True Beadz Fall 2017 Preview

This True Beadz blog brings a complete preview of the upcoming True Beadz Fall 2017 collection, including the much anticipated Anniversary Bead.

On November the 7th the True Beadz Fall 2017 collection will make it’s debut. Included in this release is the highly anticipated True Beadz 2017, or anniversary bead. This has been much coveted by collectors since Julia first began teasing it on social media.

It’s not a huge release but it does feel subtly autumnal.

The collection consists of two silver beads, both of which channel Julia’s Medieval vibe, one glass bead and one new type of wooden bead.

Of the silvers the largest is the True Beadz 2017 and their anniversary bead of course. It’s set to retail at $100 and though not a huge bead in length it’s very weighty. The texture is that of a castle wall with the raised detailing showing the logo. It’s simple, effective and very easy to use.

A lovely complement or possible alternative for those finding the price of 2017 a little high is the new True Beadz True Bridge. I suspect this design is also going to make an incredibly end cap. It boasts the same brickwork texturing but has a beautifully ornate base and top. It will retail at $45.

The new glass is called the True Beadz Desert and I so want this in multiples. It has the same texture as the popular Touch finish beads but features a beautiful blend of caramel colours. I can’t wait to see the potential variation in these beads. It’s set to retail at $35.

Lastly and both apt for the fall and a lovely colour complement to Desert comes the True Beadz Olive. This is a paler wood than we’ve seen before but take notice of the beautiful contrast between the base and the grain. Olive will retail at $40.

True Beadz Fall 2017 Summary

Though the release date is November the 7th, pre-orders for this collection will begin on October the 20th so there’s now a couple of weeks to plan those wishlists. I love the beautiful chocolate brown shades and those planning ahead would be well advised to consider indulging in some of the True Beadz Terracotta glass.

Once pre-orders begin the beads will be available via Great Lakes Boutique in the USA and Star Bijou in Europe.

    Okay I am ready! This is another perfect release! Love everything about it. The surprise it a new wood bead! I was hoping they would expand this group. the wood adds so much warmth. The silver anniversary has been on my list since I caught a glimpse of it on Julia’s bracelet months ago. And when we saw the bridges bead posted during a bead bash discussion it grabbed the entire tables attention! And that glass will be right at home with my other Beadz. I am already expecting to find a lot of variation with that one. Thanks for the preview!

    • Julia

      thank you so much, Elizabeth! oh yes, this new glass does have some variations. Some do even have pale blue tones, but most are sand/cream/ colour

      • endangeredtrolls

        I can’t wait to see the variations πŸ˜€ These are going to be fun to photograph I can tell πŸ˜€

      • SarahWW

        I shall, of course, be ordering the Anniversary bead and probably two Bridges (I can attest to Liz’s comment about what happened when we saw photos of that during the Bead Bash event!) but I am particularly intrigued by the beautiful Desert bead. Especially since you (Julia) said that some of the beads have a hint of blue. Any chance you could make a few of those up special – for this, your Carolina Blue friend?!? (wink, wink). <3

        • Julia

          Sarah, I wish I knew how that blue happened to be there! it was such a surprise! <3

          • SarahWW

            Karma. <3

    • endangeredtrolls

      I loved the wood as well. It’s a completely different feel to either glass or stone and certainly in autumn it really comes into it’s own. Desert is going to vary so so much. I can’t wait to get a bunch of those together for photography πŸ˜€

  2. Gene

    Surprise! I have a comment and that is that I want all of them! I have been waiting for the silver True Beadz 2017 it seems like forever. Desert is an absolute must-have. I *might* want a couple of the Bridge bead, maybe at each end of a bracelet? Finally the wood bead Olive will go beautifully with my other three True Wood beads. This collection actually has me nervous with anticipation already.

    • Julia

      thank you very much, Gene <3 all woods together do really work great! and the Bridge is a coin shaped spacer, so it can go on the end of the bracelet or frame a special bead

    • endangeredtrolls

      Yes Bridge is going to make a perfect end cap when used in pairs I think. Where as the 2017 bead is more of a focal feature. Desert is going to be one to buy in multiples as we’re going to see a lot of variation in them πŸ˜€

  3. Rosie

    I’m really starting to fall in love with this line of jewelry. The glass is so beautiful.

    • Julia

      thank you

    • endangeredtrolls

      Julia has always had an amazing eye for colour!

  4. Melissa

    Wow, the new glass is beautiful. I’ll definitely be getting that one and the bridge silver. Very nice release!

    • Julia

      thank you so much, Melissa!

    • endangeredtrolls

      Yes beautiful and will show a lot of variation I think. I’m really excited to see the different versions we’ll see πŸ˜‰

  5. Pippa

    I love those silvers!!!! The GOT bracelet I started with some recent purchases is going rapidly becoming a stack. Maybe I will start designing bracelets for specific favorite characters.

    • Kim

      Wonderful release! I love it all. The silvers are the highlight for me. They’re both beautiful substantial pieces that complement each other beautifully. The glass is lovely too, and I’ve been thinking I need more neutrals as we head into fall. And the new wood bead looks like a nice addition to the line. Julia and Alexey have done it again! My wallet rather wishes they hadn’t!

      • Julia

        =)))) thank you so much, Kim! we had to wait for this beautiful season to add the new wood <3

      • endangeredtrolls

        I love neutrals. There was a time I despised them but I wear them so often now. Right now I have two go to bangles that don’t come off my wrist. One is marbled ambers on gold. The second is two Golden Rutilated Quartz on rose gold. I’ve *just* added a Labradorite to the second as I stumbled upon a dark one with the most amazing rose coloured flash. The bad news is that now I need to find a second :< But both combinations are so neutral and easy to wear πŸ˜€

    • Julia

      thank you! I just realized I can not tell what is my favourite GOT character …. not easy to choose just one!!

    • endangeredtrolls

      Yes there’s a lot of inspiration to be found in the True Beadz catalogue when it comes to Game of Thrones and these two silvers even more so. Desert would work so well for Daenerys’ travels though too πŸ˜€

  6. Dona Vesta

    Exquisite release. Love all the beads. Truly worth waiting for.

    • Julia

      thank you! we were hoping we can have a release in October, but realized that it is better to move it a but further to avoid the rush

    • endangeredtrolls

      So pleased you like it πŸ˜€

  7. Lisa G

    I love the desert. The mix of colors reminds me of marmor.

    • Julia

      thank you, Lisa! yes! it is the same type of glass

    • endangeredtrolls

      It reminds me of something sweet and caramely and makes me hungry πŸ˜‰ But yes this one is going to vary for sure :O

  8. Elise

    The silver beads are magnificent. Super excited to have a determined release date!

    • Julia

      thank you, Elise <3

    • endangeredtrolls

      Yay for release dates! And pre-order dates! πŸ˜€ I’ll try and photograph the anniversary bead this week I think πŸ˜€

      • Elise

        Yes! The 20th is not far off! I do like the whole release, too…and will pre-order. I’ve been anticipating the silver ever since the teasers. The glass and the olive wood bead are so lovely together. ❀

  9. Jane

    When you deliver beads in this high quality, you don’t need a huge release There are no β€œweak points, all are gorgeous! πŸ™‚

    • endangeredtrolls

      Oh yes I think most collectors would prefer quality over quantity! Especially with so many brands out there. I’m so pleased to hear you like the collection πŸ™‚

    • Julia

      oh Jane, thank you!!!!!! <3

  10. Samantha Cardimon

    Oh, they are wonderful! But the Bridge is my absolute favorite. It’s definitely a bridge, but it is also very much like the architecture in a giant cathedral. So perfect for my “Lion in Winter” (my favorite film) bracelet! Congratulations on another lovely collection! And Hapoy Anniversary!

    • endangeredtrolls

      I’m so pleased to hear you found such inspiration here! I’m planning on using two as end caps I think.. Either either side of one focal on a bangle or at either end with a few beads in between. At least I’m hoping it will work that way πŸ˜€

    • Julia

      thank you, Samantha <3

  11. Beth

    Oh dear, my wallet is groaning. I, however, want to do a happy dance. I want each and every one, and some of them in multiples. The anniversary bead is a definite for me. I love celebrating Julia and Alexey’s talents, especially as I’ve been collecting True Beadz from very near the start. And the bridges! How cool are those? I’ll want two because, as others have said, they’ll be marvelous as a pair on a bangle or as end caps on a fuller bracelet. The Desert is a beautiful color, and it will be so lovely with my other warm-toned True Beadz, especially Terra Cotta. Julia, you and Alexey have outdone yourselves again!

    • Julia

      thank you, Beth, for “supporting the brand before…” haha you know it! Desert will really play well Terracotta! I have not thought about it! <3 thank you for the kind words

    • endangeredtrolls

      So pleased you like the release. Bridge is definitely one to be bought in pairs I think. I can’t wait to see Desert in person because you just know we’re all going to have such fun with the variation πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

      Roll on November πŸ˜‰

  12. Katie

    I love every bead. Thank goodness the release is small enough to properly indulge in the whole release. I will use the bridge bead of the cap of a fantasy necklace. It will be come a tower – with the Anniversary Bead, the True Dragon bead, two glass or gemstone beads, and the Bridge on top… a proper castle tower.

    • Julia

      Thank you, Katie! Small releases have their advantages))))) you just described the necklace I would love to wear! I love your idea of using the Bridge on a necklace!!

  13. Liz

    The Anniversary bead will be first on the first. I’ve been waiting so long for it πŸ˜„
    I want 2 of the bridges ( always better in pairs 😊 )
