Trollbeads Guiding Star Gold for Great Lakes Boutique Bead Bash on the Lake (Plus Event Summary)

This Trollbeads blog brings a preview of the upcoming Trollbeads Guiding Star Gold, the special edition design for the Great Lakes Boutique Bead Bash on the Lake. Included is a summary of the Trollbeads portion of the event

Earlier today we unveiled the Trollbeads Violet Caterpillar as the event bead for Bead Bash on the Lake. We sincerely hope it was worth the wait. That said we’re not finished with the Trollbeads related announcements. Aside from the Violet Caterpillar, the Trollbeads Guiding Star has been produced in an 18k gold finish especially for Bead Bash on the Lake and it’s beautiful!

Trollbeads Guiding Star Gold

Guiding Star was a popular design during the winter season (as star themed beads always tend to be!) With the Ohm Beads OhmMyGod being such an iconic design for Great Lakes Boutique, a star themed bead seemed an apt choice to have created in a special edition gold version. Further to that it’s open work design lends itself very well to a silver chain or bracelet as you get the beautiful duo-tone contrast.

Trollbeads at Bead Bash on the Lake Summary

There are just six of these for the event and it works so beautifully with both Vine of Dreams and the Violet Caterpillar.

Joining us during Bead Bash on the Lake will be Grace Chetta, who many of you event goers already know. Rachel will be there as our wonderful glass artisan and offering people the chance to make their own bead. The specifics of that will be announced next week. Finally Robin Aagaard will also be vising as a very special guest.

The Violet Caterpillar is of course the event bead, limited to five hundred (500) pieces and retailing at $45. Please note it is exempt from any promotions. The Guiding Star Gold will be our gold event bead. In terms of promotions, they are as follows:-

    If the caterpillar bead is $500 and is glass, I can’t imagine how much the Guiding Star gold bead will be, though, of course, I’d love to have one! Has Trollbeads set a price for the Guiding Star gold yet?

    • endangeredtrolls

      The Caterpillar is $45 :p

      I believe Guiding Star is just short of $450.

      • Joan

        Phew!!! You scared me with that price on the glass! So now, I REALLLLLLLY want the Guiding Star in gold. We’ll see how sharp my elbows and hips are at nudging others out of the way to get it :-)))

        • endangeredtrolls

          It’s very very pretty 😀

    Oh. My. God. This gold star is my perfect dream bead. I can’t wait to see it. 2 weeks!

    There are only six and you can’t get them anywhere other than this event? That’s ridiculous. What if someone who lives somewhere else wants one?

    • Elise

      I am quite sure that Trollbeads will produce any of their silver production beads in 18K as a special order so the fact that there will be six at the event for sale does not mean preclude anyone from a special order, just the more instant gratification of having one immediately. 😊

    • Joan

      That’s the point of event beads, though. They make them exclusive so that you will come to the event. Still, TBs does make custom orders of their beads in gold, so I don’t see any reason you couldn’t do a special order for that bead at any time that you’d like.
