Trollbeads Asian Hearts - new universal core glass bead

Post by Smaug on Fri Nov 02, 2012 9:47 pm

Picture and info about the rumored bead have emerged. The new glass bead "Asian Hearts" will join the "Bavarian" in a series of universal core Country Beads.

"Peace and unity is a common desire of Asian people, in all Asian flags red or white is present. Just like in the hearts of this bead". Asian Hearts is available from mid November.

I like the hearts much better than the Bavarian bead, which I didnĀ“t buy despite the fact that I lived in Bavaria for more than 40 years. But why UU ???

I'm not sure on the colours, but I like the design. Perhaps this would look good with the retired pink/red prism?

I really like the designs of both beads, but.. I have looked at the Bavaria in different shops and haven't purchased because I just don't like the UU core. I have a few UUs, and find myself trying to use them in ways that disguise the big core, on pendants with a screw that covers the hole, for example. I don't know if I want to spend more on beads when I feel the way that I can use them is so limited. Such a shame.

Seems there's no conclusive info on the core size. We figured two different sizes "country beads" would be rather odd. Awaiting confirmation.

I like it very much! Hope that it will be easy to procure.

I haven't made my mind up about UUs.

I do not mind the UU because I can use them on other brands. I love the pandora dark silver bracelet. Also they can be used on thicker chains..

I really hate the UU but I have also an empowerment bead with the UU core and I love it too much to sell. I do not know if I want to buy this bead. Really love the hearts and design.

I actually dreamt about this bead last night! Rolling Eyes It is actually very representative of "cuteness" in Asia and I think it will fit nicely on my Japan bracelet. I'm going to add it to my list.

Like Fee, I have a few of the Empowerment beads and an OOAK that is just super lovely, so apparently I can live with the UUs! sunny

I can live with the UUs, I have many artisan beads that have the larger cores. And I completely understand Trollbeads doing it, why limit the sale of your beads to only those who have a Trollbead chain? All the other beads will fit on the Trollbead chain, which I am sure helps their sales. If the other beads did not fit on the Troll chain, I don't think I would buy them at all!

I just don't like the UUs on the Trollbeads. But it is like my e-reader, I can fight the future, or I can learn to love it affraid

I doubt that Catsworld, haven't seen them when I was there, most shops only sell Pandora. But, although it is a UU core, it is a lovely design.

I am excited to get one, the Universal core has not bothered me once I got used to it. I think I'll probably put 1 or 2 away for gifts as well.

16th of November .... I think...but what is the problem with larger cores? I got some beads from the Malawi collection and I hardly noticed any difference with the others...

the cores of the UU Malawi are only minimal bigger than the normal cores, I am no longer completely against them, especially as there are some beautiful designs, and if I would buy let's say an Evolve bead then I have big cores as well, so why not allow TB to have larger cores? But that is only my opinion and I understand people who are against them..
I am no longer a TB-Purist, so it doesn't bother me any longer.

Don't beat me now! lol!

I don't mind the UU core. However I am not so keen on hearts. Wink

Very Happy That is usually what I end up doing too!

I don't mind the larger core size, what I do mind is when the glass bead ends up being huge. I'm not sure if that is caused by the larger core or not though ... I have some larger core beads that are still very similar in size to the glass beads I have with the smaller core. So I guess what I am saying is I will by it if I love the bead and it is the overall size that I like Smile
