Green Crack by Ohm Beads ($40 USD/$50 CAN) was partly inspired (I think!) by the gorgeous forests of the Pacific Northwest. This is Cathedral Grove on Vancouver Island in Canada, so a bit north of where the Ohmies live.
The bead is the barrel shape and even thought it looks broken, you don’t have to worry about it. There is a fine layer of glass, I believe, over the cracks so nothing gets caught. It’s a really cool effect. The glass is limited edition, so if you want it don’t leave it for a year or anything. It is so pretty with different shades of green and maybe even a little yellow in there.
At first I thought to use it with the two Blue Holes I have, plus UFO and Live.
Due to the green I thought Gnome Home would look cute with it.
Green and purple always look nice together, so I used Dreamscape and Purple Haze with two Trees beads. I love this bangle!
Here is a green and white bangle with Growling Hippo and Picnic Basket. Since Cold Milks are no longer available a good substitute would be True Beadz True Air Siberia.
I had a mess of beads in my little corner of our breakfast bar in the kitchen and the Trollbeads Seabed Stripe was sitting right there. It looked like the green stripe matched the Green Crack and then I added in the Light Turquoise Prisms. Since I had one barrel shaped bead and one traditional shaped one, I decided to put the silver Live bead off to the side.
Next up is a full bracelet. I think Sock Monster is irritated because he doesn’t like the drink that is in the Ohm Jar bead.

I did want to try the Green Crack with orange, so made up a brightly coloured fun bangle. Left to right are Live Your Fantasy, Blue Hole, Fly, Strawberry, Expand, Blue Hole and Green Crack.
Here’s another view.
Finally, check out this graffiti I saw in my city. I’m not keen on graffiti but this is the second time I’ve seen an Ohm tag in my city. 🤔
Anyway, what are everyone’s thoughts on Green Crack? I think it’s wonderfully fresh for the summertime but do wish it was not a Limited Edition but going to be a regular collection bead. As of a couple of days ago Perlen still had some Dreamscapes, if anyone is looking for those.
Ohm Beads USA still has Luminous, Reflections, Trees, Strawberry, Rainbowed and of course, Green Crack. They can be purchased here. This is an affiliate link, meaning if someone makes a purchase I would get a small percentage. That’s what those two ads on the right hand side are, also. Anyway, the next blog post will be on The Feelings collection. I’m away today with the beads n’ coffee gang but hope to have some wifi at lunch so would love to hear some feedback!
