True Beadz Event Bead & Promotion for the Great Lakes Boutique Bead Bash on the Lake

For the entire weekend the True Beadz buy four get one free promotion will make it’s return for collection beads. Further to that comes confirmation of the next exclusive event bead.

Due to limited numbers, the event bead will be offered in store first. It will only be made available online if there is excess stock. At that stage it will be first come first served via the website.

In regards to the promotion, inventory counts for the website will be turned on and this is important to note. It does mean that stock will be limited and beads cannot be back ordered. It also means that the beads are ready to ship immediately following the weekend. I’d encourage planning of wishlists ahead of time.

At this time the event bead has no name but it can be confirmed that once again it’s a silver design created by Alexey.

Bead Bash on the Lake Spring 2018

To summarise again: Mike and Jenny from Ohm Beads USA, Julia and Alexey from True Beadz, Alex Cramariuc from ACA Kreations and numerous representatives from Trollbeads USA will be joining us for the weekend.

There are now confirmed event beads for True Beadz (silver,) ACA Kreations (silver) and Trollbeads (glass.) Lastly the first promotion to be announced is the popular buy four get one free for True Beadz.

For those of you waiting on actual previews. The first will probably be next week, though I’m not saying which. This event is going to be an absolute shopping extravaganza for collectors.

As always I love to hear from my readers. Will you be joining Bead Bash on the Lake? Hit the comments and let me know!

    Yay! I’m very excited for another silver from Alexey.
    It really sounds like it’s going to be an amazing event – I still can’t believe I get to go!

    • Julia

      it will be amazing, absolutely no doubt! see you soon!!!!

    Looking forward to seeing all the event beads! Hope there will be enough True Beadz event beads left for the online customers. There are a lot of True Beadz fans, and not everyone has the possibility to attend the event in person.

      We absolutely understand this and we’ll be offering as much as possible to our online customers.

      We do also have to be realistic about the stock levels of some beads though so there are certain things that we know demand will exceed the supply. In those instances we’re going to have to judge in store demand first before we decide whether or not to put the bead online.

      This is why – for example – we don’t think the ACA Kreations bead will ever make it online. Alex is there in person and we have some people flying in particularly to meet him. We can’t then risk no stock of that bead available because we sold a large number online πŸ™

      Equally we will have Julia and Alexey there in person and we want to ensure those travelling to meet them can buy the event bead and chat to them about the design, where the inspiration came from and so on.

      Hopefully stocks will last and we can get the True Beadz event bead up online during the course of the weekend but there will be lots of other online listings for those customers πŸ™‚ We’ll be doing as we’ve done every other event and trying our best to just split the deliveries in half.

        Are there fewer of these beads being made than the Polar Bear? I am flying in, basically because Alex wil be there, but getting to meet Julia and Alexey is exciting too. Am awaiting the Polar Bear bead as I waited to order it, not knowing how I’d use it. It is probably going to be hard to buy all the beads I want. How hectic does it get at the 2 artisan booths?

        • endangeredtrolls

          There will be fewer yes and we’ll confirm the quantities ahead of the event πŸ™‚

          There’s always an initial rush on the Friday morning but it quietens down once people have had a chance to browse the initial stock and start to ponder their first round of purchases πŸ™‚

    I am looking forward to doing the event True Beadz deal, I had hoped that it would be open order again, i know some didn’t like the wait for beads to be made last time but it has never bothered me. But I also understand that it’s alot of work for GLB and Julia.
    I already have my list ready, the 2017 & bridge beads are at the top of my list.
    Can’t wait to see what the event bead looks like and fingers crossed there are some left for online.

      Hi Liz πŸ™‚

      Yes we can’t do that again unfortunately πŸ™ Despite the disclaimers about the wait time on beads, we had customers upset with us. It’s impossible to know how many orders we’ll get so Julia can’t even know how much time to possibly set aside and that then messes with any plans she has for her brand.

      We try to plan our inventory carefully for events but it’s such an impossible task to predict what people will order. Silver beads are usually not so bad. The other issue of course is that none of us actually know what the True Beadz collection will look like come May :O

  7. Lisa G

    I can’t wait to see Alexey and Alex again as I want to make my own silver beads and hope to get some advice from them. I want to make some beads for myself!

    • endangeredtrolls

      I’m sure they’ll both be happy to chat about how they work πŸ™‚
