Novobeads Spring 2013 Review

novobeads-spring-2013-bracelet1The Novobeads Spring 2013 collection debuted a couple weeks ago, and I have been eagerly awaiting the beads from this collection. Two pieces from this release totally captured my attention – the Tree of Life dangle and the Leaves charm and I received* them late last week. I am happy to report that they do not disappoint!

As I mentioned in the release post I have been absolutely obssessed over the Tree of Life, both for the lovely faceted green gem and for the detailed sculpting of the tree that the charm features. As you can see the pictures, the bead fairly glows in the light and the silver cap is an intricate latticework of foliage. It’s fast become one of my favorites from the Novobeads line. The other charm I requested was Leaves; being a nature lover and as an homage to the season I knew I had to have it.  The leaves overlap one another and form the shape of a barrel, much like the Trollbeads LE Dutch Tulip. It is such an elegant and versatile charm, it can be paired with any theme or design.

I am continually impressed by this brand and I definitely think it’s one worth checking out. Novobeads have large diameter cores and are compatible with most major bracelet brands including Pandora and Trollbeads. The charms can be ordered online from the Novobeads website and they offer free shipping in the US. For this bracelet, I added some orange with the vibrant greens to make it really pop and I’m loving this effect. Are you intrigued by Novobeads? Have you tried them out yet?

    Hey Leann! 🙂 What a beautiful bracelet you created. 🙂 The Tree of Life is a stunning charm, truly unique! I personally don’t own any Novobeads, but I wouldn’t mind Tree of Life being my first purchase! 🙂
    Also, what stands out to me is the retired aventurine charm, love! 😉

      Thank you! I think the greens really glowed on this bracelet. 🙂 I’ll be featuring some of their other silvers coming up and they’ve really impressed me!

    you really present them well! but hm i think if i was going to venture into another brand it would definitly be ohm or if i wanted a different look, troll. Don’t think i’ll put any time or money into this particular brand but who knows! I’ve snooped around there website before but didnt really “click” with it

    • Leann

      It’s always hard to get into another brand especially when there’s so many on the wish list! But Novobeads is definitely worth a second look at, in my opinion ;).

    I love that you used the TB’s orange Easter Egg here! Love the idea!

      Thanks, Faye! It worked perfect together :).
