In Japan, a black cat crossing your path is GOOD luck! In Germany, it depends upon which direction the cat is walking: right-to-left is bad luck but left-to-right means good fortune is on the way!

Pirates and sailors believed that a black cat on board ship would protect them at sea. Welsh and Scottish lore declared that a black cat’s arrival at a new home brought good health and prosperity, and a lady who owned a black cat would have many suitors. Tell THAT to the cat lady!

But the witch hysteria of Medieval Europe changed the black cat’s image.

Cats, like the women accused of witchcraft, tend to exhibit a healthy disrespect of authority (unlike dogs who fawn on anybody). Cats are stealthy. Black cats, in particular, with their glowing orange eyes, seemed mysterious, scary, and up to no good. They were suspected of being the familiars -- or supernatural servants -- of witches. In fact, a woman owning one or more cats became one of the surest signs of witchcraft.

The Inquisition declared black cats the incarnation of the devil and cats were blamed for bringing the Black Plague to Europe. Ironically, reducing the number of cats only made the plague worse because the rodent population spread rapidly. The Puritans brought this superstition of black cats to the New World. Some stories told of the witch turning herself INTO a black cat, which she could only do nine times.

Today, the black cat is beloved as one of the fun emblems of Halloween.

70% of young adults are avid Halloween revelers and spend more money on costumes, parties, decorations, candy and libations than any other holiday except Christmas. A black cat named India “Willie” Bush even lived in the White House with the First Family until her passing at age 18 in 2009.

OHM celebrates the bewitching charms of the black feline familiar with this adorable pussycat bead. She smiles slyly from beneath the wide brim of her classically conical witch hat and her collar is adorned with a silver crescent moon. She adds a touch of spellbinding magic to your bracelet and proclaims you an enchanted cat lover!

You can almost hear her purring or see her tail twitch. That means good fortune is on its way!

    "OROQ No.5 is a thriller in material and shape. This gorgeous Ruby Zoisite in a sweet 5-petal flower shape is magnificent. The Be Together stone represents harmony, self discovery, meditation, and individuality. Love how different this one is and my bead has a great mix of colour."

    "I was so surprised (in a good way) when I opened up this OROQ beadmail. The cut of the stone is amazing and the one I got is such a beautiful ruby zoisite!! I love OROQ and I feel like it keeps getting better!"

    "I really love the bead"

    "This one came in different colors and I got a very beautiful blue one. I’m happy with it!"

    "This bead is just stunning. I am so glad I was able to find this bead as an extra that was available outside the Beadmail subscription. Thank you!"

    "I wasn’t sure when I first saw the red hearts if I liked them or not. When I tried them with some other beads, I began to appreciate them. I really like them now!"

    "Not usually a fan of Rose Quartz, but the cut and quality of this bead is really amazing"

    "Everything shipped fast and the packaging was beautiful!"

    "I love my charm! And shipping was very fast! I will definitely be back to purchase more of the beautiful beads!"

    "It's a great program for those who loves the experience to being surprised."

    "The aptly name Brumal Fantasy, GOTM No.15, is the perfect bead for November. Breathtaking is the adjective that comes to mind as I look at my mesmerizing, crystal clear, triangular shaped glass bead. Every angle offers an exquisite view of beautiful, wintry colours peppered with silver sparkle. A stunning bead I will use often. Delighted!"
    "Beadmail No.20 was a thrill to open! I love really detailed silver beads and this Time Sleigh has so much to admire. It has a steampunk feel, full of pipes, bolts, & other design elements. As someone who desperately hopes to find a vintage Sugar Sleigh bead, this one makes me very happy. Perfect for holiday bracelets or time traveler stylings."

    "Love the colors of this glass! It pairs well with so many of my ohm glass!"

    "Great program. I enjoy the new bead each month."

    "I like the concept of OHM rock of the quarter. I must admit I saw much more beautiful ones in social media. Mine has not so much contrast and color in the stone. But that’s the game of blind bags. I like it anyway."

    "5 stars +++++ One of the MOST beautiful glass beads in my collection! Just the dreamiest design; mesmerizing in every way! Phenomenal colour and complexity. Love!"

    "My favorite beadmail yet! This is a creative and fun design! She’s perfect for fall! The details on this kitty are phenomenal! I’ve been wearing her constantly!"

    "Love the creativity of this design."

    "Love Beadmail 16. It ‘s the perfect bead for my travel bracelet and represents a recent family trip."

    "Fantastic design for the hot summer. Swirls of light blue and white make me think of clouds, and waves with whitecaps. The ideal glass for hot weather stylings or stacks of blue. A great glass to receive from a fun blind bag subscription. Delighted!"

    "I couldn't wait to get my first OROQ and was extra excited to know it would be a Tiger's Eye stone. At first I thought mine was a little dark but then...when I moved into the light, Carol Ann, oh...my...goodness!!! I think I got the best one ever!!! This is a spectacular stone, beautiful facets, and magnificent colouring! I am thrilled!!! The variation in the golden brown stone is incredible and dreamy! Fantastic!"

    "I love all the Glass of the month beads, of course some of them more than others 😉 this one is really nice even if it’s not a 100 percent bead for me. But that’s the joy of surprise beads!"

    "Lindo. Maravilhoso. Perfeito."

    "I adore this GOTM! Such delicious colours swirled together like a Pucci dress. Donut shape is fun. I was really happy when I opened the box! Well done!"

    "I have enjoyed the first year as an OG Beadmail Early Adopter. It has been full of wonderful surprises and lots of fun. I am looking forward to what the next year brings!"

    "I love getting a surprise beadmail each month. Plus, sharing in the surprise and anticipation of the reveal with other beadmail subscribers is half the fun. Some of the designs have absolutely blown me away and I would have been heartbroken to miss out on them."

    "It’s a cool concept! I do love that so much thought is put into making the beads. I love the backstories and learning."

    "It is fun receiving a special surprise in the mail each month! As an adult, it is hard to have that little kid at Christmas feeling and this program gives me that feeling."
