Happy 12th Day of Beadmas!

Today Beadsaholic brings the very last giveaway of Beadmas and a mini review of OHM Beads Foggy.

I’ve hosted Beadmas for the last four years and I enjoy it every year, even though this time of the year is chaotic, it is always a lot of fun. So, today the last day of Beadmas I want to Thank OHM for all they have done over the years for the Bead Community, many things behind the scene without credit and with such huge generosity. The entire OHM Team world-wide are down to earth and just genuinely amazing people. I have met them all, but one and hope to meet up with the entire team again in the future. Beadmas and the Gnome festival have became annual events with so many host giving away free items to the OHMily community around the world. Plus, I’d like to Thank OHM for designing fantastic beads and allowing those of us in the community to have a hand in designing, too! In today’s giveaway here on the blog I would love to know what you are thankful for with OHM, maybe they have designed a special bead that means a lot to you, or maybe you have won a giveaway or have had great customer service. I want to hear It! This is a moment to have a positive thought about OHM and their relationship with us in OHMily. #ThankYouOHM

So to enter today’s giveaway:

This giveaway is here on Beadsaholic and will run for 24 hours. The winner will be chosen randomly. The prize will be $65 in OHM Bucks and Free shipping. You will need a My OHM Account on the OHM Beads Website in order to receive your prize, if you don’t have an account, please visit here and create a My OHM account.

  • Comment what you are thankful for to OHM.
  • If you are thankful for a bead design, I’d love to know which one and why?
  • Of course, if you haven’t already I would love for you to subscribe to emails, so you don’t miss anything!
  • Follow/like Beadsaholic on Instagram, Facebook and YouTube, would be greatly appreciated.

I don’t know if you have noticed, but with each giveaway I have offered some inspiration. Since the prize I chose this year is for you to receive OHM Bucks, that way you can buy what you want. I thought I would give you some ideas with each giveaway. I have featured all of the December collection in the last twelve days, plus a few others. So, today will be the last bead released this month and well, my favorite! I absolutely love grey and OHM Foggy is now my favorite of the OHM Grey glass beads. Though, I’m hoping they will create a few more grey beads and more pale pink, as I love these colors together!!

I created this bracelet with some of my favorite beads. From the start I have always loved floral beads and though OHM hasn’t made a lot in this catagory, the ones they have created are all stunning. There are six openworks orb flower beads, four of which you can see on this bracelet. Below you will see Lotus, Cherry Blossoms, Roses and Iris. They also make a Tulip and Sunflower (I need to order the sunflowers!). Also, seen here are the two oh so cute Woot Bear Chloe and Woot Bear Phinneas. The focal is my favorite heart from OHM, but mainly due to the sentimental value this bead holds for me. It’s called Love Grows and OHM gave these out to many who attended their events free, it was never for sale and as a receiver of this special gift we had to agree to never sale, but were free to gift it to someone else, if we liked. Each person is only allowed one bead and I received mine during the OHM10 event that was held in New Orleans. The glass used are OHM Unicorny, spark of Life, Pink-wish, Cairn, Foggy, Rose Jelly, and Fogberry.

I used a Niwa Bracelet and finished it off with this beautiful TPOA Labradorite Messenger Lock that is only available at Swiss Flower & Gift.

OHM Beads Foggy is a beautiful grey barrel glass encased in a Smokey translucent glass. It is the perfect addition to the OHM Beads Glass Collection and being a neutral tone will go with so many beads. Especially, pink and yellow! This bead runs an average size of 15 mm high x 8 mm wide. Foggy retails for $45 and is available on the OHM Beads Website and at Featured Retailers.

Wrist Shot!

I hope you all have enjoyed Beadmas this year and I wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and a Happy Holidays!

Don’t forget to comment below to enter the 12th Day of Beadmas Giveaway! Good Luck! Thank you all for participating and being a part of Beadsaholic! ❤

  2. I am grateful to OHM for creative design of self-expression. The only brand where the buyer himself can come up with a bead, where the opinion of the fans is always taken into account. OHM always cheerfully and amicably celebrate holidays and broadcast. Thank you for giving us so much positive and beauty 🤩

    • I am thankful to Ohm for making bead buying so much fun. They are the only brand I know that make their customers feel like a community, a World wide community. Not only can we buy the most beautiful & quirky beads but we can also make friends. They go the extra mile by hosting events like Beadmas which is just so enjoyable and gets my creative juices flowing .. not just by putting my own beads & bracelets together but by seeing everyone else’s stunning creations. Long live OHM xxx

  4. Hi Paula,
    I’d love to thank Ohmbeads for opening my eyes to a great community filled with like minded people who encourage & support one another. For the friendships I’ve made, for the fun I’ve had during Beadmas and the happiness I feel when I receive bead mail. And for this year, thanks for a great distraction, something good and positive to focus on.

  6. Hi Paula, thank you for hosting this Beadmass! This question actually made me realise a lot of the things that I am really grateful for from Ohm. They bring so much fun, humour and creativity to the bead community as well as a flurry of excitement with things like Beadmass. I really enjoyed BOTM and and I think my favourite design which made me me realise how much they think about people’s experiences was the the Love Cage design. Since then there have been so many designs that speak openly to people’s emotional or spiritual sides, and I really appreciate this. 👍🏽x

  7. I’m very glad I discovered this brand. It means so much more than owning their own silver or glass. Thanks to OHM beads I discovered new friends, new emotions, fun and daily entertainment! I really like the meanings related to each piece. Thanks OHM for everything!

  8. Well you made me cry instead of laugh. What a lovely post! I don’t even know where to begin. Ohm means so much to me and yet, I haven’t met any of them, I’ve only been with ohm a year and a half, and I still have a ten zillion long wish list – my collection is small compared to most. I am so grateful to Nichol for sharing this company with me, and therefore the community as well. From the very beginning I was so drawn to (as I always say) their badass bead designs. While other brands and beautiful and sweet, I love the edge offered with ohm. Don’t get me wrong, ohm beads are spectacularly gorgeous and so full of detail and seeing behind the scene glimpses through the “lives” gives us a peek at the tremendous amount of love and care that goes into each bead. The detail is phenomenal and the wonderful meaning connected with each design is so special. I truly love ALL the beads I have and I purchase with that sentimentality in mind. How can I choose the MOST special?? I think only time will tell as each one, each time is the best one! I adore Big Fat Killer Bee because I just think it’s the most spectacular design and the craftsmanship is extraordinary. To incorporate the glass element must be very difficult!! Kickin’ Peaches is so dear to my heart because Nichol designed it and that notion of kicking some ass connects her to me!! Don’t Give Up is another mantra in my life and I certainly persist! Emily did such a great job with this other special bead and I know it resonates with so many!! I also am devoted to every bead I have from ohm in Australia (Gouldian, GBR, Coober Pedy, Swaggie, etc.) and Karla is just a fantastic soul!! I can go on an on, beautiful spirited people (Kit, Mike, Jenya,Ken, Game) who are creative, kind, generous and real!!! (I love and appreciate that!), super company, so chill, so giving, so OHMAZING! I am thrilled to be an OHMbassador this year and hope for a long relationship with Ohm! My dream after this crap is over is to meet them all in person. I tend to make things happen so it’s just a matter of time! Thanks for hosting Paula and I’m sorry this is so long! You’ve been a doll! Angie @dailycharmaddict

  9. I am grateful to Ohm for the fun festivals Beadmas and Gnome, OhmInApril and OhmInAugust. For free giveaways and winning great prizes! For such unsurpassed craftsmanship in creating and detailing beads! For the implementation of my strange idea, which resulted in the birth of an amazing bead Cat Fish! And also an interesting legend about the appearance of the Cat Fish . Thank you very much, OHM! I love you and I know that it is mutual! Ohmmm!

And I thank OHM for the fact that all of us living in different countries, but can feel like a part of something significant. We are all together thanks to OHM. And that’s great!

      I am grateful to OHM for countless reasons, if I list them it would not end today, but first of all for the team, we can feel the magnificent energy that sustains this great community, this is not just restricted to beads, it is much more than that, it is love, affection, fraternity.
      I am very grateful to have been invited to be Ohmbassador, the feeling is indescribable, an honor! It makes me want to always give my best, be it in the photos, in the affection with all Ohmily.
      Thanks to OHM Beads ( special kiss for Karla), to all the Ohmbassadors colleagues, who welcomed me, and to all of Ohmily. Happy 2021!

    I love the “Don’t Give Up” bead for the broad meaning of this theme that touches everyone at some point and particularly this year. I love also many glass beads from Ohm Australia, always very special magnificent colors and always a theme attached to it.
    Thank you to all and to the new friends I can virtually meet and who bring me lot of happiness.

  28. I got into ohm after getting my first bead by winning it last year from Emily. So the business aspect of beadmas works lol. But I stayed because of the way they interact with their customers. I think that’s awesome! For me, no one in my real life understands my love of charms/beads, playing with beads, and dreaming up designs etc. It’s nice to see I’m not alone. Ohm has been very generous in their rewards program and giveaways. I don’t get beads for free like I see so many influencers getting so I have a small collection. The giveaways give me a chance to get a special charm that I otherwise wouldn’t be able to. So thanks from us non rich, non influencer customers who still love beadmail too once in a while!

My collection is small but growing ! My wish list seems to be getting bigger too! I love how Ohmbeads engages with their customers & makes us feel like a part of a family/community. I won my first ever charm during Ohm in April event: Who are you! I love all the pieces I have collected since then & am waiting to receive some amazing pieces. I love how unique; detailed & obvious love that goes into their designs. I love watching ohm live posts on IG. Ohmbeads is innovative; unique in their designs & marketing strategies & makes us all feel like family.

    I am thankful to Ohm for all bunnies series, I love them a lot. They’re unique and cool in their own designs : starting with bunny reaper, it’s always my favorite and last October there is Medieval Bunny which is such a cute bead.
    I am also thankful for Ohm studios that allow us to create our one of a kind bead by ourselves. I have created 3 beads and I love them so much.
    Last, I am thankful for Ohm for Beadmas activities every Christmas. Wishing you, Paula and all Ohmies Merry Christmas!

Though I’m still very new to Ohm, I remain utterly gobsmacked at their immense generosity and collective, earnest efforts to engage with collectors and foster a strong sense of community. The bead I love in particular is Orchid Rain — it happens to be inspired by a landmark in my country, and is also the first Ohm bead I bought, in pairs! Stoked to be a part of this wonderful Ohmily 🙂
