Ohm Beads Leafy & Five Ideas Comparisons

This Ohm Beads blog brings live image comparisons of the Ohm Beads Leafy and Five Ideas glass.

The Ohm Beads August 2018 collection launched yesterday and included was Leafy and Five Ideas. These are both glass and neither are limited edition which is such good news for collectors.

The Shitty Ohm collection is definitely a love or hate release but Love Hurts 2.0, Darlie the Robot and Leafy are all such lovely designs away from that theme. Leafy and Five Ideas will be available from live images at Great Lakes Boutique tonight. Ahead of that I’m sharing comparisons to show the potential variation.

Ohm Beads Leafy

In stock images Leafy looked very close to Black Coffee. Black Coffee did vary a little with a few quite pale examples making an appearance. For the most part however, it was a very dark almost black glass bead. Leafy actually varies more than Black Coffee in terms of it’s base colour. There are examples ranging from lovely chocolate shades down to the same almost black. Each bead has a single raised leaf detail. These will be lovely moving into the autumn season. Leafy retails at $50.

Ohm Beads Five Ideas

Five Ideas is part of the larger Shitty Ohm collection and retails at $45. These glass really do vary and pay attention to the cream base.

>Ohm Beads Leafy & Five Ideas Summary

I’m really looking forward to experimenting with Leafy a little and think it will work so well with Black Coffee and also Celebrate. It’s actually a very busy bead in it’s own right with the texture and raised details so I also feel it could be an ideal candidate as a focal on a bangle. I’d still love to see Ohm produce essentially the same glass with a fall leaf detail (and it would be amazing for Halloween too.)

For those of you wanting to shop live images, these will be live at Great Lakes tonight to coincide with the start of the Bad Dreams promotion. I’ll hopefully have time to play with them a little more on bracelets over the weekend.

As always I love to hear from my readers. What are your thoughts on the Ohm Beads Leafy and Five Ideas? Did you pre-order any of these glass? If so have you received them and what do you think? Hit the comments and let me know!

    Hmm, I’ve not seen anyone notice yet that Leafy could/should be part of the Shitty Ohm collection. Leaves have been traditionally used for toilet paper in an outhouse, if the ol’ Sears catalog was used up. Just don’t use poison ivy leaves! 😀

      I noticed that immediately too. It’s too close to that collection for my taste!

    I sorta touched on it a little in the original previews but I have to confess that since not everyone is feeling the love for Shitty Ohm, I thought maybe people would prefer to think of it as a nice autumn inspired bead :p

    It’s like they had a ton of left over brown glass …

    I like leafy and would love to have 2 for my Ent. The autumn leaf idea is an excellent one. I hope Ohm is reading this!

      They’ll be perfect with the Ent but yes, wouldn’t it be cute with an autumn leaf too? 😀
