OHM Beads | OHM September Preview Day

Hello everyone! I hope this blog post finds you and your loved ones safe, healthy and well, during this time. 

#BlackLivesMatter | To learn more, click HERE.

In today’s blog, I am sharing a preview of the OHM Beads September 2020 Release. This is a smaller, but mighty release of 3 special beads! I am excited to share these new beads with you. So, make sure to grab a delicious cup of tea and let’s get started!

The release date is September 3rd, 2020.

The Beads:

OHMistry Project | Kickin’ Peaches

I am so excited that OHM Beads and Nichol Orozco of @MyPrettyCharmedLife are re-launching KICKIN’ PEACHES in September! This is a non-limited edition version of the original OHMistry Project design. I might be biased because Nichol is my best friend, but I LOVE this bead. I am delighted that more collectors will have the opportunity to add her into their collections. Kickin’ Peaches is AWESOME!

The inspiration behind Kickin’ Peaches:

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!

Nichol Orozco |@MyPrettyCharmedLife

Back in May, I created a special video about OHM Kickin’ Peaches. You can watch it here:

OHM STUDIO | Oak Wood-Ent

As many of you know, the OHM Wood-Ent is one of my favourite beads! He reminds me of myself and how I feel when I am in the great outdoors! You can imagine how excited I was when I saw the new OHM Studio Project: OHM OAK WOOD-ENT!

The OHM Oak Wood-Ent follows a similar design to the original Wood-Ent, but has the addition of beautiful oak leaf wings. He also reminds me of my OHM TOGETHER Wood-Ent with Butterfly wings. I cannot wait to see this bead in-person!

REGIONAL | OHM in EUROPE

The last bead in the September release is OHM UNICORN POOP. This is an OHM glass bead that features a rainbow colour theme with white stripes.

The name of this bead makes me laugh and reminds me of funny GIFs and cartoons I have seen with unicorns. It add a great pop of colour and cheer, to any bracelet.

And that concludes today’s preview! Stay tuned for a review video. Which beads are your favourites from this release?

I hope you all have a wonderful rest of your day! Stay safe.

My OHM Don’t Give Up Bead Launches TOMORROW!

Hello everyone! I hope this blog post finds you and your loved ones safe, healthy and well, during this time. <3 

#BlackLivesMatter | To learn more, click HERE.

Tomorrow, June 19th, 2020 my OHMistry Project bead OHM Don’t Give Up launches at 10:00 AM PT/1:00 PM EST. I am so excited! A huge thank you to OHM Beads and this amazing community for helping make this dream come true for me!!!

In this blog and video post, I am sharing a bracelet design using OHM Don’t Give Up. The bracelet theme is inspired by fairytales because I currently feel like I am in one, with this bead launch! If you would like to see my first bracelet design with OHM Don’t Give Up, make sure to grab a cup of tea and let’s get started!

Faith Over Fear | Don’t Give Up!

I had so much fun designing a fairytale themed bracelet with my bead. While this is not a permanent design, I am loving how OHM Don’t Give Up looks with the OHM Unicorny glass beads, and a few other special OHM Beads. It has a light-hearted, feminine feel to it.

I filmed a video to tell you the story and inspirations behind each charm and why I chose to put them on this bracelet design. If you would like to watch it, you can find it HERE or down below:

I will be posting the video later tonight. Please check back later! Unfortunately experiencing some technical difficulties with the file!

You are meant to succeed.

To shop for my bead, you can click HERE.

Please note, the bead will become available at 10:00 AM Pacific Time Zone or 1:00 PM Eastern Time Zone. There are only 111 made and each bead has my signature on it, near the bottom. Can you spot it, in my last photo?

To hear more about the meanings and inspirations behind OHM Don’t Give Up, feel free to watch the video I made HERE or down below:

DON’T GIVE UP, you tell yourself. You feel it in your heart and soul. You are meant to succeed.

It starts with those first few steps. But with all journeys, it is a struggle of faith and self-assurance. Fear finds its way to creep in. It twists your path, voices harsh judgment, creates doubt and pain. It tries to seize the victory that awaits you.

At your darkest moment, when all feels lost, this bead reminds you to keep going. Push upwards, onwards! Faith is being sure of what you hope for and certain of what you do not see.

Having faith will guide your journey, through the darkness. The clouds will open, the path will brighten and the further you go, the clearer your path becomes. You will find unexpected help. You will experience achievements, big and small. Before you know it, you will arrive at the end and the start of a new beginning.

You will be victorious. Every fear, doubt, and painful memory will be conquered.

OHM Preview Day | July 2020

Hello everyone! I hope this blog post finds you and your loved ones safe, healthy and well, during this time. <3 

#BlackLivesMatter | To learn more, click HERE.

In today’s blog post, I am sharing a preview of the OHM Beads July Release. This is a smaller launch with three beads releasing.

I will be using OHM Beads promotional photos today, as I have not received OHM Cairn or OHM Shark Bay yet to take additional photos and video. My local postal services have been quite slow, the past few months. I am so excited to see these two beads in-person to give a full review!

So, if you are ready…make sure to grab a cup of tea and let’s get started!

OHM Cairn | OHM Lab Project

Laboratory Assistant | Patricia McClure @the_mcctrish

I’ll put a stone on your stone.

– Gaelic Blessing of Friendship

The first bead I have to share with you is OHM Cairn. This is an OHM Lab Project with the Laboratory Assistant being the wonderful Patricia McClure AKA @the_mcctrish. This glass bead is inspired by the stacking of stones or rocks, also known as cairns in Gaelic Scotland.

OHM Cairn will add a subtle, carefully balanced hue of color to your bracelet, reminding you of the precious impermanence of each day, the gratitude you feel for guideposts along your journey, and the friendships you share that stack blessing upon blessing. “I’ll put a stone on your stone” and a pebble of good luck too!

– OHM BEADS X @the_mcctrish

This is a OHM glass bead and features peaceful stones stacked together. This stone detail goes all around the bead. From the photos I have seen, this bead looks calming and so unique. I love the neutral colours of greys and whites, two staple colours in my wardrobe. I am looking forward to styling this bead!

OHM Shark Bay | Exclusive

The next bead I have to share with you is OHM Shark Bay. This is a regional exclusive glass bead to OHM in Australia.

The bead is inspired by Shark Bay, located in the western point of Australia. Shark Bay is home to hundreds of species such as birds, retiles, fish…and sharks! The Whale Shark is known as the largest shark in the world and it gathers in Shark Bay during the ,months of April and May full moons.

Deep blue sea waves swirl into white foam as they spread across the sandy shore. The vibrant salty blue is flecked with shimmers that could be darting fish, bubbles from a whale, or a nearly transparent jellyfish. Is the sandy hue the seagrass floor? Or sea turtles nesting in the shoreline dunes? Your imagination can soar with the rising flocks of birds or leap with the dolphins or even cruise with graceful menace like a shark. Surely this is an OHM bead worthy of the name SHARK BAY.

– OHM BEADS

OHM Woot Bear Phinneas

Do you remember the April OHMistry Project Woot Bear? He was a limited edition bead that was extremely popular! There were only 111 made and this little bear sold out fast! Designed by Steve Ferrera with OHM Beads, the Woot Bear Phinneas will now be available for regular release on July 2nd, 2020. I am so excited for those who really wanted to add this little bear into their bead collection, but were unable to!

I first featured my Woot Bear bead in my May Preview YouTube video. You can watch it HERE or down below:

The Woot Bear design was born in Steve Ferrera’s Berkeley art studio in 2016 for an art show at Woot Bear Gallery in San Francisco. The original bear was a 5-inch tall solid cast resin figure painted with acrylic paints…

The design continues to evolve and find new iterations, this time finding a home in the jewelry and bead world with OHM Beads in Seattle, Washington.

– OHM BEADS X Steve Ferrera

I love Woot Bear Phinneas. He has adorable OHM signature swirls as his fur and he is holding a cute staff. He has the sweetest expression and I am so happy he will be available worldwide!

And that concludes this blog post! Which bead is your favourite?

This Release will be launching on July 2nd, 2020.

OHM Beads | June Preview Unboxing & First Impressions

I hope you and your loved ones are staying safe, during this outbreak. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

I am a bit late in posting this blog, but this past Tuesday I published a new YouTube video about the OHM Beads June Release. In this video, I share an unboxing and my first impressions. The beads I unbox include: OHM Wagyl (Australian exclusive), OHM Walk the Walk (Thailand exclusive) and OHM Time Machine (OHM Lab Project). I also share another look (and some brief styling) of my OHMistry bead, OHM Don’t Give Up. You can watch the video HERE or down below:

SO, make sure to grab a delicious cup of tea (I am enjoying some iced Peach Matcha from DAVIDsTEA*) and let’s get started!

* I am a DAVIDsTEA Affiliate

Official OHM Photos | June Release:

The June Release will be officially available on June 4th, 2020.

The Wagyl (AKA, Rainbow Serpent) looks like it curled around, over the wearer’s bracelet. So cool!

I love OHM Walk the Walk! So much detail from every single angle!

The OHM Time Machine is one of my favourites from June! It is amazing and one of my top choices!! If you could travel in the OHM Time Machine, where would you go and why?

Not shown in my unboxing, but there is also a OHM glass bead in the June release. It is called, OHM Lila Gold and is an exclusive to OHM in Europe:

And lastly…here is a little look at my bead, but I will be sharing a more detailed look at the official OHM stock photos, at a later date! I will also be including photos of the design process, including the wax model, etc. So excited to share these photos with you all!

My Bead Collab. with OHM:

What do you think of the June Release? What are your favourites?

As mentioned, my top pick would be OHM Time Machine. I love the all the details on it and it is such an imaginative bead! Every time you look at it, you may just go on an adventure. Also…how could my very own OHMistry bead not be in my top favourites? 😉 🙂

Have a wonderful rest of your day! Stay safe and talk to you all very soon! xo

The Story & Inspiration Behind my Bead Design with OHM Beads | Don’t Give Up

Happy Monday! I hope this blog posts finds you and your loved ones safe, healthy and doing well.

This past Saturday, I premiered a special video on Youtube. It is part two of my “Exciting Announcement” video. If you remember from my previous blog post, I shared that I will be OHM Beads June 2020 OHMistry Project. This means I got to design my own bead with OHM Beads! It is such a surreal, crazy dream come true.

In my new video, I share a detailed look at my bead, as well as the story and inspirations behind it. This is probably my most personal (and slightly vulnerable) video yet. You can watch it HERE or down below:

Thank you to this incredible community and to OHM Beads for making this dream come true. Biggest virtual hugs!

OHM Don’t Give Up

My OHMistry Project bead is called, DON’T GIVE UP. It is a silver oxidized bead and will be releasing on June 19th, 2020 at 10:00 AM Pacific time zone.
The limited-edition release of DON’T GIVE UP is part of Project OHMistry and is limited to 111 signed and serialized pieces. A certificate of authenticity is included inside a limited edition box (I actually got to illustrate the box art myself).

As mentioned in my video, this bead reflects a journey. It is a mountain that has a dark side and a light side to it. Here is the story behind the bead:

DON’T GIVE UP, you tell yourself. You feel it in your heart and soul. You are meant to succeed.

It starts with those first few steps. But with all journeys, it is a struggle of faith and self-assurance. Fear finds its way to creep in. It twists your path, voices harsh judgment, creates doubt and pain. It tries to seize the victory that awaits you.

At your darkest moment, when all feels lost, this bead reminds you to keep going. Push upwards, onwards! Faith is being sure of what you hope for and certain of what you do not see.

Having faith will guide your journey, through the darkness. The clouds will open, the path will brighten and the further you go, the clearer your path becomes. You will find unexpected help. You will experience achievements, big and small. Before you know it, you will arrive at the end and the start of a new beginning.

You will be victorious. Every fear, doubt, and painful memory will be conquered.

What is your “Don’t Give Up” journey?

Leading up to June 19th, I will continue to share the journey of designing this bead with OHM Beads! Stay tuned for official OHM Beads photos, the process of seeing my bead come to life (from wax to silver) and how I’ve been styling my bead.

Side note: Can you spot my artist signature, on this bead? I love that OHM Beads added this detail to the bead. You can also find it on the box art:

Anyway, that is it for today’s blog post! I hope you have a wonderful rest of your day and talk to you soon! THANK YOU SOOO MUCH AGAIN! xo

My Personal Favourites in the
OHM Beads April Release

Without a doubt, my favourite collection from the OHM Beads’ April 2020 release is the OHM Alice in Wonderland collection. I adore every single bead. BUT…since I’ve already shared dedicated Youtube videos and a blog post…I’ve decided to focus this blog post on my other top favourite beads from the April Release.

Here they are below:

OHM Touch of Maple

…the beauty of the maple tree itself, from its blossoms in early spring — offering nectar to bustling bees — to the whispered rustle of its cool and soothing summertime shade. Perhaps the maple tree shines best in autumn as its leaves explode into a fiery inferno of reds, yellows, and orange. The maple leaf is on the coat-of-arms of Canada, and on the Canadian flag. The maple is a symbol of strength and endurance, and has been chosen as the national tree of Canada. There is indeed a touch of maple in many things you love.

– OHM Beads

OHM Go Far

…how far will YOU go to achieve your dreams?
A wise teacher once said, “Set a clear intention about something you want; stay focused on your goal; be persistent; get back up when you fall, and love yourself through the whole journey.” In celebration of Earth Day and all the travels of our lovely planet, we offer this beautiful glass bead GO FAR. We believe you truly will.

– OHM Beads

OHM Haze Slim Glass

Through a deep haze we awaken to the light. There are some things to be said about transitions. What they are we don’t know. Ask around before being distracted by the shiny. Always remember, you will find deep knowing in the sage advice of others. They don’t have all the answers, though you may find them in the stillness between their words.

– OHM Beads

OHM Kugusa

…KUGUSA is the Swahili word for touch and OHM is proud to offer this new design gorgeously covered with gentle touches, both literal and emotional. This new glass bead not only evokes the leopard-like beauty of its Swahili name, but it will remind you of the joy and importance of daily touches both given and received. We need touching like we need air and water, and a nurturing touch need never be feared, for it leaves only lovely impressions of love and happiness on your skin, your heart, and your spirit.

– OHM Beads

OHM Luna 2.0

LUNA represents both the inner child and the inner mother, trust, faith, and unconditional love. This sphere has been revisited after the love of the LUNA BOTM, we have a newly carved moon with a myriad of craters. LUNA 2.0 has the same heartfelt meaning from OHM.

OHM Mama Aqua

MAMA AQUA is the life-giving water of our planet Earth, and she nourishes our crops and gathers the birds and beasts to drink at her rivers and streams. Mama is the Queen of the Sea, the goddess of rivers, the myth of the siren and mermaid. Mama has been worshiped as a purifier by many, and philosophers consider her the element of intuition and emotion. Mama Aqua is royalty and majesty. She wears a crown of precious coral reef, and her flowing waves of hair are filled with creatures of the sea. Mama is part of you too. Your body is 78% water and you cannot survive without her. She is the long cool drink of refreshment on a hot day or the cleansing depths of your favorite swimming spot. She is the salty smell of the sea and the rhythm of the tides. Mama is powerful; She is fragile. Water covers 71% of our planet’s surface; yet, despite her importance, she is often unappreciated.

– OHM Beads

OHM Inch On

…As we celebrate Earth Day with this series of beautiful glass beads, we are reminded too that Nature formed herself over millions of years one tiny drop at a time. When you are faced with a scary task or a big job to do, just touch this bead on your bracelet, breathe, and take that first little inch forward. You are on your way!
