News Round-Up November 2016

This charm bracelet blog brings my news round-up for November 2016. It features Trollbeads, Pandora, Redbalifrog, Ohm Beads, True Beadz, ACA Kreations and Chamilia

Welcome to November and where did 2016 go? Needless to say this month is going to be rather busy as brands rush to market their Christmas collections and promotions in good time for the holidays. With so much happening it can be really difficult to try and plan wishlists and prioritise purchases so I’ve tried to cover everything as clearly as possible here. It’s a long article but it’s worth the read if you want to be absolutely upto date on everything that’s to come in November.

Trollbeads Christmas 2016

The Trollbeads Christmas 2016 collection is launching on Friday (November the 4th.) The link just above is the most comprehensive coverage you’re going to find of the release. It includes stock, campaign and inspirational images alongside prices for the USA, UK and Europe.

For those of you keen to pre-order your beads, here’s a list of my recommended retailers. Those selling from live images are marked with a *.

Trollbeads Daylight Brilliance / Trollbeads Black Friday 2016

Launching on November the 25th is the Trollbeads Daylight Brilliance, Black Friday 2016 Bead. It’s set to retail at €51, $56 or £45 but I’m assuming there will be a Black Friday offer like last year. In 2015 the price was reduced by 25% for the holiday weekend, setting it at €38.25, £33.75 or $42 but please note there is absolutely no confirmation yet that the same will occur this year.

Trollbeads Day Promotion at Beads Fanatic

Spanish retailer Beads Fanatic are hosting their first Trollbeads Day promotion from November the 4th to November the 5th. It takes the form of a free bracelet offer and of course they ship globally. For the duration of the event shipping within Europe will be free. I’ll publish a news alert as soon as the offer begins.

Pandora Black Friday 2016

The Pandora Black Friday 2016 charm launches on November the 25th. This year it’s no longer exclusive to the UK which is incredibly exciting news for collectors. It’s retailing at $70 and as of yet I’m unsure of the pricing for other markets.

For the USA the Pandora Unique Snowflake Bangle will be available as a free gift with purchase during Black Friday weekend. Spends of $125 will qualify for the bangle free of charge.

Ohm Beads November 2016 Collections

Today saw the launch of multiple new releases for Ohm Beads. This included the Typo collection, Tom the Dead (Bead of the Month for November 2016,) Holiday Drinks 2.0, Gratitude Quote (only available via Charms-Life) (available in silver or duo-tone) and the Tulip.

Of these releases Tom the Dead and the Holiday Drinks are limited editions but the Bead of the Month is the charm to focus on in terms of it’s rarity.

Ohm Beads Black Friday & Cyber Monday Promotions

Much like previous years Ohm will be celebrating Black Friday and Cyber Monday with promotions. The Black Friday offers will be in store only and run from November the 25th to November the 27th. The Cyber Monday promotion will be available to online retailers and that lands on November the 28th. Both will feature a blanket reduction on select products (50% off retired designs, 25% off current collection charms.) The exact list of products will vary between retailers.

Ohm Beads Bead of the Month December 2016

Absolutely nothing is known yet of the Ohm Beads Bead of the Month for December 2016, aside from the fact that it will be festive! The preview lands on November the 15th and obviously I’ll be covering it as usual.

On the same day we’ll see a preview of two upcoming designs exclusive to Ohm Beads Thailand. Both of these releases will debut on December the 1st.

Ohm Beads Night Before Beadmas

November the 29th and 30th will see the Ohm Beads Night Before Beadmas event. Right now I have absolutely no further details.

True Beadz Russian Lullaby

As of this morning Julia has given me a confirmed release date of November the 28th for the True Beadz Russian Lullaby collection. Though we’ve yet to see stock images, Julia did treat us to this delicious teaser showcasing the grey glass and the limited edition True Beadz Goldie. I am hoping to receive stock images tonight so all being well there should be a complete preview tomorrow!

True Beadz Pumpkin & Castle Stone Changes

Earlier this week it was announced that the True Beadz Pumpkin and Castle Stone colours are changing slightly, presumably due to the availability of the glass. The Pumpkin will be slightly brighter and more orange while the Castle Stone will be a little more grey in colour. These beads are now marked as out of stock on the official website while Julia arranges new stock images. Great Lakes Boutique still have stock of the original versions so be fast if you want those.

I will be showcasing comparisons as soon as the new versions arrive with me.

ACA Kreations Retirement Collection

On November the 12th Alex will launch his next retirement collection. This is a small number of very limited, special edition versions of retired beads. The designs featuring are as follows:-

Stock images of the Open Mandala Sphere and the duo-tone Aers should hopefully be available soon. I’ll be publishing an alert one hour prior to the products being available to buy (which is midnight between the Friday night and Saturday morning.)

News Round-Up November 2016

Here’s a simple list of dates for your diary:-

Further to that I’m expecting to hear news regarding the Redbalifrog Christmas 2016 collection imminently. Presumably we’ll also see an X Jewellery Christmas 2016 collection too.

Since the surprise unveiling of the Trollbeads Tiara I’ve received numerous emails and messages asking me for a complete preview of the Trollbeads Spring 2017 collection. Given it doesn’t launch until January the 20th, I’m not expecting to see those pictures until December.

I’ve been working ridiculously long hours to bring the database upto date (the Pandora Christmas 2016 charms will be live on release day,) ahead of the holidays. Do remember you can use it to both craft a wishlist and track your own jewellery collection. In addition wishlists can be shared via social media or email and given they have click to buy links, it’s super easy to give family or friends very easy to use guides for expanding your collection. If you need instructions on using the database, you’ll find those here.

As always I love to hear from my readers. What are you most looking forward to during November? How does your wishlist currently look? Hit the comments and let me know!

  1. Gene

    What I’m most looking forward to (other than Alex of course) is True Beadz Russian Lullaby. I absolutely love the grey glass and I think it would be a nice way to start a collection. As far as my wish list goes…No comment!

    • endangeredtrolls

      They’re the two I’m most looking forward to now as well. Thought I’ve learned that Ohm Beads tend to throw my best plans into chaos 😉


  2. Elizabeth

    Any hints what the Ohm Black Friday and cyber Monday offers will be? Thanks! I could remember what I had planned for November 12 but I knew it was important, silly me!

    • endangeredtrolls

      Absolutely no idea!

    • Nereida

      Last 2 years they’ve had 50 off retirement on Cyber Monday and in stores on Friday.

      • endangeredtrolls

        Yeah and that could be why they announced the retirement now but as I’ve had zero confirmation it’s all speculation for now.


  3. Paula, Gravesend

    I’ve already had an expensive month ordering some Ohm beads and it’s only the first day! Can’t wait for Alex’s releases as well. Love Julia’s beads so the Truebeadz Russian Lullaby release is well up on my wish list. Oh well need to go on a diet anyway!

    • endangeredtrolls

      You know it’s a good month when you’re spending on day one 😉


  4. Nereida

    Special edition aers up on FB ACA!

  5. Angel Soto

    Hi, just an observation. I no longer see Elfbeads featured or highlighted in your blog, is this correct?

    • endangeredtrolls

      Correct. I currently have no business relationship with Elfbeads. Whether that will change or not in the future I do not know but certainly not for the remainder of this year.

  6. Ange Soto

    I hope they do because your blog is how I was introduced to their product and how I find out what is new. It would be to their benefit. I believe you do a wonderful job on keeping us all up to date on everything beads. Thank you,

    • endangeredtrolls

      Thank you Ange <3 That's really kind of you to say 🙂
