The Art Oblivion | Roar

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

In today’s blog post, I will be sharing a closer look at The Art Oblivion‘s upcoming release of their first solo glass bead: Roar. This glass bead will be releasing on July 10th, 2020 and is available for pre-order currently. There are only 100 of these beads available.

The Art Oblivion‘s Roar is a beautiful and inspirational bead. It features beautiful silver and different shades of blue that catch the light. I also love the touch of teal blue. It reminds me of The Art Oblivion‘s logo. Roar also has a dainty sparkle to it…a little touch of magic! Also, keeping with the “roar” theme, it has cool tiger-like stripe detailing on it.

I have created a YouTube video to showcase the bead in natural light with movement. You can watch the video HERE or down below:

When designing this bead, The Art Oblivion was inspired by this quote:

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

Here is what The Art Oblivion has to say about inspiration and concept behind this bead:

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.

The Art Oblivion

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!

Pairing Roar with The Art Oblivion‘s
In Awe and In Search silver beads:

I am looking forward to styling with Roar! It is so beautiful and a glass bead that I think will compliment many beads in my collection. I think it would make a beautiful centrepiece to a bracelet design, but it would also look beautiful framing a favourite silver bead.

Shown below, I paired TAO Roar in-between In Search (left) and In Awe (right).

I would love to know your thoughts on this beautiful glass bead from The Art Oblivion. How would you style it?

I love the meaning behind this bead. Using our voice to stand up for others, who we are, what we believe in, etc. is so important. Over the past few years, I have had to use my ROAR to stand up for myself and my health…something I had a hard time doing in the past! This bead represents that journey for me and will be a reminder to continue doing so!

What do you think of this bead? What does it represent for you?

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.

The Muranos:

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

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!

It is only available in small core. It is currently on sale for 50% off!
There are 21 beads left in stock, at the time of me posting this blog.

Apricot Flowers

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

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

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.

It is only available in small core. It is currently on sale for 50% off!
There are 16 beads left in stock, at the time of me posting this blog.

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!
