Ohm Beads Community Design Project 7 – Desk Globe or All Around the World

This Ohm Beads blog offers a preview of the choices for the Ohm Beads community design project 7 – it’s time to vote!

The Ohm Beads community design project concept is similar to the Trollbeads people’s bead award. Where the people’s bead award relies on submissions entirely created by the community, the community design project is a collaboration between fans and designers. The theme for the seventh community design project is travelling abroad.

Voting is now open for the Ohm Beads community design project 7 and sees desk globe and all around the world go head to head.

Ohm Beads Desk Globe

Desk globe is a heavily textured design detailing the individual continents. To offer an element of realism, the design concept included a movable stand which holds the actual globe. Concerns were expressed by the community that this inclusion could make the bead a little unwieldy in size and with the potential to snag on clothing. The designers believe this shouldn’t be an issue but they’re particularly keen to hear feedback regarding this feature. It’s worth noting that the initial wax concept has been created to allow the movable stand to become fixed in the silver casting process.

Ohm Beads Around the World

The Ohm Beads around the world also features a globe but with a plane, train and automobile travelling the surface. This is an updated version as the first draft detailed three planes instead. Rest assured the edges of the plane will be filed to ensure they aren’t in anyway sharp.

Ohm Beads Community Design Project 7

It’s really important that if you have any thoughts on these beads, you comment and make your voice heard. Ohm Beads are incredibly interested in community opinion so I feel it’s important we thank them for their interest by taking the opportunity to offer our feedback.

In addition to any comments you may wish to express here, below is the link to the official voting (no social media required, fear not!)

I’d also love to hear the opinions of my readers. Personally Around the World is my favourite and I’d love to see this bead make production. Which is your favourite? Hit the comments and let me know!

    Definitely, all the way I want Around the World! 🙂 This is the cutest charm and I cannot wait to see the finish look. The raised airplane puts the perfect touch on the charm to make it look so much more unique. But I still like the desk globe! It’s just kinda boring up against the Around the World charm, IMO.

    I vote they should make both!! 😉

      Hahaha 🙂

      I don’t think they’re going to make both but be sure you register your vote on the survey 🙂 I’m sure there must be a comment section where you can tell them that 😉
