Spring 2017 TB Release

Post by Beady-Eyed on Sat Jan 07, 2017 12:57 am

Spring 2017 TB beads are viewable at Babs FB page & Endangered Trolls.  sunny

What do you think?!

I have a list of silvers I definitely want:  Water Lily Family, Moonlight Dancing & Social Circle.  Will have to see Bumpy Ride & Rhythm Drum but they look good.  I find spacers frustrating because they can't be slid off & on a bracelet quickly, but I love the Single Water Lily spacer.  Like the salmon glitter glass & possibly the swirls of cream, gold & peach.

Moved back the release date to Feb 17  Sad

On first glance, the water lily family and water lily lock are the ones that caught my eye. I'm always hesitant to fall for glass since they can look so different in person! But the glass in that kit do have potential Smile

I like the Perfect Moment glass bead, Bumpy ride and Rythm Drum silvers. Some others look good.

I don't think I'll get any of them, it's a nice collection just nothing must have for me.

I love quite afew of the silvers and I would love a Venus ring, alas I have really slim fingers and the smallest TB rings are too big for my ring finger and I have not yet found one to really fit on any of the others, but my LD accepts returns so I might still try Smile

I am pleased to find that there is a lot in this collection that speaks to me (though my bank account may not be so happy!)

At first glance I wasn't sure about the glass, but I think they will grow on me, I really loved this years gold and white Christmas collection and there are echoes of that in these beads.

Nearly all the silvers appeal, as does the Venus ring and a couple of the fairy pendants.....oh dear!

From the pics I really like the new release and can't wait to see the beads IRL.
I think these are back to their old style silvers, whimsical, but not too cute.
So far I did not spot any hearts, not a single one   Laughing
The "perfect moments" glass is gorgeous too: opaque with gold glitter!
I so had wanted one of the Trollfest Longevity, but did not manage to find one. This is a close as I may come to the color scheme.

The silvers look great to me and I like many of them from the pics, except for the ones with faces (the different trolls). The glass does not appeal to me at all, since I am not too much in the glitter and green neither Sad , but there are so many lovely artisan beads out there that I will survive ...

So overall may get expensive for me... Shocked

I am not mad on the glass but I am looking forward to seeing the silvers in real life. I am not sure what I would do with those long legged fairies as I don't have a neck bangle and don't want one but I rather like them. The smaller silvers may be very useful too.

Oh! I've been mostly offline while visiting my parents, I haven't seen the new release yet. Totally missed all the news on this.

Hmm. The glass is a wait-and-see for me, not love at first sight.

Silvers: Yes to Bumpy Ride, Rhythm Drum, Moonlight Dancing, Fantasy Hibiscus.

Social Circles is interesting, will be fun to play with.

I'm not at all sold on Hourglass, it looks awkward. Water Lily Family looks a bit odd to me, too.

Troll of Curiosity, Troll of Wisdom, Fairy of Nature ---these three flower heads all look familiar to me, but I can't figure out what they remind me of. And I can't decide if I like them or not.

Take a Chance, Dancing Fairy, and Magic Fairy --- these three do not appeal much to me. Too fey, too twee? Too skinny, for sure, like an anorexic Cirque de Soleil. That's my personal opinion. Lots of people will like them and have fun making fairy combinations, the designs are novel and will be fun to play with. I can imagine a whole dance troupe of fairies on a necklace.

Spacers --- meh. I like them, but don't see them as very usable on bracelets, they are too lop-sided.

Locks --yes.

Rings -- okay, but I have plenty of rings.

The Fairy heads remind me of "A Midsummer Night's Dream" and of Venetian carnival masks. I am not sure about the full body fairies, but I agree, they do look like they could use a good meal or two Smile

I ordered 2 perfect moments beads, a bumpy ride and a rhythm drum.  I had hoped to get them today but looks like the package is moving slowly through the post.  Crying or Very sad

Did anyone get any of the Water Lily beads? The single spacer appeals to me the most, but I bet I would love them all. I have no more dealers around me within a one hour drive.

I got both water lilly spacers, love them!

I will order the water lilly bead, too, and maybe the lock.

I have two dealers left  ( one 35 minutes drive, the other 45).
But they are not having all new collections anymore, so I always have to call first.

This and the fact that I don't have much time for bead live shopping lately made me preorder the beads I wanted.
I got them hassle free on release date with a discount  ..and thus decided I will always do this from now on.
I miss live shopping though.

I'm so fortunate Cross fingers  to still have my tiny LD (although she is only hanging on by a thread) and she always gets at least some of new releases.  The Water Lily Family was my top desire, but I found I really like Moonlight Dancing.  One of the only two Sweetness beads she had in was exactly to my specs: very little yellow, and mustard not schoolbus Rolling Eyes

Oh Beady-Eyed, I so love your designs, eye-candy of the most wonderful sort! And it is so great to see the new bead IRL. Sweetness is the one bead I, too, picked. It got delayed, so I will have to wait until Wednesday. It will make hump-day an even more special day .)

beautiful Beady-Eyed, Very Happy
I have not bought anything, but I am so much waiting for the Mother's Day Roses,
and if Faerybeads would do a Mother's Day bead, maybe once, I would be so happy. Very Happy

I have to admit that I love the new silvers, particularly the waterlilies. Also the bumpy ride and the moonlight dancing, altough not yet adopted to my home...



I wear the big waterlily stopper normally on the bangle by itself...

I still have a small dealer close by and she is always getting really nice examples with new releases. She also doesn't mind selling them immediately when she gets them, as she does not have Internet or anything and therefore does not bother Laughing Normally she calls me one week ahead of the official release date. Lucky me Very Happy
