New old ooaks...

New old ooaks... Empty New old ooaks...

Post by kyhalfpt on Mon Jan 18, 2016 1:45 pm

When I saw all the new ornament and longevity ooaks appear, I immediately had a list of ooak patterns I wish they would start making again. I am sure we all have our favorites! So--what would everyone like to see TB make more of?

My list:
1. Tigers - white, yellow, orange, brown black or green
2. Caterpillar style--not the critter one - any color
3. Pumpkin like ones
4. Raised buds - especially yellow or orange
5. Opaque based
6. Comets

I am sure I will could come up with more...

Good topic!

I would like to see more Chess uniques.

I like the raised ribbon style as well.

Opaque-based, for sure. I'm fed up with glass beads that disappear from the side, that are nothing but clear glass.

I'm not sure I want to see any coveted ooaks re-appear any more than treasured old silvers.  Unless they make them distinctive in some way distinguishable from the oldies.

But if I were to find a stash of old ooaks in some dusty shop somewhere, I'd want to find comets, ornaments, scales, conch fish, and cherry tree styles, as well as opaque-based squiggly, dotty abstract oldies.

I know this always comes up and I agree that I don't ever want a direct re-release of any bead that TB has made and is retired, coveted and valuable to collectors. But, I would be fine with a new twist on any retired beads. I would however, be fine with a direct re-make of the "completely unavailable" museum beads--Big owl, mother duck, greenlandic woman--but ONLY if the beads were clearly labeled as a re-make or stamped with the production year...something that clearly identifies that they are NEW.

I would prefer that the new ooaks be different than the old ones. I guess the presence of a stamp is different already--but I would prefer that the design be somewhat different too. The new ornaments and longevity look pretty similar to the old ones to me. I know someone on FB posted a picture with a new and old ornament and the line on the new ones was a bit thinner--but otherwise looked the same.

Opaque cream bead with a pattern of circles and moons in green, similar to the new "dotty" bead. I doubt it has a name, but saw this unique bead 10 years ago when I first started collecting, a few more since then, never was able to find one, and would love to see more like it.
(I agree with Linda Jo, love opaques and not those glass beads that disappear from the sides.)

I am a bit out of glass wishes ATM (except a longevity): I enjoy, what I have, but don't feel the need to buy more - what's basically a good thing.

From what I have seen, the new longevity bead has two horizontal lines, while the old ones only had one.

Quite some of the old opaque uniques are still sitting at LD's, though these are not the pretty ones.

I would not be happy to see any old bead remade,Mad  As much as I would love some of the the old glass beads, its not right to re-release them or any silver museum beads. Some collectors have paid big money for rare beads and if you re-made them with new stamps the value of the old ones would plummet. And that would defiantly make people stop buying Trollbeads.  

I think if you are a collector you just have to accept the fact that there are some beads you will never own and thats the way life goes Neutral

Completely agree with you, niceday, but I know this topic splits the Troll community like no other!!
