Ohm Beads March 2018 Teasers (Including Ohm Beads Bunny Angel as March BotM)

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!

    That Aries looks really nice.

  2. Ilse

    Yeah, I think my bunny reaper definitely needs a nice little angel friend. Iโ€™m a bit confused about the sheep, I hope no animals were hurt creating this bead? ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I think it’s great that most beads will have a reasonable preview/ preorder time frame. Like you said, at least we won’t have to pay 2 months in advance. The bigger numbers for BOTM will also hopefully keep stock around for those who don’t want to pay so early. Seems like a better system

    I even more confused, but I hadn’t yet got the hang of the previous schedule. Lucky for me you understand it and post alerts so I’ll be fine ๐Ÿ™‚

    As for the releases themselves, Bunny Angel looks sweet but without Bunny Reaper to keep it company I think it may be just to cutesy Christian for my taste.

    I don’t see regional beads as part of the release so March feels really light to me. From the teaser I’m not sure what Trainwreck might be but I’kinda of surprised the didn’t change the name or hold off on its release after the recent Amtrack trainwreck outside Seattle but maybe this will be less of an issue one I see the bead. No Evil: sheep I’m curious about but can’t tell if I like it from the little we see in the teaser.

    As for those regional releases I’m not planning on collecting the Zodiac beads. And Motherhood 2.o looks okay but I doubt I’ll be intersted.

    So appreciate your keeping us informed! Very exciting! Can you please clarify the pre order date? I think you said the 16th then the 19th?

  6. Harley

    I second Trishโ€™s question? I know itโ€™s usually a Friday so is it the 19th? ๐Ÿ˜Š
