Ohm Beads Chunky Bracelet & New Style Locks Preview

This Ohm Beads blog brings a complete preview of the new Ohm Beads Chunky Bracelet and the coordinating locks.

On November the 1st Ohm Beads will launch their new bracelet system. Those of you who follow them on social media will have found it difficult to mix these locks being teased for over a year now. Further to that the November retirement says goodbye to their staple snap clasp bracelet.

The new bracelets start at $150 for the 13cm and rise to $180 for the 20cm. All of the new locks debuting will retail at $65.

Ohm Beads Chunky Bracelet & New Style Locks

The new Ohm Beads Chunky Bracelet feels very far removed from the original Ohm Beads bracelets. They’re aptly named as they are chunky pieces of silver and indeed they come with the disclaimer that not all current beads will fit these bracelets. I have absolutely no idea what percentage that will be.

There are a total of four new locks making their debut so obviously this sees Ohm moving more towards the Trollbeads ethos of having every component interchangeable. The new locks are the Ohm Beads Octopus-y, Ohm Beads Dragon-y, Ohm Beads Chameleon-y and the Ohm Beads Ohm Who clasp. Each retail at $65.

Ohm Beads Chunky Bracelet & New Style Locks Summary

This a real change for Ohm! I saw the original version of these bracelets and I did really love the chunkier feel of the chain. The locks are exciting as they don’t look like clasps, rather a focal feature in their own right.

Nevertheless I’m really looking forward to hearing the opinions of my readers when it comes to these so hit the comments!

Comments
  1. Sorrel

    I like this new direction that Ohm are taking. The bracelet will look fab with just the lock. I am very tempted by the Chameleon lock.

    The Octopus looks amazing, but might be prone to catching on long sleeves, but will be great for a simple, but eye catching, summer bracelet.

    It is nice to see that the Dragon has not been made to look cute. I already have three dragon locks from Faerybeads, but maybe I can find room for another Dragon πŸ˜ƒ

    • endangeredtrolls

      There is ALWAYS room for more dragons πŸ˜‰

      • Sorrel

        😁 you are totally correct πŸ‰πŸ‰πŸ‰πŸ‰

    Oh dear I seriously love the new releases which is unfortunate after the fortune I spent at the GLB event plus other releases this month. I must have the Octopus and the Rebirth Bead and hopefully I can sell some things on EBay to afford some other things. Well done Ohm!

    • endangeredtrolls

      Don’t forget most of these are not limited editions! They’ll still be here after pay day, or the next pay day πŸ™‚ It’s only Rebirth you need to try and prioritise if you’re wanting it πŸ™‚

  3. Lola

    I like the locks. They look like Ohm took inspiration from Nazareth’s Hair of the Dog album cover. πŸ˜€

    • endangeredtrolls

      I just like how different they are. It can’t have been super easy to design away from “that” traditional lock aesthetic and these are definitely far removed. I also love they look more like design components than locks.

  4. Neve

    I really like the locks, but I don’t have enough ohm beads that would justify getting that bracelet based on not knowing if I’d be able to use all or at least most of the beads I have.

    • endangeredtrolls

      From what I understand any of the older beads that were threaded will not fit. Any without the threads should fit.

  5. Angel Soto

    I don’t think I could trust a lock that just hooks and not locks. If I lost beads I would cry.

    • endangeredtrolls

      Ohm have been testing these for ages. Hopefully there will be no issues πŸ™‚

  6. Natalie Stevens

    I have been semi to another bead brand for many years. This is just another example of why it is increasingly difficult for me to ignore OHM. I love these designs and concept. It will be a difficult choice between the dragon and the chameleon for me. Brilliant!

    • Natalie Stevens

      Typo in my comment πŸ™ above. Should have said semi loyal…………

      • endangeredtrolls

        I think people got it πŸ™‚

  7. Katie

    I love these. I did buy the dragon (I love dragons). But, now that I look at your photos, I also love the octopus. Frankly, I’d probably wear the bracelet with only the octopus, your photo looks that good. Hopefully, the dragon will strike me the same way.

    • endangeredtrolls

      I think they’re all pretty awesome frankly. All quite different – but awesome. I think collectors will have a lot of fun with these πŸ™‚

  8. KarenT

    I love the chunky chain & the dragon lock. is the size of the bracelet just the chain itself or with a lock on?

    • endangeredtrolls

      It’s the chain length. It’s only Trollbeads that include the locks πŸ™‚

  9. Martha olavarrieta

    OMG. FINALLY!!! I LOVE IT πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ

    • endangeredtrolls

      It’s felt a long time coming I agree πŸ˜‰

  10. Linda

    Beautiful, but pricey. Will Trollbeads fit?

    • endangeredtrolls

      No, Trollbeads have the smallest cores of nearly all brands πŸ™‚

  11. Pernille

    I love the dragon lock. However I think the bracelet is a little expensive. I wonder if a Trollbead bracelet can be adjusted to fit the lock.
    Do you know the measurement of the lock, in cm or mm?

    • endangeredtrolls

      I don’t I’m sorry.

    • endangeredtrolls

      I’ve since been told this will not work.

  12. Rosie

    I love this but I’m also not sure about having it not locking like trollbeads. Plus troll is one piece and you never have to worry about it breaking at the end. The chain is the actual measurement stated? Love the dragon!

    • endangeredtrolls

      Yes.. 17cms would literally be 17cms. Which when you think about it makes total sense but we’re all adjusted to something else πŸ˜‰

  13. Lisa G

    Unfortunately (since I love the octopus), I will have to skip these. Anything not locked immediately falls off my person and I lose it. 😑😑😑

    • endangeredtrolls

      The Ohm team have been testing these for ages so I’m hoping if there were any issues, they would have come to light by now.

  14. Judy

    So I am confused. How do we know what size to get. Do we have measurements for locks so we know the total length of the bracelet? And will other brand beads fit. I know troll won’t but what about red Bali frog?

    • endangeredtrolls

      It’s hard to say at this point as to what will fit. These are pre-release so people haven’t really had a chance to try.

      In regards to the size, Jenny at Ohm posted yesterday on social media that you should allow about 2.5 cms for the locks. So if your normal snap clasp size is 20 cms, take the 16 cms chunky chain and the lock will add another 2.5 cms

    • kit@OHm

      Hi Judy,

      To find your Chunky size, measure your wrist in centimeters and subtract 3. Up one size up if you want to wear with beads.

      I hope this helps.

  15. Noemi

    I like the dragon one, but it doesn’t look secure to me. I’d be interested to hear what everyone’s opinion is once they get them and start wearing them.

    • endangeredtrolls

      I’m sure there’ll be plenty of feedback after launch don’t worry πŸ™‚
