i was just wondering if any of you actually got the black friday limited edition charm, i did! this is the only year i have gotten it and i think it's beautiful but i was expecting more people to be posting pictures of theirs :l
I am so glad you’ve asked! Sadly, I haven’t been able to get hold of one as I’m in the UK and I don’t know anyone in america who’d be kind enough to send me one!!
But please do submit a picture of yours! :D I’ve seen a few, but you’re right…no one has really shared it! :(
Pandora Collection for 2013.
I’ve just seen it and absolutely cannot wait to share it with you guys!!!!
Oh my god - So excited!!! :D
another thing, i've been tossing up either getting a leather bracelet or the silver one. what would be better? e.g. last longer and overall quality.
Now that’s a question! Don’t you think you should have a personal preference on aesthetics? The silver is certainly more hardy and will last a long time, however the leather is also fairly tough provided you take adequate care of it! :) e.g don’t wear it in the shower and don’t completely fill it up (leather stretches)
It just depends on what kind of look you’re going for! After all, no two bracelets are ever the same! ^_^
These Lego jewelry pieces were made by my friend Chloe who commissioned me to take some macro shots. I fucking love them! get in contact if you want to make a purchase. :) http://fuckyeahpandorabeads.tumblr.com/
Tee Hee, a cheeky little re-blog. So while I run FyeahPandorabeads, I also make jewellery and baby-items on the outside and will be setting up my etsy very shortly! :) But alas whilst that is in progress, please check out my friends photography and Vlog tumblr. He’s pretty talented! I mean…look that the pictures of my jewellery?! Awesome. ^_^
Domain Change and Job Potential!
So I thought I’d update you all a little about what’s happening here - so today I decided that FuckYeahPandoraBeads was a little vague as well as openly rude. So I have changed the URL to FyeahPandora - Which although is still quite rude, is a little more obvious as to what this blog is about! :) I’ve been wanting to change the URL for a while now and very shortly I’ll be attaching a custom website address too :) How exciting!
I also decided to change this as I’m applying for a job in my favourite jeweller (Oh my god, how awesome would that be to have a job in a jewellers?) and I really want to share this with them as they are my favourite Pandora and Trollbead stockists, I want to show them how passionate I am about charm bracelets! :)
So wish me luck! And let me know about the domain name change - What do you think? :) Any ideas for a custom URL? ^_^
Have an awesome weekend everyone - Submissions coming very soon! ^_^
i live in Aus and bought my best friend who lives in the UK a pandora charm. i've been looking for a bestfriend one but none here then i saw one of your post of bestfriend charms! i'm totally devasted but love your page!
Oh lady! I’m sorry to hear that, a good google usually helps you get a scope of what’s available! But if you need something for a special occasion, I can sure help you out with a reccommendation. :)
Thank you so much though, I’m glad you adore my page! ^_^
This is a little personal update, and although some of you may say this isn’t Pandora related - you’d be mistaken! I was very very fortunate for my 21st birthday to receive three of Pandora’s LovePods. :) I am SOOOOOOO incredibly lucky. ^_^ They are retired now with the coloured gems, but are available from a few select jewellers with remaining back stock. :)
This is my Beautiful Pandora Bracelet!
The Butterflies means the new beggining I’m having as entering the University just like butterfly first its a Larva then it grows as a beautiful butterfly.
Second is my suitcase- I really love thisss! and its so pretty! i got it because i want to travel the world!
the heart is for those things that I love and I just put all my heart into all I want to do!./
The camera - is for all those memories i got in my heart (thats why its next to the heart)
and my butterfly - my aunt gave it to em as a grad gift ;D
I was checking the pandora site and the camera and suitcase are at 30$ and i was kinds pissed because i bought them at a store that sells pandora for 40 $ bucks -.-
Oh I’m so sorry to hear you got over charged! :( It’s always important to do your research before spending your money on something like this - but alas, it’s still a gorgeous charm! I loved your metaphor for starting university! I know I certainly felt that way, like I could spread my creativity! Thank you so much for your submission, I absolutely adore that camera charm too! So cute!!! ^_^
I've been craving one of these charm bracelets since I first saw them at a jewelry store one Christmas. I had been hinting at family members that this was what I wanted, but none of them understood (I'm not good at hinting) and I wasn't about to be selfish and start begging. Now that I'm old enough to work, I want to purchase a bracelet! I intend to do so this week, but I'm not sure where to begin. Any advise?
Where to begin? Well, you’ve begun at the right place, and that’s right here! I can recommend if you’re going to buy online, double check with pandora’s official website for a list of registered sellers. Don’t buy off of eBay unless you know exactly what you’re looking for and know how to spot knock-offs. But try and make friends with your local jeweller who stocks it, because there are always fun promotions and little parties going on in the stores :)
You can purchase a starter set, where you get a bracelet and a few charms to get you started - but these are usually chosen for you. Or buy a bracelet on it’s own and then reward yourself with a nice charm of your choice later :) It’s always something to look forward to!
Hope that’s helped! ^_^
I’m back & WOW my bracelet is filling up quickly!!! as you can see, I have a new bracelet now :-) I have my original black leather double wrap. I kept the original bead (forget me knot) on that one, because it was the start of my Pandora journey.
since my last post, I graduated high school & turned 18 so I guess those occasions called for a few more charms ;-)
my friend Ellie bought me the new silver bracelet for a graduation/birthday present, it was so sweet of her!
I’ll explain all my charms now :-)
Purse: from my Grammy for my birthday. I’ve always been her little shopping buddy
Open-Hearts: Valentines Day gift from my WONDERFUL boyfriend who started this whole thing!
Princess Carriage: by FAR my favorite charm. My graduation gift from my boyfriend, who insists that I’m his little princess :-)
Ballerina shoes: from my parents, given to me at my senior dance recital.
Angel: birthday gift from my Grammy; she calls me “Precious Angel.”
Flower spacer: from Ellie, because we both worked at a Greenhouse together this past spring! she surprised me DURING school with this charm- so sweet!
Cupcake: 6-month anniversary present from my boyfriend. (many stories linked to this charm! I wrote about it in my other posts)
Heart/Cross/Anchor: self-bought. reminds me to be strong & keep my faith and always love others.
Queen Bee: I’m attending the Savannah College of Art & Design this fall and I’m going to be a SCAD Bee!!! from my parents for my 18th birthday!
Elephant: from my best friend of 18 years for Graduation/Birthday. we each got each other animal charms- the elephant means good luck.
Best friends charm: from my friend Jenny! we exchanged charms at Graduation.
PHEW! all done. I can’t believe my bracelet filled up so quickly! I’ll keep you updated :-)
Ahh I’m so pleased to hear from you! :) Congratulations on your graduation and also for turning 18! It’s so lovely that someone bought you a new bracelet for your grad/birthday! When you go to college will you be joining a sorority house? :) I wish we had something like that here in the UK! Your bracelet has filled up so quickly! What’s the next charm on your list? Hope you’re okay! ^_^ x
