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!
