Ohm Beads Spring Refractions Live Images at Great Lakes Boutique

This Ohm Beads blog alerts readers to a live image listing of the upcoming Ohm Beads Spring Refractions at Great Lakes Boutique.

Tuesday sees the global launch of the Ohm Beads Spring Refractions as the Bead of the Month for April 2018. Though beads don’t ship until next week retailers have of course started to receive their shipments. Ohm did warn from the beginning that the beads would show enormous variation and that is proving correct.

This bead feel perfect for the new season, especially when teamed with Sunflowers which launches on the same day. From my personal perspective, I’d recommend purchasing Spring Refractions in pairs as it will make the styling for you far easier.

As of right now Great Lakes Boutique have listed a batch of Spring Refractions from live images. This should make hunting for pairs much easier (and do note there’s a difference in size too.) They’ve included the individual serial code of each bead as well (in case certain numbers have special meaning for you.) Global shipping is free as standard so check out the link below:-

Happy shopping!

    Exciting that they will be shipping soon!

    I admit though I have mixed feelings about the live images… I love live images and at this pint rarely order any glass or stone beads without them but I pre-orderd mine as I didn’t want to risk them selling out. It’s a hard call on whether to pre-order. Another reason Ohm needs to do more production glass and not just BOTM/LE glass.

    I’m tempted to take a peek to see if there is a good pair that I just love and need to order, or just I be patient and see what I get.

    When I saw the pictures on the computer I thought most of the beads looked pale and washed out, and that I should pick my beads carefully myself (I also preordered, and I agree with you about the Ohm glass situation). Then I saw the beads on my phone and they look entirely different and much more colorful. I’m going to wait to get my order; if I want to return or exchange I will at that point. I can tell that it’s very hard to photograph these beads accurately as to color.

      Photography online is very difficult — the result is out of the photographer’s hands and wholly dependent on the viewer’s monitor // device settings, and also on a person’s eyesight. 🙂 Live photos are helpful, but shouldn’t be relied on if the color // contrast of an item is super-important. When an artist sends me editorial work, they describe the colors and details to me, so I know what I should be seeing. It’s difficult.

        Thanks, Lola. Very good points that are easy to forget. I have certainly had some surprises arrive from shopping on line both with beads and other online purchases like clothing. It does seem really hard to know how bright the colors might be. And another reason I really wish I could shop in person for more beads within a reasonable distance. But despite living in a major metro area with lots of retail growth, bead stores other then Pandora do not seem to survive, nor many other small mid-priced local boutiques and such. I’m sure it’s the very high rents. I’m looking forward to shopping in person for beads in May at Bead Bash.

          Pippa, you are right. Even trollbeads has a very difficult time keeping concept stores in an expensive mall like those in NY and NJ.

          Sometimes it feels overwhelming trying to figure out what a thing really looks like. And then the camera matters. I disregard phone camera pictures, especially if they’re out of focus or inside. I dislike Nikon. My husband is a professional sports photographer who uses Nikon. You will never get true-to-life color from a Nikon, in the opinion of my eyes. 🙂 I use Pentax and I adore the color for the work I do, BUT, if not set right, true-to-life color can be seriously off. Canon is by far the best default color for real-life images–anybody can work a Canon, it’s so intuitive. It’s too bad we rarely know what cameras are used, because that information can help. Of course it’s still settings and opinion. I’ve emailed with Trollbeads retailers who describe beads to me as they saw them. I found that super-helpful.

      I actually spoke to Mike at GLB and he says the beads are not washed out and are more consistent than the photos show. I was concerned after seeing the photos. I really do like the bead and am sure it will be great when we get it.

    Lisa, thanks! That is a good plan.
    I still get to be annoyed at Ohm though 😉

    • Lisa G

      Yes, especially after this morning!
