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 http://www.jinglebelljewelry.com/crystal-beads 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.
