Ohm Beads Yellowstone Collection Review

This Ohm Beads blog brings a dedicated review of the Ohm Beads Yellowstone collection.

It’s been quite a while since I’ve published an Ohm Beads editorial. Unfortunately there was a minor issue with some of my samples so September and October beads were very late in reaching me. Today I’m showcasing the Ohm Beads Yellowstone collection. It consists of three silver beads, the Ohm Beads Brave Bison ($95, €86 or £77,) the Ohm Beads Dancing Coyotes ($70, €65 or £58) and the Ohm Beads Moosing Around ($70, €65 or £58.)

I’ve mentioned before that I’m not a huge fan of animal themed charms. This might sound a little peculiar as the things I do for my own pets is a little crazy and I’ve always shared my life with animals. That said I generally thing they’re a little over represented in the charm bracelet market. We’ve seen so many “cute” animal charms over the years and it feels like all brands have the token animal beads. I have to say however, these are incredibly well executed. The detailing on the beads is amazing and fortunately they also escaped being smacked with the cute bat. There’s no bulbous eyes and no overly large stomachs. All of the beads are a good size. The Brave Bison would be described as a focal piece as he’s really quite large. I know there were mixed feelings regarding the two heads on the bison and I absolutely understand. It makes far more sense when worn on a bracelet than when pictured alone however.

I did try a few different glass combinations for this bracelet but everything looked almost a little gharish; Yellowstone is famed for it’s amazing colours after all. Ultimately I opted for an assortment of Trollbeads gemstones and specifically I’ve used the Brown / Yellow Chalcedony, the Zebra Jasper and the Calcite Rock. All of these are stones with enormous variation but for reference they beads used here are now available at Great Lakes Boutique.

Ohm Beads Yellowstone Summary

One thing with themed beads is always their versatility. We’re now moving into the winter season and of course the Christmas period. Moosing Around has amazing potential for winter themed bracelets. I’ve mentioned that I rather like the idea of using the upcoming True Beadz Olive as the basis for a pine forest themed winter bracelet. This bead would be perfect for that!

As always I love to hear from my readers. What are your thoughts on the Ohm Beads Yellowstone Collection? Did you indulge in any of these beads? Hit the comments and let me know!

    I like your choice of stones for this bracelet. Perfect.

    And by chance my Moose arrived in the mail today – I really like the pose – I prefer it to some of the just standing there stiffly category of animal beads. Now the the two-headed Bison, I’m not sure what to think…

    I agree that the sculpting in these is excellent. Now I’m wishing they would to a wolf. I know of a couple wolf beads out there but want one with more presence for a specific GOT bracelet.

    As always thanks for the review – I think your bracelet does a great job of capturing the feel of Yellowstone N.P. and your photos are amazing. I’m now tempted to the coyotes despite having no idea what I would do with them.

      I have to admit.. the moose made me giggle a bit. For a while and before I had to relocate, I had an enormous amount of land – far more than my pony needed. I’d debated keeping reindeer which actually isn’t super uncommon over here but I don’t know much about them so I decided not to pursue it. The pose of that moose made me think of a dog when it’s waiting to play fetch. I just had a small fit of giggles picturing trying to train a moose to play fetch 😛

      Aaaaaaanyway!

      Thoroughly recommend the Dancing Coyotes too. They’re a really interesting shape

    How does the size of the bison compare to the trollbead lion bead- the old one with the standing lion? Thanks!

    • endangeredtrolls

      Far larger 🙂

    I purchased Ohm’s Yellowstone set when it launched, and I bought an extra Brave Bison. I like the fact that the bison is designed with 2 heads, which allows it to be used in a head-butting pose either side of a focal bead (such as Redbalifrog’s turquoise) in a nicely symmetric designed bracelet. I do understand that the 2 heads of the bison does look a bit odd while free-standing, but it works very well once strung, and even better when worn.

    Victoria – the bracelet you designed, using those particular stone beads, makes a gorgeous representation of Yellowstone National Park! Also, love your concept of using Moosing Around in a winter woodland bracelet. I’m planning to try to capture Brave Bison in an iced prairie bracelet this winter (possibly with Trollbeads’ Rutillated Quartz being the frozen prairie grass)… time to play soon! ❄️❄️❄️
