There are pics on ET of the whole release which will be in January.
I like the Hematite beads and some of the silvers.

I'm not feeling blown away by any of this although I am telling myself that they may just be bad pictures!

Wow!  Shocked  Very Happy  Thanks for the notice! This is a huge release Surprised  The glass all looks ho hum  to me or as if we have already been there done that. But the compass, love! And the silvers, really run the gamut from being abstract to commercial thematic. I am just in shock at how many new ones though.

I have to admit I am thrilled...I like some of the glass beads, especially
the glowing one and the glittery green one.

As for the silvers...gosh, that will be expensive.........love so many and that new lock is also gorgeous..now that I know neverending and live,love &forgive will be available in silver I can seriously contemplate about getting the golden stars.......

It seems a very big release.....they seem to be getting bigger and more frequent or is it that I just can't afford them any more?

Anyway I am starting a cruise/sea bracelet so the theme suits me to a certain extent. I am keen to see more images of the ship and I like the compass. The glass is nice but is getting more and more expensive so I am not so keen to think about buying kits any more. Lots I don't want so that's handy from an ever growing wosh list point of view!

Surprised to see pictures so soon.  The glass seems very plain to me.  A lot of them have already been done.  
Some of the silvers look interesting.  Love the compass, Neverending and Live, Love & Forgive.  
I wish they had done a natural hematite.
I have plenty of time to think about them and decide what I might really want..

way too early to think again about new beads, might get some or might not get some???
Anyway, my local dealer is not selling as well as they have been selling, to me it seems now more and more, quantity not quality...

Ok, that comes early, let's forget about winter and x-mas and start with a new spring Laughing
Basically I am missing the "WOW" in this collection.

The glass looks like been-there-done-that although a glow in the dark bead in price group 1 will be nice.  Cool
The new flower "Sea Anemone" may be a lovely addition to the aurora and facetted aurora beads. The new style flowers remind me at Dendrobium kingianum, my favorite Australian orchid.

I can see a few silvers joining my wishlist: never-ending, climbing leaves, DODO, but somehow (and from the pics) there could have been more design and detail on others.

Absolutely disappointed by the dragonfly (has a car run over it?).

Finally, why oh why, has the Hematit had to be dyed?

Seems way to early--I can't think about spring yet...we still have winter to suffer through....

I do like the barrels and I am sure I will get the one with birds. Not sure about the others.

Wow so many beads... Shocked and wayyyyy too early

glass nothing new but I'm not into the glass anyways... and the silvers range from wow great to... nahhh to... ugh the typical cutesy to.... horrible indiscernible blob of metal Razz

My favourite is definitely the boat but don't know if I will ever buy now that I decided to quit with tb...

Ohhh and I like the blue light grey leather bracelet Wink

Isn't it funny that some of the recent and coveted glass-designs uniques such as the frogs, kraken and dragonfly are released as silvers now?

I'm completely in love with the jewel of the sea! Will be fantastic on a fantasy chain as well as on a normal neclace (silver or leather) and perhaps also on a bracelet and on the bangle! Can't wait to buy this one! bounce bounce bounce

I already see it with the hematite beads or scale uniques and lotus tops as spacers between them, so you can make your fishy longer or shorter, just how you want it! Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

I looked at jewel of the sea I had to look to see it is a fish. I will like it with one the facet beads in.
There is some glass I like the sea flower is good and much more of the silver than the last release. I like the new waves for a necklace next of my new whales bead. Octopus
I like the barrels also I hope they are not to big inside.

Kyhalfpt I had to cjheck the birds I did not see them first Fool

Love the Hematite (all the colours) as these are great for us boys. Out of the silvers I love the Dodo, New Horizons (boat) must have as I have the Viking Ship which I adore. I also love the Guardian of Treasures (octuppus); feeling the need to put together a pirates of the caribbean themed bracelet if I add these beads (which I probably will) to my ever growing addictive collection.

The Hematite beads caught my attention, too. The glass was ho hum, but I appreciated the depth of the glass flower bead. I have to cut back on silvers, so I am most likely passing for now. If I had to choose right now, it would be Dodo. I am not sure if I want a dyed stone bead, but I have had no issue with my Turquoise Agate.

Love the idea of the Hematite as the scales of the fish. That would be awesome.

My sister is going to love the sea theme beads in this collection. I can see her ordering all but the turquoise ribbon in the the Aqua Glass Kit. I'll have to send her the sneak peak link. I do think The Jewel Of The Sea two-piece fish pendant is a really cute idea and bead. The compass is cool, but so much of the design is lost unless you wear it at the end of the bracelet. It would be nice as a Pendant by looping leather through it so the design is visible. Out of the entire collection, I would take a second look at the Gentle Wave bead. I will be curious to see what that looks like in real life. Otherwise, not for me. But it's still fun to see what is being added to the line.

The worst release ever IMHO. The hematites might be interesting if they're not too gaudy, and the Tropical Conch glass with all the dots is attractive; otherwise the glass are all meh. The Rose Ribbon & Turquoise Ribbon glass beads are both in the collection now; I think they're just attaching them to new bead sets, leading me to believe that whatever groupings they're in now will be retired.

I definitely want the Gentle Wave silver, and the Path of Life looks good on the leather starter bracelet. Some silvers are not even recognizable. I hate the shape of the silver barrels with the trumpet-flare ends. I like the Wild Cherry lock but I hope it's not small or too awkward.

I'm a bit underwhelmed.  I don't dislike the glass, and there are a few that I would consider buying - I like Neptune's Promise and Pink Conch.  The green glittery one is pretty, but I'm trying to figure out how that is different from the green glittery one from last spring's collection - perhaps this one is a bit lighter in tone? But a lot of them are the same designs there are already multiples of in the collection, and they don't really excite me.  I don't see any definite must haves in the silvers either.  I like the lock, since I have the cherry blossom pendant to match it, and think the barrel silvers look interesting.  And the Jewel of the Sea is really cute, but I'm not sure if that is really my style.  I'd buy the Night Owl before that one.

The only bead I might buy is the Dodo but everything else is truly awful. The glass gets worse with each release.
