Trollbeads Day 2019 Preview (Trollbeads Brush of Blue)

This Trollbeads blog brings a complete preview of the upcoming Trollbeads Day 2019 collection, officially marketed as the Trollbeads Brush of Blue.

June the 15th sees Trollbeads Day 2019 celebrated globally and it’s been so much fun to watch this evolve. For those who have followed the evolution of Trollbeads Day, this year was always going to prove interesting due to the materials involved. Thus far each year has seen a bead created in a different material. Let’s recap.

Trollbeads Day was first celebrated in 2014 with the silver trolls design. Trollbeads Day 2015 was faceted glass. 2016 was the solid gold clover. 2017 was the Trollbeads Golden Rutilated Quartz. 2018 was of course Wings of Amber and this left an interesting question mark over 2019. Would they go with duo-tone, though strictly speaking not a unique material or would there be a surprise in store?

There’ll be no pre-orders for this collection but you will be able to find our landing page dedicated to the countdown via the link below a little later today:-

Trollbeads Day 2019 is a porcelain or china bead kit and officially called the Trollbeads Brush of Blue Kit.

Trollbeads Day 2019 Summary

Why porcelain? Aside from the fact it is a new material and is bringing something quite unique to the line, it could have been inspired by Royal Copenhagen Pottery. Royal Copenhagen dates back to 1775 and is still hugely popular (and collectible) in Denmark.

Moving away from possible inspiration the colours are incredibly fresh for the summer season. The campaign images have focused on styling it both on leather and also with the upcoming Trollbeads Summer 2019 gemstones, (I’m so excited for these!)

I’m so excited for the summer season! We’re now just one week away from the launch of the Trollbeads Summer 2019 collection and those neat new gemstones. Incidentally we’ll be hosting a weekend long online event at Great Lakes Boutique to celebrate the launch. Following that we’re going to see the Trollbeads Day 2019 collection introduce this new material.

As always I love to hear from my readers. What are your thoughts on the Trollbeads Day 2019 release? Hit the comments and let me know!

  1. Sheila

    These are just up my alley. Blue is my favourite colour and these are just so different to any other beads. I love them. I want them all. Did I mention that I love them? I wonder how they will wear being porcelain and not glass? But I don’t care they are so bright, fresh and clean looking. I have so many beads that will go with them. I did mention that I love them didn’t I? lol lol The price of such beauty frightens me though ☹️

  2. Tracey J

    These are utterly beautiful 🥰
    I collect all blue & white porcelain objects from milk jugs to porcelain balls to plates.
    I just love it all!!!
    I will have save hard for these with the exchange rate of the Australian dollar they will be well over $530 eek! 😩
    Vegimite sandwiches for dinner here we come 😊

  3. Marisa

    What a beautiful set of beads. But that price, ouch!

  4. Nina

    It’s a piece of porcelain with a blue sticker,
    Very inexpensive tot make so the price is really shocking.
    I love trollbeads but this is to much!

  5. Helene Tind

    I really like them, reminds a bit about Royal Danish China but they are way way too expensive.

  6. Corrie

    They are gorgious and pricy too;-) I wonder if the blue paint will last, and doesn’t come off?!

  7. Lola

    I like these, but as they remind me a little too much of a tea service, which brings to mind old ladies, I’ll probably avoid them. Lol.

  8. Martha Olavarrieta

    Wow!!!! These are absolutely gorgeous 😃I need the whole set for sure.

  9. Noemi

    I have never bought a set of trollbeads glass this will be my first set! These are beautiful!

  10. Jamie

    Wow. Not sure how else to put it. These are beautiful and very different. I am curious about their durability though. But I just cannot get past that price OUCH! I’m happy to see, hopefully, they will be sold individually. That in itself brings a problem because you can tell some will be more popular than others and that’s why stores refuse to split kits. I still have yet to buy any trollbeads day beads because I just didn’t like it or the price. But aside from all that its refreshing to see such a coveted style. Very light and simple yet elegant.

    I used to work in fine China and porcelain is a very durable material and along with bone China the strongest of the different types of pottery. That is because both are fired at the highest temps for pottery. The higher temps result in a stronger product.
    The potential problem comes with the glazing due to possibility of abrasion. I almost wish the beads were round, so taller beads could help protect the porcelain ones from abrasion. That said a lot of other bead materials are subject to abrasion also. The degree really depends on use and how much care the owner gives. Hope this helps. The beads are beautiful and highly reminesent of Denmark’s Royal Copenhagen Blue Fluted pattern.

  12. Corrie

    Delft blue comes to my mind too!

  13. Pat Steiner

    The blue is not paint. There are several ways the blue cen be applied. There is hand painting, decal and transfer printing. The designs have slight variations then it is hand painted, like Royal Copenhagen “Blue Fluted”. If there is no variation, then it is most likely either transfer ware or decal.
    Regarding Delft ware, it is not as highly fired as porcelain In most cases and the background color tends to be creamier in tone as opposed to porcelain which is a starker white with a slight grey tinge to the color.
    Both arose from Europeans trying to duplicate Chinese blue and white wares.

  14. Pat Steiner

    An additional comment to the above. The decoration is applied to the piece after the first firing. After the decoration is applied, it is glazed and refired. So the design is under the glaze and will not rub off.

  15. Lisa G

    I struggle to see how these differ significantly from the uniques of this type. That said, the patterns are beautiful and I would be most interested in these as a set, despite the high price.

  16. Corrie

    Thank you for your explanations Pat!

  17. Mary B

    A lot of Trollbeads specialty beads are $56 so this price likely reflects the 10% price hike taking place in June. They are expensive but oh so tempting. Porcelain and china can be very durable…. think of those old porcelain door knobs and cabinet knobs that have been around for over 100 years and are still in fine condition. My favorite is vine and plum tree… and the shots of the new round gems are so enticing along with them.

  18. Angie

    The porcelain and especially the color are perfect for summer and they look fabulous with lapis. I can’t wait to see more!

  19. Maria

    I don’t like them, really don’t like them at ll! They might go well with the “pandoraisch” round beads that I also didn’t like!
    And now that the silver beads get smaller and smaller all the time and the designs are less strong than they use to be I’s getting time for me to say Bye Bye Trollbeads.
    Also around my place there are lately so many jewellery stores that stop selling Trollbeads because there is no demand any more, such a pity I like to shop in stores.
    On the positive side I’s good of my bank balance.
    Time for something new.😃

      Your comment is bang-on. How old are you? I ask, because when I showed these beads to my 29-year-old daughter, who normally loves Trollbeads, she said, “Yuck. That’s something grandma would wear. She had plates like that.” Her girlfriends had the same reaction. These are beads for old ladies, they all said. I’m 50, and while I like these, I’d never ever wear them; I’d feel far too old. 😀 But, I’d love, buy and wear this same idea in red, gold, any solid, brilliant colors that weren’t afraid to be colors. This blue is far too timid.

    Hi Lola,
    My grand daughter is about the same age as your daughter, believe me I’m old 😃
