Ohm Beads Fireball and Waterfall

In early January Ohm Beads released a couple of gorgeous Limited Edition glass beads. Fireball has swirls of yellow and orange with a bit of black, but each bead will be slightly different, as most glass beads tend to be. I just now read the description of the bead on the Ohm Beads website and burst out laughing. “…or the match you light after you dropped the kids off at the pool.” LOL!!!!!! I would bet money that Mike at Ohm wrote that! LOL!!!! Anyway, it’s $35 USD/ $45 CAD, as is the Waterfall bead. Here’s a macro shot of the Fireball. 

Here is Waterfall. My friend Trisha also has one and hers is lighter in colour. I love the groups of three bubbles. It truly gives the feeling of moving water. 

I really don’t have many yellow beads at all but wanted to match Fireball up with some other glass beads. This is an unusual grouping but I love it! The only thing is for some reason it makes me think of the orange shag carpet my parents used to have in the family room! But I like how warm these beads look together. Everything is from Ohm and left to right they are Incremental Change, Mulled Cider, Fireball, Bar Brawl and Live Your Fantasy. 

Waterfall fits in easily with all kinds of beads. Here I’ve got a bangle with the Cold Milk beads and then two Trollbeads, a unique on the left and Silver Lining on the right. 

Here I’ve used the Orange/Navy Trollbeads Leather Bracelet, a couple of Pandora Synthetic Blue Quartz Petite Facets and two Trollbeads from the Happy Summer Kit, called Beach Ball and Blue Fantasy. I really love blue and orange together. 

Lastly, here’s a combo that I was able to get a picture of with the sun shining. We have had so many cloudy days lately and people around here (Southwestern Ontario) are complaining that it’s hard to remember what the sun even looks like! Joining in are Sock Monster and Grumpy Cat. I love the way Live Your Fantasy looks in the sun. I’m back on a bead ban, but someday might buy another Waterfall as I love to have beads in pairs. Is anyone else enjoying these beads or are they on your wishlist? 

Coming up next week is whatever arrives next! There are some Fenton beads coming which I’m very excited about plus I’ve ordered a couple of Azure Bubbles and have some new Pandora beads. Also the Trollbeads Spring Collection will be on the agenda soon. Have a great weekend!

Disclosure: For this blog I may receive some items as promotional samples.

  1. I don’t know about matches & pools but I know I do a happy dance every time I drop my older one off to kindergarten πŸ˜€πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ’ƒπŸ»
    Sock monster is so cute , was he ever released as a bead or was he unreleased ? Could you tell me what is that 3-leaf clover bead on your navy leather?
    Thanks πŸ’•

    1. I think Sock Monster is just an older bead that was retired, but I’ll see if I can find out for sure. That clover bead is from the 40th Anniversary bracelet set that Trollbeads had last year. I like it on leather because you can really see the shape of it. Ah, the kindergarten drop off dance…I remember it well! πŸ˜€

  2. I like every combination you’ve done here! The orange and blue leather bracelet is a must have for me now that I’ve seen it. I can’t find the Sock Monster for sale anywhere. I LOVE Grumpy Cat. I can’t do a bead ban because you keep showing me such great things!!!

    1. Yeah, sorry about that Suzanne. And I just got some beadmail from Fenton Glass Jewelry. Oh my goodness, the beads are gorgeous! I’ll take lots of photos and put them up here on Tuesday.

      As for the Sock Monster, apparently it was never released. I bought it at the Bead Bash at GLB in the fall. It is so cute that I bet they could sell a lot of them if he was released.

      1. I didn’t know Fenton Glass made jewelry. I can’t wait to see it. I’m assuming it’s the same Fenton Glass company that’s been around for years?

  4. Oh Martha, did you really have to introduce us to another line of beads for us to get hooked on? πŸ™‚ I checked out the Fenton Glass website and there are some gorgeous beads! Can’t wait to see your post next week!

    1. Yeah, sorry Dawn! And what’s nice is that the beads are as lovely in real life as they are on the website. If you’re on Facebook I think I posted a photo of a few on my page. πŸ˜€

      1. I think I may have to get Fenton’s Pink Carnival and Kindred Spirits. I just checked your FB page and it looks like you have Kindred Spirits. I was wondering if it is more pink or red. It’s good Fenton says their beads fit on most major brand bracelets and I see you have them on a Trollbeads bangle. Oh boy! No reason not to order!

      2. Yes and they fit on Pandora too. In my photo, Kindred Spirits is in the middle and looks amazing on the Pandora Honeysuckle Pink leather bracelet. 😍 I’ll have to go look at the Pink Carnival one you like!

  5. I like Winter Berries as well which looks like the one next to Kindred Spirits in your photo? Great to know they work on Pandora bracelets as well. Would you say Kindred Spirits is more pinks than reds? I have the Honeysuckle Pink leather bracelet. Just need the new beads now! Thanks for the good info! 😊

    1. I’d say Kindred Spirits is more pink than red. Winter Berries is to the right in that photo. I’ll throw a couple more photos in the comments section on the FB page so you can see it on the Honeysuckle Pink!

  6. Wow! You are so right about the Honeysuckle Pink bracelet! I have the Frangipanis Forever beads too! I’ll be all set! Just have to order the Fenton beads quick! Thanks again Martha!

    1. You’re welcome Dawn. Hope you like them! Do look at the core though, as they are like the Chamilia ones. One side is like a Trollbead core, the other side has the label on it. I haven’t taken any pics of them yet but am planning it for Tuesday.

      1. Good catch on the core, Martha! I see what you mean. I have one of those brains that wants symmetry, but for some reason it doesn’t bother me if the core sides are different; probably because I don’t see them both at the same time. Will be looking for your Fenton post on Tuesday!

      2. Ok, thanks and that just reminded me that I should take a photo showing the cores of all the brands I have. These ones are not as noticeable as Chamilia’s, in my opinion.

  7. If I had a vote I’d say the manufacturers should do both sides the same. I like the look of TrueBeadz and Pandora’s brand label on both sides of the glass bead. Then there’s Trollbeads who doesn’t do any which is ok too. πŸ™‚

  8. I absolutely love your “shag carpet” combination! πŸ˜€ Perhaps it is the lack of sun that makes me love the warmth of it. The dampness is just making everything feel so much colder than it should. I love the Waterfall combos, too, but need the warmth right now!
