Today on Beadsaholic blog brings us the preview of Ohm Beads June BOTM Heart of Stone!
Heart of Stone, by OHM, can be worn on your bracelet or OHM Ball
Necklace. The June 2017 Bead of the Month, a limited edition
release, is inspired for Father’s Day but can be worn all year
long to show solidarity and support for the Dads in our lives.
Only 1,111 have been created. They are sealed in a stone box, to
open break the lid. What will you find inside? Each bead is
serialized and engraved with an individual code. A mini
certificate of authenticity with the number in the series is
Once there was a happy man. He loved his life and the people
around him. He helped those who needed help, and didn’t feel
obligated to do so. He loved his family above all. He did what
he had to do to support his children and spouse. He didn’t want
them to suffer. But, times were tough. He didn’t have enough to
reach The Dream™. The family got by. They had each other.
On the way to work, while waiting for the bus, the man stood by
a familiar lamp post plastered in flyers. One read: “Black
Magic. Live Your Dream! You have enough love to give. Call now!”
The voice, soft enough to give you tingles, whispered into his
ear. They told him everything he wanted to hear – that he was
suffering – that he wanted more – that he could get more. The
voice encouraged him to dream bigger. They offered him empathy
The man said “All I need is money. I want to be rich. I want to
give my family everything they want!”
“Anything is possible,” the voice said, “but you have to pay the
price. In return for financial stability I am asking for your
heart. It is a simple transaction. You will give me your heart
and I will give you this one, just like yours, but stone. Same
same, but different. No surgery required!” the voice laughed.
The man agreed.
He woke up in a big empty house, unhappy, and totally alone.
What’s wrong with me? He thought. What happened to my life?
Suddenly memories flooded his brain. He did get rich after all,
not quickly but over time. Money didn’t bring happiness. He
didn’t notice the time as it rippled away from him. He didn’t
notice his family evolve, his children grow, and leave. Now an
old man, a heart of stone left him unable to feel the good in
life. Unable to feel his love and affection his partner and
children left him. Unable to be close, his friends turned away.
The man needed to go for a walk. He was devastated. Becoming
wealthy, was it worth it?
The man found himself staring mindlessly at a tv screen in a
shop window with candy colored flickering images dulling his
senses begging for attention. Then he saw it. An ad flashed
“Black Magic. Stop Dreaming. Call Now!” He fixated on the
numbers, 555-1111. He called.
After a few taps and clicks on the line, a soft voice answered.
“What do you want?”
“I want my old self back. I want my life back. I want my heart
back. I want my feelings back. I want to be able to feel again
and screw the money, I’ve always had enough, not more, not
less.” The man cried uncontrollably.
He woke early Sunday morning. Freshly brewed coffee called him
from the kitchen. He heard his children laughing and a puppy’s
bark. “Oh! It was just a dream!” he thought. Thankfully, it was
just a dream… He felt his heart relax. He felt it pump. A
shiny, loving, full of life heart; he could feel the ends of the
earth in his blood. He was alive, again, like never before.
What happens going forward? We don’t know.
Above is a photograph courtesy of Ohm Beads of the packaging of the June BOTM Heart of Stone. This is a blind bead of the month, which means we won’t know what the bead is until someone smashes open their package. I can tell you that there are three different finishes which will be randomly distributed around the world. Limited to 1,111 beads, each bead will be numbered.
