Ohm Beads CustOhms Live Image Comparisons

This Ohm Beads blog shares live image comparisons of the first batch of Ohm Beads CustOhms and alerts readers to live image shopping later today.

Last weekend I shared a preview of the new Ohm Beads CustOhms concept. Essentially these are batches of glass available to retailers for a limited period of time and the designs will change sporadically. To date images of the first and second batches have been made available, with the second batch due to ship to retailers in September. The first round of designs are priced at $45. The second set are $70 as they’re both faceted and dichroic.

Today I’m sharing image comparisons of some of the glass plus bringing details of the live image shopping that will be offered later today at Great Lakes Boutique.

We didn’t actually receive all of the new glass designs so these images are missing Lakes and Fern Ridge. Apologies for that.

The new Seeded designs are all the same idea but with differing colours and feel quite summery. My favourite of these designs is the Ohm Beads Seeded Blue and the beads do vary though they’re all so lovely.

Seeded Fig proved popular amongst my readers too and again it’s a lovely soft pastel shade for the last of the summer season.

I was surprised by how much I like the Ohm Beads Seeded Papaya. Orange isn’t a great colour for me but I truly think this bead could work for Halloween which brings a whole new level of appeal.

I was also pleasantly surprised by Seeded Salad as I usually don’t like green. These are really striking in person and would look beautiful on nature and forest designs.

The final bead is the Ohm Beads Seeded Rollinia, a bright sunshine yellow. These could look spectacular heading into autumn as yellow actually isn’t a huge represented colour.

The remaining designs are then Optimistic, Bustling and Prudent and these have been likened somewhat to the old Rivers of Life collection.

Ohm Beads CustOhms Summary

All of these beads will be live at Great Lakes Boutique at midnight EDT. This will coincide with the start of the Ohm Beads Bad Dreams Promotion. Please do note that there is no buy five get one free on Custohms or for any orders towards the Bad Dreams promotion.

To reiterate for Bad Dreams, spends of $250 or more qualify for the free Bad Dreams charm but these orders must include a Forbidden Fruit or Spring Refractions. You can of course shop CustOhms away from the promotion itself.

I’m impressed with the CustOhms and I’ll be sharing my own live images of the beads over the course of the weekend when I’ll have chance to actually try them in some combinations. The beads do vary as you’d expect with glass and it’s clearly from some of the designs here that they couldn’t make them identical. That said Ohm have done a good job of keeping the sizes really consistent which is great news for collectors.

As always I love to hear from my readers. What are your thoughts on the first batch of Ohm Beads CustOhms? Hit the comments and let me know!

    I really like these beads! So you won’t have fern or lakes for sale yet, or just not through live images?

      We won’t have either as we didn’t receive any. Perhaps in future batches but it seems there’s no guarantee.

    I’m kind of scared to try to get these as I didn’t have a good experience during the bead bash shopping online. But I do think they are very lovely.

      This is entirely unrelated to Bead Bash πŸ™‚ There will be thousands of CustOhms for that event πŸ™‚ We just wanted to give people a chance to shop our first batch with the promotion πŸ™‚

    You snubbing he seeded red ones?
    Thanks for the photos. The pink ones are better looking than live than I expected.
    One question, if we don’t want the bad dream feelings bead, can we just order a couple of the CustOhms (not using the buy 5 code)?

      Yeps as per the article, you can buy them away from the promotion πŸ™‚
