This Ohm Beads blog brings the latest teasers for the Ohm Beads March 2017 collections.
Though it’s still only Christmas today Ohm Beads have teased their March 2018 collections on social media. Ironically with the teaser comes news of a shorter preview time for standard releases (though I’m struggling with the logic of running sneak peeks to support a shorter preview.)
The teaser image was separate to the bead names and release dates so it’s upto the collectors to work out which is which. Here’s the information for the March releases:-
- Ohm Beads Bunny Angel – Bead of the Month for March 2018 – Preview / Pre-Order date January the 16th – Release date March the 2nd
- Ohm Beads Trainwreck – Preview date February the 20th – Release date March the 2nd
- Ohm Beads No Evil: Sheep – Preview date February the 20th – Release date March the 2nd – **Blind box distribution**
- Ohm Beads Aries – (Regional release) – Preview date February the 20th – Release date March the 2nd
- Ohm Beads Motherhood 2.0 – (Regional release) – Preview date February the 20th – Release date March the 2nd

Ohm Beads Bunny Angel
The March Bead of the Month is now confirmed as the Ohm Beads Bunny Angel and this clearly comes based on the popularity of last year’s Bunny Reaper. It’s pretty easy to spot the teaser of him in the above image, complete with halo. There’s been no confirmation as to the numbers produced but for Year of the Dog there are one thousand two hundred and thirty four (1234) while Teabag has a production run of two thousand two hundred and twenty two (2222) so clearly Ohm are planning larger numbers for the 2018 Bead of the Month designs.
The preview and pre-order date is January the 19th, far ahead of the release of March the 2nd though it’s looking like this will only apply to Bead of the Month designs.
Ohm Beads March 2018
The Ohm Beads Trainwreck, No Evil: Sheep, Aries and Motherhood 2.0 are all set for preview on February the 20th, two weeks ahead of their March the 2nd launch.
Motherhood 2.0 and Aries are both marked as regional releases. I think it’s safe to assume Aries will be as Aquarius and limited to South America, Europe and Taiwan.
Motherhood 2.0 sounds like an extension of the Ohm Baby release which was exclusive to Europe.
Ohm Beads March 2018 Summary
This information takes us through to the end of March 2018 and into the spring season. I’m a little sad to see no glass mentioned, particularly with recent retirements seeing most glass designs leave the collection.
I think the news of shorter preview times will make a lot of collectors happy though again I’m baffled by teasing the images to coincide with the announcement. Still it does rectify the issue of paying for beads two months in advance of the release.
We’re also seeing confirmation of the next blind distribution by way of the Ohm Beads No Evil: Sheep.
As always I love to hear from my readers. What are your thoughts on this quarter one news? Do you think the Ohm Beads Bunny Angel will be a must have for you? Do you like the idea of shorter preview times? Hit the comments and let me know!
