Today Beadsaholic brings a review of OHM Beads November Collection.
It’s OHM PREVIEW Day and OHM Beads has some truly lovely beads in store for us in November!
Note: I have misplaced my calipers and will add measurements later, so if you need these be sure to check back.
OHM Oracle is the 54th bead of the month and is limited to five hundred and fifty-five (555) pieces, each come in special packaging with a certificate. I truly love this design and the idea behind it! This bead is beautifully detailed on both sides with moving parts that reveal roman numerals on one side and symbols on the other side. Oracle retails for $150 / €156, price includes vat.
“Each face spins. There is a cut-out in the spinner to view which number or symbol it lands on. One face feature 12 roman numerals as it were a clock face, the other face has 12 randomized simple symbols. These symbols can be either interpreted on the fly, or pre-assigned meanings or ideas.
The idea is that it can be used as an oracle to help guide you in your day and in your life. Similar to OHM TAROT CARDS or CHI CHI STICKS 2.0.”
OHM At Least I’m Warm is a cute turkey on top of a pot over open flames. I love that OHM has included a turkey this year in the November release as it has been a tradition over the years, and they skipped the turkey bead in 2018. He is perfect for a Thanksgiving themed bracelet and is rather comical. At Least I’m Warm retails for $55 / €57, price include vat.
“Happy Thanksgiving from OHM HQ!”
OHM Listen to Love is a cool stethoscope design that is perfect for a Nurse, Doctor, EMT or anyone who just needs to listen to their heart a bit more. This bead works perfect as a bead, pendant or as a closure on the OHM Chunky or Whip Bracelets. Listen to Love retails for $35 / €36, price includes vat.
“Nurses are the backbone of any health organization. They do what needs to be done. They continually give and give no matter what while caring for those that need it most. They help, they heal, and they love.”
OHM Victoriana is a simple but beautiful bead and is one of my favorites from this release. I love the creamy tones, shades of sandalwood, with black flowers. This is a barrel shape bead as are all the glass beads in this release. Victoriana retails for $50 / €52, price include vat.
“Your imagination might carry you to a summer garden and High Tea with rich Devonshire cream and buttered scones and the equally delicious gossip of your fashionable Victorian friends. Or, perhaps, you are sitting in the soft light of a Tiffany lamp gazing out the delicate lace curtains at a playful game of croquet as you pen your morning correspondence to a secret admirer in an era when mail was delivered seven times a day, and you changed your exquisite dresses at least three times daily, including formal dress for dinner.”
OHM Movember is a sweet charity bead that OHM will donate a percentage to Testicular Cancer Research which in itself is a good reason to add this bead to your collection, besides we all need more grey beads! This is a barrel shape bead with a grey core black mustache encased in clear glass. I must confess that my bead doesn’t resemble a mustache, it looks like an abstract design, in the photos provided by OHM some looked like it. So, if you want a mustache then I suggest picking out your bead either in person or through a retailer online. Movember retails for $45 / €46, price include vat.
“Note: 11% of proceeds from sales of this bead from Nov 1 to Nov 30 will be donated to Testicular Cancer research.
November, how about Movember! This is traditionally when those moes who can grow a mustache do so to highlight the men’s health concerns like cancer (testicular and prostate) as well as mental health.”
OHM Out There, A Glass Collection
“Semiotics is the study of signs and symbols, as well as their interpretations. The ability to communicate an idea is nearly impossible. It is honestly magic that we do do it. When you are studied in stories, words, symbols, tropes, references, memes, gifs, emojis, etc., communication becomes possible. The sharing of knowledge fuels our species and allows us to reach for the stars.”
I really love this collection; it will fit in perfectly with my space themed beads. It goes really well with the Star Bijou exclusive Universe of Stars glass bead.
OHM A Sirius Wish is a cool looking bead with a dark core, shimmering flecks, and flecks of what looks to be a light grey or possibly white. This is a barrel shape bead and is a standard size. A Sirius Wish retails for $45 / €47, price include vat.
OHM Deep Blue is a gorgeous barrel bead with a dark core with shimmering glitter flecks throughout that catch the light perfectly like a billion stars in the sky. Deep Blue retails for $55 / €57, price include vat.
OHM Galaxy is simply stunning and my favorite out of the space collection. I love that this bead looks like a dark abyss with billions of stars sparkling in all different colors. I remember as a child laying in the yard watching the stars and swearing that they were changing colors with each twinkle. Galaxy retails for $60 / €56, price include vat.
OHM Lemon, A Glass Collection
“Who doesn’t love the sharp, clean smell or zesty taste of lemon? It is sunshine in your mouth. We love lemon cookies and pies, lemon tea, lemon marmalade, lemon pepper fish, ice-cold lemonade, or a zippy lemon twist in our favorite cocktail. In celebration of all things wonderfully lemon, OHM proudly presents this flavorful new assortment of bright, lemony glass beads: each one adding brilliance to your bracelet and a hearty spoonful of another favorite dessert.”
This is a fantastic collection of yellow beads that match perfectly! If you love yellow, then you will love these beads. Each bead retails for $50 / €52, price include vat.

OHM Rainbow Eucalyptus is my second favorite glass in this release, and I love wearing it with the Victoriana! This bead has a nice brown core with shades of brown and green lines going around this bead. This is an OHM Australia Exclusive and only two hundred and twenty-two (222) beads have been made. It is absolutely perfect for the Fall months. This bead will be available on OHM Beads website on October 25, 2019 at 8 am Gold Coast time. I’ll post a reminder closer to release. Rainbow Eucalyptus retails for $55.
“Symbolic of your own resilience to life’s wildfires. You are very special to all those who depend upon your varied talents. Your heart sings its own unique musical score deep within.”
OHM Odette an OHMist design by the lovely Rebecca Cresswell. This is a stunning Swan! The details are fantastic on this bead as you will see if you watch the video I’ve shared below. I love the feathering, and how the flippers look as though he is swimming. This bead is currently limited to one hundred and eleven (111) pieces, but if proven to be popular OHM may make it part of regular collection in the future. However, the first batch is numbered, comes with a certificate in an artsy packaging. Odette retails for $65 and will be available on November 8th, 2019 at 6 pm GMT on OHM Beads Website.
“This bead design is truly of magical proportions, entwining beauty and hidden meaning within her form. Inspired by the story ‘Swan Lake’ which is a timeless captivating love story about magical Swans.”
