Trollbeads Marble Halloween Inspiration

This Trollbeads blog brings a little Halloween inspiration starring the newly released Trollbeads Marble glass.

Today I’m finally returning to the Trollbeads Autumn 2017 reviews. Actually we’re skipping ahead a little and I’m sharing my first Halloween 2017 bracelet. I love this combination though it avoids the typical oranges and greens of Halloween. It does however utilise the new Trollbeads Marble glass in multiples so I’m semi justifying it as an autumn review.

Marble retails at $28, €31 or Β£25 and is reminiscent of the long retired Trollbeads Glass Stone pictured below.

Trollbeads Marble

Marble has a cream base with eclectic black markings and there’s a lot of variation in these beads. They’re incredibly striking to look at with a wonderful organic vibe for the autumn season.

It was during the preview phase that a reader mentioned they found the design to remind them of cobwebs and that visual has stuck with me ever since. For this bracelet I’ve used nothing but the Trollbeads Marble, interspersed by various Halloween silvers. It’s almost a pure Trollbeads bracelet but I have included the Redbalifrog Tree Branch Lock and Log Stoppers. In my mind I was picturing a spooky forest setting with trees draped in cobwebs and hiding various critters so the wood aspect of the lock and stoppers felt vital. As always there’s a bead index at the end of the article if you’re unsure of any design.

Trollbeads Marble Summary

This is definitely amongst my favourite of the glass beads from the fall release and it’s in the cheaper of the two kits too. It’s so striking in person and I love that this bracelet offers a less traditional take on Halloween that doesn’t rely on the more vibrant colours.

As always I love to hear from my readers. What are your thoughts on the Trollbeads Marble? Did you indulge in this bead? Hit the comments and let me know!

    Wow!! Absolutely gorgeous! This is a bead that I’ve been on the fence about (there were so many lovely beads in that release), but now that I’ve seen what you’ve done with multiples, it puts the bead much higher on my wish list. I miss having a local retailer of Trollbeads, because I really liked to see the actual bead before purchasing – this is a bead that probably looks better live than in some of the stock photos. Yes, there are many retailers that take photos of the actual bead that you buy, but I still prefer looking at things ‘live’.

      I do absolutely understand the issue with a lack of local retailers. Unfortunately we just don’t have that now and honestly.. I’m not sure I ever see us returning to it. Internet shopping dominates so much these days. All I can say is that I do know some of those retailers you refer to try their absolute best to keep a good service via live images. I’ve just listed twenty Marbles at Great Lakes and there’s an amazing variation in this batch. I know it’s not quite the same but we do try!

      As for the bead itself, it’s one of the stronger designs in the release for me BUT you’re correct, the entire collection was so amazing that I think prioritising is really really hard πŸ˜€

        Thank you for the warning about the live images at Great Lakes. I just bought two. They look lovely.
        Internet shopping is wonderful and a pain all at the same time. It is wonderful, because you can shop at stores that you would never physically visit. It is a pain, because I am very tactile and prefer to touch things before I buy (don’t even get me started about shopping for clothes).

        • endangeredtrolls

          This batch have been really nice πŸ˜€ I’m sure you’ll love them πŸ™‚

          I absolutely understand. I actually HATE shopping. At least in person. I buy 99% of my clothes online but I nearly always shop with the same brands so I know the sizing so well. I have to buy makeup in person but I usually avoid shopping like the plague πŸ˜€ But I understand that not everyone feels the same. I also understand that people have been stung even when shopping from live images. Accurately capturing colours with a camera can still be hard. Trying to stare at a photograph and work out if it will *really* match that bead you have at home isn’t easy either.

          Unfortunately though I do believe the day of small retailers is probably over. I just don’t think they can compete. Which in turn means online retailers need to be more and more creative when it comes to helping customers feel confident to shop online.

          At least that’s my opinion <3

    Oooo! Very nice. It’s quite elegant. It’s like something Miss Havisham from “Great Expectations” would wear. It’s creepy Victorian (which is, by the way, a high compliment in my book).

    • endangeredtrolls

      So pleased you like it! I loved this combination when I put it together. I knew I wanted to try a Halloween bracelet for Marble but I didn’t quite expect to like it this much πŸ˜€

    Lovely bracelet Victoria. I’m always partial to the spooky designs and finally picked up a Trollbeads pumpkin ;). The marble I bought unseen online is more stripey and less β€œmarbled”, but I absolutely love it just the same! I agree the marble bead is so organic and varied, but it works in so many themes. Just gives me another reason to collect more in the future!

    I love the Marble bead….haven’t gotten it yet, but here’s another bead that I would not mind having multiples of. The live photos are great because I would want them to be as different as possible. The proof of how good multiples would look is right there on your bracelet! It’s one of my favorites that you’ve done.

  5. Pippa

    What a great bracelet! I hadn’t really thought of using marble on a Halloween bracelet but it works so well.
    And I just had to pick up a couple more from those great live photos at GLB. Thanks!

    • endangeredtrolls

      It’s so effective for Halloween! πŸ˜€ I’m so pleased you liked the live images πŸ˜€ Tomorrow is Forest Mist day πŸ˜‰

        More temptation πŸ™‚
