Ohm Beads Indian Summer CustOhm Inspiration

This Ohm Beads blog brings a little inspiration for the Ohm Beads Indian Summer CustOhm, a perfect fall glass and a great alternative to the long retired Poisoned Apple.

Just before Bead Bash on the Lake we were all pleasantly surprised at Great Lakes Boutique when some new CustOhms arrived in store. We’d been expecting a restock of the batch one CustOhms, mostly known as the Seeded designs, (though there are others in there.) What arrived were new designs we hadn’t seen before and we were so excited to share those with the community during the event.

Among those designs was the Ohm Beads Indian Summer, aptly named with it’s dark, spicy colours. It reminded me instantly of the long retired Ohm Beads Poisoned Apple which has become quite coveted among collectors. Though not identical, it’s a good substitute for those of you who missed Poisoned Apple.

The Indian Summer glass is Ohm’s now iconic barrel shape (which I do far prefer to their original round beads.) It’s a mix of golds, reds and greens in a really foliage inspired bead.

Poisoned Apple had a hint of blue which is definitely missing from Indian Summer. There were also more air bubbles in the former. Nevertheless Indian Summer is a perfect complement or a decent replacement. In the images below Poisoned Apple is in the centre.

This bracelet is purely inspired by the fall season. In terms of the glass it features Indian Summer, Poisoned Apple, Mulled Cider, Bar Brawl, Strawberry and Broken Heart. The silvers are a mix of the overtly Halloween designs and a couple of beads that are just autumnal to me, such as the http://www.endangeredtrolls.com/ohm-beads-wood-ent-review/”target=”_blank”>Wood Ent (I’m so in love with this bead) and Sunflowers. Do remember that Ohm are retiring a huge percentage of their collection soon. The focal bead is the Ohm Beads Magic Frog, Bead of the Month for October and still available at Great Lakes right here.

Ohm Beads Indian Summer CustOhms Summary

Considering there was a real shortage of Ohm Beads glass as we entered 2018, the brand have very much turned this around as we approach the end of the year. We’ve had both limited edition and collection glass and though CustOhms are technically limited, they’re available in good quantities to retailers. All of this is great news as I was so saddened by the lack of glass choices in early 2018.

Indian Summer is a really good choice for fall or indeed Halloween. It’s colours should make it ideal for Thanksgiving bracelets too.

As always I love to hear from my readers. What are your thoughts on the Ohm Beads Indian Summer? Have you been enjoying the CustOhm concept? Hit the comments and let me know!
