Today’s blog post is a sky themed one with the new UFO and Rainbowed beads from Ohm Beads. The UFO ($70 USD/$90 CAN) is so awesome with lots of detail. I love the little cracks and patches and how the hole goes through diagonally.
On the bottom is some lovely detail. I really like beads like this that have lots to look at from every angle.
Rainbowed ($40 USD/$50 CAN) has a little patch of cloud, which you can see in some of the photos. I like to think of this bead as a reminder that there is always something positive, even if the skies seem cloudy.
The first combo I tried was with these two new beads and my old Luna. Luna is a great match to the UFO size and theme wise, but as it’s no longer available there are similar but slightly smaller beads that could be used like Redbalifrog’s Luna Moon or Faerybeads’ New Moon. The other glass beads here are my beloved Purple Haze beads.
For a whimsical Zombies in Space bangle I used the Jiangshi and the True Beadz Sputnik dangle.
Next up is a bright, nature themed bangle using the green Trees beads and the silver Iris and Rose beads.
To expand on the life and nature idea I used the adorable Saul the Narwhal, Woodstock, My Precious, Mr. Gnome, Butterflies and Paula the Red Panda silver beads.
Look at this little smile!
Since I had some brightly coloured Ohm Beads out I decided to go for it and put together an array of fun beads. Most are retired or sold out limited edition beads but the Strawberry and Trees ones are still available.
Continuing with a space theme I’d thought I’d try to gather up any beads of an inky blue shade. The Ohm Beads Waterfall at the bottom of the photo is perfect with the deep swirls. The bead to the right of it is an Elfbead and everything else is Pandora and Troll, other than the Luna.
Finally, here is my favourite bracelet of the bunch. I call this one Sock Monster Goes for a Picnic on the Moon. There are six brands on here but I think they work so well together.
Below left to right are a Pandora Petite Facet, Trollbeads Lotus Top, a Melanie Moertel bead, Trollbeads Smile of Stars, Ohm Bead Purple Haze and Sock Monster, a Summersday bead and the Ohm Beads UFO.
Below left to right after the UFO are Elvira by Beauty Beads from Perlen, another Summersday bead and then the Ohm Beads Picnic Basket.
I had so much fun playing around with these beads and the UFO is a real standout for me. Coming up later this week will be Aunt Gnome and Gnome Home, also from Ohm Beads. Did anyone else get Rainbowed or the UFO, or are they on your radar?
