True Beadz Dangle of the Month April 2018

This True Beadz blog brings a preview of the upcoming True Beadz Dangle of the Month for April 2018 as pre-orders begin.

As the True Beadz March Dangle of the Month designs are flying their way to customers, pre-orders begin for the next round. Today and continuing until March the 8th, retailers can begin accepting orders for the True Beadz Dangle of the Month April 2018 and I suspect this one will prove popular.

Once again it will retail at $50 and will be strictly made to order. To clarify it is a limited edition but based on the duration of time you can order and not the quantity made.

True Beadz Dangle of the Month April 2018

This time around the dangle is a lovely ivory shade with a teal decorative pattern.

This design proved incredibly popular when it was used as part of the True Treasures collection provided to Great Lakes Boutique for the fall Bead Bash on the Lake event. There it was produced in both a chocolate and cream mix and a terracotta and cream combination for the autumn season. Many people complained they missed the Treasures so this is a great opportunity to shop the same design without restrictions.

True Beadz Dangle of the Month Pre-Ordering Details

As a recap you have two weeks in which to place your pre-orders for this design. They are exactly made to order so do keep this in mind if you like pairs.

True Beadz Dangle of the Month Summary

This colour scheme will look lovely with Taiga so that’s definitely a colour to perhaps consider alongside your dangle purchases. For reference we finally managed to turn some web counts back on at Great Lakes Boutique after a new delivery of Airs and Blossoms but already they are close to being exhausted. (There are some Taiga Airs; be quick.)

I personally find this the most appealing of the dangles so far. It’s incredibly striking and definitely one to shop in multiples.

As always I love to hear from my readers. What are your thoughts on the True Beadz Dangle of the Month for April 2018? Hit the comments and let me know!

    • Julia

      THANK YOU, Maddy <3

  2. Gene

    Beautiful, Julia!

    • Julia

      thank you, Gene! you are very kind!

  3. Elizabeth

    Oh my! I am loving this new dangle! The color combination and design are perfect. Wow each dangle so far has really been amazing! I am so glad that Julia came up with this concept.

    • endangeredtrolls

      For me this is the strongest from images but of course that’s all a matter of personal taste. I like neutral bases. I like teals so I’m probably pretty bias πŸ™‚ I do still think it will be the most popular so far though πŸ™‚

    • Julia

      thank you so much, Elizabeth! <3 i am so happy the Dangle of the month is well received!

  4. Samantha Cardimon

    I ADORE this! I have one of the matching True Treasures and I’d have to say it’s probably my all-time favorite True Bead. So, yay!

    • endangeredtrolls

      That’s great to hear πŸ™‚

    • Julia

      thank you, Samantha! oh yes! your bead is so close ! can not wait to see it all together on your bracelet <3

  5. Ria

    Absolutely stunning. Just pre-ordered.

    • endangeredtrolls

      Now just to wait πŸ˜€

    • Julia

      thank you so much!!!

  6. Kim

    Love it! I’m a big fan of the True Beads dangles and have several. I really like this dangle of the month concept, and I think this is my favorite so far.

    • endangeredtrolls

      I haven’t seen them in person but for me – based on the images alone – I think it’s the strongest of the three designs πŸ™‚

    • Julia

      thank you so much! how do you feel about the preorder period? is it ok the way it is now?

      • Kim

        I think the pre-order period is fine. Long enough that people don’t feel rushed while not keeping orders open indefinitely. And I’ve said it before, but I like this way of handling limited releases much better than you making a set number of beads in advance and then having everyone madly scrambling to get them.

        • Julia

          thank you! will do my best to keep to the current schedule <3

      • Samantha Cardimon

        Yes! This pre-order time frame is perfect. Long enough to prioritize the budget, long enough in case you get busy and forget to order (!!!). I really appreciate this strategy.

        • Julia

          thank you, Samantha! hahaha forgetting to order happened to me a lot! but i also had moments i received items that i had ordered and forgot about it!

      • Jenifer

        The preorder period is good. This is a pleasant way to handle limited editions. I have time to think and look at my beads and consider how I would wear it.
        My only wish, and this applies to all the brands, would to have more pictures for the preorder period. I’d like to see the beads on bracelets so I can get an idea of scale and see it with complimentary colors. And because I find dangles difficult to style, I’d really like to see photos of dangles actually dangling on a bracelet on a wrist.

        • Julia

          thank you, Jennifer! will do my best and take more photos of the items being used so to say!

  7. Mandy

    Beautiful! Plus, I think it will go with my newvEastern Sea! 😍

    • endangeredtrolls

      Eastern Seas and Taiga I’d say πŸ˜€ I predict a rush on Taiga.. (more so than there already has been πŸ˜› )

    • Julia

      it will look amazing with Eastern sea, no doubt <3

  8. Jenifer

    Very tempting! Lovely colors, pretty design. Really like the ones with 3 dots.

    • endangeredtrolls

      Yeah it’s a beautiful mix of colours I think πŸ™‚ And you have two weeks to decide yet πŸ™‚

      • Jenifer

        What are the chances that Great Lakes will be willing to pick through the stock when it arrives to find ones with dots? πŸ˜‰

        • endangeredtrolls

          Zero πŸ˜› I’ve already woken up to questions from people about this and no, we can’t. We have such a short time frame to get those back out of the door for customers and we’re talking a pretty high number of dangles – especially this month I suspect. Customers are welcome to put preferences in the comments section when ordering and we’ll try our best to accommodate but we truly do not have time with these πŸ™

          • Jenifer

            I figured

    • Julia

      thank you=) they are still in production, I will make sure to add more dots=))))

  9. Pippa

    Great colors and design!!!
    But I’m still on the fence. There is so much variation with the design and, well, it’s a dangle. This design would look so good on beads.
    Jennifer, I agree about the one with 3 dots! I am wondering if all have dots or just some???

    • Pippa

      I ordered – they are so pretty I couldn’t resist. πŸ™‚

    • Julia

      Hi! Thank you)) not all have dots and not all have 3 and not on the same place) yes, there is a variation))

  10. Marisa

    Oh my this is the first design I have really liked. And given that my recent bead mail included two Eastern Seas beads. I am very tempted… πŸ€”

    • Julia

      thank you, Marisa =)

  11. Mandy

    It is also the first bead of the month of any brand for which I am excited. My husband is happy to have an idea for my birthday!

    • Julia

      thank you! helping husband to find a nice present for you is the best excuse to have a bead-hobby=)) I hope you will like the dangle in person <3

  12. Liz

    Love it, ordered it and don’t have a clue on what I will wear with it πŸ˜„

  13. Katie

    Love the colors. Love the design. Egad, I just pre-ordered two. My wallet will cry a little bit, but my wrist will be happy. And, I love the pre-order period. It gives you a bit of time to think about it, if you need to think about it. And, it will allow me to pre order the one announced in April, even though I will be out of the country for 10 days….

    • Julia

      thank you, Katie! Do you already know how are you going to style 2 dangles? together on one bracelet? or one goes on a necklace? as much as i love dangles i don’t think i found all possible ways to wear them=) always looking for something new=)

      • Katie

        I am planning two options, right now. The first is with one the necklace and one on the bracelet. The second is with both on the bracelet and adding a Firebird dangle or two. Basically creating a fun, swing-y bracelet.

        • Julia

          both sounds great! i like your idea of the fire-bird added! the patterns will play nice!

  14. Marie

    Limited edition time periods seems to be the best of both worlds – limited run for the artist (not too few and not a risk of too many), and satisfying the customers who actually get a chance to order without missing out in a nanosecond of online order frenzy. A much more elegant way to handle limited editions that might be a bit larger in quantity.

    Regarding this dangle, I think it once again shows Julia’s talents of color, and details. I’ve already preordered my set!

    • Julia

      oh Marie, thank you so much for your kind words <3 less stress for both sides is exactly what we were looking for! so happy to see that it is working!

  15. Pippa

    I’m curious too how those ordering more then one plan to style them. I admit I got to increase chances of getting one with dots πŸ™‚

  16. Martha Olavarrieta

    Gorgeous dangle. I bought the other two, can’t wait to get this one.

    • Julia

      thank you so much <3

  17. Beth

    I’m new to True Beadz. After having received β€œAntique Lace” from Great Lakes (three additional True Beads glass beads from Great Lakes hopefully to arrive today!), I knew I HAD to order this dangle! I’m afraid I might be hopelessly addicted already with only one – but truly amazing – glass bead currently in my collection! Can’t wait until it arrives!

    • Julia

      Beth, Antique lace is one of my most favourite beads! ok, together with Road to Camelot and Dragon Eyes of course. I hope you will like the bead in person and find the bead very useful <3 swirls are fun to make, very meditative process, i really enjoy working on it

  18. Elizabeth (Lizzie)

    Oh, I like that blue and white spiral design! I haven’t started with any dangle bead rounds, and only have a couple of silver dangles (and have already broken one and need to get to a jeweler to have it repaired) … but if it’s not too late by the time I get through my email and all, I may succumb to this one. Very nice!
