The Novobeads Spring 2014 Collection came out a few weeks ago and I was immediately drawn to these pieces. This release is on the smaller side and is focused on spring and Easter. Nature charms and delicate egg motifs took center stage and today I’ll be reviewing the Curling Vine, Dainty, Spring Garden, and the White and Clear Pavé Egg. I was so excited to get the beads and was not disappointed.
As my readers may know, I’m quite obsessed with floral themed charms and I love anything to do with flowers, leaves, etc. and I have been very impressed with the quality and detailing of the Novobeads charms. I’ve reviewed a number of their flower beads and I’ve got a few more I need to photograph. The Curling Vine, Dainty, and Spring Garden are right up my alley and added to the fact that they have green accents and I’m won over! These beads make a cohesive set – each one uses mint CZ stones and features mainly leaves. The Curling Vine is a long wide piece and resembles two sprigs rolled together; Dainty is a smaller version of the Curling vine and is a small branch of leaves; and Spring Garden is a spherical design and continues with the foliage theme.
The new Eggs continue the look introduced with the sparkling macaroons in silver, gold, and rose gold finish. There are pavé set crystals all over the surface and they makes these ordinary items very glamorous. The innovative feature of these is the figure-8 core which allows them to hang right side up when used as a pendant on a necklace. There’s also a plain silver version is a great option for those that don’t go for the jeweled look.
Novobeads have large cores and can fit on all bracelets including Pandora, although their own bracelet is really unique and lovely. Perlen has been very busy in the past month and Novobeads is another brand that they’ve added to their shop – they’re the first European store to carry the line and offer free international shipping! While the main Novobeads site still haven’t added this collection to their website, it is available at Perlen now. What do you think of this collection?
