@Molamola wrote:The Blue kit is gorgeous and I like the Coral one too (it will give more scope to use the extant coral beads). I always like to see more stones and the silvers are intriguing. I love the dancing couple. I see what they are doing with the proposal one and the family one. Clearly going for the gift market with those.

I sympathise with Troll, although I prefer the artsy, quirky and abstract silver beads it is quite obvious to me that the major share of the market prefers other things. All the beads which retired and I was gutted about are still available a year on and at sale prices, ergo I don't like what most people like. Troll seem to be sticking to their in-house style whilst also trying to grab the section of the market which buys beads to represent things which have happened to them (as oppoed to me who buys them not for any sentimental "meaning" but for their artistry).

50 Shades of Grey (Bang head) outsells Dostoyevsky by a factor of ... what?. In a time of economic crisis you've got to produce what you think will sell.

We are on the same wavelength! Whenever I spot a Troll-syle bracelet on a stranger, the charms are almost always bling-y glass or sentimental, artless silvers. This may be why Troll may never achieve a wide audience or the luxury jewelry status they seek. The masses buy the cheaper sentimental stuff and the well-heeled think interchangeable bracelets are for the masses. But, whatever.... Bring on the new release and we, the Troll-addicted, will buy. Thanks for the up close pics, Sherlock! Nothing like the anticipation of a new release!

Ah, 50 Shades of Grey... erotica it is not. But do most folks read enough to be able to tell the difference? You may find more people these days who have read 50 shades than have heard of Dostoyevsky.

Thank you once again for the sneak peek Sita and Sherlock. Not much for me here. I already have a beautiful true dark red dillo from Tivoli, don't do orange at all, although for those who do, these peach/scarlet beads will be spectacular witht the existing coral beads. Orange/mandarin is really fashionable as a colour trend it seems. Wave of Dreams is the pick of the bunch for me. I do like the look of the bliues, but the Eye looks just like Azure Bubbles and isn't cozy (which looks beautiful) a lot like Silver Mountain? Traces and Blue Moonstone are pretty, on my wish list. I'll be interested to see the faceted Chalcedony - stock pic looks insipid compared to my gorgeous artisan ones Evil or Very Mad The dragon and the Snake might be worth a look, but my goodness, has Troll run out of inspiration? Are only the "People" coming up with new ideas?

Trollmoll & Molamola - I agree with you both. Although, I'm to the point, if I don't love it, I don't buy it. I think I have to get the artistic, quirky stuff elsewhere.

Thank you SHerlock!

I love the piggy, so will have to add it to my list. I have the limited zodiac and really love it, so I won't need the whole set.

I really like the blue set!

Thank you for the peeks!

But I'm not sure about any of them... I'll need to see them in person- the Zodiac's especially look a tad scary looking to me...

Wow! Thank you for sharing this preview. I am curious to see how heavy and big the zodiac silvers are. If they are as nice as the original Chinese set then I might be tempted. I bet some of these glass beads are going to be great in person. I might add it would have been nice if they had released sets in completely new colors.....grey, yellow, green.....it seems to me that we recently had blues and beiges with the release of conch and beach, etc.....well, thank you again for the preview.

If so, it is a good job that I don't like many of these beads. I might only need the Chalcedony. I am not sure that the blue kit is really as good as I thought.

I am hoping for to make a games and hobby bracelet I hope it will go with the Mah Jong bead. I have 2 glass dice and I will get the silver also. then I have origami then I think of some more.

Thank you Sita and Sherlock, great pictures!

Chinese zodiac again - yawn! However, the Dragon and Snake look like interesting interpretations of the creatures and might be worth adding to my reptile house.

Facetted chalcedony is a must, jaspers a maybe if they are nice and not mud coloured.

I have far too many blue beads, but I love the moonstone and the two that look like Christa beads.

Endangered trolls have updated their pics of the new release to include some close up's if anyone is interested. I still love the look of the wave of dreams but am less enamoured of the other glass since seeing these pics.
