Trollbeads Mamma Mia Review

This Trollbeads blog brings a dedicated review of the Trollbeads Mamma Mia, the Mother’s Day 2018 glass.

The limited edition Trollbeads Mamma Mia is the Mother’s Day glass for 2018. It’s two predecessors, Mother’s Rose and Roses for Mom both sold out within weeks of being released. While more stock appeared of course, the Trollbeads Mother’s Day glass is gaining a bit of a reputation for enjoying instant success.

I have to confess when the preview first appeared for Mamma Mia, I felt it looked a little simple versus the aforementioned beads. Though I still stand by that statement, it is incredibly beautiful. Floral patterns aren’t my thing and I cringed a little at the orange. This was all until I had it on my wrist. It’s actually very wearable as the orange shade isn’t so overwhelming. This is how I’m currently wearing it.

The base of Mamma Mia is white and there are teardrop shaped patterns placed close to the core. These are a mix of blue and green and it almost feels like a continuation of the peacock theme from the Trollbeads Spring 2018 release.

When it comes to glass everyone is keen to know the potential variation. This is particularly vital with online shopping being so prevalent. We always expect variation in size due to the way beads are produced. For Mamma Mia you can expect some variation in the exact shade of the orange floral details too. They seem to vary from deep tangerines through to paler corals. The flowers are a little eclectically placed so the amount of the base you’ll see also differs from bead to bead.

Though I have been wearing the bead with pearls, I really wanted to try it with the Trollbeads Feldspar Moonstone. I adore this stone as I find it so very versatile. Many people feel it doesn’t vary and yet actually that’s incorrect. Not only do you see different colours but some of them are incredibly sparkly. For reference the stones I’m using here will all be listed at Great Lakes Boutique shortly.

The silvers are predominantly new designs from the spring release. I have sneaked in the Ohm Beads Teabag as I’m just loving this charm right now. There are also some Trollbeads Pearls, used just to break up the colour a little.

Trollbeads Mamma Mia Summary

I’m so surprised by this glass. I would never say orange is my colour. I love reds and they work so well with my pale skin but I’ve never ventured into the orange shades. I generally find floral patterns to be dated too.

This bead looks spectacular against the warmer tones of copper or rose gold so do remember to consider taking advantage of the Trollbeads Valentine’s Day 2018 starter bangles. They’re still available at just $69 but only until the 14th.

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

    I already knew I wanted this; Victoria, but when I see it on your bangles with the pearls…and there’s that amazing platinum bead….beautiful!

      For *me* I like it with the pearls. I so rarely wear full bracelets. I am going to try a bangle combination with the Feldspar Moonstones too but I quite like the crispness of the pearls. It feels right since it’s still so cold.

  2. Faye S.

    Oooh what a beauty! Such depth too.

    • endangeredtrolls

      Yes it’s very pretty ๐Ÿ˜€

  3. Kasia

    I was totally going to ignore this bead but you have inspired me with your bracelet. I dislike flower beads for the same reasons but this will be my first๐Ÿ™‚ Thinking of wearing it with the Feldspar Moonstones and the Ohm Italy collection; a Mamma Mia bracelet!

    • endangeredtrolls

      I find them so fussy. That really works for some people but for me it looks terrible so I’ve always tended to avoid them. I really like it on the bangles with the pearls but they could easily be substituted for the stones instead ๐Ÿ˜€

      Have fun shopping for beads ๐Ÿ˜‰

  4. Karen Horman

    WOW! I was right. GORGEOUS with the Feldspar Moonstones. I have 6 Feldspars so will need four of the Mamma Miaโ€™s. GORGEOUS!!!

    • endangeredtrolls

      You were right! ๐Ÿ˜€ Now you get the fun of choosing your Mamma Mias too ๐Ÿ˜€

  5. Martha Olavarrieta

    Wow!! Beautiful bracelets Victoria. Mama Mia is gorgeous, will need a few of them.

  6. Emma

    My favourite combo is feldspar moonstone & pearls or labs and mix of all, big fan of orange, just not the new mamma Mia, saying that I havenโ€™t seen them in real life

  7. Noemi

    I love flowers, so of course I have quite a few floral beads. I was going to pass on this bead but I think I need to have it ๐Ÿ˜‰
