News Round-Up September 2018

This charm bracelet blog brings a look at the month ahead and includes Trollbeads, Ohm Beads, Redbalifrog, Henhousebeads, Palace of Amber and True Beadz.

Welcome to the start of the fall season and I am so ridiculously excited today! Autumn is the most beautiful of all the seasons for me as the leaves change colour to their staggering fall foliage. It’s the season of Halloween, of pumpkin spiced coffee, of open fires, jackets, scarves, boots, crisp nights, beautiful days and of course, new beads.

September is set to be an insanely busy month and I keep glancing at my calendar and wondering quite how it’s all going to come together. Ready for an overview of what’s to come this month?

Trollbeads Northern Lights Magic

Monday (September the 3rd) sees the pre-orders for the Trollbeads Northern Lights Magic, winner of the People’s Bead 2018 event. It’s the best glass I’ve seen since Wishful Sky and yes, it complements it perfectly.

For those wondering if it looks as good in person, it does. There is some variation in regards to both the size but also the pattern. I think we all knew that would never be a uniform bead but they are all beautiful. Unfortunately I can’t share live images until Tuesday.

Though Monday is the start of the pre-orders, please note this is stock image pre-orders only. Live image pre-orders begin on Tuesday (September the 4th) to account for Labor Day in the USA. For those of you who like to shop my live images, they’ll be live on Tuesday morning and we have an amazing selection for you to choose from. At the same time I’ll be showing the live images here and you won’t be disappointed.

The official launch is then on Friday September the 7th and this is when retailers can begin to ship.

Trollbeads Autumn 2018

The preview for the Trollbeads Autumn 2018 collection is on Friday September the 7th and pre-orders begin on the same day. I know many of you were expecting the preview weeks ago (as was I,) but Trollbeads have been changing how they handle their previews. The initial pre-orders are from stock images only. Those of you wanting to shop live images can do so from Monday September the 10th and then the launch (and shipping date) is Friday September the 14th. I know all of the dates get a little confusing.

Trollbeads Halloween 2018

The Trollbeads Halloween 2018 collection has identical preview, pre-order and launch dates as above and technically speaking it’s a part of the fall release (but my fellow Halloween fans know it deserves it’s own mention.)

Ohm Beads September 2018 Collection

The Ohm Beads September 2018 collection launches on September the 10th. I know some of you are confused about this. The date was originally the first and was then changed. Some retailers did not update their websites.

The release includes the Ohm Beads Astronargh as the Bead of the Month for September and of course this sees blind distribution. This is quite a hefty price tag for a blind bead but I’ve been privileged enough to now have the piece and it is amazing. I’m pretty certain it will become an Ohm Beads classic and that remaining stock will vanish very quickly once it’s unveiled on the 10th. If you don’t yet have yours, you can pre-order at Great Lakes Boutique here.

Also included is the Ohm Beads Suckers (this looks actually awesome in person, I’ll try and get out live images as soon as possible,) the Ohm Beads Pre-Wine (so lovely for fall,) the Ohm Beads Beasties and the Ohm Beads Heart Engine. Pre-orders for all of these pieces have started already.

Ohm Beads CustOhms Batch Two

The second batch of Ohm Beads CustOhms are due to begin heading to retailers around September the 10th. There was quite some confusion surround the first batch so allow me to clarify. These beads are offered to retailers globally. They are not a country specific release. That said there isn’t one strict release date either so if one retailer happens to receive them first, that does not make them exclusives. Retailers do not have to order CustOhms but you can always check with your preferred store as to their plans.

The second batch are the faceted dichroic designs and will retail at $70 each.

Great Lakes Boutique Bead Bash on the Lake

On September the 28th, 29th and 30th we have the Great Lakes Boutique Halloween Bead Bash on the Lake event and this time around it’s bigger than ever before. There’ll be a flurry of exclusive beads launching both in store and online and right now we’re doing our absolute best to get supplies onto the website.

It begins on the Friday at 10am and continues until Sunday. The online start time will be midnight EDT as Thursday night changes to Friday morning.

Trollbeads Pumpkin Caterpillar

For those of you attending in store the Trollbeads Pumpkin Caterpillar is our official event bead and I’ll be sharing live images of that in the next week. We truly do wish we could offer this bead online but we can’t. This is Trollbeads’ own rules and not our own. Please do understand. It will retail in store at $45.

Palace of Amber

The Palace of Amber is one of two new lines at Great Lakes Boutique for the fall season and we’re all so excited to be working with both. As the name suggests Palace of Amber specialise in amber beads but they have an exquisite line of gemstones too. Our original plans had been to focus on the in store launch for the event and then an online launch after. We’ve since decided we’re going to try and do a small online launch during the event. We also have some special news for this line in the next couple of days.

Henhousebeads

Much like Palace of Amber our initial plans had been to launch this line in store during the Bead Bash weekend. Again we’re going to try and offer a small number online over the weekend and the times will be confirmed. Please understand Henhousebeads is a single artisan and we don’t want to overwhelm her. There will be updates regarding this as we get closer and again, there’s a special announcement over the next week or so.

The Ohm Beads October 2018 collections will preview this month too and they are very strong so there is plenty for the Ohm Beads fans to anticipate too.

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!

    YES a date for the trollbeads autumn previewπŸƒπŸŽƒπŸ! It does seem very late though. Counting the days till we see all the pieces!!

    Is there something going on as far as the way in which they handle releases now? It seems like small changes happen every once in a while and I can’t help but wonder why. I don’t know if it’s just me, maybe I’m reading into it too much. Are they tightening their belt due to miss handling or are they trying to be neater about releases. Same question as to why jumbos are a “store only” purchase. Sorry my curiosity gets me sometimes, I get very anxious. When there are changes I can’t help but wonder πŸ€—

      The preview is later but the actual release date is more or less the same. We always seem to have a two week window in regards to the Trollbeads Fall 2018 release πŸ™‚ In regards to the previews… they’ve made some change this year. They’re trying to make the date that bloggers and retailers can show the collection all the same. They’re also trying to centralise their marketing a little more so their ecommerce sites also show it on the same day. There was a time going back last year where everyone had different dates.. bloggers, retailers, their own ecommerce.. I think they’re just trying to bring everyone into line.

      I am a little surprised that they want the pre-order and preview dates the same though I’m not sure why I’m surprised. Ohm have done that for years and it works for them.

      There are then two different dates for stock image pre-orders and live image pre-orders which gets a bit confusing..

      Jumbos are not store only. You can purchase online, just via social media or email and not websites πŸ™‚

        Gotcha, thanks for all that info. I do think it’s better to have everything released simultaneously. That way there isn’t too much confusion and some seeing before others.
        Counting down the days till we get to see everything 😁

    Hello! I’m a bit confused, wasn’t the astronoargh released today? It says the release date was September 1 on the site I ordered mine and I haven’t heard otherwise from them. And there’s pictures of the bead all over instagram?

  3. Stephanie

    That’s so odd that the new Argh bead hasn’t officially been unveiled yet when everyone’s posting their bead on Facebook and Instagram. Even beadoholic, the other bead blog, has been posting about it and what it’s packaging is.
    I’m super excited for the Fall Trollbead release! That’s the release I’m always most excited about and the X Jewellery release which just happened yesterday, I believe. So fun! I love the autumn too!

      That’s from the Ohm 10 event in Nola
