    Pandora Icons | Pandora Autumn Collection

    I hope everyone is staying safe and healthy during this time, while enjoying the Summer season. I hope this blog post adds a smile to your day!

    #BlackLivesMatter | To learn more, click HERE.

    Yesterday, Pandora released their new collection: Pandora Icons. This modern, yet timeless new collection offers elegant designs that provide a fresh take on the beloved classic, the Pandora Moments Snake Chain bracelet. This bracelet was reworked by the Pandora design team to celebrate Pandora’s 20th Anniversary. This bracelet was also a source of inspiration to other pieces in the collection, including earrings, a ring, necklaces and pendants.

    The Pandora Icons collection is versatile, beautiful and offers something for every one. I am excited to share it with you, as well as share my personal favourites. I’ll also share a few other Pandora Autumn release items too!

    So, if you are ready…make sure to grab a cup of tea and let’s get started!

    * All photos are provided by Pandora *

    The Bracelets:

    The Pandora Icons collection introduces two new snake chain bracelets with new closing mechanisms. The new Pandora Moments Sliding Magnetic Clasp Bracelet has a sleek closure that secures the bracelet with the power of magnetic force. I have not seen this bracelet available on the Pandora Canadian estore, so I am going to exclude photos, for now. I have seen it on Be Charming and other authorized Pandora retailers.

    “The new pieces are perfect examples of Pandora’s commitment to eye-catching aesthetics melded with high-quality craftsmanship and cutting-edge manufacturing techniques.”

    – Pandora’s VP Creative Directors, A. Filippo Ficarelli and Francesco Terzo.

    My favourite bracelets from the release are the new Pandora Moments Snake Chain T-Bar Bracelet. The bracelet clasp joins together with a classically-informed t-bar system, which also has the snake chain pattern.

    “We’re proud of the state-of-the-art design features we’ve implemented, including two stylish, secure new bracelet closures and metal mixed with pavé to create a statement through contrast.” 

    – Pandora’s VP Creative Directors, A. Filippo Ficarelli and Francesco Terzo.

    It is interesting to note that the silver Pandora Moments Snake Chain T-Bar Bracelet comes with clip stations, however the Pandora Rose version does not.

    I have added both versions of this bracelet, to my Wishlist! I would most likely wear the Pandora Rose version with a dangle charm and the silver version with about 2-3 charms, plus clips!

    The Charms:

    In this blog post, I am going to focus on the charms that were inspired by the Pandora Moments Snake Chain bracelet. However, Pandora also introduced some adorable new charms, including the Blue-Eyed Fox, Cute Squirrel Charm, Bear, Fox and Squirrel dangle charm and the Skeleton Girl charm. There are also the Disney Minnie Mouse Robot Charm and the Disney Mickey Mouse Robot Charm which also have a nod to the Pandora Moments Snake Chain Bracelet. I personally don’t see myself adding these two pieces into my Disney x Pandora collection, but would love to know what you think!

    I love the snake chain pattern on these charms. I think it is a wonderful way to celebrate 20 years of the Pandora Moments Snake Chain Bracelet and they add a stylish and unique update to a charm bracelet.

    I think it is perfect and so cute that Pandora also brought out an updated Snake charm!!! A wonderful nod to the bracelet.

    Pandora Necklaces and Pendants

    There are some gorgeous new necklaces and pendant options. I have quite a few on my Wishlist. What about you?

    I love the new Pandora O Pendants in this release! My top favourites are the Small Pave O Pendant in both Pandora Rose and Silver. I love the touch of cubic zirconia on the closure.

    I would love to add one of these to my collection, but still debating which metal!

    I currently own two Pandora O Pendants from the original release, last year. I have the Small Pandora O Pendant in Pandora Rose and the Medium Pandora O Pendant in silver. I love both and find them so versatile and fun to wear. The design opportunities are endless. If you would like to see my review on the Pandora O Pendant, I recently created a YouTube video about it. You can watch it HERE or down below:

    The last O Pendant in the collection is the Small Beaded O Pendant. I love the texture to it and it has a daintier feel to it! I am also curious about the weight and thickness of it, as it looks like it might be slightly different from the original version.

    Pandora Pendant

    We also have a new pendant that can be worn on a chain or your Pandora Moments bracelet. It is called the Snake Chain Pattern Open Heart Pendant. This is also a Wishlist item for me!

    Pandora Necklaces:

    The Pandora Logo Pave Circle Collier Necklace is officially available in Pandora Rose! I am so excited. I loved the silver version, but there is just something so romantic and feminine about Pandora Rose.

    We also two other necklaces from the launch:

    This looks so feminine and pretty! I am excited to see it in-person.

    The Polished Ball Chain Necklace would pair beautifully with the new Pandora Moments Small Beaded O Pendant. What do you think?

    Pandora Earrings

    Also released are three beautiful new earrings:

    The Pave Heart Hoop Earrings are a perfect match with the Pandora Logo Pave Circle Collier Necklace.

    The Pink Sparkling Crown Stud Earrings are stunning! I also love the matching ring. These are a must for me!!!

    Pandora Rings:

    There are four new rings in this release. The Triple Band Pave Snake Chain Pattern Ring is an amazing statement piece, while still elegant!

    As mentioned, the Pink Sparkling Crown Solitaire Ring is a huge must for me! It looks so magical and feminine.

    We also have to Marquise Wishbone style rings:

    Both of these would look gorgeous stacked or worn on their own.

    And that concludes today’s blog post! I would love to know what you think about the Pandora Autumn release and Pandora Icon Collection. Please let me know down below!

    Pandora also released a new Youtube video, showcasing these pieces. You can watch it HERE or down below:

    I hope you have a wonderful rest of your day. Stay safe and spread love!

    Pandora Las Vegas | I WON BINGO!

    Happy May Long Weekend! I hope that you and your loved ones are safe, healthy and doing well.

    In today’s blog post/video, I am sharing a Pandora unboxing of a special charm I won through Pandora Las Vegas‘ BINGO Giveaway. It was hosted on their Instagram page.

    I still cannot believe I won!!! I think the last time I won a giveaway was when I was 8 years old. I made a YouTube video of when I first unboxed the charm. You can watch it HERE or down below:

    The Pandora Charm I won is a Las Vegas exclusive. It is called the Lucky Dice Charm. It retails for $50 USD and the SKU is: 791269CZ. It has 14 handset cubic zirconia accents that sparkle when they catch the light.

    The Story & Inspiration Behind my Bead Design with OHM Beads | Don’t Give Up

    Happy Monday! I hope this blog posts finds you and your loved ones safe, healthy and doing well.

    This past Saturday, I premiered a special video on Youtube. It is part two of my “Exciting Announcement” video. If you remember from my previous blog post, I shared that I will be OHM Beads June 2020 OHMistry Project. This means I got to design my own bead with OHM Beads! It is such a surreal, crazy dream come true.

    In my new video, I share a detailed look at my bead, as well as the story and inspirations behind it. This is probably my most personal (and slightly vulnerable) video yet. You can watch it HERE or down below:

    Thank you to this incredible community and to OHM Beads for making this dream come true. Biggest virtual hugs!

    OHM Don’t Give Up

    My OHMistry Project bead is called, DON’T GIVE UP. It is a silver oxidized bead and will be releasing on June 19th, 2020 at 10:00 AM Pacific time zone.
    The limited-edition release of DON’T GIVE UP is part of Project OHMistry and is limited to 111 signed and serialized pieces. A certificate of authenticity is included inside a limited edition box (I actually got to illustrate the box art myself).

    As mentioned in my video, this bead reflects a journey. It is a mountain that has a dark side and a light side to it. Here is the story behind the bead:

    DON’T GIVE UP, you tell yourself. You feel it in your heart and soul. You are meant to succeed.

    It starts with those first few steps. But with all journeys, it is a struggle of faith and self-assurance. Fear finds its way to creep in. It twists your path, voices harsh judgment, creates doubt and pain. It tries to seize the victory that awaits you.

    At your darkest moment, when all feels lost, this bead reminds you to keep going. Push upwards, onwards! Faith is being sure of what you hope for and certain of what you do not see.

    Having faith will guide your journey, through the darkness. The clouds will open, the path will brighten and the further you go, the clearer your path becomes. You will find unexpected help. You will experience achievements, big and small. Before you know it, you will arrive at the end and the start of a new beginning.

    You will be victorious. Every fear, doubt, and painful memory will be conquered.

    What is your “Don’t Give Up” journey?

    Leading up to June 19th, I will continue to share the journey of designing this bead with OHM Beads! Stay tuned for official OHM Beads photos, the process of seeing my bead come to life (from wax to silver) and how I’ve been styling my bead.

    Side note: Can you spot my artist signature, on this bead? I love that OHM Beads added this detail to the bead. You can also find it on the box art:

    Anyway, that is it for today’s blog post! I hope you have a wonderful rest of your day and talk to you soon! THANK YOU SOOO MUCH AGAIN! xo

    Kendra Scott | Color Bar Experience | Customize Your Jewellery

    Happy Tuesday! I hope you and your loves ones are healthy, safe and doing well. I also hope this blog post adds some fun into your day!

    Near the end of February 2020, I went to visit my bestie, Nichol (@MyPrettyCharmedLife) in New Mexico. We had an amazing time together! AND…we did a ton of shopping! One of the stores we went to was Kendra Scott. We booked an appointment to try out their Color Bar by Kendra Scott experience. Although, I owned a bracelet from Kendra Scott already, I had never been into a store! I was looking forward to going inside and customizing jewellery with Nichol, as well as her sister and Presley.

    On March 1st, Nichol, Nichol’s sister, little Presley and I drove over to the local Kendra Scott store. We were greeted by two associates. They told us they were running a bit behind schedule. We were offered champagne, (orange juice for Presley), and the opportunity to browse the store. None of us had minded this, as we had been curious to see what jewellery items were available!

    Browsing around at Kendra Scott

    The retail space was welcoming with a bright, open space. There were modern structures, furniture and styling details. My own home decor is mainly white, gold with light wood notes…so it was fun to see this colour theme at Kendra Scott! This colour theme also made the jewellery pieces stand out beautifully, especially the more colourful and vibrant gemstone pieces.

    The jewellery was beautifully showcased on a variety of displays. These displays also followed the gold and white colour theme. The jewellery was also organized by collection and theme.

    Unlike some jewellery stores, the displays allowed the customer to pickup, touch and even try on the jewellery. This added to the welcoming feel! Even though the associates had been busy, they still asked us if we had any questions or required assistance.

    Just as we were nearing the end of our browsing, we were told they were ready to start our Color Bar appointment. They led us to the middle of the store with a huge display that read: Customize Color Bar by Kendra Scott.

    What is the Kendra Scott Color Bar?

    The Color Bar by Kendra Scott is an opportunity to sip champagne and nibble on sweet treats while enjoying a private styling consultation. After the consultation, you have the unique experience of customizing your chosen Kendra Scott pieces. Customization consists of metal colour (vintage gold, vintage silver, gold, silver, rose gold), as well as gemstones (they have a huge selection).

    The Color Bar by Kendra Scott began in 2009. Here is what Kendra Scott wrote (on their website) about how it works:

    From fan favorites to limited edition stones to exclusive silhouettes, the Color Bar has it all – and it’s easy as 1, 2, 3! Just choose your style, choose your metal, and then choose your stones. The best part is that everything’s hand set in minutes, which means no extra wait whether you’re shopping in-store or online. Sound like fun? We definitely think so too.

    – Kendra Scott

    We all gathered around the Color Bar with the Color Bar Stylist. She showed us a book with the customizable jewellery items available. In the back of the book, it also showcased all the different gemstones available. The book also listed price points, including the pricing of gemstones.

    Below, is a video of us looking through the book, with the stylist, as well as a quick look at the Color Bar area.

    After our consultation, we decided to look at the selection of gemstones first, to give us some ideas on what jewellery pieces to add them to! All the gemstones were placed in trays and organized by gemstone type.

    We all picked out our favourite colours and debated what colour theme to use! Nichol settled on blue, but was torn between two colours.

    I selected a variety of neutral gemstone colours, but I also chose some more darker gemstones too. I had found a dainty chain bracelet in a vintage gold colour. It was beautiful! I thought either of these colour themes would pair beautifully with it.

    After some debate, I ultimately settled on the darker stones. They popped out against the gold beautifully!

    After designing the bracelet with my chosen gemstones, I also designed with two more jewellery pieces: a ring and a necklace. It is always nice to have a jewellery set! Sadly, after realizing the jewellery items were not silver (underneath the gold plating), I decided not to go with the necklace. I have sensitive skin and often can get rashes, especially on my neck.

    I decided that if the bracelet and ring do not cause a reaction, I would go back for the necklace, in the future.

    After I had picked out my gemstones, the Color Bar stylist set them for me! They looked so beautiful! Here is what I picked out:

    Dedra Bracelet

    The dainty chain bracelet I chose was the Dedra Bracelet. It is 14K gold plated over brass, with cubic zirconia accents. I customized it with two gemstones: Platinum Drusy and Abalone Shell.

    Drusy is the natural crystallization on a rock surface. All of our Drusy is genuine and has a rich sparkling appearance. Our range of Drusy colors are achieved by a custom plating process that coats the stone’s surface.

    – Kendra Scott

    Abalone Shell is the artful inner shell of a mollusk, whose hard, rock-like outer shell disguises the moody natural mix of blue and green underneath. Never dyed or enhanced in any way, Abalone Shell is one of nature’s most dazzling materials.

    – Kendra Scott

    Elyse Ring

    I also chose the Elyse ring in 14K gold plating. It features an oval shape and an open design. The Elyse ring is a statement ring, but one I felt would compliment the dainty chain of my Dedra bracelet! I had looked at other statement rings and they felt too bold to pair with the bracelet.

    It wasn’t long before Nichol, Nichol’s sister and little Presley also settled on their chosen jewellery pieces. Nichol and her sister also chose to create a jewellery set. Presley customized a beautiful necklace.

    To see what Nichol picked out (and a closer look at my Kendra Scott pieces), feel free to watch our jewellery shopping haul video HERE or down below:

    After our jewellery pieces were set, they were packaged up in vibrant yellow packaging. The presentation and packaging was beautiful! Each jewellery item was put inside a separate fabric bag. A branded insert was also tucked inside. The fabric bags were placed into a beautiful Kendra Scott themed box, a bow was added and box was placed into a Kendra Scott bag.

    Overall, we all had a wonderful afternoon together! All 4 of us (plus stuffed animal, Scamp) would recommend the Color Bar by Kendra Scott experience!

    OHM Beads is MAD | The Alice in Wonderland Collection

    “When I used to read fairy tales, I fancied that kind of thing never happened, and now here I am in the middle of one!” 

    – Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland – Chapter 4

    Happy Saturday! I hope you and your loved ones are staying safe, during this outbreak. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. I hope this blog post adds a smile into your day!

    I am excited to announce a simply MAD new collection from OHM Beads: the Alice in Wonderland collection! It will be releasing on April 1st, 2020. This collection is inspired by Lewis Carrol’s, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. It features 9 new beads, 3 of which are made of Looking-Glass…oops, I mean OHM glass.

    A special thank you to OHM Beads for sending me these beads to review and design with. What a dream come true…not only to have this collection coming out, but to be gifted them! Thank you to the bead community, as well. I would not have these opportunities without your support. <3

    In this blog post, I will be sharing a bracelet design and an overview of the beads and their price points. Also, stay tuned for my OHM Alice in Wonderland YouTube video. This video will take a closer look at the beads, as well as share some clips from a “Mad Tea Party” that Nichol (@MyPandoraCharmedLife) and I attended at the Ivy Team Room in New Mexico.

    Speaking of Nichol, she recently posted a video that we filmed together! If you’d like to see our first impressions and us unboxing the OHM Alice in Wonderland collection, CLICK HERE or watch down below:

    Video from @MyPandoraCharmedLife Youtube Channel.

    “Curiouser and curiouser!” cried Alice (she was so much surprised, that for the moment she quite forgot how to speak good English). 

    – Alice in Wonderland – Chapter 2

    When it came to designing my bracelet, I decided to incorporate all 9 beads on my silver OHM Twisted Bangle. Usually, this would be too many beads, for a bangle. However, my bangle is a size small and on the looser side. My wrist measurements is about 14.5 cm and I find the size small bangle allows more space for beads, but still provides a comfortable fit!

    I may ultimately decide to do a layered bangle or OHM Whip Bracelet stack, with this collection, but it was fun to pair all the beads together. I would love to see an “Alice Blue” or lavender OHM Whip bracelet release!

    It was all very well to say “Drink me,” but the wise little Alice was not going to do that in a hurry. “No, I’ll look first,” she said, “and see whether it’s marked ‘poison’ or not.” 

    – Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, Chapter 1

    For this bracelet design, I added a few more beads, to go with the wonderland theme.

    I chose to add OHM Pretty Tea Pot and OHM Pretty Tea Cup, (which pair with the OHM Eat Me and OHM Drink Me dangles). These tea themed beads are a perfect representation of the Mad Tea Party scene from the book! I love the floral detailing on both.

    I also added the OHM BOTM Tea Bag dangle (paired after OHM Painting the Roses Red). If you’d like to see a video, taking a closer look at the OHM Tea Bag, CLICK HERE.

    I also added the OHM Milky glass bead (paired beside, OHM Mad Hat). Tea with milk or cream…such a must! I also added my OHM Woodsy spacers to the bangle, as well. A representation of the woods that Alice wonders though, trying to find her way out of Wonderland.

    “Well! I’ve often seen a cat without a grin,” thought Alice; “but a grin without a cat! It’s the most curious thing I ever saw in all my life!”

    Now, it is time to share a closer look at the 9 beads from the, OHM Alice in Wonderland collection. All these photos below are courtesy of OHM Beads, minus the last photo.

    OHM White Rabbit

    “The Duchess! The Duchess! Oh my dear paws! Oh my fur and whiskers! She’ll get me executed, as sure as ferrets are ferrets!” 

    Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland Chapter 4

    OHM White Rabbit is magical, but running quite late for an important date! It has a thin, clear glass detailing surrounding a pure solid white core and magical bits of glittering sparkle! This bead retails for $60 US.

    OHM Saganistute

    The word “saganistute” appears to be a portmanteau for “sage” and “astute”. We love that word here at OHM; so as part of our own “Alice in Wonderland” series, we proudly present our new glass bead entitled, Saganistute. sage in classical philosophy, means “someone who has attained wisdom” or someone who lives “according to an ideal that transcends that everyday”. Astute describes one having “mental sharpness and perception”.

    Brilliantly, this creations transcends the everyday, and if you look astutely, you will find sage advice in the sprinkle of sparking magic wafting though the twilight sky and alluring depths of the wonderland around you. Saganistute: “a wise person of poetry and vision.” That’s you!

    OHM Saganistute is whimsical! I love the purple shade of colour mixing with sparkle and magic. It pairs beautifully with OHM Gallymoggers (pictured below). This bead will retail for $60 US.

    OHM Gallymoggers

    OHM’s GALLYMOGGERS is a part of our Alice in Wonderland series. Look closely at and you’ll see splashes of euphoric cream in bubbles of delirious blue tea or perhaps you’ll see only the white teeth of the Cheshire Cat as the rest him fades into a transparent dream. Maybe you’ll see Alice’s blue-and-white dress as she tumbles down the rabbit hole into a realm of wonder. Once you wear our GALLYMOGGERS bead, you’ll believe six impossible things before breakfast!

    – OHM Beads

    OHM Gallmoggers is the last glass bead in the OHM Alice in Wonderland Collection. It will retail for $60 US and is that perfect “Alice Blue”. It is a magical reference to Alice’s blue and white dress.

    OHM Who Are You

    “Who are you?” said the Caterpillar.

    This was not an encouraging opening for a conversation. Alice replied, rather shyly, “I—I hardly know, Sir, just at present—at least I know who I was when I got up this morning, but I think I must have been changed several times since then.”

    “What do you mean by that?” said the Caterpillar, sternly. “Explain yourself!”

    “I can’t explain myself, I’m afraid, Sir,” said Alice, “because I am not myself, you see.” 

    —Alice in Wonderland – Chapter 5

    The OHM Who Are You silver bead is packed with detail! It captures every detail of a wonderland mushroom. It also shows evidence of the Caterpillar enjoying too much of his hookah (love those droopy “ears”/antennas). From every angle, there is something to appreciate. He will retail for $60 US.

    OHM Mad Time

    “In that direction,” the Cat said, waving its right paw round, “lives a Hatter: and in that direction,” waving the other paw, “lives a March Hare. Visit either you like: they’re both mad.”

    “But I don’t want to go among mad people,” Alice remarked.

    “Oh, you ca’n’t help that,” said the Cat: “we’re all mad here. I’m mad. You’re mad.”

    “How do you know I’m mad?” said Alice.

    “You must be,” said the Cat, “or you wouldn’t have come here.”

    Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, Chapter 6,

    OHM Mad Time is one of my favourite silver beads (if I had to pick). I love that we see the Cheshire Cat’s eyes and toothy grin. I also love that it resembles the White Rabbit’s pocket watch. Time is quite an interesting theme in Wonderland and I love the OHM Beads did a reference to it! I also love the back detailing that says: “We’re all mad here”. This bead can be threaded through the core or the little bale detail, on the top. It will retail for $65 US.

    OHM Mad Hat

    “Take some more tea,” the March Hare said to Alice, very earnestly.

    “I’ve had nothing yet,” Alice replied in an offended tone: “so I ca’n’t take more.”

    “You mean you ca’n’t take less,” said the Hatter: “It’s very easy to take more than nothing.”

    Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, Chapter 7

    My other favourite silver bead is the OHM Mad Hat. It is inspired by the one and only Mad Hatter! This silver bead has simply MAD details: a peacock feather, signs of age and wear and a saucer like base. It is truly a must for any Wonderland fan! This bead will retail for $60 US.

    “I suppose I ought to eat or drink something or other; but the great question is ‘What?’”

    Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, Chapter 4

    OHM Eat Me & OHM Drink Me

    OHM Drink Me and the OHM EAT ME beads look like they are straight out of wonderland! I love how they are crumpled slightly and have small tears…so realistic. They are very light weight and with a small bale, they are easy to squeeze onto a bracelet design! Separately, they retail for $30 US each.

    OHM Painting the Roses Red

    A large rose-tree stood near the entrance of the garden: the roses growing on it were white, but there were three gardeners at it, busily painting them red.

    – Alice in Wonderland

    The OHM Painting the Roses Red bead is heart shaped. The Queen of Hearts would be very pleased, with this reference to her! It has the option to be worn as a bead or pendant. Some of my favourite details are the “painted” red enamel roses, followed by the beautiful vines and branch detailing. This bead will retail for $65 US.
