OHM have been very busy lately! Three new collections have landed as well as four new glass beads and one stand alone silver bead, most of which are Limited Edition!
We'll start with the new Limited Edition 'Puppet Master' collection, which features 5 Sterling Silver beads in the guise of characters from the cult classic horror film of the same name. The Puppet Master collection features 'Blade', 'Jester', 'Six Shooter', 'Torch' and 'Tunneller' straight from the silver screen and into silver beads! Each one is incredibly detailed and has real character, and if you're a fan of the film then this collection is for you.
Continuing with the horror theme 'Jiangshi' is not part of a collection, but a stand alone bead. A Jiangshi comes from Chinese legend and folklore, and is also known as a Chinese Hopping Vampire, Zombie, or Ghost. Usually depicted as a stiff corpse dressed in official clothing from the Qing Dynasty, it will move around by hopping with its arms outstretched. If you are unfortunate enough to come across a Jiangshi (extremely unlikely), it will feed of the Qi (life force) of its victims, but fear not, you can ward it off by sticking a piece of yellow paper with a spell written in chicken blood on it to its forehead and it'll bother you no more! Jiangshi is a brilliantly made, original piece, which is great fun.
Next up is the anti war collection 'Make Beads Not War'. A total of 7 new beads, a mix of glass and silver, make up this new collection, and all of which have a military theme. From various coloured camouflage to tanks, if you're looking for something a bit different or if you have friends or family in the military, then "Make Beads Not War' could be for you.
'Dark Shadows' returns in a revamped 3rd Edition! As well as featuring all the beads from the very popular steam punk themed collection, it now has the addition of 6 new spacer style charms! Now for the real twist! All of the beads have a Black Ruthenium plating which guarantees a blackened aesthetic to the sterling silver charms! Whether you're a fan of dark fantasy, urban fantasy, or the horror genre, these charms bring something a bit darker to your bracelet.
OHM have also released a some Limited Edition glass beads this month. 'Purple Haze', 'Dreamscape', 'As Above' and 'So Below' make their debuts, and they are absolutely beautiful! All of which are the Barrel shape that OHM are becoming increasingly known for, and feature wonderful hues and patterns. 'Purple Haze' has stunning golden hues with purple swirls running arond it, while 'Dreamscape' sees a variety of warm colours from oranges, blues, reds and purples in an almost irredescant finish.
'As Above' and 'So Below' are another pair of Limited Edition glass beads that go together perfectly. Both have the same pattern but have opposite colours. 'As Above' features a black bead with a white lattice design, while 'So Below' has a black lattice on a white bead.
All of these fantastic beads from OHM, and more, are available now from us here at the Exclusive Bead Store.
