Ohm Beads released the third edition of their Dark Shadows collection and I’ve got a couple of pieces to show today. The Cranium is quite spooky and perfect for Hallowe’en. I really love the detail on the teeth. At first I resisted the idea of wearing this bead to work, but I think it’s small enough as to be unobtrusive on a full bracelet, so I’m going to wear it Thursday.
Widget is perfect for a steampunk look (which to be honest, is not something I can create as I don’t have the beads for it. Maybe someday!).
I was able to put together a mini bracelet to show the size of these beads. They are on the small side. Left to right are Royal Blood, Hot Topic, Cold Milk, Widget, Dark Soul, Cranium, Cold Milk, Mech Tech and Broken Heart. These are all on the Dirty Bracelet, which I think looks striking against the white beads!
Cranium makes a nice focal point for a simple Hallowe’en bangle with Live Your Fantasy and Get in Shape.
I really like the Sugar Sleigh Ride 2.0 with the Cold Milk beads on the Dirty Bracelet.
And finally, I think the openwork style of beads look great on the Dirty Bracelet. Left to right are Merkaba, Blush Hive Mind and T-Rex. The silver contrasts nicely with the dark grey colour. I think from the Dark Shadows Collection my favourite bead is the Cranium. With the dark finish it looks so scary, so I will be wearing it a lot for the last couple of weeks of October. Has anyone else purchased any of the third edition Dark Shadows beads?
