Trollbeads Summer 2017 Preview

This Trollbeads blog brings a complete preview of the upcoming Trollbeads Summer 2017 collection.

A short time ago I published a preview of the upcoming Trollbeads Day 2017 bead, the Golden Rutilated Quartz. The bead is already in my database so be sure to add it to your wishlist.

It’s not the only upcoming release from the Danish brand however. The Trollbeads Summer 2017 collection is designed around the theme of the Dancing Butterfly. This piece was originally realised as a bead in 2015, created by artist Louise Rimpler.

For this summer season we’re seeing complementary jewellery pieces.

Trollbeads Summer 2017

The Trollbeads Summer 2017 collection will consist of the Dancing Butterfly Earrings ($45 / €41,) Dancing Butterfly Studs ($57 / €52) and most significantly for many of us the Trollbeads Dancing Butterfly Spacers (stoppers,) retailing at $92 or €84. For reference the Dancing Butterfly Spacers are only sold as a pair so the price is for a complete set.

Trollbeads Summer 2017 Summary

I adore the new Trollbeads Dancing Butterfly Spacers. I predominantly wear bangles so decorative spacers add a whole new element to design for me. From the campaign image below, they do look to be sizeable, focal pieces too.

As always I love to hear from my readers. What are your thoughts on the Trollbeads Summer 2017 collection? Are you a fan of the decorative spacers? Hit the comments and let me know!

    I really love the spacers, they are beautiful! However, trollbeads are pricing their pieces so high now that i just can’t afford them. I can only buy a few beads every year as it is, due to high pricing and shipping costs. I can see Pandora becoming more popular, as they sell heavier silver at fairer prices.

    • endangeredtrolls

      They are indeed beautiful spacers. I think they’re quite large, though I always struggle to get a real sense of size from stock images.

      I’m really sorry that you’re finding the pricing so prohibitive though πŸ™

      Ziska,
      I totally understand- trollbeadsakron does offer free shipping all over the world (FYI)

    I really like the spacers. The Big Butterfly has been on my whishlist for a long time now and I might buy it with the spacers for a Butterfly theme during the summer.
    It’s quite a small release. That’s better, less beads to buy πŸ˜‰

    • endangeredtrolls

      Yes and though they’re butterflies I think the execution is very different to Ohm’s recent designs, though the theme is the same. These are far more minimalist where as Ohm’s new butterflies have actually been incredibly intricate. Those Dancing Butterfly Spacers are an absolute must have for me I must admit πŸ˜€

      xoxo

      • Martha Olavarrieta

        They are beautiful, especially the spacers, which are a must, but Ohm did an outstanding job with their designs. Kudos to the Ohm team.

  3. Elizabeth (Lizzie )

    Interesting, thanks!

    What’s the difference between the earrings and the studs? I’ve been interested in TB earrings for a little while, and would like to see some examples of how they’re worn.

    • endangeredtrolls

      I’m guessing one set is to go on the composable earrings while the other set are studs πŸ™‚

      xoxo

    • Polly

      Yes, as Victoria says the earrings are a pair of dangles for the earring hooks – if you look at the image you can see the top right cut-out ‘dot’ on the wing edge (of the front butterfly – it’ll be the opposite on the other one) has a bevelled edge rather than straight like the other holes: that’s where the front of the earring hook will sit, so they’ll hang from that point at an angle. Should be a nice effect πŸ™‚ The existing (retired?) dragonfly earring dangles hang at an angle, which is rather pretty.

      • endangeredtrolls

        Hopefully they’ll release some campaign images which will show the difference a little better. Admittedly the stock images don’t help to clarify the situation πŸ˜€

        xoxo

    Pretty release. Are the butterfly spacers being sold as the pair? If so, the price is in line with previous releases. I would definitely like to have them on my bangle.

    • endangeredtrolls

      I just got confirmation that the Dancing Butterfly Spacers are being sold in pairs only so yes, the price is for a set.

      xoxo

  5. Carolla

    I am wondering the same thing. Is the $92 price for a pair?

  6. Carolla

    Never mind. I see that is the price for the pair.

    • endangeredtrolls

      Yes it’s for a pair πŸ™‚

      xoxo

  7. Polly

    I’ve always loved the dancing butterfly – that gold version is still on my lust-list! – so I love this release. The spacers are a definite for me πŸ™‚ But look at that final stock image – with the wings bracketing a small round yellow prism: it’s a Golden Snitch!!! πŸ˜€

    • endangeredtrolls

      Yes it is πŸ˜‰ I’ve just been chatting with someone else about that. Mine will have to go around a golden stone instead of a gold bead I think but they’re definitely perfect for a Quidditch themed bracelet or bangle πŸ˜€

      xoxo

      • Polly

        Oooh, how about a chubby round amber? That would look awesome! πŸ˜€

        Harry Potter aside, I do think these butterfly spacers are lovely. I think they’d be pretty with the TB Day 2015 glass in particular. Or some of the sparkle beads. Luckily I have a July birthday, so these are going straight on to my want-list πŸ™‚

        • endangeredtrolls

          And I do have some beautiful new ambers! πŸ˜€ I think they are lovely spacers too and honestly.. I just want *more* decorative spacers. Even those that perhaps don’t personally appeal to me I think they bring such a great extra design element to bracelets and bangles that more has to be a good thing πŸ˜€

          xoxo

      • eMily M

        Oh my, A Golden Snitch! 😍 I am shamelessly going to steal your fantastic idea, Victoria.😜 Looove it!

        • endangeredtrolls

          Snitch bracelets for us all! πŸ˜€

          xoxo

  8. Nereida

    I was looking at that bracelet thinking maybe I should try the dancing butterfly and then I see that they’re stoppers. I think I’ll have to try a pair, and the bee stoppers, though those wings will probably keep me from being able to stack bangles.

  9. Gene

    I love butterflies and I love these spacers! I will put them on the long list with the Sweet Berries and Bumblebee.

  10. Beth

    Oooh, I like the spacers! They’ll be going on my list for sure. I’m not too chuffed by the price, either. It comes out to $46 each, which is about the midpoint for TB spacers these days. It’s the same price as a single Water Lily or a Sweet Berries spacer. I’ll be interested to see how you style them, Victoria, especially if you’re able to do it along with the Ohm butterflies. And I positively adore the Golden Snitch idea!

    • endangeredtrolls

      Yeah I think mine will be going on a Golden Snitch bangle πŸ˜‰ At least for “me” but I will try and do some cute butterfly themes for the summer! I think they look quite large.. what are your thoughts?

      xoxo

  11. Sonya

    Love the butterfly spacers! πŸ’œπŸ’œ

    • endangeredtrolls

      Yes me too πŸ˜€ And actually the pricing isn’t bad when you consider it’s for a pair rather than a single spacer. They look pretty large too I think?

      xoxo

  12. Louise

    Is this the entire summer release? No glass or stones? I don’t much care for butterflies as jewelry so hope you’ll tell me there’s more. But if it is only 3, it’ll give me more for TrueBeadz LOL.

    • endangeredtrolls

      Yes it is BUT there are apparently some new unique kits coming for summer. Obviously uniques don’t really have a set release date so they’re not part of the summer release.. but they are due. The only stone is the Golden Rutilated Quartz for Trollbeads Day πŸ™‚

      xoxo

      • Louise

        Oh well, I’ll watch for the uniques. Maybe Trollbeads is gearing up for an incredible Fall and Halloween release, I hope I hope! For now I’m off to Russia

        • endangeredtrolls

          I will tease what I have of the new uniques early in the week I think. I have other articles planned for this week and the last few days have been *so* busy!

          I’m also hoping they’re planning an amazing autumn because Trollbeads feel like they’ve been very quiet so far this year.

          xoxo

          • Jamie

            Oh yayyy new uniques! Those seem to keep me motivated and help tie my bracelets together perfectly πŸ™‚ I do like what I’ve been seeing lately of recent uniques but I still have my heart set on some “older” ones… it’s a tough one to do but I’ve managed to get my hands on at least one of everything I’ve liked so far except one!
            And I do hope we see some amazing designs for fall, and lots of them!! A flood of fresh designs would be wonderful πŸ˜€

  13. Kate

    The butterfly is beautiful, but I’m
    disappointed! This is the whole summer release? I would have liked to see more designs. If you don’t want a butterfly, there really isn’t anything here for you.

    • endangeredtrolls

      Yes this is the entire summer collection though there will be new unique designs for the season too. Check back tomorrow for a teaser of some of those <3 πŸ™‚

      xoxo
