Ohm Beads Rawr Preview

With the holidays behind us, January is always an exciting month for new charm brand releases!  Earlier today, Ohm Beads gave us a sneak peek at their upcoming Geek 1.0 Collection, and now we’ve got another set to look forward to called Rawr.  This release is scheduled for January 11th as well (same as Geek 1.0), and is an extension of the single release T-Rex Skull from early 2014.  The collection includes 6 new designs – 3 silvers named Triceratops Skull, Parasaurolophus Skull, and Velociraptor Skull, plus 3 glass beads called Secretions, Neolithic, and Humerus.

Like the prehistoric creatures themselves, these charms are larger than life and have the size to match.  Similar to the T-Rex Skull, the Triceratops Skull, Parasaurolophus Skull, and Velociraptor Skull are quite long and wide.  They can be worn on the bracelet as a focal pieces, or also perfect on a longer chain like the Ohm Beads drop ball necklace designed specifically for the T-Rex Skull.  The detail is incredible and I can’t wait to see these in person!

The accompanying glass beads are also larger than average and have a rugged, organic feel.  I’m told that they vary a bit from bead to bead, which makes them even more unique.  Their very names conjure an image of an oozing environment that was our primordial world.  These glass are universally cored and fits on all bracelet types including Pandora.

Now, we have a great idea of what’s in store for us from Ohm Beads in January – first, there’s the Year of the Ram with a limited edition two-tone and retailer exclusive all gold version as well as the regular silver releasing on January 3rd, and Geek 1.0 and Rawr will make their debut on January 11th.  In addition, February 4th will bring us another special Valentine’s Day charm called Love Stinks and March 1st will herald in a glass set called 6 pack, most likely a hoppy kit to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day.  The latter two releases we have yet to see photos for, but they should be shortly forthcoming.

Are you excited for this first quarter schedule from Ohm Beads?  What do you think of these new dinosaur designs?

    I have been eyeing the Dinosaur that is presently for sale. Just haven’t been able to buy it. The others look COOL (for lack of a better word). I’m on a tight bead budget this year so I’m gonna be hunting and have to be careful what I select. I think I will go for the GLASS first. Those look interesting and I just LOVE the barrel type beads.

    • Leann

      I know what you mean, there’s so much out there!

  • Sharene

    P.S. The Parasaurolophus, that one is not for me really. I do like the others tho.

  • Wronda Gustafson

    I have the Trex and it is amazing. People grab my arm to take a closer look

    • Leann

      Oooh, that’s great! Do you like this new dinosaurs?

      • Wronda

        I do like them. We’ll see how many of them I will purchase – I have to watch those $$$.
        By the way, congratulations on the birth of your child. May you know much joy and laughter in the years ahead.

      • Leann

        Thank you! Yes, there’s always more on the wish list :).

  • Lozzie

    I think these are really cool and well designed but I am not the target market for them. Definitely a unique piece of jewellery to own for the right person though.

    • Leann

      I know what you mean; Ohm does a lot of niche pieces ;).

  • FairObjective

    These are so creative and detailed, I can’t help but want them, as well as the T-Rex from last year. My littlest guy loves these dinos also, which makes them all the more appealing to me. The glass barrels are perfect complements, and I especially like the colors of Secretions (Ohm comes up with such one-of-a-kind names for their beads). Looks like another winning year for Ohm releases. Hope you’re getting enough rest and feeling great, Leann! Take care…Kim

    • Leann

      These would make an awesome bracelet! I’m doing well, but would really love some more sleep. Breastfeeding is a LOT of work! 😉

      • FairObjective

        I hear you, Leann. I breastfed all 3 of my guys, for a total of about 5 years between them. They were – and are – all big guys, and they needed to feed every 2 hours or so all night long. My firstborn and my youngest did this until well past a year, regardless of how well I planned by feeding right before bedtime. I just got used to being permanently sleep-deprived…though it was difficult sometimes, admittedly. I always used to wonder how my friends who’d had babies around the same time as me got them to sleep so well through the night. Mine just didn’t, even when I tried some of my friends’ suggestions and tips. You’ll probably be on a regular schedule long before I was, though; try to be patient with yourself and your exhaustion. It may not feel like it now, but this initial time with your sweet baby boy will go by so quickly. Hang in there, Leann, and try to get some rest (eat enough protein, also!). Take care…Kim

      • Leann

        Thanks Kim! We had some problems from the beginning – he was jaundiced and had to get treatment, partly because my milk took a bit longer to come in and he was dehydrated :/. Then when he was breastfeeding at first, I don’t think he was latched right and it got way too painful. I’m just now getting the hang of it and took a few trips to the lactation consultant. I never realized how much work it is! The whole thing takes me more than an hour each time…seems like I’m always breastfeeding, haha.

      • FairObjective

        Wow, sounds like you had some challenges right out of the gate, Leann! It *does* get easier & easier (the breastfeeding, I mean). I can relate to your experience with jaundice; my first guy’s bilirubin levels were high after a couple of days, and we had to run him in for treatment as well. That’s spooky…seeing your baby’s skin and eyes tint yellow, then worrying you won’t be able to provide the nourishment he needs to keep him healthy. It worked out fine, though, and it sounds like you have everything covered perfectly. The pain part in the beginning: OUCH! It does get incredibly painful for a while, doesn’t it?! So glad you seem to be past that part. Like I said: easier & easier. You’re doing great. – Kim

        We’re doing much better, thank you! My hubby is going back to work together and I’m gonna have to handle Alex by myself, yikes! :O

    Very creative! I love these!! Stopping by to say I hope you had a wonderful holiday and Happy New Year!

    • Leann

      Thank you! I had a great holiday :). These are very cool, aren’t they?

  • Melinda Deyhle

    WOW. I am loving Ohm more and more!

    • Leann

      Yay! 🙂

  • Bonnie May

    Bio teacher – need the glass, can pass on the skulls. 😉

    • Leann

      Very nice! They’ll be perfect for you :).
