Last week, I published a new YouTube video: My Harry Potter themed Pandora Bracelet. You might remember the blog post I did…well, this is an extension of that post, as well as showing how I styled my bracelet with a Harry Potter inspired outfit! You can watch the video, HERE.
In today’s blog post, I am sharing some photos of my, Harry Potter x Pandora bracelet! I just finished filming a video about it and I am looking forward to editing it. Whenever I film, I always make sure to take photos, as well! That way, everything is cohesive and reflects well together.
I quickly edited these photos and I am excited to give you a quick look at the design I came up with!
In the photo above, you’ll see a nice close up of the openwork charm: Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. This retails for $50 CAD and I have to tell you: I was shocked by the price point! I was expecting it to be around $80-100 CAD. When I received it in the mail from Gold-N-Memories Pandora, I could not get over the amount of detail on it! I also love that the back of the charm features the school’s crest and it is frame with dainty star details. Even without cubic zirconia, it is truly magical (and probably why it isn’t in the price range I was expecting to pay).
Beside that charm, heading over to the right, I also have Ogerbeads, Fire Fragments 2.0. It really makes me think of Harry Potter and almost resembles a lightning bolt! It contains pure magic, with touches of cubic zirconia and glitter and I cannot wait to edit the video, so you can see how it sparkles!
Heading over to the left of the Hogwarts charm, we have the Gryffindor Dangle Charm, which is my house! Both on Pottermore and at Warner Bros. Studio’s “Sorting Hat”, I was sorted into the Gryffindor house. So was my husband!
I love this dangle for a number of different reasons:
1. It has SO much detail, all over. This is something I love to see on any charm or bead.
2. It has magical, red cubic zirconia stars that just twinkle when they catch the light.
3. The bail detail reminds me of that old, classic Pandora look! I find that Pandora (recently) has been doing more plainer bails and it is sooo refreshing and lovely to see some more creativity to them.
4. The beautiful inscriptions on the bead: Gryffindor, Harry Potter and the three characteristics of Gryffindors: courage, determination, bravery.
Beside this Pandora charm, I have Ogerbeads Red/Green Moonlight Murano. The yellow and red detailing remind me of Gryffindor and the fact that it glows in the dark…and turns into a green colour, is just totally Harry Potter vibes!
Moving along, we have the first charm I ordered from the Harry Potter x Pandora release: Dobby the House Elf Charm. He is my favourite Harry Potter character besides, Professor Snape. I just adore him and every time I read or watch about what happens to him, I cry so hard. It breaks my heart! He is just the sweetest and while the charm is a bit too cartoony, for my liking…I love him just the same and I could NOT…not get him.
I love his wide-open smile and his cute little ears. His feet are a bit too plain for my liking, but I just adore that he is holding a little white sock behind him. That part is soo detailed and brings tears to my eyes.
His garment has cute draped details and I love the black enamel button eyes. It’s lovely to see those little enamel accents.
Over to the left of Dobby, you will spot the Black/Green Moonlight Murano from Ogerbeads. This also glows-in-the-dark and turns into a green colour, much like my other moonlight Murano shown earlier.
And there you have it! That is my Harry Potter themed charm bracelet! I have this bracelet on my Pandora Open Bangle, in case you were curious.
I would love to know what you think of my design and stay tuned for a video, coming out within the next few weeks.
ALSO: make sure to check out, Aali | Pandorably Charmed‘s video on her Harry Potter themed bracelet. She styled it on a Pandora Moments snake chain bracelet and added some really cute charms to go with it. I especially love the car charm, she picked out. So clever! You can watch her video, HERE.
With Valentines Day just around the corner, I recently posted a new Valentines Day bracelet design, as well as a new YouTube video! In this video, I share my review on two new beads from Ogerbeads Valentine’s Day collection: Valentino (a murano glass bead with cubic zirconia) and Love Game (a silver oxidized bead).
In the video, you will see how I styled these two Ogerbeads beads on my Valentines Day themed Pandora Bracelet. I love how this year’s bracelet design turned out…it’s so feminine and pink! Two of my favourite things about Valentines.
Speaking of which: all of Ogerbeads newer collections are universal core, which means they fit on the most popular charm bracelet companies (Pandora, Trollbeads, Ohm Beads, etc.) I often get asked this question, as well as about Ogerbeads small core beads and what they can fit on. I did make a YouTube video answering these questions (and more). You can find it, HERE.
I really love mixing Ogerbeads with my Pandora jewellery items. Muranos have always been one of my most favourite charms/beads and I am sad to see that Pandora is bringing out very little, if not anything. Ogerbeads has become an enchanting new addition to my Pandora bracelets and they truly stand out. Like I always say, they are pure magic in a bead!
How do you feel about mixing jewellery charm/bead brands?
And that is it for this blog post! I would love to know how you plan on spending your February 14th, 2020, this year! I most likely will be cuddling up to my little Ella and the guineas with a delicious cup of tea! Cheers!
Playing a bit of catch up with some recent YouTube videos I uploaded on my channel recently…or should I say, last year?! I cannot believe we are already into 2020!!!
In this video, I share how I store my Pandora Jewellery, as well as my Ohm Beads, Ogerbeads, Trollbeads and Alex and Ani pieces. I also share an overview of my entire collection, with you! This has been requested by so many of you, but I’m always hesitant about filming this type of video. I have a huge collection and I know I’m very blessed to have such special and meaningful pieces. Each one tells a story or reflects a special loved one or memory. I really love that about charm bracelets!!!
Anyway! Here is where you can watch the video:
Now, I’ll share some information on where you can find these jewellery storage options, should you be curious!
The first is the jewellery box I picked up in November by Tuscan Designs. I found it at Homesense/Winners for $149. Since this is a store that only has limited stock, there is a very similar option on Wayfair by a brand called, Morelle Company. The style is called, Sophia Leather Jewellery Keepsake Box. This may be the only difference as my jewellery box is a faux leather.
Inside this jewellery box, I added a ring tray that I found on Amazon. In the video, I placed it in the middle layer, but I have since moved it to the top layer, below the glass section. You can shop it HERE.
The last item is my grey, Less Play Ohm Play Tray! If the grey isn’t your thing, they have a quite a few colour options to choose from. I hope that one day soon, Ohm Beads will also come out with a light pink colour too (they currently have a hot pink one though)! If you would like to order the tray (and haven’t placed an Ohm Beads Order before), feel free to use my referral link to save 11% off your order, HERE.
In this video, I share the newest winter collection from Ogerbeads: the Luxury Collection. It has royalty influence with that classic touch of Ogerbeads magic! I review 4 out of the 8 muranos from the collection, as well as a silver bead.
You can view the entire Ogerbeads Luxury Winter Collection here!
Ogerbeads sent 5 beads from their 10 bead release, for me to review for you. All opinions and thoughts are 100% my own. A huge thank you for your love and support. I would not have opportunities to collaborate with brands I love…if it were not for each and every single one of you. You make my dreams come true!
In this video, I share my Ogerbeads collection with you, as well as providing an overview of the different silver beads and murano glass beads that Ogerbeads creates! I will also demonstrate the differences between small and universal core beads, as well as showing you which Pandora bracelets, Trollbeads bracelets and Ohm Beads bracelets will fit both small and universal core beads from Ogerbeads. I also share some of my favourite Ogerbeads designs with you! I hope you enjoy this video!
