News Round Up January 2019

This charm bracelet blog brings a summary of what we can expect in bead world during January 2019.

Belated Happy New Year! I want to try and get back into the routine of publishing monthly news summaries. Equally I wanted to wait until the dates for the two upcoming Trollbeads releases could be discussed. Welcome to January 2019.

Trollbeads Winter Sale 2019

The Trollbeads Winter Sale is ongoing as a spend more, save more format. It’s the first time the brand have experimented with this and it’s proven so popular within the community.

  • Spend $100 and save 10%
  • Spend $250 and save 20%
  • Spend $400 and save 30%

The Trollbeads Christmas 2018, Autumn 2018, Diamond Bead Amber and Snowflake Obsidian Facet are the exclusions but that leaves a huge selection of beads and jewellery pieces. Sadly it does end on the 12th so be sure to grab anything you need before then.

Trollbeads Spring 2019

A highlight for many during the coming month will be the global launch of the Trollbeads Spring 2019 collection on January the 25th. The brand have reverted back to advanced previews it seems which I much prefer because it gives collectors time to really look at the beads and plan their wishlists ahead of the launch. It’s a strong spring collection from Trollbeads, channeling a theme of the return of light and life to the natural world.

You can expect to see live images begin to appear with retailers one week ahead of the release.

Trollbeads Valentine’s Day 2019

The Trollbeads Lovebirds debuts globally for Valentine’s Day 2019 with a release date of February the 1st. Technically therefore this bead falls into February news but barely!

Ohm Beads Retirement January 2019

Last year Ohm announced that essentially every bead made pre-2018 would be retired in September. Ultimately the Typo collection was spared though they did mention they would revisit this in the spring. January has brought the news that the Ohm Beads Pteranodon Skull is now retired. It launched last January so it will be interesting to see if each new month will see the one year old beads exit production.

Ohm Beads Touch of Grey Final Stock

Though not an official retirement, last night the last of the Ohm Beads Touch of Grey went live on the Great Lakes Boutique website and at the time of writing just twelve beads remain.

Henhousebeads January 2019

For fans of Henhousebeads there is an amazing new design set to debut on January the 15th. The preview will be ahead of that, though I’m unsure of the precise date but watch for the first teasers over the next couple of days.

January 2019 Summary

First of all here’s the list of dates for your diary:-

  • Trollbeads Winter SaleOngoing
  • Ohm Beads January 2019January the 3rd
  • Ohm Beads Retirement January 2019January the 3rd
  • Henhousebeads January 2019January the 15th
  • Trollbeads Spring 2019January the 25th
  • Trollbeads Valentine’s Day 2019February the 1st

The above are confirmed dates. At some stage we’ll see the Ohm Beads February 2019 Collection preview. Ohm aren’t quite unveiling as much in advance as they once we’re but I’d guess we’ll see the previews during week three.

Considering we’re just days into the new year, that’s a significant list of things to look forward to and quite major releases too. I am personally so looking forward to the Trollbeads Spring 2019 collection and can’t wait to see the gemstones and Peacock Pearl in person. Beads that vary so much are obviously a photographer’s dream! I will also say that the new Henhousebeads January design is spectacular and definitely worth anticipating.

In other news at some point this weekend will be a large listing of Henhousebeads Scrambled Eggs. It’s by far the largest batch we’ve had to date and they are so striking. There will be a preview and definite time announcement here ahead of that so you won’t miss it.

Also this weekend (I hope,) will be a small release of The Palace of Amber Valentine’s Bears! These are super cute carved amber teddies that are so perfect for the holiday. We don’t have many but again there will be a preview and time confirmation here.

There are a couple more significant dates in January but unfortunately that’s nothing I can yet disclose. Fear not though, the wait won’t be too long.

As always I love to hear from my readers. What are you most looking forward to during January? Hit the comments and let me know!
