Ohm Beads has made the most delightful sleigh full of characters with a dangling Santa for the October Bead of the Month, or BOTM (pronounced bottom). In the words of Ohm…

A Pumpkin, A Turkey, and an Old Man walk into a Gnome Bar. For Jack, Tom and Nick… the rest is history.

To me, the funniest part of the Sugar Sleigh Ride 2.0 is Santa’s rather generous tummy. It looks like Ohm Gnome has kicked Santa out of the sleigh and he’s hanging on, but his pants are slipping off. Check out the details below. 

I had a hard time getting a good photo of the turkey in the backseat, so made a video instead. Here you can see how Santa is articulating. He actually slides along the rails. He’s not sliding in this video, but trust me, he does slide. 

There are a few ways to wear this bead and this first way might be how I use it the most…on a necklace! The kids in the schools where I teach are going to LOVE this! 

I also like it by itself on a bangle. It’s a substantial size and makes a good statement on its own. 

Or, with some colourful Ohm Beads might be a way to go. 

Below left to right are Blue Hole, Ganges, Confetti Upchuck, Thames, In the Koi Pond and another Blue Hole. 

It’s way too early for Christmas bracelets but I couldn’t resist trying trying one out with some True Beadz. Left to right below are True Touch Gooseberry, True Touch Strawberry, True Blossom Siberia, True Taste Siberia, Almost Quartz and True Touch Gooseberry. 

Lastly, I bought some little chocolate treats in Stratford, ON when I went to see Macbeth this week and thought they would go well with the Sugar Sleigh Ride 2.0. This bangle has two True Touch Pumpkin True Beadz plus the River of Life and Celebrate Life from Trollbeads. 

This is quite a cheeky bead, with lots of detail and a fun story to it. Perfect for the holiday season, which starts tomorrow in Canada with our Thanksgiving. Almost all our family birthdays take place between now and Christmas, so with Hallowe’en coming up also, this bead is aptly named. 

I don’t usually do blog posts on the weekend, but have a lot of really cool seasonal beads to show before the next big collection comes out. So Monday will be some Ohm Beads spacers, Tuesday will be the Ohm Beads Jiangshi, Wednesday will be the Redbalifrog Book of Spells and Friday will be the Ohm Beads Dark Shadows (3E) glass beads. Happy Thanksgiving to my fellow Canucks!
