I must be still under the Troll spell....   I actually like some of the coming spring silvers more than the past couple of seasonal releases (last fall's excepted).  They are simple and well defined.  The one thing I don't care for is the constant need to add hearts in all the recent releases, even on the Conch, which would have been perfectly lovely without that honking heart.   I guess that the longer we collect these beads, the more confident we are in our choices.

Agree no more hearts!

My pink beads are weak.  I can justify a couple more.


Mine are strong (very) but I love that one Embarassed

I'm not sure re. the barrels...I think it's the difference in width but I would like to see them...I tend to prefer rounder beads.

Me too, but I like this shape. I'm just unsure about its width. It could be too wide for a bracelet.

Oh my, I had my first look at the spring collection and now I am a bit worried Shocked

I like many of them cyclops

So if the beads turn out to be as fine and detailed as the photos indicated, I might just be tempted to get:

Gentle Waves
New Horizons
Compass
Positive No
Wisest of Souls
Wild Cherry Lock
Jewel of the Sea

The Azure kit (without the two fringe ones which I already own)
Sea Glow

That is way to many to like - but let's see if they are as good in real life as on the promotion photos.

If I have any money left later in the month, I think I will buy Sea Anemone and Pink Conch.  I will have a good look at Mermaid Companion, Climbing Frog and Path of Life.

I noticed that as soon as Christmas was over my thoughts turned to the January Spring release! Razz My list includes mostly silvers (Gentle Wave, Path of Life, Leaves) but also the hematites possibly and the Anemone and Dotted Conch glass. The two-part fish with the dots is fabulous but I don't have a necklace (yet Twisted Evil ).

Checking the spring preview pics helped me a lot not to buy many beads in December. Laughing
Hopefully I won't rush out and buy everything that's' on my wishlist, but I want that Dodo (in fact, I want it now!) Still three weeks to wait.....

Wow, there are at least five beads I'd buy immediately, that's not good, I don't want that release to become such expensive for me Laughing

The only must-have for me is Guardian of Nature . . . and there's a good chance I'll want the Wild Cherry lock.

I showed a picture of Mermaid Companion to my boyfriend and he promptly burst out laughing at it and his explanation was that it 'looked stupid'.

I don't know what they are thinking with the Dragonfly - it's all blobby and rubbish.

There are several that I want but I'm a sucker for ocean themes!

Oh dear, oh dear, DH has zero interest in my beads, says they all look alike to him and he can't tell the difference between any of them. cyclops  I honestly think he'd have been happier if I'd started collecting diamonds, at least they'd be something he could understand. Doesn't matter, it's just my thing.

Mermaid´s companion reminds me of the Grimm´s Tale „The Fisherman and his wife“ and a scene in „Kull the Conqueror“ where they are on a boat and this huge fish is being cut open and ... I will stopp here Wink But I love the dragonfly and many of the others Smile

I saw the new collection again yesterday.  My LD got the beads in and let me come in and hand pick my pre-order.  There are so many beads that I love, I ended up ordering too many!

My impression of the collection:
Flying free - LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!

Hematite - Very shiny, some color variation which I noticed more in the red and green.  The red looks very purplish/red/pink in person.  The green varied from green to grayish green.  The colors on the yellow ones I saw looked very similar.  I only saw one blue one, so no comparison for that one.  Also some size variation in the thickness of these beads too.  I ordered a green one and a yellow one.

Pink conch - yep, I hate pink, but almost bought a pink bead--just gorgeous, so all you pink lovers definitely need to check that one out!

Live, Love & Forgive - Thought I would like it and loved it--great bead good size (especially for $31) and shows nicely on the chain.

Life & love - Had no plans to order this...it has a heart...but it also has a beetle and now I have a new theme for my Valentine's bracelet.

Dodo - I had to order this because it is a bird.  It does have great detail, but is a little small.  Doesn't flip as much as I expected it to.

Neptune's promise - will get this later, great neutral bead

Compass - Good detail, but very thin and light.  I will probably get it later, but wished it was heavier.

Sea glow - I wanted to love it and brought inner glow and blizzard for direct comparison.  It does glow (unlike blizzard) but nothing like inner glow, so I did not order that one.

Thanks for the preview Very Happy
It sounds exciting and I am looking forward to seeing the new beads next week.
Hardly can wait for the Dodo.
What about the lock and path of life?
Hope both won't be too light weighted.
Do the sea anemone match the aurora beads?
I will limit myself to one (only one!) pink bead.

My dealer didn't get the lock...she somehow missed clicking that box on the order--so I didn't get to see it.  Path of light was nice, I don't remember how heavy/light it was.  I think sea anemone would coordinate with aurora--by the way have you seen the new ooaks that look like aurora?

Good luck limiting yourself to one pink bead.  Pink conch was really beautiful and the sea anemone is a very delicate pretty bead too.  Maybe you should limit yourself to two  Laughing Laughing

I am looking forward to seeing this release IRL, I have seen the blue and green hematite which were being worn singly on bangles with the silver leaf beads flat against them vertically. I thought that looked really effective.

These are the terrible photos I took while playing with them at the shop.  I only took a few beads with me to compare with the hematite and then put the silvers I was ordering on the bracelet I was wearing to see what they would look like.

Absolutely love the Dodo bounce  and the Hematite is really growing on me.
Nothing beats IRL pics  Wink

We hardly ever get to see new ooak here. My LD don't stock them as they would have to take the set of three and end up with 3 to 4 that no-one wants to buy. I am not on facebook, so I have to give up on ooak. Nevertheless, do you know, where to find a pic?

The Dodo is cute and I like it, though I don't usually do animals. Love the live, love and forgive. I like the knot look. Not sure about the hematite. I wish they had done a natural one. I would like to see the chakra bead.
Thanks for the preview.

I am surprised at the size difference in the hematites, I thought they would be more consistent, like the pink and turquoise agates.

They were pretty similar just a little difference in the thickness.
