Welcome to August and it’s happy birthday to Ohm Beads this month! Today sees the launch of their newest designs and it’s a pretty substantial collection in terms of it’s size. At the heart of the August release is the Shitty Ohm collection and whether you love or loathe it, it’s going to forever be a significant part of Ohm’s history. Who else would do it?

Ohm Beads Love Hurts 2.0

When you look back over Ohm’s history, there are some designs that are truly iconic. Argh and Luna are definite examples but so is Love Hurts. As the brand has grown in popularity, needless to say there has been demand for some of these older beads. Ohm have generally managed this by revisiting the idea, either in a larger version such as with Big Luna or a design inspired by the original, as with Baby Argh.

Love Hurts 2.0 is retailing at $95 and is perfect for both collectors who missed the original, or those who just want more.

Ohm Beads August 2018 Collections Summary

With this being the August collection, the next releases we have to look forward to are for quarter three; fall! We already know that the Ohm Beads Astronargh is the Bead of the Month for September 2018. Pre-orders for that began a few weeks ago. We originally sold out of our first stock at Great Lakes Boutique but we have just managed to add a small amount more to the website. Exclusive Bead Store in the UK also still have some. Despite this being a blind release, many retailers exhausted their stock incredibly fast. The bead has Argh in it’s name and I think that alone has many collectors excited.

Astronargh is set to launch on September the 1st which should mean we see a general preview of the rest of the September releases in week two or three of August.

As always I love to hear from my readers. What are your thoughts on the Ohm Beads August 2018 collection? Do you have a favourite design and if so, which is it? Hit the comments and let me know!

    The Office is a favotite for us. We had to get this one after a now infamous family prank on a pitch-black night at our cottage in the woods… and the belief that a bear was pushing/rubbing on the exterior of our occupied outhouse! Devilishly hilarious and a great memory!

      I think The Office has the most versatility out of that particular series so hopefully it will have wider appeal for some šŸ˜€

        Agreed, Iā€™m struggling with the remaining collection. Still, even with that struggle, I have to give Ohm credit for stretching the design boundaries again.

        • endangeredtrolls

          Yes exactly! None of us are ever going to like everything from a release. It would just be weird. That doesn’t mean you can’t look at something and still have a certain appreciation. Shitty Ohm isn’t for me but who else would do it? šŸ˜› That’s what makes Ohm, Ohm šŸ™‚

    Hi! Is the Love Hurts 2.0 limited edition?

    • endangeredtrolls

      No it’s not

    Safe month for me The Office except for the articulating door too much like the True Beads Event bead to energize me, the poop humor escapes me. The Leaf maybe if it had 2 or three, just not a fan of seeing the emptiness when the bead spins.
    Am a big Heart Collector and for me one Love Hurts is enough, Darlie have nothing that would go with her.

    However knowing how Techie Victoria is if I ever get Darlie it would be an ode to her but for me I think my carved Rose Amber is a better reminder and representation of her. Still I look forward to seeing how Darlie will be used.

      For what it’s worth there’ll be live images of Leafy on the blog in just a few more minutes and live image shopping on the GLB website tonight šŸ™‚ It does have only one leaf though šŸ™‚

      You know I love amber šŸ˜‰
