Bead samples were provided by Ohm Beads.
Today I have a selection of pieces that are part of a large Ohm Beads release. I think my favourite thing that is out today is the Dragonfly Lock paired with a new Chain Bracelet. It makes a delightful, lightweight bracelet that is perfect for spring and summer. You can put a few beads on, but I intend to wear it by itself. The sizing is similar to Trollbeads bracelets, in that you need to consider the length of the lock. Count on about 3 cm being taken up for the lock size.
There are three new Slim Glass colours, as shown above. They are so juicy looking and match up with previously released regular sized beads. The colours are called Orange, Dustberry and Lime.
I tried the Dustberry and Lime colours with Lilac Rain and thought they matched well.
But ultimately I went with Dustberry and Lime together with the silver Mandala bead. I really like this combo the best.
The colours match my daffodils that are starting to come up! We are quite behind with spring here in Canada. We’re also behind with vaccinations, but that’s another story. 🙄
There are a couple of very cute silver character beads that caught my attention. The first one is called Hungry Hippo and I love the details of the knife and fork.
Here’s the back of it.
The other character bead I thought was cute is called Panda Snack. Again, the details are really nice and I like the logo on the back.
I put the two of them with a new hot pink glass bead called Work Hard.
The glass beads on the outer parts of the bangle are called Orchid Rain. It’s still available! 😀
Lastly, there are three gorgeous glass beads that really caught my eye. This one called Delicate Flower is so beautiful, but I had a hard time capturing its beauty. It has an ephemeral quality to it. It’s like it’s an impression of a flower, not an actual flower. Perhaps a memory of a flower. I love it, in any case.
Speak Softly has a stunning overlay of teal glass.
When looking at it straight on, it almost appears to be black.
Big Stick is also really beautiful.
I used these beads together in a large bracelet and tried to incorporate other beads in this colour range that were in my collection. Did you see that you can do custom orders of four letter words now, in the cube style like the LIVE and NOLA beads below? What a great idea!
So, that’s it for now. Check out the whole April release at OhmBeads.com as there are many more pieces. OHM will be having a month of giveaways starting today. They will be in various places on Instagram and Facebook. I’ll be hosting one here later this month. Do let me know if you are getting any of these new releases from OHM!
Just picked up the new slim “Lime” and “Orange” because I need to get on the slim bead train. They will add a nice new flair to the look of the mostly-all-glass bracelet’s I’m wearing. And those colours will fit in nicely with any Tiki bar themes I work out this summer. As well, “Speak Softly,” “Big Stick,” and “Delicate Flower” are now on the mental list. Ohm is really firing on all cylinders with their glass–lots to love lately!
And, lovely photos as usual! Don’t know how you do it.
Thanks Samantha! I agree about Ohm’s glass lately. If I had been on the ball I would have bought a couple of those Fairy Wrens that are so pretty. As you know, I always like the start of the summer season with seeing your lovely sitting area at your house. One of these days I’ll get around to getting a fountain for our backyard. Maybe this will be the year!
I highly recommend fountains. They can be a bit of a faff sometimes (cleaning, making sure they’re filled, blah, blah, blah). But the payoff is big. So relaxing. Maybe you can convince someone that this would be a great Mother’s Day present. 🙂

I’m in love with Delicate Flower!!! Can’t wait to have it in my hands and to admire it!!!
It really is so lovely!
Love hungry hippo and delicate flower. Think that will be part of my birthday purchase. Wondering about those new chains… lots to love in this release!
I agree, it’s a great release! I really, really like the Chain Bracelet with the Dragonfly. It’s the kind of thing you could just wear all the time-nothing else is really needed!
Panda Snack is a delicious bead! I do enjoy all of my Ohm silver beads and that Delicate Flower glass bead is so pretty. I do like their slim glass , and, I definitely want an Orchid Rain bead, or two of them, and will take a look at their website. As you know, I’ve been trying to avoid bead websites as I should not buy any more until I am working again, but you always inspire me to buy yet another treat for myself!
Sarah, the Panda Snack is so cute and I need to put it with the Trollbeads Wise Bamboo glass someday. Bamboo makes me think of green and then it makes me think of spring, which is a wonderful thought these days. 💚
You styled them all so well! The zesty colors are perfect for Spring and Summer. The last bracelet has such a great space travel vibe.
Thanks April. I ended up taking that one apart and re-making it into a permanent OHM bracelet. I’ll post it on the giveaway day!
