Ohm Beads July 2018 Collections Launch

This Ohm Beads blog alerts readers to the launch of the Ohm Beads July 2018 collections including the Bead of the Month, Black Coffee.

Happy Ohm Beads release day! It’s a particularly exciting one too as there are two new glass beads debuting. Following such a drought this feels such a treat. Admittedly one of those designs is a limited edition Bead of the Month but it’s still available!

If you’ve missed the previews, everything you need to know is right here.

Ohm Beads Black Coffee

Continuing their tradition of caffeine infused Julys, the Ohm Beads Black Coffee is the Bead of the Month and limited to two thousand two hundred and twenty two (2222) pieces. It’s retailing at $45. It’s a very dark brown-black bead with no other distinguishing features, which perfectly represents black coffee. (Don’t confuse black coffee with espresso. It’s the latter that has crema, not the former.)

The bead is packaged in a traditional style hessian coffee sack and for this reason, please don’t expect live images from retailers. The bags are actually sealed and opening packaging in that way always creates some upset. Plus there’s not a lot of variation to be found in these beads anyway.

For those of you yet to order, we held some back at Great Lakes Boutique! You can find them via the link below.

Ohm Beads Celebrate

Finally the US retailers have their own exclusive glass by way of the Ohm Beads Celebrate. Celebrate has a black base, lots of copper glitter and brightly coloured (yes far brighter than they look in the stock image) firework details. It retails at $50 and isn’t limited edition but is exclusive to the USA.

Ohm Beads Bead Fairy

The silver bead debuting in July is the Ohm Beads Bead Fairy. This design received a huge amount of praise from collectors, both in regards to her actual theme and the curvier female form. She’s retailing at $90 and is not a limited edition

Ohm Beads July 2018 Summary

For those of you who like to plan ahead, previews of the August release which includes the Shitty Ohm collection should be around the middle of the month. The Ohm Beads Office as Bead of the Month for August ha already been unveiled and pre-orders have started.

I will be trying to rush out live images of Black Coffee later today. If you want to see Celebrate, be sure to follow me on social media (Endangered Trolls Facebook and Instagram and the Great Lakes Boutique Facebook and Instagram) later today as I don’t think I’ll have time to take studio shots this afternoon. Expect those on the blog tomorrow though.

Overall I love the two new glass beads. Admittedly despite the fact I’m a coffee drinker, Black Coffee makes me think more of fall than caffeine. If you want a styling tip try it on a gold bracelet or bangle for an instant go-to piece for next season. Celebrate is a bolder, brighter bead than the stock images suggest but I think that’s a good thing. It’s very striking in person.

As always I love to hear from my readers. What are your thoughts on the Ohm Beads July 2018 collections? What have you pre-ordered? Hit the comments and let me know!

    I love the Celebrate barrel glass, very cool, can’t wait to see how it looks in real life!
    I already pre-ordered Black Coffee – but for me personally it’s going to represent Guinness Stout – to go with my Bar Brawl and Hipster hops!

      Guinness is my favorite!

    I just saw the Celebrate bead on Instagram; someone posted a batch of pics and it looks AMAZING. The canes of Murano millefiore look like fireworks against the dark sparkly background. I’m hoping to get a few from “live” images…. Keep us posted so we can jump on them if they get posted as live selections! It’s great to see detail like this in a glass bead- such a wonderful idea!

    Is there much variation in Celebrate? I put off preordering hoping to see live images but none so far. Looking forward to black coffee. I never drink the stuff but I will pretend it is really strong tea although I confess the Guinness idea is great. Now we need a beer mug. I guess I can use the coffee mug for that too! Bead fairy is in my future but probably not until fall bead bash!

      No there actually isn’t. There’s the small amount of difference you expect in all glass but Ohm are generally very good at consistency there. The glass is brighter than the stock images suggest but so much of that is about lighting. You shine a studio light on any bead and it glows. It’s the “firework” details that are a brighter colour than I had expected.

      But in terms of variation.. I’d personally say relatively little.

        Cool then I will need to place an order tonight!

    Can’t wait to get my black coffee, as I have all the previous coffee themed BOTMs. I pre-ordered Celebrate and instantly thought of pairing it with the “Down Under” city bead. As a native Sydney-sider, new year to me is always fireworks on Sydney Harbour, and this represents it perfectly. Down Under just got bumped to the top of my priority list. Can’t wait for beadmail!!!
