Happy Valentine’s Day featuring OHM Beads!

Today Beadsaholic brings a review of OHM Beads Valentine’s inspired February 2023 Collection.

Happy Valentine’s Day! Today is a day for self love and self care. We must love ourselves in order to love others. It’s important to take time for ourselves and reflect and manifest the life we deserve. So, this Valentine’s Day take a little time for you, treat yourself to a gift of love.

Today we are taking a look at five new beads from OHM Beads inspired by this day of love.

Our first bead is OHM Beads Celebrate Life, an OHMistry Project designed by Rita Cincinnato, “acharmeddreamer” on Instagram. This beautiful sterling silver bead is a filigree butterfly design with a heart shape Amethyst adorn in the middle. I love this open design which is perfect on a bangle, bracelet or necklace. This bead is limited-edition and only 111 pieces were made and it comes in special packaging designed by the artist. This is a nice size design which is why it’s perfect for wearing on a leather or silver necklace. Celebrate life retails for $120 / €126.


The butterfly has long been a powerful symbol of new life, hope, sacrifice and transformation. We all experience different forms of death in our lives: loved ones passing, broken friendships, deep suffering, loneliness, lost jobs, poor health (and so much more). But through loss and devastation, there is always the promise of hope. Because it is only through death that new life, hope and even healing, can come.

Much time and sacrifice is endured before a caterpillar transforms into a beautiful butterfly. The wings of CELEBRATE LIFE represent an in-flight action, symbolizing transformation and a call to action; the latter being important & necessary for new life. It doesn’t just happen; we make it happen with a lot of work and sacrifice.

Celebrating life is intentional and takes hard work; it embodies light and hope. The butterfly is life. And like a butterfly, life is beautiful and precious. It’s so important to live in the moment and to celebrate life every day. The slightly darker backside of this design and the bright shiny silver front side, connote darkness to light, in that dying is always necessary for new life. Therefore, acceptance and action define the ascent from darkness to light.

The 3 stars engraved on the back of this butterfly’s wing are meant to serve as your own personal reminders of how you will celebrate life.

Embedded in the wings’ open work design, we find the OHM Symbol. It is a constant affirmation of the OHMily we share in. There is also a heart shape in the wings – a reminder that we can transform the world with love.

The amethyst heart as the centre, emphasizes our transformative love and adds an element of natural stone that represents healing and peace. It’s also purple and, not surprisingly, Rita’s favorite color! The design of this butterfly bead is intentionally whimsical and fairytale-like to help bring a little magic to our lives. Even through difficult times, and the many sacrifices, may there always be hope in the promise of new life ahead.

As you find your own meaning for CELEBRATE LIFE, I wish that this bead can always serve as that spark of hope and as a reminder to celebrate, even the little things, every day. May we always “seize” every moment. Life is short, let’s celebrate it!

OHM Beads VDay is an adorable dangle with a heart shape bail with three charms a candy box with bow, a rose and lips blowing a kiss dangling from the bail. This is sterling silver and will fit all major carriers. VDay retails for $65 / €68.25.

Don’t forget to seal the day with true love’s kiss. This pile of V DAY goodies sums it all up. Represent traditions and all we do, cliche or not, to keep our relationships intact and running as smoothly as possible. Keep it up!” ~OHM Beads

OHM Beads More Than Love is such a sweet glass barrel design with a cream opaque base and soft pink hearts that remind of of the conversation candy hearts that come out each Valentine’s Day. More than Love retails for $55 / €57.75.


“The most important things are the hardest to say because words diminish them.” – Stephen King. How to say I love you when you feel more than love? What words shall we use to explain the feeling of deep devotion and life long dedication? What happens when commitment and respect become the driving force for the relationship? Don’t just use words. Take action and make decisions, adore and treasure, trust and value, express your love with beads.” ~ OHM Beads

OHM Beads Heather Zinnia is my absolute favorite and I think I need one more to wear flanking my butterfly! Purple is my favorite color and I’m a crazy plant lady, so they had me at purple flower! I adore the petal design this bead has which makes it perfect and beautiful in any design. Heather Zinnia retails for $70 / €73.50.


Round and round it goes where it stops nobody knows. Is something going round in your head you can’t stop thinking about it? It may be a sign to pay closer attention to your thoughts. Let the big idea rattling around inside out for a change. Fill the world around you with your colorful ideas. Blossom and open yourself from the deepness within. “ ~ OHM Beads

And the last bead is the OHM Beads Hot Stones! I’m loving the color combination in this bead with it’s grey base, white and lilac stones thrown about. The abstract design makes this bead easy to mix and match. Hot Stones retails for $55 / €57.75.


When the point of focus is pure, your ego drifts away. When the bones align correctly, relaxation happens and tension disappears. When the heat is more than skin deep, you surrender and give in. HOT STONE is a hint from nature, it is one of the open doors that invite you to transition to oneness.” ~ OHM Beads

Now for a little inspiration. In this first composition I mixed OHM with some Trollbeads.
