upcoming Trollbeads Vine of Dreams bracelet? Will you be pre-ordering? Will you wear it as is or add to it? Hit the comments and let me know!

  1. Katie

    I love the glass, but not the silvers. I’m just not a heart person. It is a nice set, but I probably won’t indulge. Still would love to get the purple diamond beads. I’ve been looking everywhere.

    • endangeredtrolls

      Aw I’m sorry that the silver and lock don’t quite work for you but I’m sure there’s something else not far in the distance that will πŸ˜€ That’s usually the way πŸ™‚

  2. Lola

    Oh, oh I’m going to be so broke in April. πŸ™ My daughter is a purple person, so that glass is definitely for her, and me, obviously. I particularly like the bit of gold color with the purple.

    I love starter bracelets also. I never wear a full bracelet. I generally like empty bangles, and for flexible bracelets I use one glass, one larger silver, two stoppers, and that’s it, and that’s really more than heavy enough for me.

    • endangeredtrolls

      Gold and purple is just such a beautiful combination and I don’t find it particularly seasonal either. It’s one I’d be happy to wear year round. I agree with you 100% on the weight of starter bracelets. I keep mine together and they’re worn as they come. I expanded my Wishful Sky a little but that’s about it.

  3. Genievre

    I will definitely be indulging in this set as soon as it is released. I love the lock,the glass and silver beads😊

    • endangeredtrolls

      Yes me too πŸ˜€ But.. I sorta want duplicates of the glass and I keep looking at Hearts Galore in gold. For a nicely priced bracelet set I’m sure getting out of hand just a few hours after the preview πŸ˜€

  4. Jamie

    I love that they keep making these bracelets. Great price and helpful for new and old collectors. This year is all about purple so it’s very fitting with the glass. Ultra violet is the pantone color for 2018 πŸ˜‰ I’m not a purple lover but I am interested in seeing the silver and lock in more detail.

    • endangeredtrolls

      If it’s the glass you don’t want, you’d also have a very easy time trading that away with another collector I think. Usually everyone is scrambling for the glass but don’t want duplicate silvers πŸ˜‰

  5. Maria

    I want duplicates of the glass and of the silver 😍 It’s just stunning!

    • endangeredtrolls

      I think many people will be feeling the same way πŸ˜‰ As I just mentioned to another lady, I’d like to have two of the glass, with a single gold in between… then a pair of amethysts flanking them… on a gold bangle.

      Yep. Don’t want much at all πŸ˜›

  6. Lynne

    I really like this one and purple is one of my favorite colors. I will be getting this bracelet. I just recently realized all my troll beads bracelets are the wrong size since I never wear them full so this will be my first right sized one too. I have really tiny wrists so hopefully I will measure right this time. Any tips for that Victoria?

    • endangeredtrolls

      If you aren’t planning on adding more beads, take your wrist measurement and then add no more than 1cm to account for the little space the beads will take up. At the same time do remember to add SOME extra length otherwise you’d never manage the lock πŸ˜€

      • Lynne

        Thank you for your reply Victoria. I will do that.

  7. Poppy Truth

    Wow! This lock is a must have to me – definitely! I don’t care about the beads, but the lock is a dream come true. Very well done, Trollbeads!!!

    • endangeredtrolls

      I’m sure you’d find it easy enough to rehome the glass at least πŸ˜€

    • Marie

      I absolutely love the lock too. Agree with you 100%.

      I really wish I had chosen this brand years ago.

  8. Faye S.

    Quite a lovely combination! I’m not always into flowers, but this glass is appealing to me and subtle and more sophisticated. And I’m already thinking of a way I can wiggle it into my “Guardians of the Galaxy” bracelets (yes multiple now having so much fun).

    • endangeredtrolls

      I hear you about the florals. I think they can look so dated. But this as you said is subtle. It’s also purple πŸ˜‰ (Which is a huge plus for me! :D)

  9. Linda

    Love this bracelet! Purple is such a great color and I was just able to score a purple diamond bead from a dealer in the Netherlands. Starter bracelets are such a good value!

    • endangeredtrolls

      I love the starter bracelets :O I was a little shocked to see some people complain about the price of Wishful Sky on social media. Okay actually really shocked. I thought that was incredible value for money.

  10. Pippa

    I like this glass bead too! Trollbeads is on a roll. And the lock is lovely – I’m not a big hearts person but this lock just looks so nicely sculpted – very nice lines and subtle. Also nothing poking out. Definitely getting one. Though I’d love a pair of the glass bead.

    • endangeredtrolls

      Imagine a pair.. maybe with a nice gold bead or spacer in between… and then flanked by two amethysts…. perhaps on a gold bangle? πŸ˜‰

      I know, I know. You hate me πŸ˜€

  11. Lisa G

    I love it! I have the hearts galore and some other gold beads I can use with it, thanks to Victoria!πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

    • endangeredtrolls

      Shhhhhh stop mentioning it… πŸ˜‰ <3

  12. Lisa G

    Will get it a bead bash. Am keeping a list.

    • endangeredtrolls

      Yep we’ll definitely have it! πŸ˜€

  13. Lee Davis

    Luv this 1. Is it $109 USD ? & How does 1 ‘pre-order’ ? This will be my first bracelet.

    • endangeredtrolls

      Yes it’s $109 and pre-orders don’t open until April. At that time retailers will have it on their websites πŸ™‚

  14. Michele

    I am purple person, will buy this set for sure.

  15. Suzy

    Oh so pretty and purple! I will definitely be getting one.
    I always buy the limited edition bracelet sets but almost never use then as I find full bracelets too heavy and use bangles most of the time too.
    I really want to get the hang of using bracelets with 4 beads or less, but when I try because of the diference in weight the lock and the beads all go the bottom (to the palm side of my wrist) while the bangle doesn’t flip like this. Does this happens to you too Victoria? Or do you have any tips on how to avoid it? I tried using stoppers to get the beads all together close to the lock, I tried different bracelet sizes… Thank you!

    • Lisa G

      I know you said you tried different bracelet sizes, but if you buy it small enough it shouldn’t flip. I know from experience. The bangles are the best for keeping the beads up. I don’t mind the beads flipping because I occupy myself moving them all around:)

  16. Elizabeth (Lizzie)

    It’s so pretty, I hope to pick up a couple for gifting, because I just LOVE to enable addiction, er, introduce other people to this hobby.

    “Feel Good” was a pretty one too, was it more expensive or did I just have other things to buy ? πŸ˜€

    As always, add $30 – $35 for a safety chain !!! (argh, ouch, I know, but it’s important)

  17. Caroline

    Verrry nice, can’t have too many purple beads! I’m in for sure.

  18. Suzanne

    In your post you show on the bangle a black or gray bead with a white looking iris flower. What bead is this? Love it!!

    • endangeredtrolls

      That’s one of the Jumbo Unique Lilies

  19. Tom

    Hi, do you know if it will be available in UK? Thanks

    • endangeredtrolls

      As per the article it’s global πŸ™‚

  20. Ashley Durden

    I definitely love this as purple is my favorite color. I just scored the golden cave, third eye, purple dot and lavender prism off of a secondhand shopping website for $22.00 that’s an awsome deal for authentic troll. They checked out as authentic so I’m excited. I want to get this if my budget allows, but if I cannot get the whole set I’d be happy to have the glass. Right now I’ve had to tighten the purse straps as my infant daycare nears $1,000 a month, but he’s worth it πŸ™‚
