Trollbeads Wings of Amber Debuts

This Trollbeads blog alerts readers to the launch of the Trollbeads Wings of Amber for Trollbeads Day 2018.

Happy Trollbeads Day 2018! Today finally sees the launch of the beautiful Trollbeads Wings of Amber as the official bead of Trollbeads Day 2018.

For the benefit of anyone new to the brand, Trollbeads Day is an annual event celebrated with a limited edition bead. These beads all have the year marked on their core and some retailers choose to host events.

Trollbeads Wings of Amber

For 2018 the design is the Wings of Amber. Trollbeads have a long history with amber but it’s the first time I’ve seen this technique employed. Amber is notoriously delicate to work with so to see it drilled in this fashion is quite surprising. The end result is so beautiful. Wings of Amber debuts in two versions. Those with a single silver bug are retailing at $75. Those with two silver bugs are $115. Both versions are limited editions. It’s also possible to purchase a complete kit. These kits feature one two bug amber and nine single bug ambers for a retail cost of $750.

Trollbeads Wings of Amber Ordering

Obviously amber is an organic product so no two pieces are identical. Predictably these beads do vary. Below you’ll find a list of my retail partners. Those selling from live images are marked with a *.

Trollbeads Wings of Amber Summary

I am going to say that the two bug version of Wings of Amber is now sold out at Trollbeads USA. As far as I understand they are trying to get more stock but there’s absolutely no guarantee of that. Retailers can receive one two bug version in the kits but they can’t order more stocks of individual two bug ambers. Do keep this in mind as stocks are going to dwindle extremely fast.

I’ll be sharing my own live images tomorrow as I’ve been caught up with the event at Great Lakes Boutique. For those unaware, we’re hosting a trunk show in celebration of Trollbeads Day. It’s buy three get one free on all pre-2018 designs and I’ve been listing some amazing beads all day. Do come and check our live image section. I’ll be listing beads throughout the weekend too.

I will say that I adore these beads but I am a huge fan of amber anyway. It feels apt for a Trollbeads Day bead as the brand are somewhat known for their amber. One thing I want to mention is that I found a lot let variation than I imagined in the two bug ambers. Most of the beads we received were honey coloured with very few inclusions. The variation seems to be more in the one bug ambers. Also I’ve been extremely impressed with the kits. They’ve all had good variation and some really nice pieces of amber. If you’ve been debating a full kit, I’d absolutely recommend going that route.

As always I love to hear from my readers. What are your thoughts on the Trollbeads Wings of Amber and will you be ordering? Hit the comments and let me know!

    HAPPY TROLLBEADS DAY 😄
    I am suprised to hear about the kit configuration and size. Now I know why I’m not seeing so many 2 bugs. I thought you could buy a normal sized kit and have an even number of each style. This should be interesting. And due to the expected weather today I opted out of going to a store so I will enjoy what the internet has to offer 🤗

      Happy Trollbeads Day!

      They’ve done a good job with the kits. I was concerned there was a risk of them arriving with ten ambers that all looked the same, except one having two bees. They’re actually a really nice mix but yes.. the kits are ten beads with nine one bee ambers and one two bee ambers. The two bees are going to become scarce in the USA awfully quickly unless Trollbeads USA manages to get hold of more though :'(

      Luckily for you internet shopping is pretty awesome these days! The retailers do a damn good job 😀

        Yes and I’m very pleased to see so many variations available. A different color for every liking. Hopefully more come our way, though I haven’t seen a complete sell out online just yet. Maybe everyone is really gravitating towards the single for now 😊
