For those then appreciative of more feminine design combining it with Pandora beads

All of the new links are large, double links and this is no exception. I’m generally not a fan of floral designs. I find them too twee for my personal tastes. That said I was thoroughly appreciative of the Pandora series from fall 2013. The mix of silver and freshwater pearl delivered an air of nostalgic romance. When i began experimenting with the Pandora beads sans glass, I managed to slip into a gothic romance groove that’s much more my style.

Considering this I didn’t want to completely dismiss the Pandora based on it’s floral theme. This link is beautifully crafted with heavy use of oxidisation. The rear of the link isn’t as exquisitely detailed as the birth month flowers but equally, the links don’t twist around on the wrist.

To showcase this link I opted to team it with the aforementioned Pandora birth month flowers. I wanted to avoid glass entirely as it’s a look that just doesn’t work for me. Rather I created a wholly silver Romantic Sterling silver Hearts & Love Charms - Jinglebell and twinned it with a Pandora rubber and silver creation. Lovers of floral design are going to adore this link. Of the two overtly Pandora I vastly prefer this design. The simple floral focus feels less fussy than Bloom with it’s littered surface texturing. It’s still far from urban but when utilised alone on a rubber bracelet, it just about treads the line between edgy and feminine. You could easily wear this with a leather jacket and skinny jeans without it looking too twee or dated.

For those then appreciative of more feminine design, combining it with Pandora and the existing floral links will create a spring time bracelet.

There’s one final note I’d like to make regarding the practical aspects of this line. After experimenting quite extensively with the whole release, it feels to me that the tiny gap in the link that lends Pandora it’s name has been narrowed a shade. I have heard reports of people losing bracelets from their wrist though I’ll openly say this has never Pandora compatible Charms to me. A couple of these links were downright difficult to remove from neighbouring links. I received the release in it’s entirety, all linked together in a single bracelet and it took easily ten minutes to detach the links from each other. Earlier today a teaser image of an upcoming Pandora release appeared on social media. This Pandora blog article brings a sneak peek of this teaser as a possible Pandora sneak peek.

So those of us coveting this Pandora set have a little over one month of impatience to contend with

I’ve been a huge fan of the Pandora since it’s launch (to the point that i have three) and I wear my fantasy necklaces a great deal. Considering this it’s easy for me to justify the cost. The release is limited edition but of course, how scarce or plentiful these pieces will be is difficult to guess. The collection will debut on Pandora compatible Murano Glass Beads the 11th of April, so those of us coveting this set have a little over one month of impatience to contend with!

In a continuation of the last two years, this Pandora blog article presents a full preview of the upcoming Pandora Easter 2014 collection. Last week I published my news round up for March 2014 and predicted that we’d be likely to hear news of a Pandora Easter 2014 collection. I’d assumed a teaser image released yesterday would ultimately prove to be the Cheap Sports Charms release. I was absolutely incorrect as it was taken from the upcoming Pandora collection.

For the past two years Pandora have been presenting limited edition beads. These are dangle style glass beads in an apt egg shape. Their universal hoop hanger allows them to be used on most charm bracelets, including Pandora. Following a sneak peek of an unidentified and upcoming release yesterday, today brings a preview of the Pandora collection. The release is set to debut on the 28th of March. While the core design of the Pandora beads hasn’t changed, the patterning has. For 2012 we saw sterling silver Zodiac Charm eggs in pastel colours. For 2013 we had stripy eggs with some more vibrant shades.

It’s not a huge shock to see a Pandora collection. They’re cheerful little beads ideal for adding a very apt addition to an Easter bracelet. As mentioned the release will debut on the 28th of March and while there’s been no mention yet of their limited edition status, I think it’s safe to assume. I’ll admit that i prefer these to the previous year offerings. The stronger colours appeal to me and their lack of contrasting colours should ensure they’re far easier to use in bracelets.

Yesterday Pandora distributors globally began showing teaser images of an unreleased collection. This Pandora blog article offers a preview of the limited edition Pandora Collection, including emerald fantasy necklace.
