Barbärica New Collection Review

Today Beadsaholic brings news of a new release from Barbärica!

Today we will be taking a look at several new beads from Barbärica, a fairy new brand (introduction here). In this release you will find lots of texture and color that can be used perfectly in a Summer or Autumn theme.

Barbärica Rosemary is from the Spice Market collection and is a beautiful lime green that has a matte texture that reminds me of sea glass. This bead has a universal core which allows it to fit all major brand carriers and is an average size of about 15 mm high x 8 mm wide. Rosemary retails for €30, price includes vat.

Barbärica Saffron is also part of the Spice Market collection but in a nice ambery yellow with matte sea glass texture. This bead has a universal core which allows it to fit all major brand carriers and is an average size of about 15 mm high x 8 mm wide. Saffron retails for €30, price include vat.

Barbärica Plum is part of the Cocktail Collection and is a beautiful plum color with an ice like texture all the way around. This bead has a universal core which allows it to fit all major brand carriers and is an average size of about 15 mm high x 8 mm wide. Plum retails for €34, price include vat.

Barbärica Vodka as you can tell is also from the Cocktail collection and is a beautiful shade of vodka, if you google purple blue you will find this color and Vodka is the name. This color would be perfect for winter! This bead has a universal core which allows it to fit all major brand carriers and is an average size of about 15 mm high x 8 mm wide. Vodka retails for €34, price includes vat.

Barbärica 007 is part of the Spy Collection and has a black base with a diamond (most likely CZ) encased inside clear glass. This bead has a universal core which allows it to fit all major brand carriers and is an average size of about 15 mm high x 8 mm wide. 007 retails for €39, price includes vat.

Barbärica Atlantis is part of the Mediterranea Collection and has a blue to aqua base with some shimmers encased in clear glass. This bead has a universal core which allows it to fit all major brand carriers and is an average size of about 15 mm high x 8 mm wide. Atlantis retails for €34, price includes vat.

Barbärica Constellation is a stunning bead that is part of the Mediterranea Collection and is a teal blue with a silver and glitter galaxy.  This bead has a universal core which allows it to fit all major brand carriers and is an average size of about 15 mm high x 8 mm wide. Constellation retails for €39, price includes vat.

Barbärica Boulders Collection is simply stunning! You will find Lady Granate, Boulder Opal Pearl and Boulder Opal Copper in the next two photos. I really love the organic sides that look like rock with the beautiful dichroic glass throughout the middle. These beautiful beads have universal cores which allow them to fit all major brand carriers and are an average size of about 15 mm high x 8 mm wide. Boulders retails for €34, price includes vat.

Barbärica Aquaria is a beautiful sea themed bead with seaweed, fish and sea urchins encased in clear glass. This bead has a universal core which allows it to fit all major brand carriers and is an average size of about 16 mm high x 9 mm wide. Aquaria retails for €39, price includes vat.

It seems the embedding is currently not working on YouTube, so if you would like to watch the up-close video of this collection visit Beadsaholic YouTube Channel <here>. I must warn you this video was taken outside, and it is currently love bug season here in the southern part of the USA.

Here I went with a simple composition of Barbärica and Niwabeads on an Ohm Bangle.

The Barbärica Plum looks so beautiful mixed with the Niwabeads on a Trollbeads Twisted bangle.

The contrast of the Barbärica Plum and Vodka looks is so yummy together. Seen here with Redbalifrog silvers on a Trollbeads Twisted bangle.

Here I went with a Sea theme using Redbalifrog sea silvers, Barbärica glass beads on a Trollbeads bracelet with Crab lock.

Add a little Rosemary to the mix with Plum and Vodka and we have an arm party going on. Seen here with Niwabeads on a Trollbeads Twisted bangle.

I really love the Boulders in a sea theme for some reason. Seen here with both Redbalifrog silvers on a Trollbeads bangle with Trollbeads spacers.

Another sea theme that I am obsessed with! I really love how the Redbalifrog Sea Horses frame the beautiful Aquaria.

In this composition I went with a celestial theme with Boulders and Redbalifrog.

And of course, these new beads work perfectly in an Autumn theme. Seen here with Trollbeads, Redbalifrog, TPOA on a Trollbeads bracelet with the Redbalifrog Sunflower and Bee Lock.

Overall, I think this is a beautiful new collection and I really love the boulders and look forward to playing more with this entire collection. I think they would work in many different compositions.
