Today Beadsaholic brings a review of Ohm Beads latest release.
Today is Preview Day for Ohm Beads and I’m doing something a little bit different as I’m giving you guys a full review with photos I’ve taken and am including a link to my YouTube Channel, so that you can see these beads up close in all their glory! In this article we will take a look at the bead of the month, five new glass beads, one European exclusive and two new store exclusives. I will also be reviewing soon two more beads releasing in October, so stay tuned for those.
For October Ohm is not holding back, I totally love this release and I think everyone will find a bead they like this month.
Ohm Beads Who Dead is a fabulous Owl with a sugar skull motif set in sterling silver (You can see this guy up close all the way around on my YouTube Channel). This bead is so detailed with his feathers, skull on his chest and his little talons. This bead measures approximately 15.23 mm high x 12.32 mm wide and weighs 4.6 grams. Who Dead is the October bead of the month and is limited to five hundred and fifty-five (555) pieces, comes in special packaging seen below and retails for €78, price include vat.
“WHO dead? Remember them. They live on in our minds and memories, as too shall we in others when our time comes. Love is the thread that ties us all together. Love is the wisdom to persevere through difficulty and stay connected. The web of life is stronger when we are all linked through love.”
Packaging is too cute and will hold a full bracelet.
Ohm Beads Blackberry has a black core encased in clear with a dimpling texture. This is a great addition to the previously released fruit designs like Strawberry, Orange and Lemon. This bead is a standard size 15 mm high x 8 mm wide barrel shape glass bead. Blackberry retails for €41, price include vat.
“The black fruit, preserved with the sweetness of the Summer intact, bottled and saved for when we need it most. Dive deep into darkness this season and spread some of that saved summer sweetness on those who need it most. Give freely from your stores and know that you will be repaid in kind.”
Ohm Beads Cascades of Color 2.0 Collection consist of four beads The Next Blooms, Across The Koi, Fall In The Lake and Pits & Pith. Each bead is beautifully done with vibrant colors. I love this collection and am so happy to see these in this release. Each bead is a standard size of 15 mm high x 8 mm wide and retail for €47, price include vat.
“THE NEXT BLOOMS, glass (purple base) – Take this time to look forward while honoring the past. Remind yourself of the immense depth of the forests and of the possible meanings of life. We are here together at this moment able to look through The Now into The Next.”
“ACROSS THE KOI, glass (orange base) – The bright colors of the koi remind us again of the beauty in the diversity of life on this planet. As we scatter about attending to our daily business jumping from stone to stone across the pond, remember that not so deeply beyond the fallen leaves at the surface of the water lies infinite possibilities. Witness the magnificent shifting of light every day.”
“FALL IN THE LAKE , glass (blue base)- Ice is beginning to form. From the first ground frosts to the shimmer of a clear lake’s thin sheet; the fallen bits of color catch in the evening light. Ranging from pumpkin to cinnamon the radiance of the season is on full display. Reflecting light at a deep forest pond or a high mountain glacial lake. Stay attuned to the stillness of this season and remember to rest yourself for the journey ahead.”
“PITS & PITH, glass (red base) – After you’ve enjoyed the delicious bounty of the fruit do not hesitate to embrace the beauty of that which is left behind. The final fruits of the year are ripening as the preservation of the bounty of the harvest heralds the transition into the holiday season and winter to come. Enjoy every moment now, and savor each bit of the sweet fruit that clings to the refuse.”
Ohm Beads Bad Girl is such an adorable detailed bead with her bad girl attitude and has an ax to grind, literally in swing mode! It is such a great bead for Halloween. This bead measures approximately 13.92 mm high x 6.33 mm wide x 13.88 mm deep and weighs 2.6 grams. Bad Girl is a European exclusive, limited to three hundred and thirty-three (333) beads and retails for €47, price include vat.
“Ohhh, she is such a bad, BAD Girl. Our little lady may look sweet and cute — despite her scowl — with her button nose, her high ponytails and her striped knee-socks; but our junior femme fatale swings a mighty big ax. Is she a pint-sized superhero battling crime, monsters, or the forces of evil? Or is our leaping, ax-wielding maid the embodiment of evil herself? Perhaps an ax murderer or an agent of vengeance?
Today, young women are empowered to be independent and strong, and many embrace the idea of being a Bad Girl, who does as she pleases with fierce courage, refusing to conform, and answering only to herself. They aren’t looking for trouble.
Celebrate the bad girl in you with OHM’s leaping, charging, full-attack BAD GIRL. Take no prisoners! Something or somebody is gonna get cleaved in half!”
Ohm Beads Marmalade is a pretty orange base bead with specks of black throughout encased in clear glass. It is a standard size barrel bead that averages around 15 mm high x 8 mm wide. Marmalade is an at Exclusive only available at Perlen, only one hundred and eleven (111) beads and retails for €48.20, price include vat.
“Marmalade is usually distinguished from jam by two things: the use of citrus fruit — oranges, lemons, limes, grapefruit — and the inclusion of the fruit peel which adds a pleasingly bitter bite. The preferred fruit for most marmalade is the orange which has a high pectin content for nice thick marmalade and adds a zesty flavor.
Our beautiful OHM MARMALADE bead evokes flavors of bright, bitter orange and sweet seedy passion fruit stirred together with sugar and honey for a perfect topping on your favorite scone, biscuit, or muffin. Our marmalade bead adds zest and brilliant flavor to your bracelet and reminds you to start each day with passion, sunshine, and great taste!”
Ohm Beads Meteorite is a super cool bead that matches the RAWR collection perfectly! This bead has a stone like appearance and texture. Please note, that this bead runs a tad larger than standard glass and is the same size as other glass beads in the RAWR collection which is about 16 mm high x 8 mm wide. Meteorite is an exclusive at Perlen, only three hundred and thirty-three (333) beads and retails for €48.20, price include vat.
“A hunk of rock hurtling through space is called a meteoroid. If that meteoroid enters the Earth’s atmosphere, it enters as a blazing fireball called a meteor or shooting star. If that fiery chunk survives long enough to strike the Earth’s surface, it can be given the glorious moniker of meteorite.
Most meteoroids are made of rock, and as they blaze through our atmosphere, their surfaces melt and sculpt into various shapes, sometimes resulting in shallow thumbprint-like indentations on their surfaces called regmaglypts. As they decelerate, the molten surface of each meteorite solidifies into a thin fusion crust.
OHM is pleased to offer you a magnificent METEORITE inspired glass design, complete with regmaglypts and molten black coloring as proof of its long passage from the far reaches of deep space, through the fire here is not of atmospheric entry but OHM glass artist’s expertise. You too will cherish this little piece of the Universe and the promise of infinite adventure that it brings from a galaxy far, far away.”

I don’t have the original RAWR glass release but do have the second release and as you can see the Meteorite is a nice addition to the collection.
Pits & Pith goes nicely with the Paper Lanterns and Strawberry glass beads on the Navy Whip bracelet.
I had to create a sea theme as the purple in The Next Blooms matches the Slim Plant, and Mauve Stinger and the Fall in the Lake matches the Rise perfectly.
Now for a Halloween theme! How fun are these beads together?
This ended up being my first composition to wear. I love all the Cascade of Color together along with Who Dead.
I’m feeling bright and colorful today.
Overall, This is a fantastic release! I’m sure Who Dead will be a must have for all our Owl Collectors and is such a fun bead to add to a Halloween theme. All beads are fabulous, and I think many of you will like this release.
