Ohm Beads September 2018 Collections Launch

This Ohm Beads blog alerts readers to the launch of the Ohm Beads September 2018 collections.

Happy release day ladies and gents! Today sees the global launch of the Ohm Beads September 2018 collections with Astronargh heading the group as the Bead of the Month. It’s a strong though varied release for September and if you’ve missed the previews or indeed the social media coverage of Astronargh, you’re going to find everything you need right here.

Ohm Beads Astronargh

The Ohm Beads Astronargh is the Bead of the Month for September and limited to 999 pieces with a retail price of $180. Astronargh was intended as a blind release but was actually unveiled at the Ohm10 event and of course the images spread across social media. There seem to be three variations to this bead (please note I’ve not seen any official written confirmation of this from Ohm, nor if a certain version is more rare than the others.) As suspected the Astronargh sees a return to the original Argh design, this time as an octopus in space wielding laser guns. The variation is with the tentacles and the guns. One has the gun on the left, one on the right, the second is a double shooter armed on both sides (and pictured below!)

For those of you yet to order or who perhaps are going to try and get multiple versions, we still have stock at Great Lakes Boutique and global shipping is free.

Ohm Beads Suckers

The glass this time is the Ohm Beads Suckers, retailing at $50 and this is not a limited edition. Originally I assumed it had been inspired by Astronargh but according to Kit’s Instagram it’s actually in honour of the Market Street Gum Wall in Seattle.

The bead does vary in regards to those coloured details and there are more of them than the stock image suggested. If anyone wants to shop live images we have those over at Great Lakes Boutique but there aren’t many left now.

One thing I will state is that this bead looks far better in person than images suggest. Some beads just don’t photograph well and this is one.

Ohm Beads Pre-Wine

The Ohm Beads Pre-Wine is retailing at $70 and is not a limited edition. It’s a slightly articulating charm so the grapes do wiggle a little from the vine bale which is a lovely touch from Ohm.

It’s not what I’d describe as a small bead and though I haven’t yet taken full studio images, you can see it on the bangle below. The leaf details are absolutely beautiful and it feels a nice, apt bead for the fall season.

Ohm Beads Beasties

Beasties are the latest collaboration with popular artist Gus Fink and as usual his amazingly crazy sense of style has been imbued into this little character charms. There are three variations, each limited to 555 pieces. These are blind packaged and they’re actually inside miniature test tubes so those of you hoping that retailers could somehow grope the beads through the packaging and secure you different versions are out of luck. They’re super cute and perfect for Halloween.

Ohm Beads Heart Engine

Finally comes Heart Engine, the latest BBQ design and I’m more than a little enamored with this. It has a distinctly steampunk vibe with some fully moving parts. Unfortunately no more official images of this piece have appeared which is a real shame.

BBQ designs are special editions which mean they’re made to order. Production time is usually between six to eight weeks so please do remember if you’re wanting one for Halloween, you need to get those orders placed. Some retailers will likely have ordered some stock for their stores so you can always check if anyone has it in hand and ready to ship.

For those of you keen to shop, you can do so via any of my retailers below. Shipping can commence immediately!

Ohm Beads September 2018 Summary

It’s a somewhat eclectic mix of designs this time from beads perfect for fall (Pre-Wine,) through to those inspired by old favourites (Astronargh) and some typically quirky creations. It’s a strong release though and aside from the amazing Heart Engine, the Beasties have my heart this time around. I was truly impressed with the packaging of these charms (and I’ll try and get up live images as soon as possible.) The whole idea of little monsters being delivered in test tubes was inspired and though it’s only packaging, it really helps set the scene and the feel for these beads for me.

As always I love to hear from my readers. What are your thoughts on the Ohm Beads September 2018 collections? Do you have a favourite? Did you pre-order? Are you hoping for a specific version of Astronargh? Hit the comments and let me know!

    NO life images of Suckers at GLB. Exclusive Bead store have them though.

    Heart Engine has moving parts?? Oh my. I just went even higher on my priority list. A question (so I can try to prioritize correctly – the Heart Engine is not a limited edition, right? It should be available for a bit, hopefully?

      As per the article it’s not limited but it is a special edition meaning it’s a custom order. You can expect to wait upto 8 weeks for delivery after placing the order unless the retailer have chosen to hold some in stock 🙂

        Thank you. I was trying to confirm the difference between the two terms. I’m trying to figure out the priorities for the Great Lakes event this month. I love this bead, but I also love the Golden Scarecrow bead. It looks like it would be wiser to order the scarecrow during the event (if there are some for online purchasers) and then to save more money and purchase the Heart Engine at a later date.

        • endangeredtrolls

          We only have a few of the Scarecrow beads so I’d advise that if you know you want one, you contact us as soon as possible. I don’t think it will be listed on the actual website.

          Both are custom orders so both carry a bit of a wait time should stock not be immediately available.

    Astronargh also has a 4th version, Ray gun in the middle.

  4. Marie & Donovan

    Asronaugh has variations on the helmet and leg positions too. We have 2 laser-holding “lefties” that are unique to each other. Ohm seems to have mixed things up well! <3

      Wow!
