Ohm Beads Inner Self Variation Details

This Ohm Beads blog brings a small update to the variations of the upcoming Ohm Beads Inner Self

A short time ago Ohm Beads put out a small statement regarding the variations for their upcoming Bead of the Month, Inner Self.

Pre-orders started for the Ohm Beads Inner Self yesterday and despite concerns over blind bags and a quite high purchase price, we sold out at Great Lakes Boutique overnight. We have managed to get a small number more and those are now on the website at the link below.

Part of the appeal of this bead is the variation on that centre glass but for the original preview there was no mention of how many different beads there were. The brand provided a stock image showing six different coloured glass.

Ohm have now confirmed there over two hundred unique glass designs spread across the five hundred and fifty five Inner Self. For those of you who have wanted multiples, I don’t think yo need to worry about getting identical beads.

Happy shopping!

    That’s good to know. I wasn’t too keen on the blue color shown, but probably won’t be getting it if there are so many colors.

      Pretty unlikely!

    Some of the beads shown above hardly show any glass. Is this the case?

    • endangeredtrolls

      No they’ve turned them around.. You can see the stock images in the preview article.

    I think itโ€™s a beautiful bead.

    Lol… This is crazy! Not sure if I love or donโ€™t like this idea… I have pre-ordered, time will tell. Going on blind faith that Ohm usually pulls this sort of thing off well!

      It’s funny. Despite the objections – which I sympathise with. Despite the higher price point – which I also sympathise with – this has sold very fast.

      I like the design. I think it’s a great idea. Actually, I don’t wildly object to the blind bag on this one either.

      There’s also another angle to this entirely – one that isn’t a community problem at all. If Ohm wanted to use so many different glass for this bead and had then shipped them in normal packages to retailers. Retailers would really have been obliged to photograph those beads. At that point it’s pushing the responsibility onto a retailer to either say “no, I’m really sorry we don’t have time, you’ll receive a random bead” OR take the images.

      Not all stores have the time, resources or even the technical know how to get those images onto a website for people to choose. The alternative then would have been for Ohm to make the glass identical or just a few variations… Does that also go against this concept of “the inner self”?

      Just a different perspective ๐Ÿ™‚

    Just received my two Inner Self beads. Both are very nice. I somewhat prefer one over the other but really couldn’t be happier. I normally hate blind bags and do not purchase them, however with this edition having so many color variations I feel the blind bag works very well. I was so excited to open the little boxes and reveal each individual inner self! One is wonderful iridescent blues; the other is small splashes of various shades of purples on a lighter lilac-ish base. The bead is expensive but I do not regret my purchase. Ohm came through with this one.
