True Beadz Friendly Smile Preview

This True Beadz blog brings a complete preview of the upcoming True Beadz Friendly Smile, the Great Lakes Boutique exclusive event bead.

Earlier today I unveiled the upcoming Ohm Beads OhmMyGod 2.0 as the Spring Bead Break event charm for Great Lakes Boutique (pictured below.)

Naturally it’s not the only event bead!

True Beadz Friendly Smile

The True Beadz Friendly Smile will be exclusive to the event and is limited to just two hundred pieces. It’s a zesty orange bead with metallic inclusions and will be retailing at $40. Do remember that True Beadz use a universal core so it’s fully compatible with Ohm Beads or Pandora charm bracelets.

True Beadz Friendly Smile Summary

With only two hundred of these beads available, they’ll launch at the actual event on April the 26th. I’m assuming it will then be handled like the True Beadz True Tower; any excess will be offered online.

The bead was named after the amazing atmosphere that was undoubtedly one of the best aspects of the Bead Bash on the Lake. In theory bringing together so many brand representatives could have had the potential for disaster, or at least a little tension. Actually the complete opposite happened and there was nothing but love and support among the group. No other event has the capacity to bring together all those individuals so if you want a truly special experience, you should absolutely consider attending.

As always I love to hear from my readers. What are your thoughts on the True Beadz Friendly Smile? Are you attending the Spring Bead Break? Hit the comments and let me know!

    I hope there will be some left for Online. Love the colour and definitely want one 😍

      I’d guess there will be some but I’d also guess it’s going to be very few. There’ll probably be an update on that once we’re closer.

      thank you, Liz! I was looking for a warm and “happy” colour

    This is so beautiful! I love orange beads and this may be the most spectacular one yet. I’m still trying to financially sort out if I can attend the Bead Bash, but this certainly pushes me closer to attending. Gorgeous!

    • endangeredtrolls

      Isn’t it beautiful? 🙂 Oh I so hope you can come! 😀 I’m already counting down the days. Actually I’ve been doing that for a while but it seems more okay to *admit* that I am now it’s just a couple of months away 😉

      xoxo

    • Julia

      that would be amazing if you could be there!!!!! <3

    I love the color of this glass. It will provide a great pop of color wherever it sits one a bracelet. I am ready for bead bash! Travel and hotel are all set. I am getting more excited with each new event post! It will be amazing I am sure.

    • endangeredtrolls

      Ooooooh don’t worry, there’s at least one more exciting announcement yet 😉 😀 Actually those of you who follow the Great Lakes Instagram account should have seen a teaser of that a couple of weeks ago… 😉 😀

    I love the bead. Beautiful color!! I really wish that I could go to the event, this bead would make it completely worth it. I guess that I’ll just keep my fingers crossed and hope that I can get one online.

    • endangeredtrolls

      With only two hundred made it’s going to depend on how many attendees want one. Then I assume anything left over will go online. I’m sure there’ll be more details closer to the time but you should absolutely try to go. They’re great fun 😀 Even with the ludicrous flight times before hand (for me anyway! :D)

      xoxo

    • Julia

      thank you so much, Katie! I am so happy to see the bead is well received! It is not my usual style =)) and not the colours I wear a lot myself, but I am so happy with how it turned out!

  5. Gene

    I won’t be able to make it to the Bead Bash unfortunately. I would love to get this bead so I’m hoping there will be some left online. I keep saying it Julia, but you’ve done it again!!! Such incredible talent.

    • Julia

      oh dear Gene, THANK YOU! I was not sure about the orange just because I don’t really see a lot of orange beads. So I wanted to make something mixing the colours and had to add some peach and yellow and of course some gold=) I am so glad to know you like it!

      • Gene

        Julia, I think that the fact that orange is not a common color for beads makes me want it even more!

        • Julia

          =))

  6. Kim

    I love the colors of this bead, and what a great idea to name it for the friendship and camaraderie of the event. I had a blast at the last event and am looking forward to this one even more!

    • Julia

      thank you, Kim! The atmosphere was just amazing! I wanted to create something warm and cozy, but sparkling and bright at the same time. Good memories made into a glass bead =)

      • Kim

        Well I’d say you succeeded perfectly, Julia! Warm, bright, AND sparkly, yes,yes and yes. I love bright happy colors and can’t wait to add this bead to my collection. I’m looking forward to seeing what else you’ll have with you, as well! Weren’t we promised a batch of lovely True Treasures? 😉 ❤

        • Julia

          thank you! <3 oh yes, True Treasures are in progress =)

    A little late commenting, but Julia this bead is spectacular and I so wish I could be there 😞. Will there be another event in the Fall that True Beadz and Ohm will be at? Victoria I know you’ve already mentioned that this will be your only US trip this year…
