Is strange they are producing some many beads first to promote in the US and they are losing many well know retailers there also.  Suspicious Puzzled Puzzled

I've heard the new bead described as having a more opaque base whereas the old Red Stripe is translucent. But not really much different.

I agree that they should be available for all, but I'm OK with "launch beads" if they are meant to increase traffic in stores during the new releases--as long as all dealers can get them.  From what I have read online today and the dealers I talked to today, the eagle seems like it will be available.  Ordertrollbeads.com already has a pre-order link for it ($72) and Trollbeads Delaware said they will have it at all four of their stores--so it seems like it will be available. Hopefully it will be available in all countries with the new release--seems odd to me to have it available in the US at launch and then available in other countries later.  I reserved one today--can't wait till I can have it  Laughing Laughing

I just wonder if they will actually ship them now????

I am very keen on labyrinth, fawn and squirrel, glass I must see first, ....I am unsure now....sale before they are released, I hope they won't run into trouble! maybe business is really hard now if they have to resort to this. We only have a certain amount for beads and once the bead money is gone to whoever dealer, it is gone, it is not growing on trees!  Very Happy

Maybe that is precisely why they are promoting in the US first - to distract us and our dismay from all the store closings.

I remember other complaints that designs submitted to the Peoplesbead contest made it into production in different form. There have been cornucopias in the PB contest in the past and it is part of this fall's collection and there may have been squirrels too. One of my submissions this year was lotus end caps (just before Alex Cramariuc released his - I got his and love them) and I will probably get the TB version too. It is a design that I really thought was missing from the collection. So it seems that "ideas" are not considered original property if the designs are sufficiently different.

It's just many times they are not much different. It just cause they are designers so they can take the idea and make it work better in the silver  I explained mine coin shaped with the labyrinth pattern very much like what was released. It just seems they were able to make the detail work in the silver
 I also sent them an email to see if aside from people's bead that I thought my idea. Would be a good bead for their collection. Of course I got no response.

And the prices are cheaper than in the US stores.  Very tempting.  There are a few silvers I want and I will probably order on line anyway since no dealers are close by anymore.  The say shipped on Sept 5th.

One if my submissions 2010 was a cornucopia- I am glad such a design made it finally into the collection.
Would have been nice to get some credit but admittedly cornucopia is not a very unique symbol, so I am okay
with it.

Just took a look at the Autumn 2014 release as it was on the Trollbeads Gallery web site.
Notable is the "Spiritual Adornment" and "Spiritual Ornament" beads - design, quite interesting.

Also, the Squirrel bead's got a nut !

Yes, the Adornment silver may be the one I buy first, since I can't afford everything I want at once: Inner Strength; Dandelion; Labyrinth; Lotus; Lotus Top; Lapis Lazuli, Temple Lock . . .

This release just doesn't do it for me  Neutral maybe I'll like it better when I see the beads in use.

The squirrel looks a little shell shocked to me, almost as if he's just run into a road at night and is face oncoming traffic!

mind you, I took my daughter to see 'The Nut Job' on friday so perhaps it's just my imagination running wild Wink
