News Round-Up October 2017

This charm bracelet blog brings my news round-up of what’s to come during October 2017. It features Trollbeads, True Beadz, Ohm Beads, Aurora Charms, Pandora and ACA Kreations.

Firstly my apologies for the delay in publishing this article and happy start of October! October is always an interesting month as we often see the first glimpses of holiday collections and this year is no different.

This news round-up focuses on Trollbeads, Ohm Beads and True Beadz though as always, do remember the information featured here is what I’m permitted to discuss publicly.

Trollbeads Gold Campaign 2017

Friday the 6th of October sees the start of the Trollbeads gold campaign for 2017. It features two new beads, the Trollbeads Celestial and Trollbeads Lovesome Spacer. These are both available for pre-order already but waiting until Friday allows participation in the campaign. Spends of $500 or more on gold Trollbeads (and I’m a little unsure if these needs to be one bead or spread across any,) will reward either a free bracelet with the Soft Wind of Change Lock or a free silver bangle and a pair of plain spacers.

Trollbeads Christmas 2017

The Trollbeads Christmas 2017 unveiling is scheduled for Friday (October the 6th) for what I believe is then an early November launch. I’ve seen the release and it’s absolutely lovely so do check back then for a complete overview!

Trollbeads Fest 2017

Next weekend (October the 6th and 7th) sees Trollbeads Fest hosted at Trollbeads Gallery. Their event bead is the lovely and very elegant black longevity. Once again it’s not yet known as to whether there will be excess beads available for online or not.

The promotions include buy three get one free, the free bracelet promotion and the free spacers promotion.

Trollbeads at the Beach 2017

October the 13th, 14th and 15th see Trollbeads at the Beach celebrated at Blooming Boutique. For this fall event they’re also launching the Amazonite Waters, the latest colour option for their popular and now somewhat iconic event bead.

As usual priority for those beads will be to customers in store. In previous years any excess stock has then been offered at $34 per bead with purchases of $150 or more. Whether or not stocks will be completely exhausted in store or not is impossible to predict but I will monitor that!

Associated promotions include a Trollbeads buy three, get one free, free bracelet promotion and free spacers promotion.

Aurora Spooky the Ghost

The Aurora Charms Spooky the Ghost now has a confirmed release date of October the 9th. Do remember that he’s already available for pre-order from the official Aurora Charms website, Beads Fanatic and Pianeta Beads.

Ohm Beads December 2017 Previews

October the 20th will see the unveilings for the Ohm Beads December 2017 previews and of course this includes the Bead of the Month. The Bead of the Month for December has been confirmed as the Ohm Beads Stardust and those at Great Lakes Boutique last weekend were treated to a live preview.

Ohm Beads Event at Star Bijou

On October the 21st, German retailer Star Bijou are hosting their first dedicated Ohm Beads event. They’ll be selling an exclusive charm called the Ohm Beads Lucky Stars.

True Beadz October 2017

October will see the latest True Beadz collection and though Julia has yet to entirely confirm the release date, it’s look like week three. As soon as previews appear for that, I will obviously share them. Included will be the new anniversary barrel silver that many of you have spotted on social media.

Pandora Disney European Launch

Tomorrow (October the 5th) finally sees the Pandora Disney collection launch into Europe! It’s quite a small launch, focusing heavily on Mickey and Minnie Mouse but it’s still amazing news for Pandora fans who have waited years for this!

Chamilia Classic Mickey & Friends

The Chamilia Classic Mickey & Friends collection is their season 4 Disney release and it officially launches on October the 16th.

It’s already available in the UK from H Samuelicon and Ernest Jonesicon. They will only ship within the UK but the charms are already reduced in price from their RRP. Alternatively those of you needing international shipping can find them at Beads Fanatic.

October 2017 Summary

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

One of the real highlights of the month will of course be the Trollbeads Christmas 2017 preview which has some amazing glass. I’m so excited to share that preview!

Once again there are still a few more interesting things during October that I can’t yet share so do be sure to follow me on social media at Facebook, Instagram and the Great Lakes Boutique Facebook and Instagram pages!

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

    Welcome back Victoria!
    Do you think the ohm team
    Would mind if you told us if the December BOTM is silver or glass ??
    Also, will there be an advance pre-order for the star bijou exclusive??

    • endangeredtrolls

      It’s silver πŸ™‚ And I have absolutely no idea what Star Bijou’s plans are at this time I’m afraid!


  2. Jamie

    Oh so close for TBATB!! Not sure what I will find but I’m eager to mingle and get some waters beads.

    I am SUPER EXCITED to see the Christmas collection 😍 I’m a Christmas baby, a few days before but still, so to me it’s the best time of year. One of my favorite bracelets is my white and blue snowflake! Even though I finished that one I’d like to make another πŸ˜‰
    From your words I’m counting the days till the preview. Honestly if I don’t buy much at TBATB I know I’ll have plenty to buy from fall and hopefully Christmas. It’s like I’m asking to spend money.. help!!

    Ohhh question, will there be a black Friday or limited edition bead this year or no??

    • endangeredtrolls

      I can’t comment on anything beyond Christmas πŸ™‚ I don’t want to get into trouble <3 πŸ™‚


      • Jamie

        Okay, I’ll patiently wait πŸ€— we can’t have you in trouble!

  3. Elise

    I am most looking forward to the Truebeadz release. That anniversary barrel is great looking. In the mean time, I will enjoy seeing the Trollbeads holiday release. To me, Trollbeads has really wowed me with the glass from Spring and Fall releases so I cannot imagine what Friday will bring! 😊

    • endangeredtrolls

      The Christmas release is strong again πŸ˜‰ I daren’t really say much beyond that though πŸ˜€

    Hi Victoria,

    Do you know what is happening with the Pre orders for the December BOTM. A retailer in my country and few others have already taken a limited number of Pre orders and I don’t want to miss out? πŸ˜•

    • endangeredtrolls

      The pre-orders should begin alongside the preview on October the 20th. I think it’s crazy they’ve started them already. Basically it’s because there was a live in store preview at Great Lakes last weekend. Suddenly some stores took the name and started offering pre-orders. The distribution isn’t blind. MOST stores aren’t doing this. Just wait to the 20th and make sure you like it πŸ˜› You’ll be okay!


  5. Desiree

    Looks like Red Bali Frog is not doing thier usual Oct. Sale this year? I’m bummed, it has become a tradition.

    • endangeredtrolls

      I don’t think so but honestly Redbalifrog’s prices are consistently so much lower than everyone elses that I don’t think it’s really warranted πŸ™‚
