OHM Beads May 2020 Collection Review

Today Beadsaholic brings a review of the OHM Beads May Collection.

Today sees a live preview on Beadsaholic YouTube and here on the blog a complete review of OHM Beads upcoming May Collection that is rather small after the massive April’s release. In this release you will find an OHMLab, OHMistry and two exclusives. Though it’s a small release it truly has some lovely pieces in this release. My favorites being the Fairy Wren and Cat Fish! However, the Venetus looks very promising and I cannot wait to see it in person. I’m thinking it may go well with the Fairy Wren. The Kickin’ Peaches is adorable as women we all need a reminder to slice through our obstacles.

If you have Lilac Rain you will find that the Fairy Wren goes so well with it. You can see it below in this trippy Alice bangle.

OHM Beads Cat Fish is an adorably detailed cat with a mermaid or goldfish tail. I love the detailing of the fur and scales and the fact that it wraps around your bracelet. This bead measures approximately 13.35 mm high x 7.87 mm wide and retails for $50 / €52. Cat Fish is an OHMLab project with Оксана Петрова and is part of the regular collection.

“Have you heard the legend of the CAT FISH? The mythological CAT FISH — half-cat, half-fish — the feline mermaid.
The story begins long, long ago, a young cat was staring down into a crystal bowl, watching with fascination as many colored fish splashed and swam tantalizingly close to the surface. With a quick dart of its paw, the clever cat snared a slippery fish for their lunch. But this fish was different. It was a magical fish; and as you well know, magical fish can grant wishes when caught, if you agree to let them go. The cat had a tough choice: a savory lunch or a wish.
Suddenly, the wiggling fish caused the cat to lose its balance, and both cat and fish plunged into the pool. Most cats can swim if they have to, but this chasm was too deep and the current pulling down too strong. It looked like our poor kitty would surely drown.
“Since you did not really let me go,” said the magic fish, “I can only grant you half a wish.” The cat was in no position to argue. “Help me!” the cat mewed.
“Your half wish is granted!” said the fish. The cat was instantly transformed. Gills appear along the feline’s neck and a strong tail sprouts where their hindquarters used to be. Half a fish. Half a cat.
To this day, cats dip their paws into the fishbowl, hoping to catch that magic fish again to make their own wishes. And to this day, mother cats warn their kittens not to get too near the water. “Be careful,” they say, “the cat face you see reflected in the water may not be your own.””

OHM Beads Fairy Wren is a stunning glass barrel with touches of blue, purple, yellow, specks of blacks and bubbles throughout. This bead is an Australian exclusive inspired by the native bird. These beads run a standard size of around 15 mm high x 7 mm wide and retails for $45.

In this composition I embraced the beach life with Pacific Life, Cat Fish, Fairy Wren, Mama Aqua and The Art Oblivion Humor.

OHM Beads Kickin’ Peaches is an OHMistry project with Nichol Orozco of My Pretty Charmed Life, you can find her on Instagram and YouTube. This bead is super cute in a similar style to the Europe exclusive Bad Girl. She is in the same position that looks like she is flying through the air slinging a sword over her shoulder and throwing a Ninja Star. She is kickin’ peaches and taking names! This bead measures approximately 14.57 mm high x 13.09 mm wide and is limited to only one hundred and eleven (111) pieces. Kickin’ Peaches is set to release on May 1, 2020 at 11 am GMT-6 only on OHM Beads Website. This bead will retail for $45.

“Nichol is a bead collector who likes to express herself in bracelet designs. You can find the love she has for her daughter, her family, her career, and the bead community on her YouTube and Instagram page. At a young age, she set sights on leaving her small city to focus on her career. She found herself in a top-performing team surrounded by others with similar goals and they dubbed themselves “South Region Ninjas.” While she moved on eventually as that organization morphed into something else, the ninja spirit never left those who once belonged. Kickin’ a$$ and taking names was the name of the game and what she strives for in everything she does.

She currently has a little ninja in training, her daughter Presley, that she includes in her bead collecting shenanigans – including helping her create her box art for her bead.

Nichol believes everyone has an inner ninja. She had always wanted a female ninja bead but never found one. Until now… thanks to a collaboration with OHM Beads she can now introduce KICKIN’ PEACHES – the baddest female ninja out there!

KICKIN’ PEACHES is a state of mind. It is about setting a goal and not letting anything get in your way as you accomplish it at the highest level possible! We are faced with obstacles that want to slow us down. When that happens – get on your ninja suit, put on your game face, and get ready to kick some major peach!

Representing all the bad a$$ women out there that don’t let anything get in their way! KICKIN’ PEACHES reminds us we can learn from and embrace our failures and get back up even stronger.

Whatever goals you set for yourself, no matter how big or small – make sure you are KICKIN’ PEACHES!

The limited-edition release of KICKIN’ PEACHES is part of Project OHMistry and is limited to 111 signed and serialized pieces. A certificate of authenticity is included.”

Here I have combined Kickin’ Peaches with the three retired glass beads, Kiss, Happy Grave and Bad Girl.

OHM Beads Venetus is the new exclusive bead for Europe and hopefully I’ll have you a review of this bead soon, so stay tuned..

“We are reminded of the Venician waters weaving the city full of boats. This European Exclusive design features coloring from greens to blues.”

I’m also including my Video Preview of this collection, so that you can get a close look at these beads.

Overall, I think this is a great release and I think many of you will like some of the beads in this release. All will basically work in any collection.
