Ohm Beads CPR Preview

This Ohm Beads blog brings the details and a preview of the new Ohm Beads CPR collection with pre-order beginning immediately.

While today sees the release of the Ohm Beads November 2018 designs, including the rather magnificent Rebirth as the Bead of the Month design, pre-orders for the new Ohm Beads CPR collection begin.

What’s CPR? Essentially Ohm have created new versions of some very long retired and much loved beads. The designs are not identical and veteran collectors should be able to discern the difference. On the other hand they are close enough to satisfy those who missed out on these beads.

A total of ten designs have been resurrected and pre-orders begin immediately. Do please note that these are made to order so expect a 4 to 6 week wait for delivery. They’re also only being offered until February 2019. After that point they’re gone.

Ohm Beads CPR Ordering Details

It’s worth noting that participation in this collection is at the discretion of the retailers though I suspect most will offer these beads. Again do note the expected shipping date for these beads is in four to six weeks (and that puts us very much into Christmas mailing delays so keep that in mind when ordering.)

Ohm Beads CPR Summary

There is another plus side to the CPR launch. Even for the veteran collectors who have sought out these designs, they were threaded and therefore won’t fit the new chunky bracelet system. The new designs on the other hand will.

It will also be interesting to see if this is a concept Ohm continue in the future.

As always I love to hear from my readers. What are your thoughts on the Ohm Beads CPR concept? Do you relish the thought of getting your hands on long retired designs? Or do you prefer retired to stay that way? Hit the comments and let me know!

    I like that they are making the older designs for the new collectors.

      That’s great news! I’m so curious regarding the feedback on this release as it’s always been such a controversial issue. I like that Ohm have deliberately made it so you can tell the difference though. To me that’s a key element to the whole thing.

    I think it’s a fun idea, and I’ll definitely indulge. Even Rubber Duckie is my must-have, and some of the others are cute too. Though I was hoping the arcade ghost would be included. Maybe next time, hint hint? Glad they’ll be around for a few months so there’s no scramble to order immediately.

      I never had the first either and him and the burger are what appeal to me the most. Actually I think the burger is the most different from the original and I like that.

      I actually have no idea if it’s a concept they’ll continue. Maybe they’ll decide based on the feedback of the first round? I’d rather like an arcade ghost now you mention it 😛

      Retailers have to place their final orders by February 2019 so you have time to ponder 🙂
