Today is Talk Like A Pirate Day and to celebrate I’m taking a look at the new Ohm Beads BOTM Argh. I previously already posted a few live shots since it is such a limited quantity for this month. Only 222 were made, down from the usual 555, since these are much bigger than normal beads and more difficult to make. They’re sold out now, but I did want to highlight the design for this special occasion.
It’s an octopus with a scuba helmet, which makes it a really fun piece. The back of the helmet is engraved with a tracking code used by the company but otherwise doesn’t have any other meaning. As I mentioned before, it came with extra unique packaging – a branded wooden box. The silver bead is large but can be used on both a necklace and bracelet.
I always go back to turquoise and teal whenever I make ocean themed bracelets. The color reminds me of the crystal clear seas off the Caribbean and I can’t resist representing that with the glass. I included all the Ohm Beads pirate themed charms, including LE Arrr, LE Ahoy, Flying Spaghetti Monster, and now Argh. Were you lucky enough to get one of these beads?
