News Round-Up May 2017

This charm bracelet blog brings a news round-up for May 2017. It features Trollbeads, Ohm Beads, Redbalifrog, Pandora and Aurora Charms.

Welcome to May! My news round up this month if late due to playing catch up after the Spring Bead Break event at Great Lakes Boutique. That said given the latest Ohmbassador update was published just last night, the delay is probably a good thing.

May is absolutely dominated by Ohm Beads. Without further ado, here’s what’s to come during May.

Trollbeads Universal Unique Leather Bracelets

Just last week the Trollbeads Universal Unique Leather Bracelets made their global debut.

The collection consists of new colours of the single wrap bracelets (though do please note these are too thick to use with classic cored Trollbeads) and each includes a Universal Unique glass bead. They’re retailing at the promotional price of $39. For those of you looking to shop, you can do so via Trollbeads UKicon or via my retailers below. Please note those offering live images are marked with a *.

On May the 24th the Ohm Beads Heart of Stone will be unveiled as the Bead of the Month for June 2017. It’s limited to one thousand one hundred and eleven (1111) pieces and will have a blind distribution. Actually the packaging has to be smashed for the charm to be unveiled.

Ohm Beads Rainbowed

Also unveiled on May the 24th is the new limited edition Ohm Beads Rainbowed. This is a standard limited release so the beads aren’t numbered nor the amounts declared.

The remaining charm previews include two gnome themed designs and a deep space inspired bead.

Pandora Spend More Save More Promotion USA

The Pandora Spend More Save More Promotion is making it’s return from May the 26th until May the 29th. The specifics seem to have changed somewhat so expect the full details at launch.

Aurora Charms Dragon Hatchling

Yesterday saw the launch of the new Aurora Charms Dragon Hatchling. It’s a super cute design that doesn’t flip and is compatible with all major charm bracelet brands.

You can order yours from the Aurora Charms Etsy page or from any of the retailers below:-

May 2017 Summary

Firstly here’s a simple list of key dates for your diary:-

I did mention that Ohm Beads were dominating the remainder of May. June the 17th is international Trollbeads Day 2017 but I’m not expecting to see much in the way of an advanced preview.

As always I love to hear from my readers. What are you most excited for during the rest of May? Hit the comments and let me know!

    My wish list for Ohm seems to keep getting longer. But i also want Auroras baby dragon. I have a thing for baby dragons. And I always look forward to Trolls autumn release too. So lots to look forward too. And Victoria, I did receive my Sakura and whale tail totem and absolutely love them both.

      I think everyone have the same issue with Ohm. It’s been so amazing to watch them grow over the years now and I know by the insane amounts of traffic they bring me on release day, just how popular they are <3

      I'm so pleased your beads arrive safely and more so that you love them! Have you had chance to wear them yet?


      • Lynne

        No, I haven’t worn them yet. I just recently moved and these last few weeks I’ve been a bit busy. I think today I’m going to put together a couple bracelets. I also want to get a leather bracelet too and my husband really loved the Ohm alien beads so I want to get him a leather as well.

        • endangeredtrolls

          Oh you moved! 🙁 I hate moving! It’s just awful! I’ve not had to do it in quite some time but prior to that I had a few years where I felt like a gypsy 🙁 The new Alien beads are amazing. I don’t have mine yet but I did wear Mike’s bracelet for most of the Spring Bead Break and the detailing on those charms is incredible 😀


  2. Katie

    Ok. I completely caved and bought the Aurora Dragon Hatchling last night. I admit to already having the Redbalifrog one. Oddly, I love both of them for completely different reasons. I love the Redbalifrog one – so detailed and realistic (well, as realistic as an imaginary creature can be) and I love the Aurora one – so cute and rather simple.
    I will have to halt bead buying for a bit. I still need to hold money in reserve, in case I can buy a Dragon/Phoenix bead. But, I also love the City Skyline beads that were teased at the Spring Break. And, I know that True Beadz must be about to release yet more amazing beads…. Sigh, I really need another job…

    • endangeredtrolls

      You are absolutely right. They are “different”. I mean.. we both know they are dragons but their vibe is totally different. The Redbalifrog version has lovely texture but there’s something *so* adorable about the actual dragon on the Aurora version. At least that’s my opinion 😀

      You might be able to spot some of the new True Beadz on my personal social media… 😉


  3. Paula, Gravesend

    I haven’t bought the last few Bead of the Month from Ohm but the new one sounds intriguing. I love the look of the new Alien beads. I also am looking forward to the Ohm emotion beads being released as well. I may indulge in a Trollbeads Unique leather bracelet as they look lovely. Who needs to eat?

    • endangeredtrolls

      I love the Emotions set. I really wanted several of the Anxiety to wear on the Trollbeads Tiara 😉

      The new leather are lovely colours providing you remember that there is no way classic cored beads are going on there. I’ve had “fun” even getting some of my True Beadz and Ohm Beads on :O


  4. Gene

    I have already spent SO much this month! If anything, I might do the Redbalifrog promotion because that’s going to end soon, and there are so many of their beads that I want. I don’t know… there are way too many good things happening all at once!

    • endangeredtrolls

      I think everyone is feeling very spent out after Spring Bead Break and Ohm are just dominating the new releases right now 😀
