News Round-Up for September 2014

This jewellery blog article brings a news round-up for September 2014 featuring Trollbeads, Pandora, X by Trollbeads, Ohm Beads, Elfbeads, Chamilia and more.

Welcome to September! The fall season is always by far the busiest in the charm jewellery world. There’s such a small period of time between autumn and winter releases (considering the need to push the latter live in good time for the festive shopping season.) Further to that Halloween lands in October and many brands choose to honour this also.

What follows are the details of new releases and promotions plus a few snippets of information you’re unlikely to be aware of to date. At the end of the article is a quick check list of dates for your diary so skip forwards if you’re looking for the bare essentials.

This is a monstrous article and I do apologise for that. The sheer number of new releases and promotions is rather overwhelming at present.

Trollbeads

It’s a very busy month for Trollbeads and while I’ve already published the Trollbeads Autumn Winter 2014 schedule, here’s a recap.

Trollbeads Fall 2014 / Trollbeads Halloween 2014

The Trollbeads Fall 2014 and the Trollbeads Halloween 2014 collections are both debuting on Friday the 5th of September. This is a positively enormous influx of new beads but does constitute one of the major seasonal releases.

There are no official launch promotions accompanying the release, though Trollbeads NYC are offering a t-shirt as a free gift with purchase on spends of $450 or more.

Trollbeads Wings of Freedom

The Trollbeads Wings of Freedom is the celebratory fall launch event bead and will debut alongside the autumn collection on September the 5th in the US.

Trollbeads Fall 2014

For those of you in Europe fear not as the bead is set for a global release but we have a small wait. I’ll have more news relating to this tomorrow plus some exciting details regarding another special bead.

Trollbeads People’s Bead 2014

The Trollbeads People’s Bead 2014 winner will be unveiled on September the 19th. The Missing Bead will then debut on October the 10th.

Trollbeads Christmas 2014

The Trollbeads Christmas 2014 collection (sometimes referred to as the Trollbeads Holiday 2014 release) has a current release date of October the 17th. Traditionally the winter beads debuted in the first week of November but since X’s appearance last year, they release has moved forward. The expected preview date for this release is September the 19th.

I’ve seen a sneak peek of the new beads and we can expect a traditionally coloured red and green glass kit and a crisper and more winter feeling blue and white kit. I presume both to be limited edition. There is possibly a Christmas Tree glass bead in the blue and white kit but I’ll admit the image I’ve seen puts this bead out of focus so I don’t want to raise too many hopes. (I’ve literally spent a good ten minutes craning my neck to odd angles and zooming in.)

Trollbeads Gold Love Art

September the 19th (busy day) should also see the Trollbeads Gold Love Art release previewed though the release isn’t until October the 1st.

The release consists of four new gold beads and aside from the material used, there’s no common theme to the series. The designs are quite varied so I hope this should accommodate most gold lovers.

X by Trollbeads

The X by Trollbeads Strong & Free release recently debuted and I’ll be reviewing several of the new links in the coming weeks.

X by Trollbeads

There’s further news for X by Trollbeads fans however.

X by Trollbeads Free Links Promotion

Today sees the start of the X by Trollbeads Free Links Promotion for the USA. This is identical to the offer from 2013 where the purchase of a lock will award eighteen free rubber links. Excitingly however it includes the limited edition Ocean Blue Links.

X b yTrollbeads

Certainly for 2013 the fabulous Trollbeads Gallery offered this promotion so I’m assuming it will be the same this year. I’m just awaiting confirmation from my recommended retailers prior to publishing a news alert with ordering details. The promotion will run for the entirety of September so there’s absolutely no rush.

X by Trollbeads Stormy X Alive / X by Trollbeads Halloween 2014

When I first previewed the X by Trollbeads Halloween 2014 collection it was a little unclear as to whether the links would debut with the fall release or constituted their own distinct series.

The X by Trollbeads Stormy X Alive release (fabulous name) will debut on September the 26th, introducing four new links. Remember if you haven’t yet indulged in X but consider these must haves, the X by Trollbeads Free Links Promotion detailed above is the ideal way to get started.

Pandora

The Pandora Fall 2014 and Pandora Essence Fall 2014 collections debuted just last week with rich golden undertones.

Pandora Autumn 2014

Though the autumn release is a huge affair for Pandora, there are still key dates to anticipate during September.

Pandora Rose

The Pandora Rose collection originally trialled earlier in 2014 is seeing a wider release for fall (though it’s looking to be a concept store exclusive.) It’s official release date is October the 2nd but as Pandora tend to stagger stock distribution, I wouldn’t be surprised to see the products for sale earlier towards late September.

Pandora Bracelet Promotion USA

The Pandora free bracelet promotion hits the USA between September the 18th and 21st. For the first time the Pandora Essence Collection bracelets will be included, as will the Pandora Gold Bracelet. The spend requirements are as follows:-

  • Spend $100 (or $125 CAD) to qualify for a free Pandora Silver Bracelet, Pandora Bangle or free Pandora Essence Silver Bracelet
  • Spend $500 (or $550 CAD) to qualify for a free Pandora Duo-Tone Bracelet
  • Spend $3000 (or $3300 CAD) to qualify for a free Pandora Gold Bracelet

Pandora Bracelet Promotion UK

The Pandora free bracelet promotion for the UK was originally scheduled for summer and then delayed. It’s now set to run from September the 25th to the 28th.

  • Spend £125 to qualify for a free Pandora Silver Bracelet

Elfbeads

My blog has been a little Elfbeads crazy recently but many of my readers seem to share my enthusiasm for the new Dutch based brand.

Elfbeads North American Launch Party

The highlight of September for many will be the Elfbeads North American Launch Party and I’m so sad to not be there as I was originally scheduled to fly over with Paul and Suzanne.

The launch event runs from September the 19th to the 21st at Great Lakes Boutique and the associated promotions are incredible. With the purchase of any four Elfbeads qualify for:-

  • A free Elfbeads Bracelet
  • A free Elbfeads Treasure Chest Lock
  • A free Elfbeads Dragon Bead

Further to that every online purchase will award a raffle ticket with a draw to win a second Dragon.

I offered the world first preview of the Elfbeads Dragon last week, though at present only the gold glass version has been seen. The Dragon will be created in at least two colours (gold is definite, green seems likely but I have no idea what or if any further shades there are,) but which version you receive will be a surprise.

Further to all of the above those attending in person will all be entered into a daily draw to win one of the new Elfbeads Gold Beads.

Elfbeads Gold Beads

As part of the Elfbeads Fall 2014 collection comes 18k gold versions of some of their silver designs. The pricing hasn’t yet been disclosed but the team are adamant that the beads will retail far lower than the Trollbeads gold designs.

The first Elfbeads Gold Beads will be unveiled at the launch party in addition to the rest of the Elfbeads Fall 2014 collection. For those unable to attend fear not, I’ll be running some Elfbeads related content all weekend and will be offering upto date photographs from the event thanks to the fabulous Mike at Great Lakes.

Ohm Beads

Today sees the first release for the Ohm Beads Fall 2014 collection but it’s a reasonably busy month for the US based brand too.

Ohm Beads Talk Like a Pirate Day

The Ohm Beads Talk Like a Pirate Day collection has now debuted featuring the fabulous Flying Spaghetti Monster and Ahoy.

Further to that comes the latest charity charm in support of the Seattle Humane Society.

Ohm Beads Fall 2014

In addition to the above release comes a second as yet undisclosed collection expected around late September.

While the Ohm Beads Teddy Scares series doesn’t launch until October the 1st, I’m hoping to be able to offer previews prior to this date. Of course Teddy Scares constitutes the Ohm Beads Halloween 2014 release.

Chamilia

The Chamilia Season 3 2014 collection (or Chamilia Fall 2014 release) debuted in August and included the brand’s Halloween offerings.

Chamilia Season 4 2014 / Chamilia Christmas 2014

The first set of Chamilia Season 4 charms are expected some time during mid-September with the actual Chamilia Christmas 2014 release following in October. Hopefully previews of the first release will be expected soon.

Chamilia Free Bracelet Promotion USA

From September the 8th to September the 21st the Chamilia Free Bracelet Promotion hits the US. Spends of $100 and more qualify for a choice of:-

  • A free Chamilia Box Chain
  • A free Chamilia Silver Bracelet
  • A free Chamilia Flex Bangle

I’ll publish an alert in addition to ordering details closer once the event begins.

Frightlings

While the Frightlings brand have been a little quiet during the summer season, there’s a flurry of releases expected for the fall season.

Frightlings Autumn 2014 and Frightlings Halloween 2014

The rumoured and much anticipated Frightlings Werewolfling should be debuting for Halloween 2014. I’ve been desperately excited for this addition since it was first discussed in 2013 but the team weren’t happy with the end result and decided to re-design.

A second Frightling should be debuting during September though at present I can’t release details related to this charm.

Frightlings Teddies

Equally exciting is the appearance of the Frightlings teddies as again these have felt a long time coming.

Svane & Luhrs

The Svane & Luhrs Fall 2014 collection was unveiled last week and focusses on strong colours and dramatic patterns; all perfect for the autumn season! The highlight for me has been the new Cobalt Leather Bracelet.

Svane & Luhrs

The new autumn 2014 brochure is now available on the Svane & Luhrs website with the release also available to buy.

News Round-Up Fall 2014

Firstly as promised a list of dates:-

  • Chamilia Season 4 2014 Part 1 – Mid September
  • Ohm Beads Fall 2014 Part 2 – Late September
  • Ohm Beads Teddy Scares Preview – TBC
  • Frightlings Teddy Bears – TBC

Further to the above information I suspect we’ll be hearing news related to the Story by Kranz & Ziegler Autumn 2014 collection, the Lovelinks Fall 2014 release and the Noosa Amsterdam Fall 2014 schedule.

Personally I’m incredibly excited for the huge number of Trollbeads unveilings expected on September the 19th. Having seen a sneak peek of the Trollbeads Christmas 2014 release, I’m really anticipating that, despite my complaints about it’s early launch date. Lastly of course I’m pestering for information regarding the Elfbeads Fall 2014 release and will publish that as soon as I’m able.

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

    Fab round up! Thanks hun 🙂

    Will be using this to sit down and write a bead buying plan at some stage…

      I actually didn’t quite realise how crazy it was until I started to write this up. For those who collect most brands, this is absolutely mental 😀

    Victoria,
    Busy busy month so looking forward to the Elf release. Have heard good things about the Chamilia Bangle, have Trolls, Pandoras and would like to get one or two of these. Not so much into their charms any idea if one could buy a bangle towards the $100 spend.

    • endangeredtrolls

      I’d imagine it doesn’t matter what you buy providing it’s Chamilia 🙂

      I’ve heard good things about it myself but sadly, no stores here 🙁

      xx

      • Liz

        I have the Chamilia solid bangle and it brilliant, fits trollbeads, easy to put on. I wear it all the time with my Trollbeads bangle.

  3. Carolla

    Great job, Victoria! Thank you. I am most looking forward to attending the Elfbeads Launch party later this month. I so wish you could be there, but I understand why you can’t.

    • endangeredtrolls

      I can absolutely understand that! I think you ladies are going to have a great time.

      Hopefully I’ll have some Elfbeads fall release news for you in the not too distant future 😀

      xx

    Bat is high on the wishlist.
    I’m working on a “wild thing” bracelet, the eagle would be perfect for that. Teddy Scares interests me.
    I’m going to wait until mid-September before deciding on what to get.
    Unrelated to September releases, but the man has ordered the elf seahorse for me, yay!

    • endangeredtrolls

      I can’t wait to preview Teddy Scares – I’ve not seen it either yet. Whenever I think of the idea I just keep picturing something like the Frightlings charms.. but less dangley and less painted? I really have no idea but I’m so intrigued.

      I think waiting is absolutely the right thing to do. It’s too easy to get caught up in the excitement and then rush out and buy things and perhaps regret it a little. Well maybe regret is the wrong word but wish you’d prioritised differently anyway.

      You will LOVE the seahorse I’m sure. The detailing is just breathtaking!

      xxx

    • endangeredtrolls

      Oh and p.s. Yay for the man?! My boyfriend is buying me a new dress I just spotted when it’s released at the end of the month 😀 Assuming I get it.. it’s limited 🙁

  5. Liz

    What a month, I will be wishing away the days till 19th 🙂
    Looking forward to Elfbeads Launch party and can’t wait to see what they have for fall, I think Great Lakes are going to have to get extra staff in 🙂
    Trollbeads have got very good month, but I will have to wait till pay day for any I want, can’t wait to get my hands on the bat and the bear.
    I was looking at the designs for the people’s bead to other day, that’s another for the 19th.
    It’s alway good to see what OHM do. On Perlen there are two food charms for preorder.
    I am not bothering with Pandora or Chamilia they both have the same poor promotions in the UK again when you look at what they offer the USA, so I will spend my money on other brands.

    • endangeredtrolls

      I get so annoyed by the differences in promotions 🙁 I find it incredibly disrespectful and it’s that more than the actual “missing out” that irks me.

      I think the Elfbeads launch party is going to be amazing and fortunately for those participating online too. I’ll be covering as much of that as is possible 😀

      The 19th is going to be insane. I’m still half expecting those dates to change but they definitely listed the previews for all those releases on the 19th. I’m really looking forward to seeing the Christmas beads. I’ve had a sneak peek but aside from the colours of the glass I couldn’t really make much out. I still think there’s Christmas Tree glass though!

    …..And breath……

    😀

    • endangeredtrolls

      Ridiculous isn’t it. For what it’s worth.. I think this is the busiest month for the rest of 2014. At least it looks that way. October a little chaotic too but not quite this bad I don’t think.

  7. Randi

    Thanks for all the great information! I was wondering if you have any ideas on the new Disney Pandora beads?
    thanks
    Randi

  8. Sandra

    Victoria, do you mean that the purchase of 4 Elfbeads gets you the bracelet, the lock and the bead? Seems incredible!!

    • endangeredtrolls

      Yes, if you follow the link in the article it will take you to the blog post detailing the full promotions at the NA launch event.
