Trollbeads Jumbo Unique Flower Kit Inspiration

This Trollbeads blog brings a little inspiration starring the new Trollbeads Jumbo Unique Flower design.

Regular readers will know that I relatively recently discovered an appreciation for Trollbeads Jumbo Uniques. As someone who prefers smaller glass, I’d always assumed these wouldn’t be my kind of thing. It was only when some appeared on my desk that I actually had chance to sit and play with them and it proved a slippery slope to addiction.

Late last year some kits appeared with a new flower design and they’ve proven incredibly popular with collectors. Here’s my latest bracelet design incorporating one of these kits.

Trollbeads Jumbo Unique Flower Kit

All of these beads came from one kit. Not all kits have a complementary colour scheme but some do and I fell in love with this set. Though the Snowflakes don’t seem to be a particularly sought after design I really like them, though perhaps part of that is due to my love of the winter season.

The bracelet includes the Redbalifrog Peacock Wrapped Feather beads that I’ve been wearing again in anticipation of the Trollbeads Spring 2018 collection, (remember pre-orders begin at midnight tomorrow!) This bead is now actually back ordered at Redbalifrog USA so I’m assuming quite a few collectors have rushed to buy it. It’s not a full bracelet which is a personal preference for me but the larger glass mean it still looks quite busy on the wrist.

Trollbeads Jumbo Uniques Ordering Details

The recent Jumbo Unique Kits have been really popular. Great Lakes Boutique and Blooming Boutique tend to be the two stores to watch for these beads.

Trollbeads Jumbo Uniques Summary

With the Trollbeads Spring 2018 pre-orders beginning on Friday (but again do remember retailers cannot ship until the release date of January the 19th,) it’s going to be fun watching to see if more unique designs appear. There have been some lovely Peacock Feather Jumbo Uniques recently which are ideal for the new collection but I can’t help but ponder if we’ll see new styles of classic uniques too.

As always I love to hear form my readers. Have you managed to find one of the new Trollbeads Jumbo Unique Flowers? Do you prefer the smaller classic uniques? Which of the Jumbo Unique designs are you currently coveting? Hit the comments and let me know!

    I thought I didn’t want anything to do with the Jumbo Uniques, but that has changed now. I have a red Jumbo Peacock Feather and it has become one of my favorite beads…I wear it alone though. The Jumbo Unique Flower is my favorite one from this new group….the only problem is I don’t want a kit. I’m not sure that will happen. Something I’ve become hooked on recently is pretty much the opposite extreme and that would be the Small and Beautiful collection. I’ve been reading everything I can find that you wrote about them.

      The “kit” issue is always going to be there I think. It’s a really unfortunate situation all around and one I see very much from both angles.

      For me it depends on the kit. If it’s really good.. one bead is free…. so…

      The Small and Beautiful collection were beautiful but very long gone!

        ”Small” uniques seem to be appearing in the US market, they are definitely smaller than the main releases and uniques. I completely expect these little uniques to actually be from the Small and Beautiful line – I don’t know if they are remnants from the old designs (I’ve seen the design you referenced once as “Koi Pond”), or a continuation of the concept, or both.

        • Gene

          I’ve found several Small and Beautiful beads now from very reputable Trollbeads retailers. I’m sure there are some that will be impossible to find, but I’ve got a start. And a big part of the fun for me is the hunt.

    I love the critter beads so I was over the moon to see the jumbo versions. Unfortunately we cant get any of them in from the UK retailers so I have resorted to buying from the main USA retailers. After much dissapointment I have managed to buy a mixture of dragonflys, lizards, even one purple frog but I also have some of the non critters which complement the other beads. Mixing the jumbos with the standard size beads looks great on the bangles.

      Yeah it’s sad that they aren’t really available outside of the USA but thank goodness for those retailers shipping globally.

      I remember when people went crazy over Dragonflies but recently they don’t seem as popular which is a shame (though good for those who still want them 😉 ) I love the frog I must admit 😀

    Agree with Gene. Wasn’t a fan of the jumbos as I prefer smaller glass, but oh my, they are SO beautiful and the fact that I keep seeing them on here and IG 🙄😉-dangerous to my wallet. That flower and some of the newer critters on transparent glass are just so amazing. A kit of them would be pushing it, but then again I have indulged stranger bead impulses!

    • endangeredtrolls

      I always liked my glass small and chubby so it made no sense I’d like these but ohhhhh they’re so pretty! 😀

    I’m really getting into the jumbo beads but I wish Trollbeads didn’t insist on selling them in kits and I can see why retailers don’t want to break them up. At least with most of the ones I’ve seen you get 2 highly desirable beads, i.e. a peacock feather and a critter and as noted above one is free. I have definitely gotten some beads I know I will never use and at some point I need to figure what to do with my extras. But I have gotten some really stunning beads 🙂
