GETTING PERSONAL

It’s funny how trends recycle every now and then. Ten years ago, I remembered that I picked up a DIY book on making friendship bracelets. The idea of friendship bracelets was totally uncommon in Indonesia FYI. My family and friends thought wearing bracelets made out of cotton string was simply weird. To me however, those bracelets had a personal meaning.
Fast forward today, my best friend told me about Pandora, a jewelry brand from Denmark. What appealed most about Pandora was how personal each and every product is to the owner. Wait… you might be asking how can ready stock jewelry pieces be personal? Well, that lies in every customer’s customization process.

In a flash, Pandora bracelets probably look just like any other gold/silver bracelet piled with random charms. But, it turns out that everything (read: everything) is customizable and exchangeable thus making these jewels function as a storyteller.

Here’s my little starter bracelet.. equipped with a couple of animals that I can’t quite share of what they mean to me.. The bag clip charm however, represents my old love for bags.. I think I’m buying the shoe charm next time.

The Danish brand doesn’t only offer bracelets, but it offers rings, necklaces, earrings, and timepieces too.

There is always something for everyone in Pandora. For those who want something more luxurious, Pandora also carries the 14-18k gold range. Doesn't purple and gold look great together?

Oufff.... I remembered buying a bunch of charms back in 2009 in aussie. one for graduation of daughter of a friend, one for a birthday charm for another friend, than another 4 for xmas gift, they really drained my pocket money, seriously! Pandora's stack ring are also awesome, but than again, the co. I work with produce stack rings decades ago... so... yeah...

It is crazy how bracelets can capture your personality and past! I used to do the same with my Thomas Sabo charm bracelet and lovelink bracelet!

Looks so pretty when put together with the different textured and coloured beads:))

I love pandora bracelets. I think they are so special esp if you know someone that has a charm bracelet bc you can always buy them a charm that relates to them and its a special meaning to both of you. My boyfriend's mom started her own pandora charm bracelet last year...the downside is that some of the beads are expensive (at least here in the states they are). Love your pictures btw!

What exactly specifically does classic mean when given to fashion pandora jewelry? Well, according to Webster, classic can be a typical of excellence. This excellence is rendered into the components and style connected with costume pandora bracelets at http://www.pandoraaustraliabraceletsau.com/?p=17.
