The new Autumn Collection from Trollbeads has been such fun… first the curiosity and excitement of wishing to see the new designs…then the unveiling! Tartooful was like a carnival on Friday, with lots of happy collectors coming in to visit and see the new beads. Now, we are all enjoying playing with the new designs to see how they fit in with the rest of the collection.
The warm toned combination shown above includes many beads that have proved to be very easy to integrate into existing collections. For example, I’m seeing “Dew Drops” find a home on bracelets that range from soft pink, to bronze, to purple, to amber. “Fireflies” offers a touch of lightness and pulls together a green and purple palette. “Organic Bubbles” is an extremely variable bead, with colours that might include brown, green, vicuna, and even touches of blue. For that design, it really depends on the individual bead. However, like it’s sibling, “Azure Bubbles”, it is fascinating and beautiful. “Lake Eye” is a lovely gentle green, with a hint of violet in the right light. So far we have mostly seen it going to green and purple bracelets, but I am looking forward to seeing what new combinations it inspires.
I’m delighted with the two new “Goldstone” beads: they’re rich, sparkling and the colours are gorgeous. The cinnamon coloured “Goldstone” is glorious paired with bronze and pink, and of course will be spot-on perfect for Fall with ambers and other golden-hued beads. The “Blue Goldstone” is really different, a deep navy with sparkles of Lapis blue. One customer has nestled it, along with a “Blue Tiger Eye”, into her black and indigo combination, where they truly sing. I’ll share customer photos in the next little while – if you have any fresh combinations that you’d like to share please let me know!
Hmmm… it all has me mulling a revamp of my own bracelet! I’ll keep you posted.
