Trollbeads Winter 2018 Live Images

This Trollbeads blog brings live images of the Trollbeads Winter 2018 collection.

The Trollbeads Winter 2018 collection officially called Trollbeads Stardust, is now available for pre-order ahead of it’s global launch on Friday. I shared the complete preview earlier today and now it’s time or live images.

I’m loving this release despite the fact I’m not a huge fan of Christmas. The glass feel versatile which is very good news as it’s always a little difficult to justify a large spend for beads you’ll receive very limited use of. The silver beads are cute and just a little whimsical and there’s a beautiful and very contemporary feeling new bangle.

Live image shopping is available from us at the Great Lakes Boutique website where you’ll find all of the beads featured here:-

There’s only four new glass for this release but they are spectacular! As mentioned I think we have a little more versatility this year with the glass and each has a very distinctive vibe. They each retail at $55 and there is variation to be found in the size and shape. The glitter is segmented into panels with these beads, so there are faces that are just solid colour. All of the beads have a golden overlay which you can see clearly in these images. It’s actually very effective for this glass as it coordinates with the warm of the copper glitter.

The Trollbeads Blue Twinkle is my personal favourite purely due to the specific shade. If you love winter night or night sky bracelets, this one is beautiful.

The Trollbeads Yellow Twinkle is poorly named in my opinion. It makes me think of a bright, gharish bead and it’s far from this. It’s a lovely creamy shade that lends itself well to the sparkle. Some readers mentioned it looks like eggnog. For me it’s reminiscent of creme brulee. Regardless that should give you a good indication of how delicious the colour is. This one will be very versatile I think.

This bead coordinates beautifully with the Trollbeads Diamond Bead Amber as the images below will hopefully show.

The Trollbeads Red Twinkle is quite a dark shade which I’m so pleased about as I hate when red beads turn that orangey shade that seems to plague this colour of glass. It also makes it rather elegant. This particular bead will see you well into the Valentine’s Day combinations.

Finally is the Trollbeads Green Twinkle and for me this is the most festive of the set.

From there we move to the single gemstone; the Trollbeads Pyrite. Much like the Steel Hematite it’s mirrored so be aware with images that it can pick up on any other colours around it. It’s gold with very little variation aside from some size difference. It retails at $65.

For those wondering how it compares to the Steel Hematite, here you go! (Notice how the Pyrite looks darker when next to the Steel Hematite?)

For the silvers I’ll begin with the new Trollbeads Heart Bangle though unfortunately I think this is one people will perhaps need to see in person. Look carefully at the ends of the bangle and you’ll see it’s heart shaped. This is completely invisible when worn, though you can tell clearly the bangle isn’t simply spherical. It looks very contemporary. Beads sit snugly on it as you would expect though I have to confess to wearing mine without and just stacked with other bangles.

Two silvers creating a lot of smiles already are the Trollbeads Tiny Cookie Joy and More Cookie Joy, retailing at $45 and $55 respectively. Tiny makes the bead sound so small and actually it’s not that bad. Both are large enough to see the designs and they are very sweet (no pun intended.)

The Trollbeads Stardust and Come Together are a great complement to each other with Stardust having the more definitive star design. Both retail at $45.

The Trollbeads Heart to Heart is a small silver bead but it’s fuss free design means it’s still easy to discern. It’s retailing at $35.

Meanwhile the Trollbeads Heart to Heart Pendant retails at $65 and is designed to encase a glass or stone. Personally I think this is better left to the fantasy necklace though it will fit on both bracelets and bangles.

Trollbeads Christmas 2018 Summary

The glass is undoubtedly the highlight of this release for me, though I’m loving the Trollbeads Heart Bangle too. I’m relieved that the glass is a little more versatile and do remember the Trollbeads Christmas Glitter Kits and Colourful Christmas Kits will be making a return as well.

The release may not be huge but it’s well thought out and though there are Christmas motifs, the collection accommodates those seeking a little more versatility and longevity in their beads.

As always I love to hear from my readers. What are your thoughts on the Trollbeads Winter 2018 collection? Hit the comments and let me know!

    Dang it, you had to mention creme brulee! πŸ˜€

    • endangeredtrolls

      It’s very creme brulee for me. I swear you can almost smell the vanilla. Even that honey overlay feels apt for the caramelised sugar… πŸ˜›

  2. Linda

    The glass beads are beautiful! I want them all.

    • endangeredtrolls

      Me too and multiples πŸ˜€

  3. Noemi

    I don’t know why the colors remind me of Hogwarts πŸ™‚

    • endangeredtrolls

      No I get it. Infact you just gave a spoiler for how I’ll be styling the Ohm Beads Rebirth πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜€

    • Lola

      I don’t know anything about Hogwarts. πŸ™‚ I see the four primary colors from which all other colors are created, like star nebulas (the stardust around the colors) create planets. It’s a well thought-out collection when everybody can get something out of it.

      • endangeredtrolls

        Harry Potter fans see potential anywhere :p We’re a bit special πŸ˜‰

    • Diane

      The colors remind me of Hogwarts, too!! πŸ˜€

        *Hums the Harry Potter tune*

        Oh.. doesn’t just hearing that music make you πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

        Maybe we need to show some house pride with these glass πŸ˜‰

        • Diane

          Agree! πŸ˜€

    Is the gingerbread ring available for preorder? We can’t find it on GLB, and my sister *NEEDS* it!!!

    lol πŸ˜€

    • Enfys

      Oh! Just found it! 😍

      • endangeredtrolls

        Sorry! Yes it’s there πŸ™‚

  5. Tracy

    Hi do you know if we are having a Black Friday Bead in the Uk this year.
    Love the new Christmas release even the silvers which I don’t usually like.xx

    • endangeredtrolls

      I’m sure Trollbeads will announce if there is πŸ™‚

  6. annie

    That is really a wonderful release. I love these glass beads. I urgently need the yellow one to combine it with my amber diamonds. And I need this beautiful heart pendant for my fantasy necklace. 😍

    • endangeredtrolls

      The pendant is really beautiful for necklace wearers. It’s just not so good on the wrist. The Yellow Twinkle is soooo pretty!

  7. Pippa

    I want to love the glass but am worried that there are just too many variables to pick out even from live pics and I can’t help thinking the glitter is too clumpy on some. I just wish I was more excited..

    • endangeredtrolls

      Aw I’m sorry πŸ™
