Nothing to catch my eye, except for the garnet. But I believe it must be picked out in person. But no TB dealer here Sad

I love the moonstone and garnet. Also the mushroom is so cute!  I also like some of the sparkle beads in colors I don't have so maybe the lime and dark blue. That is about it. Some of the beads I can't even tell what they are from the pictures.  I won't buy any silver designs that I can't tell what it is. What's the point?

The mushroom looks good but as s.one on another forum pointed out: could be a top-heavy hanger...Hopefully not...

I'm looking forward to seeing the new release irl but, atm, I'm leaning towards the quirky glass kit and the darker sparkly glass. I'm really hoping that the garnet will be more red than brown. I think this release has something for everybody though.

I like lots especially the Wicked Web bead and the Trick or Treat glass bead but sadly my bead budget is virtually non-existent these days!

Oh dear. I hate top-heavy hangers. Sad Hope it isn't.

I was thinking that, too. A lot of them look like rough carvings, not finished pieces.

I like a lot in this release, but there is also lots that is just not me, I used to feel I had to buy everything Troll released, not any more  Neutral

I love the sparkly glass, but a lot of them look like existing sparkly glass, is that a problem ?  if I buy what I think is a Scirocco and the shop thinks it's a Power of Hope does it matter ?

Power of Hope appears to have more beige and pastels than Scirocco. And fewer splotches of brown.

But I don't think it's going to matter until they retire the Scirocco or put it on sale. Both the same price now, I believe.

I don't follow new releases much any more, and had no idea what a Scirocco was Embarassed and had to google, apparently it's a Volkswagen Wink Shocked You would need some serious power of hope to get a brand new car for £25 Laughing Laughing

I like the sparkle kit, but we have seen this before. I find the most of the silvers a mess. The open work beads are nice, but I really do not care for open work beads.

For the first time in several years I feel tempted to buy a whole glass kit. The darker hues plus glitter of the Balance of Nature set are amazing! Right up my alley. I feel a bit sorry for the other glass kit though, but it will probably have its admirers as well, just not me.

As to the silvers, I will probably get the mushrooms to be company to my WT mushrooms, and my very first barrel shaped bead as well, the sea buckthorn, to wear as a single silver on a leather or cord.

The dragon, phoenix, merman and unicorn will be beads to see IRL, although I have decided to shun my miser of a local juweller who must have taken a fortune in bead money from me and never gave ANYTHING in return. Thankfully I live close to one of the major German online dealers and can go browsing their shop Very Happy

All in all, I think this is one of the more memorable releases and definitely a step back to the roots of trolldom. Hope to see more of this.

Aaaaw Grouphug  

I tried my best to avoid this danger zone forum, it gets so expensive to be here...  Neener
But I always gravitate back to it, because the people are so nice! Group hug
If TB really gets back to the roots, I'm sure I will be around much more often!

I love the look of this new release, I think it's the best in ages.  Not keen on the matchy open work stuff, very p@ndora, but the roughly finished silvers are cool and the crazy glass will be great for summer on leather I think.  Too 'loud' to work with other beads but a lot of fun by themselves.  I like the architectural look of the 'soft winds of change'( Laughing ) lock and the knot bead (starry something, the names are getting more and more obscure). Pretty examples of the darker sparkle beads are a must too.

Could see them irl today, well not all as some were missing (Phoenix, mushrooms, dragon......sadly)
Glass kits both nice, the glitter one pretty close to stock pics from TB.
The unicorn was so much nicer irl.
they had a nice garnet, left it for the moment as it was pretty dark. I had hoped for a more translucent one, but it was good quality.
The moonstone color was nice, left it too as it had a white spot looking as if this might be a spot to crack one day.

I ended up buying the Halloween glass as they had such a nice specimen with great details and the spider in the web.
I will check out another store tomorrow hoping they have nice stones, I really want a moonstone.
The blueberry was nice, in general the silvers they got were nicer irl than the stock pics .

Aaaa-HA! Confession time! Laughing Laughing Laughing

I'll probably go downtown to the store tomorrow, officially to pick up my new X lock, but of course to have a little look on the side...

I would bet on you loving the moonstone, color is right up your alley.
Plus it looks great together with the garnet, very autumnal.

I am dreaming of an all moonstone - garnet bracelet....
