Now that it’s spring we Canadians are starting to think about warmer weather and spending more time outside. The Ohm Beads Strawberry bead is particularly perfect and the Butterflies and Picnic Basket are going to be so wonderful for the summertime. Let’s start with the glass Strawberry bead, as glass is what got me starting to collect Ohm Beads in the first place. It’s a Limited Edition and retails for $35 USD/ $45 CAN. I love how it’s a true red and wanted to see how it fits in with some of my other beads.
First, with some old Pandora, I’d say the Strawberry bead fits in perfectly!
It doesn’t match the red Ohm Beads Broken Heart perfectly but I think they look good together, especially with the Cold Milk and Waterfall beads between them.
For a strawberries with ice cream and chocolate sauce vibe I added in the Bolly Wood beads.
Here’s a simple red and blue bangle. So, I think it’s safe to say that the Strawberry bead fits in with a wide variety of other beads, which I always love! And the Waterfall bead really looks stunning here. It’s so hard to not want glass beads in pairs!
Next is the beautifully detailed Butterflies silver bead, which costs $55 USD/ $70 CAN. It is actually two butterflies joined together.
There is quite a bit of space between them. You can put it on a bracelet or it sits well on a necklace like this. My husband asked me why there was a butterfly on an asteroid. I liked the @ohmbeads description better…and I quote, “Unicorn on the moon becomes a butterfly! Because the asteroid is really a unicorn turd. And it fertilized life as we know it. ” LOL!!!! I had it on my Insta Story and that’s how this description came about.
Finally, the Ohm Beads Picnic Basket, costing $30 USD/ $40 CAN is an absolutely adorable silver bead. I love how the lid is up on one end.
In the combos below, the Butterflies bead perfectly fits on a Trollbeads Unique Leather Bracelet. The red matches the Strawberry bead and the Picnic Basket really pops on the Dirty Twisted Bangle.
I made up a big bracelet with a few friends from the Ohm Beads gang. I really like how the blues and reds look on the Dirty Bracelet! Grumpy Cat is never happy, wherever he is, but whatever! I’m going to make a lot of use out of theses beads in the summer. I’m also very happy to have a new red glass bead, as they are not that common and this is such a happy shade of red. Is anyone tempted to get any of these beads for the summer season?
