Ohm Beads Seeded Dragon Fruit Inspiration

This Ohm Beads blog brings a fall inspired bracelet starring the Ohm Beads Seeded Dragon Fruit.

Over the course of last weekend at Great Lakes Boutique we received the second delivery of Ohm Beads CustOhms. For those a little behind on the Ohm Beads news, CustOhms are new limited edition glass designs released in batches. Batch one is the set currently circulating, typified by the Seeded designs. Batch two are faceted dichroics due to launch in September.

My initial thoughts on batch one based on the stock images were that they were very summery for my tastes. My opinion changed entirely when I had the opportunity to sit down and begin styling them. They’re really lovely. Some of the designs use colours that are actually translucent which makes for an interesting mix. The seed details are actually glittery and really pretty in person. Though my initial favourites had been Lakes, Seeded Fig and Seeded Blue with the latter two because of their more autumnal colours, I’m actually loving Seeded Dragon Fruit and Seeded Papaya.

Seeded Dragon Fruit is the red design and what didn’t really show from the stock images is the red is translucent. This creates such an interesting effect on the bead. For the white half the glitter details are on the surface. For the red half they appear to float in the glass.

Our second batch are actually more dramatic in this effect than the first.

I’ve mentioned on social media that this bead feels so festive! It will be absolutely perfect come Thanksgiving and Christmas but of course stocks may have exhausted before then. For this bracelet I wanted to style it for the fall season. I initially mixed it with some Trollbeads Green Jaspers with the aim of creating an autumn foliage vibe but I’ve always struggled to work with reds and greens without thinking of Christmas. Instead I’ve used the retired Ohm Beads wooden beads and a Trollbeads Wings of Amber. The silver beads are a mix of Ohm Beads and Trollbeads and are predominantly nature inspired. I used the Ohm Beads Wood Ent alongside the Trollbeads Skeleton Spirit as an ode to the changing of the seasons more than Halloween.

Ohm Beads Seeded Dragon Fruit Ordering Details

The Ohm Beads Seeded Dragon Fruit and most of the CustOhm designs are currently available at Great Lakes Boutique via the link below. Do please be aware that while we have ordered more for the event, which designs we receive and in what numbers is proving completely random. Our first batch had no Lakes and we still haven’t seen Fern Ridge. Our second batch had no Bustling either. If you are coveting a specific design, I’d advise on ordering sooner rather than later and don’t purely depend on acquiring them at the event 🙂

Ohm Beads Seeded Dragon Fruit Summary

I can’t stress how lovely this bead is in person. It’s one of the colours that least appealed to me in the stock images and yet it’s so striking! I don’t think any images will do justice to this bead and that’s unfortunate as so many depend upon online shopping.

For the holiday lovers out there, don’t miss this one. You’ll wear it so much from Thanksgiving to Christmas!

As always I love to hear from my readers. What are your thoughts on the Ohm Beads Seeded Dragon Fruit? Which is your favourite of the CustOhms? Did you indulge in any Seeded Dragon Fruit and do you like the CustOhm concept? Hit the comments and let me know!
