Hello everyone! I hope this blog post finds you and your loved ones safe, healthy and well, during this time. It is summer time here in Canada and I have been enjoying as much time outdoors, as possible! This includes lots of my favourite summer activities, such as: hiking mountains, exploring outdoor gardens, having picnics and patio dining with Ella. I have also had too many delicious iced teas and iced matcha to count! What are your favourite summer activities?
In today’s blog post, I am sharing a look at Ogerbeads‘ newest Spring/Summer release: The Blossom Collection. This collection features 10 new Murano glass beads and 2 silver beads. This collection was delayed due to COVID-19, but I am so happy it will be officially launching today, Friday July 10th at 12:00 Amsterdam Time (6:00 AM EST).
So, if you are ready to see the beautiful new beads from Ogerbeads, make sure to grab a delicious cup of iced tea and let’s get started!
A special thank you to Ogerbeads for letting me use their official stock photos for this blog post.

The Blossom Collection features 6 vibrantly coloured floral glass beads and 4 pastel glass beads.
The Collection Overview:
A Closer Look:
The Pixiedust Fragment Beads:
I love these new pixie dust fragment beads! I love pastel and neutral colours, so I instantly gravitated towards these beads. They are feminine and remind me of the spring time. They look magical with that touch of golden sparkle.
They are also very elegant and I can see myself dressing them up for a romantic evening or spring/summer wedding.
The Blossom Beads:
The Blossom Beads offer a refreshing pop of colour and make me think of running in a field of flowers or my mother’s garden back home! I can picture myself wearing these with one of my favourite white blouses or dresses.
I love the swirling white details and lifted bubble accents. They really evoke that “feeling” a summer breeze.
The Silver Beads of Spring and Summer:
The Tree of Love
The Tree of Love looks beautiful. It has heart shaped leaves and tree roots, a lovely symbol of connection and family. It reads: “Tree of Love” along the sides of the bead. I am looking forward to seeing this bead in-person! Love takes root and grows in so many amazing ways, I love that this bead is a reflection of that!
The Bee Hive:
The Bee Hive bead is beautifully detailed! I love the floral and vine accents going over the bee hive. There are a few bees with their wings spread out, buzzing about their home…such a sweet detail! I am curious to see the size of this bead, in-person. I am also intrigued by the doorway, into the hive…is it oxidized or can you see inside the bead? I cannot wait to find out!
And that concludes a look at the new Ogerbeads collection releasing today! What do you think of this new collection? Do you have any favourites? Please let me know down below!

In today’s blog and video post, I am sharing an Ogerbeads* Unboxing of five glass beads that have long been on my wish list. Each one has beautiful colours and detail. I cannot wait to design with them! For today’s blog and video, I’ll just be showcasing them individually, but stay tuned for some styling in the near future!
So, if you are ready…make sure to grab a cup of tea and let’s get started!
* A special thank you to Ogerbeads for sending me these 5 beads to review.
In addition to this blog post, I also created a special Youtube video sharing my first impressions unboxing each bead. I also share video scenes of each bead in motion. You can watch the video HERE or down below:
Berry Mystic Leaves
Berry Mystic Leaves is a magical glass bead. It makes me think of the autumn season, walking in a magical woodland with leaves falling down. I love the leaf-like details on it and the colours are so beautiful.
It is available in universal core and small core. I have the small core.
The small-core version is currently on sale for 50% off!
There are only two left in stock, at the time of me posting this blog.
Danai reminds me of a forest. I love the colours of green, gold, topaz and browns. The aventurine sparkle is so magical! It is similar in style to Berry Mystic Leaves. I think this bead would make a beautiful centrepiece to a bracelet. I am excited to style with it!
Apricot Flowers is one of my favourite Ogerbeads! I had to order a second one! It has beautiful peach, orange and pink colouring and I love the beautiful flowers on the top! I cannot wait to style it with my other Apricot Flowers and my Fairytale Twisted Flowers beads.
It is sold out in small core and only available in universal core. There are 22 beads left in stock, at the time of me posting this blog.
Venetian Armadillo reminds me of pouring milk into a delicious cup of tea (or coffee). I love the colours of brown, cream and ivory. I also ordered a second one of these beads to pair with my other Venetian Armadillo.
It is available in universal core.
There are 22 left in stock, at the time of me posting this blog.
Blue Oasis features blue, cream, ivory and touches of green colours. It reminds me of the ocean, but it also has a lovely forest feeling to it, as well. I have long looked at this bead, but always hesitated ordering it because I wasn’t sure what it would look like in-person. I was blown away when I unboxed it! It is unique and I love the bubble detailing going around it. It feels so cool too.
Ogerbeads is still having their 50% off all small-core beads sale. Ogerbeads will only be making universal core beads moving forward. There are many beautiful bead options in the sale selection!
I often get asked what bracelets do the small core Ogerbeads fit on! I made a detailed YouTube video on that exact topic. You can watch it HERE or down below:
But for a quick reference point, here are my top bracelet recommendations:
- Pandora Open Bangle
- Pandora Sliding Bracelet
- Pandora O Pendant
- Any “threadless” Pandora Bracelet (like the Pandora Rose bangle)
- Trollbeads Foxtail Bracelet
- Trollbeads Bangle
- Moress Bangles
- Ogerbeads Bracelet
(they will be launching new bracelets in the future)
And that concludes today’s blog and video post! I would love to know which bead is your favourite and if you have ordered from Ogerbeads before!
