Ohm Beads Skiing Preview – The Perfect Charm for a Winter Getaway

This jewellery blog article celebrates the launch of the new Ohm Beads Skiing charm – the perfect commemoration of a winter getaway (or perhaps for those of us that just like to day dream!)

Ohm Beads are appealing to many people due to the sheer array of charms available. They have designs to represent everything from sporting activities to aspects of popular culture and they’re fully compatible with all major charm and bead brands.

We’re finally into February, the end of winter for many of us but also the perfect time of year to escape on holiday. For those that adore the winter sports, skiing and snowboarding become more an obsession than a hobby. With this in mind, today marks the official debut of Ohm Beads latest creation, Skiing.

This bead is super cute! For me it’s reminiscent of the Ohm Beads Carolers which I reviewed back in December and proved to be one of my favourite Christmas charms.

The little charm is funny accessorised for a session on the slopes with beanie and skis both accounted for.

From the side the little guy looks in full motion, the only thing lacking is a “swoooosh” noise.

Aside from stock photographs, Ohm capture some fabulous high resolution images of their latest charms and certainly these help to capture all the details, as can be seen below.

At the centre of the Ohm Beads philosophy is the personal touch. They strive to produce designs that resonate with their customers. This can happen on multiple levels be it a charm remembering a special person or a more light hearted ode to favourite pastime. With this in mind they created the ski element of this charm with a view to personal engraving.

Each ski is around 1cm in length and 2mm in width so it could accommodate a date. This could be a very sweet reminder of a holiday and just adds a personal touch.

Ohm Beads Skiing Summary

This is a super cute design and absolutely perfect for those that love partaking in winter sports. Actually I hope this is an idea they choose to expand on as I’d love to see a snowboarding charm. In celebration of the Ohm Beads Skiing launch, look out for my reviews on two perfect accompaniments for this release; the Ohm Beads Snowshoes and the Ohm Beads Igloo.

As always, I welcome any and all thoughts on this new charm.

    Hi Victoria, I am not a skier but this charm really is super cute.

    I have taken advantage of Perlen having Ohm already and have just received my first order – two charms.

    I wanted a bronze coloured charm to complete a bracelet and the bronze lux was perfect. It’s enamel I think, and I am really impressed with it. The other charm was the Air charm as I quite like the idea of collecting the four elements – haven’t got a clue what I will do with it, so at the moment it’s in the charm box waiting for the other three to turn up!

    Is there any reason why the pictures are coming out very small on the webpage when I open the article? I have to click on them to make them big enough to see?

    Thanks,
    Debbie

      Hi Debbie,

      Are you using a mobile device or a PC? We’re in the process of a mega re-haul of the blog design but we’re doing that on a staging area so nothing in the “live” area should have been affected (technically ;)) It all looks the same as usual to me but there are always differences between browsers etc so if you can provide me any details I’ll ask the “tech guy” to take a look when he’s home 😉

      I’m happy to hear that your charms arrived! I’ve been known to buy things that I have no idea of what to do with them also so I can sympathise 😉 But the point is.. once you do know, they’re ready and waiting! 😉

      I’m not a skier either but isn’t he cuuuute? :p

      Kind Regards
      Victoria

    Hi Victoria,

    I am on a windows 7 laptop using Internet Explorer 9, and I am using my mobile broadband dongle to access the internet. I only noticed it last night. I have to click on the image and it opens it and then if I use the back button the image then shows as the right size in the article.

    Is the “tech guy” your lovely other half by any chance? 😉

    • endangeredtrolls

      He is indeed 😉 He’s got two weeks off before he starts his next contract so I’m absolutely exploiting his skills!

      If he indeed manages to pull off everything we’re hoping, the website should be FAR faster, much more stylish, easier to navigate and just a bit sexier! 😉 Unfortunately it’s nothing I can actually do as it’s all custom coding so all I can do is trying and whip him along 😉

      I’ve taken note of it and I’ll ask him when he’s home (he’s currently out collecting hay for my horses! :P)

      Kind Regards
      Victoria

    I don’t ski either, but this little guy just makes me smile! 🙂 (I admit that I am still wearing my Christmas bracelet around the house, because I enjoy the Ohm carolers, snowflake, and gingerbread man so much!)

    • Jennifer Wr

      And Mr. And Mrs. Claus are still on my list for the bracelet, for next Christmas. I think I might end up with nearly all Ohm silvers and Troll glass on my holiday bracelet, now that I think about it!

      • endangeredtrolls

        I must admit I think Ohm’s festive silvers are wonderful and they have such a large array that all compliment each other perfectly. My Christmas bracelet featured a LOT of Ohm silvers too 😉 Ooooh and of course, they might make new Christmas designs for this year!! 😀

        Kind Regards
        Victoria

      I don’t think there’s anything wrong with this 😀 We still have snow on the ground so it still feels wintery 😀

      They’re such lovely charms anyway that it feels a shame to put them away until late in the year doesn’t it? 🙁

      I love the Ohm Beads snowflake – I wear it so often on fantasy necklaces 😀

      Kind Regards
      Victoria

      • Jennifer Wr

        Thank you for making me feel a bit less wacky for still wearing my Christmas bracelet. 🙂 And yes, it is still very much winter – we are forecasted for 12 to 16 inches of snow tomorrow. I am ready for Spring to arrive! 🙂

        • endangeredtrolls

          I know the feeling 🙁 I think by the time we’re into February, most people are REALLY feeling ready for spring but like yourselves, we’ve had a reappearance of the snow. Every day this week it’s snowed 🙁 I don’t know why I’m surprised as it always does this in February! 🙁

          It’s like the weather is actively mocking us “ready for spring are you? Well here! It’s still winter!!”

          Hope you’re staying warm over there 🙁 I’ve seen some reports of the blizzard in parts of the States!

    The skiing bead is really cute and the chance to engrave it is a very good idea! Why doesn’t the core go through the centre of the bead?
