Ohm Beads Strawberry Revisited (With a Game of Thrones Twist)

This Ohm Beads blog brings a little inspiration for the limited Ohm Beads Strawberry. This time there’s a Game of Thrones inspired twist.

The Ohm Beads Strawberry launched in May as one of the limited edition designs for the season and I actually reviewed it just a couple of weeks later.

In just a few days the Ohm Beads Lemon is joining the collection with identical dimpled texturing.

For the original review I went with a predictable summer garden bracelet. More recently I experimented with the Strawberry on a dragon themed bracelet and I liked the end result.

In previous years I’ve dabbled with Game of Thrones charm bracelets. This year I’m incredibly behind with work in general and I still haven’t started watching the new series. I’ve shared a couple of ideas on social media (follow me on Facebook, Instagram and the Great Lakes Boutique Facebook and Instagram pages) but I hadn’t really intended on creating much for the blog. When I think about dragon themed bracelets, I tend to focus a lot on texture. I’ve recently been experimenting with using the Ohm Beads Earth-Ness locks to represent scales. I decided to try the Strawberry on a dragon bracelet and I actually really liked the effect.

Ohm Beads Strawberry Ordering Details

The Strawberry is a limited edition and though Ohm don’t declare the numbers of these produced, they generally aim to ensure their availability throughout a season. With Trees now marked as a collectors item, I think you need to be securing your Strawberry glass before we head into the autumn season. That said a lot of my retailers are currently sold out of this bead. You can shop directly via Ohm Beads USA (and please note this link is affiliate.)

Great Lakes Boutique are selling theirs via live images here and here.

Alternatively you can shop via any of my retail partners below (and again I’m only linking to the stores that do still have stock.)

Ohm Beads Strawberry Summary

There is variation in these beads. I was treated to being able to browse lots of them together at the Spring Bead Break event though stupidly I never took photographs. Though many retailers are sold out right now, the bead isn’t yet marked as a collector’s item at Ohm Beads USA so they should (hopefully) be able to re-order.

I love the texturing on the Ohm Beads Strawberry. Most of the examples I’ve seen are also a true red as opposed to drifting off into the more orange hues, which is a really common problem with red glass.

This bracelet also gave me the opportunity to showcase the new True Beadz True Dragons again. These beads began shipping from Great Lakes yesterday and if you’ve yet to order you can do so here (or even from live images here.) Alternatively both Beads Fanatic (Spain) and Star Bijou (Germany) are also stockists.

As always I love to hear from my readers. What are your thoughts on the Ohm Beads Strawberry? Is this a bead you indulged in? Hit the comments and let me know!

    I like the Ohm Beads Strawberry very much, but admittedly only thought of using it along the lines of childhood memories of picking strawberries,etc. I love everything dragon and medieval, but my mind would never go to using the Strawberry bead in that way. That’s one of the things I really love about your bracelets…it makes me think “out of the box.” Now all I need are the beads!

      Aaaw thank you <3 😀

      I mostly stumbled on this combination by accident to be fair. I was photographing for Great Lakes very late one night and this happened 😛
