Ohm Beads came out with a limited edition glass bead called Trees ($35 USD/ $45 CAN) and three silver floral beads ($45 USD/ $55 CAN) that were added to the regular collection. The Trees glass bead is in their iconic barrel shape and is such a fresh shade of green. The first colour I always think to put with green is purple and it did not dissappoint. The beads on either end are Purple Haze and in the middle is Get in Shape.
Also with green my mind goes to copper. Here is the Ohm Beads Bar Brawl on a Trollbeads Copper Bangle and then a Blushed Hive Mind with the Trees beads. So gorgeous in the sun!
Trees also goes with Confetti Upchuck, if you have that bead. Sock Monster looks upset that Babo is not sharing the cookies.
And here Grumpy Cat is showing how he dislikes nature.
The Trees beads match the Trollbeads Earth bead perfectly!
The three silver beads are an openwork style, which I really like because it makes them quite light to wear. Also, the design goes all the way around them, so no matter how they turn, there is something pretty to see.
This is my favourite one and it’s called Lotus. The Lotus makes me think of the lotus pond out the back of the Starbucks in Ubud, Bali, which is probably one of the most scenic Starbucks in the world. That’s the view from the Starbucks patio below.
Rose is also very lovely.
Here they are both on a Copper Bangle with a Trollbeads Pink Facet Delight.
I also put the Lotus bead in this multi brand combo. It’s in the middle of the top right bangle.
The third flower bead is called Iris. I really wish I had some in the garden, but I don’t!
Lastly, I made up a bracelet using all four beads. I thought the wooden beads called Bolly Wood were thematically appropriate and then the rich, caramel coloured Bar Brawl bead pulls it together, I think. The little friends below are Growling Hippo and Cute Chameleon. On the left is the silver Mama Terra.
So, any favourites from these four beads? Or combos from above? I’m partial to the Lotus bead, as I mentioned. And I love the freshness of the Trees beads! Since I like purple I should like that bangle the best but I like the bracelet with the Bar Brawl and wood beads and that’s what I wore on the weekend. Coming up Thursday will be the Sweet Flowerworld Elfbead.
