Novobeads Summer 2013 Collection

novobeads-summer-2013-coverAnother fresh and exciting release from Novobeads as they present their Summer 2013 Collection. It’s finally officially summer, my favorite time of the year, and it’s definitely getting warmer. Introduced with this collection is their new Silk Wraps, for the unbelievable price of $14USD each, these colorful wraps provide a versatile way to wear your charms. There is no clasp, it is tied off at the ends and comes with an instruction book. With the hotter temperatures comes its own issues for wearing my bracelets, I find I get so sweaty that it’s uncomfortable to wear my normal stack. I’ll definitely be exploring the Silk Wrap as a light-weight alternative so look for a review soon.

We’ve seen the major brands focus on beach and marine life for this season so it’s great to see other themes explored with Novobeads. I’m most excited for the Beer Stein and the Paw print dangle. As I’ve gotten older (and started working), I’ve come to appreciate beer for its refreshingness and relaxation properties. I love coming home and sharing a cold one with my husband while we chat about our day and this will be perfect to represent our time together. The Paw footprint is absolutely adorable and I’ll be interested to see how big the Novobeads dangle compares with other dangles.

As a nod to the aquatic theme that’s in vogue this season comes the Novobeads Dolphin, a triplet of dolphins form a circle through which the bracelet goes through. It looks cute and will pair nicely with any of the other marine life beads from other brands. Rounding out the summer silver beads is the Adirondack Chair, a must for any lawn, patio, or yard. A symbol of summer fun and enjoying the sun, it’s great for any bracelet.

Along with this new release, Novobeads is also debuting a new set of delicious sweet treat inspired charms, the Macaroon collection. Rose gold, yellow gold, and rhodium plated, these rounded beads feature sparkling crystals on top and bottom creating a very elegant look. A bargain at $19USD a piece, these will add a touch of bling to your design.  I can’t wait to see these in person!  What’s your favorite from this collection?

      They look wonderful, I can’t wait to start playing with it. I’m curious at how easy it’ll be to tie it off.

    I have tried other brand silk wraps and didn’t care for them. These however appear to be more of a ribbon rather than a “cord”. How sturdy are these silk wraps? I felt the silk wraps I tried were a bit flimsy and that it would wear with time. Also, the ones I tried were worn tighter around the wrist’ I wastold it was due to a lot of stretching. Personally, I like to wear my bracelets a bit loose, especially when loaded up with charms.

      My silk wrap is in the mail! I couldn’t resist the Wild Rose, so I’m planning on doing a review in the next few weeks. I will let you know how sturdy these are, they look great don’t they? I love that you can make your own look ;).

    I’m not a big fan of the silk wrap look myself but I have to say that this tie dyed approach makes the wraps look much more interesting.

    LOVE the Adirondack chair! So whimsical and iconic for summer.

      I’ve got high hopes for the silk wraps! I hope they’ll be durable and easy to use. The adirondack chair is awesome! It’s a must for summer :).

    Checked with two of my local retailers, they have none of these in stock:( However the one is ordering the twilight silk wrap and adirondack chair for me! I’m soo excited to see the silk wrap! For $14 bucks how can you go wrong? Thinking I may just put the adirondack on there alone, or eventually a macaroon when my store gets them! Thanks for sharing this with us, this will be my first novobeads purchase as I am truly a Pandora girl!

      Oh nice, you actually have a local Novobeads dealer? I haven’t seen it in person, but the beads I’ve gotten have been amazing! I’m also excited for the silk wraps, what a great deal! I hope they’re as versatile and durable as they’re advertised. 🙂
