The Bead of the Month for August is called Hive Mind. There are not many pieces available at 222 per finish, so don’t hesitate if you really like it! The finishes and their prices, in US dollars, are Silver/$70, Dirty/$70, Vermeil/$90, Blushed/$95. I have the Dirty and Blushed finishes and just love them both. Here are some basic photos to give you an idea of what they look like. This is a large bead, which will be evident in later pictures.
Dirty on Silver Bangle
Dirty on Dirty Bangle-really like this look!
Here they are both with some Trollbeads, so you can get an idea of size. I’ll also post a video on the Instagram Stories when I get up in the morning.
When you see it with Luna, which is pretty big, the large size is very evident. This is my favourite look below!
Now, here is the Bee Ohm collection, all six pieces. It is not limited edition so there is no rush to buy them. If your funds are limited and you really like Hive Mind then definitely get that first!
Here is Hive Mind with the Bee Ohm Collection, so you can get a further idea of size.
Here they are with the glass bead from the Bee Ohm collection. This looks like a hidden Mickey if Mickey Mouse had extra large ears!
The Trollbeads Copper Bangle is a perfect match for the Blushed finish!
Here is a bangle with Ohm Gnome and the Bee Ohm collection.
So, I’d be curious who is going to try to get one? I love the large, openwork style and think it has a modern, industrial look. I can’t pick a favourite as I really like both of them and I bet the others are gorgeous too! Here’s one last photo, with Bar Brawl on the top right of the bangle. Sorry about all the watermarking…but lesson learned!

Hi Martha!!! Loved them and I’m crazy to see the other two!!! I wish they sell them in physical stores, to put my hands on them!!!!
Hi Carla! Yes, it’s always nice to see things in person, I agree!
This is a really great design. I love the rose gold one on your copper bangle. I’ll have to think a bit about whether to get one though, since that is a bit on the pricey side for one bead. Better price than if it had been solid gold though, right? 😉
Yes, the Blushed one is not inexpensive, for sure. I really, really love it on the copper bangle too. I can’t even imagine what a solid gold one would cost! 😱
Great styling ideas for your 2 BOTM. Blush looks especially good on the copper.
Thanks April. I absolutely love the Blushed on the copper! I fact, I think I’ll wear that later today after I make a little IG story.
I LOVE your pic with the 2 a Hive Minds and Lunar!! Best look of all. Reminds me of Lunar Chronicles ( you should borrow and read whilst wearing this lovely bracelet)

Hi Martha! I absolutely love the Blushed Hive Mind. The Blushed is my favorite! I also love your bangle with the Dirty Hive Mind and Blushed Hive Mind with Luna Moon in the middle! What a great combo! ❤
Thanks Carol. I like that combo too. It’s very different looking!
