Ohm Beads Custohms Preview and Confirmation for the Great Lakes Boutique Bead Bash on the Lake

This Ohm Beads blog brings a preview of the new Ohm Beads Custohms and confirms a large number for the Great Lakes Boutique Bead Bash on the Lake.

Over the past few weeks you’ve probably seen mention of the new Ohm Beads CustOhms. CustOhms are groups of limited glass offered to retailers for custom order. The designs seem set to change every few months so they are limited editions. The retail price varies depending on the design and there are a certain number of designs in each batch.

Today I’m sharing a preview of the first two batches and can also confirm there will be a huge number available for the Great Lakes Boutique Bead Bash on the Lake.

Ohm Beads CustOhms

The first batch consists of eleven designs that felt really bright and apt for the summer season. As with all glass you can probably expect some variation though Ohm are most consistent with most styles compared with other brands. The beads in this first batch retail at $45 each. The names of batch one are as follows and they’re in the same order in the compilation image:-

  • Ohm Beads Lakes
  • Ohm Beads Fern Ridge
  • Ohm Beads Optimistic
  • Ohm Beads Bustling
  • Ohm Beads Prudent
  • Ohm Beads Seeded Salad
  • Ohm Beads Seeded Papaya
  • Ohm Beads Seeded Blue
  • Ohm Beads Seeded Dragon Fruit
  • Ohm Beads Seeded Rollinia
  • Ohm Beads Seeded Fig

Personal favourites from this batch are Lakes, Seeded Blue and Seeded Fig.

The second batch are scheduled to arrive with retailers in early quarter three and are both faceted and dichroic. The facets aren’t so easy to spot on the stock images but they are there.

Batch two beads retail at $70 each and the names are as follows:-

  • Ohm Beads Red Life
  • Ohm Beads Healing Orange
  • Ohm Beads Yellow Sunlight
  • Ohm Beads Green Nature
  • Ohm Beads Blue Harmony
  • Ohm Beads Purple Spirit

Ohm Beads CustOhms Summary

There will be a huge number of the new Ohm Beads CustOhms available at Great Lakes Boutique during our Halloween Bead Bash on the Lake. They will be both in store and online and following feedback from spring we will have plenty. I personally think Purple Spirit could look amazing with Eerie Nights, confirmed as the event bead for fall.

CustOhms have the potential to deliver another element of excitement to the brand I think. Of course there have always been Ohmniques and RandOhms but their availability has been more sporadic than I think these will prove. Ohm are already a brand with a lot of buzz surrounding them due to the Bead of the Month concept and glass is in such high demand.

Do stay tuned as we have another exciting Ohm Beads announcement tomorrow.

As always I love to hear from my readers. What are your thoughts on the new Ohm Beads CustOhms concept and are you loving the first two batches? Hit the comments and let me know!

  1. Martha Olavarrieta

    These are so pretty. Love them.

    • endangeredtrolls

      Very summery aren’t they! ๐Ÿ˜€ Except Lakes. I think that will just become a classic ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Donna

    That explains a lot.

    Are these like Trollbeads uniques then?

    • endangeredtrolls

      Mmmm no not really but I get why comparisons could be drawn. For one thing there’s no kits involved ๐Ÿ˜‰

      I’d liken them more to some kind of limited seasonal glass release. Though I’m not saying they’re going to change each season :p But Ohm will offer batches to retailers and the retailers can then order as they like. I’d guess some will save them predominantly for events.

  3. Sharon

    Purple Spirit and Red Life from the second batch for me! I can’t see the facets ๐Ÿ™

    • endangeredtrolls

      Yeah I know, but they are there. It’s just hard to capture on camera. If you look carefully at Purple Spirit you can just make them out. I think they’re quite large facets.

      Purple Spirit is such a lovely colour I think.

  4. Mary

    Aren’t these just part of the August release?

    • endangeredtrolls

      No no. The main August release is the Shitty Ohm collection which does have two of it’s own glass (Leafy and Five Ideas.)

      These aren’t general release ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Elizabeth

    I really love the glass. The lake is my favorite. Love the creamy base. I do hope there are plenty to go around! Bead bash seems to keep getting better and better! Can’t wait to find out what surprise you have for us tomorrow

    • endangeredtrolls

      I promise there will be *plenty* of CustOhms for the event. Actually while we’re not going to put a number on it, let’s say there will be *thousands* of CustOhms for fall ๐Ÿ˜‰

      • Marisa

        Excellent! That will make lots of people very happy. The faceted CustOhms are lovely… ๐Ÿ˜Š

        • endangeredtrolls

          We’re trying ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • endangeredtrolls

      Aw Liz <3 Do I need to put one of my teasers that you love so so much on Facebook? ๐Ÿ˜‰

      • Elizabeth

        Oh yes please!

  6. Jen

    Love the blue blotchy one though it makes me think of winter not summer. These will be online for Bead Bash? Will there be a special spend $500 get promo?

    • endangeredtrolls

      Yes they’ll be online ๐Ÿ˜€ You’ll have to wait and see ๐Ÿ˜‰

  7. Paula

    Love all the Custohms from batch #2 !

    • endangeredtrolls

      You have to wait a little bit longer for those. They’re due early quarter 3 ๐Ÿ˜€

  8. Angela

    Wow hoping these are prettier. and more interesting IRL. Seems like most people like these I may be alone but passing more beads for everyone else.
    Way past wanting to collect multiple beads in each color besides donโ€™t those in the first remind you of the world great Rivers collection

    • endangeredtrolls

      There are some that are slightly reminiscent of older designs and others that are totally new. That could be deliberate as I see a lot of collectors hunting down those old glass beads. I’ve yet to see them in the flesh (so to speak) so can’t comment on that ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. Pippa

    These look FUN! Thank you, Ohm ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m happy that there will be so much Ohm glass at Bead Bash and looking forward to seeing all of these new designs. Like everyone it seems, I definitely want to get Lakes – love the colors and organic design plus it’s opaque!! (It’s also perfect for GLB even if not design for the store it does make me think of it and the Great Lakes.) Seeded Fig also caught my immediate attention – I’m wondering how it would look with Unicorned. Also very interested in Fern Ridge and Seeded Papaya. From the 2nd batch, three really catch caught my eye, Red Life appears to be a very nice shade of red, Yellow Sunlight is so bright and happy, and Purple Spirit does look like it will go very well with the event’s Halloween theme. For the 2nd group I’m very curious about the dichroic – it’s generally not my thing but as little flakes of sparkle I’m hoping it doesn’t put me off. I can make out the facets – I think it’s easiest to see on Yellow Sunlight.

    Will be looking for the announcement when I get up ๐Ÿ™‚

    • endangeredtrolls

      I think Lakes is going to prove a favourite with everyone at least that seems to be the way this is going.

      I’d quite like to see it with Seeded Blue. They look like they could be a good match. I never got Unicorny but I think you’re right about that with Seeded Fig.

      In regards to batch two.. I wonder how much they’ll vary in terms of the amount of sparkle. From the stock images it looks as though that could vary and in which case you might be able to find a non-sparkly version or two ๐Ÿ˜€
