    OHM Beads | Alice in Wonderland Collection | Youtube Video is up!

    A new video is up on my Youtube channel. If you remember my last blog post, this is the video about the OHM Beads Alice in Wonderland collection. I also share some scenes from when Nichol (MyPandoraCharmedLife) and I went to the Ivy Tea Room. They were having an Alice in Wonderland Mad Tea Party and this was one of the reasons I came to visit Nichol, at the end of February/early March (I also just LOVE her and missed her terribly, haha)! #beadsandtea was so much fun!

    You can watch the video, HERE. Or you can watch it down below:

    Odette – Inspired by, The Swan Princess

    Odette Ohm Beads exclusive
    Illustrated and Designed by British designer, Rebecca Cresswell.
    Release Date: November 8, 2019 at 6:00 PM GMT
    You can check your official release time HERE.

    This is hands down, the top bead on my Wishlist from the November 2019 release. And I absolutely LOVE the packaging!!!

    Here is what Ohm Beads has to say about this special charm:

    This bead design is truly of magical proportions, entwining beauty and hidden meaning within her form. Inspired by the story ‘Swan Lake’ which is a timeless captivating love story about magical Swans.

    Odette is a beautiful Swan Princess who under the spell of a sorcerer, spends her days as a Swan swimming on a lake of tears and her nights in her beautiful human form.

    Wear a little piece of magic that holds a little slice of English charm designed to spread love, hope and remind you of calmness within today’s busy world.

    Look at those feather details!

    The next bead (or should I say, beadS…) is the Ohm Lemon collection featuring four glass beads.

    I am a huge lover of lemon flavoured desserts (which is something I share in common with my dear friend, Nichol) and I could not be more excited for this release. I just love thinking about adding pops of yellows to my outfits!!!! I will especially love wearing these glass beads in the spring and summer seasons…or when I am wishing for warmer days ahead!

    Here is what Ohm Beads has to say about this collection:

    Who doesn’t love the sharp, clean smell or zesty taste of lemon? It is sunshine in your mouth. We love lemon cookies and pies, lemon tea, lemon marmalade, lemon pepper fish, ice-cold lemonade, or a zippy lemon twist in our favorite cocktail. In celebration of all things wonderfully lemon, OHM proudly presents this flavorful new assortment of bright, lemony glass beads: each one adding brilliance to your bracelet and a hearty spoonful of another favorite dessert.

    In order from left to right:
    LEMON JELLY ROLL, LEMON COCONUT BLISS,
    LEMON DROP SORBET, LEMON MERINGUE TART
    OHM LEMON COLLECTION

    If I had to pick a favourite glass bead from the Lemon Collection, I would have to go with one of my favourite desserts, Lemon Meringue Tart:

    Lemon Meringue
    How tasty does that look?!

    Speaking of glass beads, the other glass beads collection that will be releasing is called, Out There. These beads are truly magical and I can see myself dressing them up or down!

    Here is what Ohm Beads has to say:

    Semiotics is the study of signs and symbols, as well as their interpretations. The ability to communicate an idea is nearly impossible. It is honestly magic that we do do it. When you are studied in stories, words, symbols, tropes, references, memes, gifs, emojis, etc., communication becomes possible. The sharing of knowledge fuels our species and allows us to reach for the stars.

    Out There, glass beads collection paired with Odette and Imagine

    There are three glass beads in the collection. They are:

    A SIRIUS WISH
    DEEP BLUE
    GALAXY

    The last glass bead that I am loving is through The Art Oblivion OHMster Exclusive (meaning you can only purchase the bead through, The Art Oblivion website). It is called, Imagine.

    How often do you think I catch myself day dreaming? All the time!!! So, I cannot think of a better glass bead choice for me! And I just love those puffy white clouds and that vibrant pop of blue!

    Here is what Ohm has to say:

    IMAGINE invites us to lay on our backs, look up at the sky, and allow the stories of the sky to unfold. Let your mind open to the STREAM of your own imagination.

    Alice laughed. “There’s no use trying,” she said: “one can’t believe impossible things.”


    “I daresay you haven’t had much practice,” said the Queen. “When I was your age, I always did it for half-an-hour a day. Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.”— Lewis Carroll

    Moving back into silver beads, my second last favourite is not an item for myself…but one I would love to purchase for quite a few of my friends who are nurses (and one female doctor).

    It is called, Listen to Love.

    Here is what Ohm has to say about it:

    Nurses are the backbone of any health organization. They do what needs to be done. They continually give and give no matter what while caring for those that need it most. They help, they heal, and they love.

    Listen to Love by Ohm Beads

    Now, last…BUT…certainly not least!!!! My last wish list item is the BOTM for November 2019, Oracle. It is absolutely amazing and…once again, Ohm Beads does the most spectacular, storytelling packaging!

    Oracle BOTM comes with a tea light holder.

    Here is what Ohm has to say about their BOTM:

    Each face spins. There is a cut-out in the spinner to view which number or symbol it lands on. One face features 12 roman numerals as it were a clock face, the other face has 12 randomized simple symbols. These symbols can be either interpreted on the fly, or pre-assigned meanings or ideas.

    The idea is that it can be used as an oracle to help guide you in your day and in your life. Similar to OHM TAROT CARDS or CHI CHI STICKS 2.0.

    Oracle, up close! I think it is so cool how it actually spins on the front and back!!!

    And that is it for my November 2019 wish list from Ohm Beads release!!! And if you haven’t already, make sure to watch Nichol’s/MyPandoraCharmedLife Preview video on the entire November release HERE. After you watch her video, please comment down below and tell me what items are going on your Ohmbeads Wishlist!!!

    Happy Preview Day! xx

    Inner Self | Ohm Beads BOTM

    No. 48/555 Inner Self OHM BOTM

    In May 2019, Ohm Beads released their limited edition, OHM BOTM (Bead of the Month). They called it, Inner Self. These beads are uniquely special…there are only 555 of them, all with different variations of colour and detail in the embedded glass detail held inside exquisitely detailed sterling silver. Upon ordering, you will have no idea which embedded glass detail you will receive…the anticipation and guessing makes the arrival of this charm extra special!

    The experience of opening this charm was truly incredible! I will be posting a youtube video of it, as well! Keep an eye out.

    Unboxing the Ohm Bead, Inner Self

    Each bead is serialized and engraved with an individual code and is sealed in a wooden keepsake box with golden lock and a mini, cotton black bag. The wooden box comes inside a velvet pouch, cleaning cloth and envelope. A mini certificate of authenticity with the number in the series is included. My bead is number 48/555. The charm retails for $140 CAD and let me tell you…it was worth every penny to me!

    No. 48/555

    The meaning behind this charm is quite a personal one. Although, I won’t dive into the whole story (I will one day soon, promise)…this charm represents an injury/health problem I have currently been battling the past 1.5 years. It hasn’t been easy, but I find the best thing is to stay positive, focus on the good and trust in God.

    The Inner Self bead I received is just perfect for me! It is primarily spotted green with white and gold speckled details. It reminds me of my love of the forest and outdoors. Whenever I feel overwhelmed or needing to “escape”…I want to run away into the forest! Whether it is just to read, run or hike, I feel most myself when I am surrounded by trees and forest creatures!

    Inner Self – Bead of the Month

    Ohm Beads’ meaning behind the charm is wonderful. Here is their inspiration behind it: One’s inner self is only partially exposed to the light of the sun. Sometimes it feels like we are showing ourselves fully but that is not true. So much remains hidden, and usually by choice. Our choice. When we prejudge the value of self before ever opening up to another soul we deprive ourselves of seeing ourselves as whole. Think of your whole private self. That self you become when you are alone, safe, comfortable, free of responsibilities and expectation. What are you like? Where are you? The WHY of existence is clear when you are here in the NOW. You are a fool with a magician’s power. You hold the keys to your life’s unlimited possibilities. Let your inner self open up to others, and you… you listen to your inner self.

    Below, are some detailed images I took! But I promise; a youtube video will be coming out, as well!

    The back of the charm reminds me of the moon or a planet!
    Georgina is quite curious about this bead!
    She’s not sure what all the fuss is about!
    Zooey was pretty impressed!
    Although she’s not too sure what to do with it. She was hoping it was edible.
    Green, White, Gold…tiny traces of blue!

    Angled View

    The detail of the face, split into two…so we can see what is hidden behind someone’s facial expressions. Who are they really? What are they thinking?

    Back View

    This charm was much bigger than I was expecting it to be! It is quite the statement piece and would make a great centre piece charm or even a pendant! It is nearly an inch wide. I will keep you posted on how I end up styling it!

    Can you see the specks of gold?

    I highly recommend this charm. It is absolutely exquisite and if it holds a special meaning for you…it is worth the investment! It ships from Thailand, but I found it didn’t take too long to arrive! Beautifully packaged and arrived safe and sound.

    Please let me know if you got the, Inner Self OHM BOTM or plan to! I would love to know what coloured embedded glass detail you get!
