The Enchanted Forest Collection will be available January 19th and today I’ve got some photos to share. Let’s start with my personal favourite, the Enchanted Peacock Pendant ($115) (all prices in USD), designed by Kristian Krysfeldt, featured here on the Fantasy Necklace with Peacock Pearl ($145), designed by Lise Aagaard. Click on the video to see the other side. I think it’s an incredible statement piece and if I had been buying something from this collection, this would be how I would spend my money.
The Blooming Katniss Pendant ($55) will have many uses and I like it on the necklace. The back of it has two loops. I couldn’t make a combo on a bracelet I was happy with so will be looking to see what others do!
The necklace itself is so beautiful and here I’ve added in an Amethyst, Black Onyx and the Shimmer Royal Bead. The little silver bead on top is the new Life Circle.
Here is the elegant Peacock Lock ($55), designed by Kristian Krysfeldt.
The earrings are super pretty! Designed by Lise Aagaard, there are White Pearl Oval Drop, Peacock Pearl Oval Drops, White Pearls Round Drops and Peacock Pearl Round Drops, all meant to be worn with Earring Hooks. Each pair of earrings is $125 and the Earring Hooks range from $25-117. The Blooming Katniss Earrings are designed by Søren Nielsen and are $55.
The Unfolding Ring is another design by Søren Nielsen and it’s a gorgeous statement piece. ($115)
There is one Spacer with this release and it’s called Lightning Bud, designed by Søren Nielsen. ($45)
Now for the glass, always my favourite part of a bead collection, no matter what the brand.
There are two sets, at $175 each. This is the Enchanted Animal Kit, designed by Tenzin Phuntsok and Kalden Chophel, of the Winter Wonder Kit fame.
Individually the beads cost $35.
The Wonderland Kit was designed by Tashi, Dhundup and Dolma, who also designed the Enchanted Day’s Kit.
I tried a couple of bangles using some of the new beads.
Lastly, here are the silver beads. The Life Circle at $25 is going to be one I will buy more of. I love little beads like this as spacers. It’s designed by Mette Saabye.
The Peacock Feather Bead is such a great small size. I think this one will be quite popular. It’s $35 and designed by Kristian Krysfeldt.
The Flying Fish Bead is also $35 and designed by Aleksandra Kuczynska.
The Wilderness Bead and Noble Deer Bead are both designed by Josefine R Smith and cost $45 each.
The Response Bead is $55 and designed by Søren Nielsen. It will be a great focal bead as it’s fairly big.
There are three monkey beads at $55 each, designed by Thomas Cenius. My fabulous is the first one with the little peace sign!
…& Harmony Bead
Here is a size comparison photo with all the silver pieces.
It was a lot of fun playing with these beads today. Obviously one day isn’t enough time to fully grasp the many possibilities for these beads, but I hope you’ve enjoyed this look and that the photos might prove useful for decision making.
Do let me know if you have any favourites!

Hi Martha! It’s a very pleasant surprise to get a post from you tonight. There is one piece that is the overall, must have winner of this collection… and that is The Enchanted Peacock Pendant. I cannot tell you when I last had a necklace on….but it’s been many, many years! I will be getting that pendant and the Fantasy Necklace with Peacock Pearl to wear it on. Now, I’m not saying there’s not other beads that I like here….but the pendant and necklace comes first.
Hi Suzanne! Yes, I just got the beads yesterday but have to start writing report cards tomorrow so thought I’d get it done! For me, the Enchanted Peacock Pendant is so beautiful that I would have forgone any other purchases in order to buy it. It’s such a timeless piece, one that I will wear for years to come. The necklace is also so lovely, such a rich colour. Thanks for commenting Suzanne! In a couple of days I’ll have a Ohm Beads post and then one of those brilliant spinning bead boxes like Julia has should be arriving soon! 😱

Oh, that jewelry box is incredible! Of course, that means they’ll be a need to buy more True Beadz…to help fill it up.
Funny you should say that, as I might have recently purchased a couple…😀

My favorite is the same as yours, the Enchanted Peacock pendant. I would like to see it in person to get a better idea of the size and how it hangs on a necklace. I like the animal print kit, but there’s nothing that’s saying, “Buy me now,” to me. Not like the fall collection, where there was so much I wanted right away. My problem is I have so much Troll glass it takes a lot to get me excited these days. I may well end up getting some from that kit (and I do like the whole kit) but it’s not a priority. Just as well, with the True Beadz retirement that was just announced – I did some damage there the last few days picking up some beads that have been on my wish list for a while but that I figured there was no rush to buy. I really should make more of an effort to stay on top of things there in future, knowing quantities are going to be limited since there’s only so much one person can make. Oh, for that elusive money tree!
Well, the nice thing about this release is that there is time to ponder what would fit in well with an existing collection. The animal print kit seems to be an early favourite with quite a few people. I like how the zigzag beads have a modern feel to them. I think a lot of the hard core bead collectors went a little overboard with the True Beadz recently, ha ha!
The two striped ones are the ones that most caught my fancy too. The peacock one is fun, but I do have a couple of S&B peacock uniques already. But I keep making bracelets up in my head using multiples of the two tiger beads here.
I like the Katniss pendant too now that I see how it looks on the fantasy necklace. I have the cherry blossom splitter, which is very pretty, but sometimes want a change from. I wish I could find a nice abstract one though, since I’m not always in a flower mood.

Abstract beads are so useful, aren’t they?
Thank you for these beautiful photos! The all collection is great, but the Enchanted Animal kit is still my favorite…I love opaque beads so this kit is just amazing for me! Life Circle is a tiny silver bead which I absolutely must have, I think more than one! I love the new spacer as well and your photo suggests me it will be pretty with Sweet Berries Spacer… :))))
Hi Roberta! Life Circle is such a cute bead and will be so useful. I can picture using it as a topper for Fantasy Necklaces and as a spacer between beads. It’s good that it’s not too expensive! I look forward to seeing your pictures on Instagram, as always!
Hi Martha, love the pictures. I hadn’t really appreciated the depth of colour of the Fantasy Necklace, but it’s really gorgeous.
Will definitely be purchasing a couple of the Life Circle and Feather Peacock silver beads. When it comes to the glass, I keep changing my mind about what I like. So that means I will have to go and buy these in person 😄
But with the TrueBeadz retirement…the Trollbeads glass might have to wait!! Decisions, decisions!
PS. Would be lovely to see a macro shot of some of the big silver beads whenever you get a chance 😊
Hi Marisa! All the pictures of the silver beads are macro shots (I think just 7x though), but I can add videos of them later today. Videos take far less time to do, ha ha ha! 😀
Thanks for the preview!
I was waiting for live pictures of the peacock pendant, and your little video was even better! It’s my favorite piece of this collection, and really my favorite Trollbeads design out of everything I’ve ever seen.
I’ve already spent way too much on Trollbeads in the past month, but luckily my birthday is coming up soon!
Happy Birthday in advance! The pendant would be a fantastic present!
I love all your pix in this post so much – you kind of
Can’t go wrong here as there is so much depth and variety between these two kits. This is trolbeads strongest glass release in my opinion in quite some time. I think my three favorite glass beads are the Prehnite peacock, Garnet feathers and blaze stripes. I like the opaque beads a lot as well just not in a rush for those as I don’t do much animal print. As for the silvers I like the little silver peacock feather and love flying fish simply because of you! Never saw it from
That angel before and I really adore it 🙂 thanks!!
Hi Alex! I’m so glad you like the little fish bead. As soon as I put it on the bangle I also really liked it. I will definitely use it in the summer time when we go to the beach. It is by the same designer who also made the flip flops, which I also love. Glad the pictures were of help!
Martha, I just saw your bangle on Instagram with your son’s peacock feather. Wow!
Thanks Suzanne! He saw my iPad opened up to the Trollbeads page and said, “I have a peacock feather.” This after I had taken all my photos yesterday, ha ha ha!
I will likely end up with all of Soren’s silvers! And the three monkeys.
The glass will have to be handpicked, for sure, especially the Prehnite Peacock and the animal prints.
I will also admit to being partial to Søren’s silvers. Although I’ll be buying a few Life Circles, especially since I can’t find mine already! 🤦🏻♀️ The monkeys are really cute and considering how heavy they are, a good value, in my opinion.
Love your comparison shot of all of the silver pieces! My favorite silver bead is the Life Circle. I definitely want a pair of those. My favorite glass beads are the Stardust Stripe and Gleam Stripe beads. If I had a fantasy necklace, I would be strongly tempted by the peacock pendant. It’s really lovely.
Those are also my early favourite glass beads, April, as I think they will go with many things. That pendant is just stunning and I’m sure it will be at the top of many wish lists. The nice thing is it will be around for a long while, I think, so people can plan to buy it when it’s feasible.

I’m not a huge fan of this collection and I’ve taken good resolutions for the new year so I’ll pass. I do love the silver Peacock bead, the lock and the Enchanted peacock pendant with the new fantasy necklace but I’ll wait for the bead and the lock for a promotion. And the pendant is too expensive for me. And I don’t even have a fantasy necklace yet.
Your pictures are amazing though.
Well, sometimes it’s good to save money! There will always be other beads you like, there is no doubt. 😀
Gorgeous beads! Saw another spring bracelet on your instagram and feel in love with the clover beads on it. What brand are they?
The clover beads were part of a Trollbeads starter set. I think it was a couple of years ago and called an Anniversary Bracelet. I also think I saw them still for sale somewhere, but can’t remember where.
Wait, it was called the Lucky Friends Bracelet from 2016.
Thanks I’ll be on the look out!

Would you recommend a bead to put with the garnet feathers and temptation. I like to use one statement bead and one bead on each side that match. Only 3 beads on a bangle. I like this collection. Thank you.
Pam, I’ll make a reminder and look when I get home and then post a photo here. Might take me until tomorrow but I will try a few things.
Thank you for doing this.
Hi Martha, I’m obsessed with this collection and not even sure where to start!!! These pictures were all amazing and I thank you so much because it laid the collection out all so beautifully!!! I’ve been in love with trollbeads for years and had laid off for awhile and had just recently started buying a few more and now this gorgeous collection🙌 Oh the possibilities!!
Dawn, I’d love to hear which ones are your favourites from this collection!
