My Ohm Beads Story

The other day the Ohm Beads team posted the query about how long people have been collecting. I went through my order history with Perlen and it showed my first purchase was exactly three years ago! My first beads were In the Koi Pond and Nuts and Berries. Here, I’ve got the beads I’ve purchased in order going around clockwise, starting from the bottom left.

What initially drew me to the beads was the ‘barrel’ shape. It adds interest to a bracelet and feels really nice to the touch. After the first two beads I bought, out came the Holiday Drinks collection. I fell in love especially with the Cold Milk beads and bought two. I use them all the time as they go with everything! My next favourites are probably the orange and purple ones from the Six Pack collection. They are really fabulous in the sun. The purple one in particular makes me think of grape soda (we call it pop in Canada) that I used to drink at my Nana’s house with my cousins when I was younger. The wood beads I bought a bit on a whim as I wanted to recreate the look of the main floor of our house, but in a bracelet. I haven’t quite achieved that yet, but it’s a definite bead goal!

Here are my little silver characters on the Twisted Bangle with some barrel shaped beads.

This is my all time favourite bead photo, taken in the fall, of the Bar Brawl bead.

Finally, here’s my whole collection. So, please share your Ohm Beads story! Do you remember what your first bead was?

    I have only been collecting Ohm for about a year. Before that I had just been collecting Pandora. My first beads were their tractor and the blue/green Aurora that you have. I’ve added a lot since then but I think my favorites are the barrel shaped ones too. And their twisted bangle is the most comfortable bracelet I’ve ever worn. They come up with the most unique designs! Your blog is my favorite and I add beads to my list daily from your ideas. Thank you for posting so often, I check everyday!

      Thanks so much for the kind words, Mandy! I also think the Twisted Bangle is the most comfortable bracelet ever. I think a lot of people start out with Pandora because it’s absolutely everywhere. Have a great weekend!

    Love your collection! I started with Cute Ufo and fell in love with Ohm after getting Love Hurts! OhmMyGod is one or my favourites. I already filled up one bracelet. It’s so much fun!

      Ooo…nice that you got the Love Hurts! I like how it’s always a surprise as to what they come out with.

    Beautiful collection! I got my first Ohm Beads a little over a year ago in a Black Friday retired sale, plus I’ve been lucky to win a few on Facebook! I have around 10 total (all silvers no glass) but want to get more! I love Lil Devil, that was one of my first Ohm purchases. Interesting you have mostly their glass.

    Wow three years ago, I must admit mine was probably just as far ago. My sister was living in Boca Raton and a jewellers website was selling Ohm T-Rex and she bought it for me as my love for dinosaurs is a bit crazy. ^_^ I do hope they continue the RAWR line and I need to hunt for the glass pieces. ^_^ Love your story ❤ At the moment, I'm hosting OHM Gnome from Seattle. His enjoying the London life and a detour to the Canary Islands haha. 😅

      Yes, it’s too bad the glass pieces are now sold out! My friend has Secretions and it’s really neat.

        Definitely going on a hunt, the textures on those pieces look amazing. 🙂
