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!– The Art Oblivion
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.
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?
