Trollbeads Spring 2018 Inspiration with Jumbo Uniques

This Trollbeads blog brings a little inspiration in the vibe of the Trollbeads Spring 2018 collection, using the current Jumbo Unique designs.

The Trollbeads Spring 2018 collection was unveiled last week. It launches on January the 19th with pre-orders beginning on the 11th and I’m already counting down the days. The collection has an underlying peacock theme and the feather motif appears in both glass and silver. With the current Trollbeads Jumbo Unique kits featuring some lovely larger peacock designs, I decided to take the opportunity to make a bracelet.

Trollbeads Spring 2018

I’ve used two of the Peacock Feather Jumbo Uniques as the focal point, with the new Redbalifrog Pine Cone nestled in between. I’ve split this bracelet into segments as I’ve been doing a lot recently. Over the past few days I’ve seen a lot of collectors showcasing their old Peacock Uniques from the Small and Beautiful collections and of course I had to follow suit. They do occasionally appear in unique kits still but they’re few and far between. For those of you who want to experiment with this theme but don’t have access to those older uniques, I’ve included a True Beadz Dragon Eye glass. They’re not quite the same but they’re a good substitute and beautiful in their own right.

The Redbalifrog Peacock Wrapped Feather is going to be a must have to complement the spring release and you can find it at Great Lakes Boutique here.

Trollbeads Spring 2018 Summary

For those of you hunting the Jumbo Unique Kits. As per the article yesterday Great Lakes Boutique and Blooming Boutique seem to be the two stores to check. (We just listed a few more kits that do have the Feathers.) Trollbeads Akron’s last delivery went on their Facebook page rather than the website.

As always I love to hear from my readers. Has anyone else been inspired to try creating peacock themed bracelets yet? Hit the comments and let me know!

    I have been wearing my Peacock Jumbo Unique for the past several days now…but just by itself. I didn’t really think about putting it with anything else. Now that I have a Jumbo Unique; and I realize how much I love them, I must have more.

      Yeah it seems a few people have discovered that with the Jumbo Uniques. I’m just a little sad it took me so long to decide I liked them 😀

        You’ll just have to make up for lost time….the new ones should help!

    I took a while to decide I liked the jumbo too. I love the colors you put together here with the Redbalifrog silvers. Beautiful!

    Beautiful composition! I really like your mixing in the Redbalifrog silvers and the Truebeadz Dragon Eyes.

    Victoria, my only complaint is that you are making me like peacock theme beads again. 🙂

    And add me to the list of late to appreciate the jumbos.

      Why? Why why why why. Why did so many of us dismiss the jumbos. I’m kicking myself, particularly as I look back at designs from the spring of this year that I would love! 😛

      Oh well. You live and learn 😀

        I know!!! And you can not find the “old” ones anywhere. And they sell out fast! I can’t believe I just ignored them for so long. I blame amber – I just love searching for interesting amber beads, I have plenty but then I realize I “need” small chubby amber with lots of stuff in it, or whatever. I clearly I need to broaden my focus. Also, there aren’t that many online retailers who have it. I will have to be patient and hope for more peacock jumbos and there is another one that has been around for 4-5 months that I can’t seem to find. Oh well, I’m sure there will be more lovely Jumbos in 2018.

          Our last kits went in a few hours :O Of course they’re new but still. I’m so frustrated 😀

    Last night I went through all 35 pages of BBB’s uniques looking for ones I want. All sold or completely gone from there site 🙁

    I love the Jumbo Peacock uniques. I have a red and a yellow one and have gotten so many compliments on them. They look great on a bangle.
