Today Beadsaholic brings a review of TAO Roar!
TAO aka The Art Oblivion has released their very first official glass bead following after four stunning barrel silvers (reviews can be seen here). This beautiful bead is a perfect reminder to find our voice and let it ROAR!
TAO Roar is a beautiful chunky glass bead with a sterling silver universal core, you will find several shades of blue from navy, royal, teal and sky blue, along with beautiful silvery flecks throughout creating a beautiful tiger pattern. This bead truly grabs the light and sparkles! You will find that these beads run an average size of around 15 mm high x 8 mm wide. Roar retails for $65.
“The greatest fear in the world is of the opinions of others. And the moment you are unafraid of the crowd you are no longer a sheep, you become a lion. A great roar arises in your heart, the roar of freedom.”
― Osho, Courage: The Joy of Living Dangerously
“We are being called, do you hear it?
We are being called to dive deep into the Ocean of ourselves,
into the silence and solitude found leagues below,
And outside of the influence of others,
rise with the swelling tides of our truth with a ROAR to the shore!
We are being called
To cultivate compassion and care
And protect all that is vulnerable
Loudly and Proudly
With a ROAR!
We are being called
To RESIST systems that do not have the best interests of humanity in mind
To ROAR for what is just and right, not for some, but for all.
I offer ROAR as a talisman, invitation, and reminder to find your voice and use it! To offer you ROAR loudly and with your own fierce flair, these times need you!” ~ TAO
The next three photos were taking in indoor lighting.
In the first photo above and the photo directly below were taking outside to show how beautiful these colors are in the sunlight.
I really love the navy and teal in the Roar bead and in this composition I decided to try to accentuate the teals in this bead by pairing it with OHM String theory and Venetus alongside TAO In Awe and In Search on a Trollbeads bangle.
There is magic in the galaxy and we each have a journey and in this composition I wanted to harness the stars in this magical path with OHM Beads and TAO! This bracelet is finished off with the Stars lock from Redbalifrog.
Overall, this is a beautiful glass bead and will work in any composition or collection. Size wise it is comparable to True Beadz and Dream Glass Art.
