Those spends however must include either a Spring Refractions glass or a Forbidden Fruit. The rest of your order can be anything you like from Ohm Beads, including the amazing new CustOhms.

Spring Refractions is an interesting bead. I’ve never actually disliked it but it isn’t the easiest design to style. Today I’m sharing a quick bangle combination I’ve been wearing that includes both Spring Refractions and the new Seeded Fig.

Ohm Beads Seeded Fig & Spring Refractions Inspiration

This is a super simple combination because honestly I don’t have enough beads of this colour to make it into a bracelet. They’re unusual shades.

On reflection I should have used my rose gold bangle for this but it was on my wrist and apparently that meant it was also out of mind. I used the Spring Refractions as the focal point, flanked by two Blush Water-ish and finally the Seeded Fig. Seeded Fig is definitely the closest colour I’ve found to the shade of Spring Refractions. Incidentally I saw someone share an image on social media of Spring Refractions with the new Seeded Salad and that looked to be a near perfect match too.

Ohm Beads Seeded Fig & Spring Refractions Summary

This is definitely the most success I’ve had in personally styling Spring Refractions. In the past I’ve tried it with Trollbeads rubies (too dark) and amazonites (too turquoise.) I also used it with the Trollbeads Day 2015 glass which was the happiest I had been until this combination.

For those of you still debating the Bad Dreams Promotion, please be aware it ends at midnight EDT on Sunday night. If you’re already shopping CustOhms (and notice we’re low stock on a few designs now,) then it’s most definitely worth considering the promotion. Bad Dreams is very cute!

As always I love to hear from my readers. What are your thoughts on the Ohm Beads Seeded Fig? If you’ve received any CustOhms how have you been wearing them? Hit the comments and let me know!

    Not a combination I favor at all .Love the Waterish Stoppers with the Seeded Fig, I think it brings out the hint of sparkle in the seeds. You are so right about the Spring Refractiond being a tad difficult to work with especially if one wants to darken it up some.
    Don’t get me wrong Spring Refractions is a pretty bead but more Cool than I want. I have been trying to Warm it up to emphasize the purple plum shades or to deepen the green.. So far everything either washes it out and makes it cooler. Even more limiting for me is not being a fan of brand mixing.

    For now my two Spring Refraction beads will probably be on a bangle flanking Bead Fairy with a couple Stoppers. Don’t care for the Bad Dream promo, can’t see why I want a reminder of a bad dream but to each their own. Looking forward to more comparable ideas for Spring Refractions.
    P.S Think as most retail stores are bursting with Fall , Halloween and Thanksgiving merchandise,kids heading back to school and the heat folks seem so ready for the season change.
