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!
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!
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.
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!
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!
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 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.
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!

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
I hope you and your loved ones are staying safe, during this outbreak. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. I hope this blog post and video adds a smile into your day.

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.
…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.
…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.
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.
…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.
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.
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.
…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!

Happy OHM BEADS Preview Day!!! In this blog post, I will be sharing my personal wish list beads from the upcoming release of the Ohm Beads November 2019 Collection. The official release date (unless otherwise noted), is on November 1st, 2019.
All pictures featured in this blog are courtesy of Ohm Beads.
I am so thankful for the opportunity to be an Ohmbassador and share this exciting content with you all. I would not have these opportunities without each and every one of you, so thank you! And…thank you, Ohm!
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.
The next bead (or should I say, beadS…) is the Ohm Lemon collectionfeaturing 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.
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 MeringueTart:
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.
There are three glass beads in the collection. They are:
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.
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!
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.
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!!!
