Today I’ve got an all silver OHM bracelet using some new to me beads that are pretty fun. First up is Pi Pie ($40 USD). It’s a perfect bead to help celebrate Pi Day on March 14. One of my kids is really good at math, so this is a great way for me to think of him.
Next is Short Circuit ($50 USD). The same son also likes fiddling around with electronics by taking things apart and trying to make something new, so again, it’s a great way to think of him. Also, this bead has always made me think of the Borg, from Star Trek. 😀 The detail is amazing!
The third bead is Player 1 ($55 USD). I have a lot of great memories associated with video games, starting with my very first one, Pong! I remember getting it for Christmas in the 1970’s and it was so exciting! I’ve had a few consoles since then with Nintendo being my favourite company.
The fourth bead is called Magic Sight ($40 USD) and as a lifelong wearer of glasses and contact lenses, it is quite meaningful to me.
Here’s how they fit on a bangle.
With these fantastic silver beads I thought I’d make up a full silver bracelet.
Some of these beads are not available for sale anymore except on the secondary market, but I wanted to use them anyway, as I really love them. I’ll put an asterisk beside beads that are still easily available to purchase.
Below left to right are OHM Jar*, Hug Me, Coffee Collection, Pi Pie*, Picnic Basket* and Cupcake*.
Below left to right are Magic Sight*, Short Circuit*, Luna, Lucky Stars, UFO* and Player 1*.
Below left to right are Gnome Home*, Aunt Gnome*, Mr. Gnome*, My Latte*, Chi Chi Sticks, Sock Monster, three Typo beads* and Circus Tent.
Lastly, I made up a mixed brand bracelet, thinking of Short Circuit representing the Borg from Star Trek, in an ‘outer space is cold’ theme. This uses some True Beadz in the Stormy Heavens colour group.
Lately I’ve been having fun doing Live Stories on Instagram and have started a YouTube channel called BeadWorldTV (although I’m not sure that it will take off.) I do the Live Streams with my friend Trisha of @the_mcctrish and we have some guests lined up from TrollbeadsUSA, Redbalifrog, Star Bijou and Ohm Beads. Join in the fun as you can directly ask questions and we will try to answer. The TrollbeadsUSA guest will be this Friday at 3:45 EST. 🎉 Hope you’ve enjoyed this look at some ohmsome Ohm Beads!
Disclosure: For this blog I may receive some items as promotional samples.
Very cool! I’m definitely going to check out your new YouTube channel.
Don’t get too excited, LOL! Thanks for reading, April and have a great day!

Hi Martha. Purple Haze with Magic Sight…there’s a statement there, for sure!
Hi Suzanne! I thought of that after I took the picture, ha ha ha!
Love your beads! You’re right about Short Circuit looking like the Borg! 😂 I’ve thought of trying to get some of these like UFO and Player 1 but have held off so far since I’m not sure how often I’d wear them. They are so much fun though. I love your bracelet with the Stormy Heavens. I’ve been trying to collect an entire set of Stormy Heavens beads before they vanish, and was excited to have just been able to order the last two I needed.
Hi Kim! They really are such fun beads, aren’t they? Have you been watching the new Star Trek series? We’ve really been enjoying it! Short Circuit is such a great shape too. I like the cube shape contrasted with rounded glass beads. I’m going to try Player 1 with the Trollbeads Pokémon beads for a fun gaming bangle one day. Glad you were able to get the last two Stormy Heavens that you needed!
Hi Martha! I have not actually watched the new Star Trek series yet (Hanging my head in shame – will I have to turn in my geek credentials???) I definitely mean to though. It’s streaming, right?
I’m not sure where it’s on in the USA, I’m afraid, but in Canada it was just on TV. I hope you can time to watch it!
I love the stories behind your beads, really meaningful. And will definitely take a look at your bid to become a vlogger superstar 😊
Marisa, I’m glad you enjoyed hearing why the beads are meaningful. There is no bid to become a vlogger, LOL! I thought I’d be able to put the Instagram Live Stories onto YouTube but I can’t figure out how to do it. But when I get a new bead I will definitely put something on YouTube as it seems to be very user friendly. I’ll ask my son to help me some more!
