Pandora releases their Cinderella 70th Anniversary Capsule Collection | Disney x Pandora

I hope everyone is staying safe and healthy during this time, while enjoying the Autumn season! Today, an enchanting new capsule collection released from Pandora:

As Disney Cinderella celebrates her 70th birthday this year, Pandora and Disney partnered to create a new, sparkling ten-piece capsule collection inspired by the iconic princess.

– Pandora

I am excited to share this capsule collection with you, as well as celebrate Disney Cinderella’s 70th Anniversary! So, make sure to grab a delicious cup of tea and let’s begin!

* Disney x Pandora Cinderella Capsule Collection Photos are provided by Pandora *

The Capsule Collection:

Pandora’s design team worked with a Disney Princess Specialist to ensure every piece of jewellery perfectly reflects the beloved fairytale. Each hand-finished pieces are inspired by Disney Cinderella’s journey and feature beloved characters and themes from the film.

Tapping into beloved characters and themes from the film, the designers carefully created pieces inspired by Disney Cinderella’s enchanting journey.

It is very hard for me to pick a favourite from this collection. As many of you know, I am a huge Disney Cinderella lover. In fact, my miniature poodle name (Ella) was inspired by Cinderella herself!

I have two Cinderella themed Pandora Bracelets already and I think it is safe to say that I will be starting a third! I love every single one of these charms! I also love the new earrings, necklace and ring. They have such intricate and whimsical details.

The Bracelet:

I love that Pandora made the Pumpkin Coach into a clasp! I am currently debating if I should change my Ella themed bracelet from my Disney Parks Pandora Moments Bracelet for this one! It is so beautiful.

The Charms:

This dangle reminds me of my guinea pigs and Ella. I am currently debating whether it should go on my Ella themed Pandora Bracelet or add it to a new bracelet design. I will keep you guys posted!

I love openwork charms and this one has the clock tower on the back!

It is so lovely to see little Suzy and a sewing themed charm from Pandora. I have wanted a sewing charm for YEARS! As many of you know, my background is in Fashion Design and I have always been sad that Pandora never released a sewing charm into their Hobby charms. It is finally here and it could not be more adorable or magical! I love this scene from the movie.

The scene where the Fairy-Godmother transforms Cinderella’s torn dress into an enchanting ballgown is iconic and a beloved magical moment! I love how Pandora added blue cubic zirconia’s to represent the Fairy-Godmother’s magic!

If I had to pick a favourite Disney character, it would have to be Gus (Gus Gus). He is so funny and sweet. I love how Pandora added his hat with green enamel detailing. He also has the cutest little expression on his face!

Pandora updated the two-tone 14 ct. gold version of the Carriage charm into an enchanting Pandora Rose version! It looks so feminine and romantic. It will pair beautifully with the Disney Parks Cinderella Coach Charm.

The Earrings, Necklace and Ring:

And that concludes this blog post! I would like to thank Pandora for sharing these photos with me! I am so excited to shop this collection! I currently have a few pieces on hold at my local Pandora store. Will you be purchasing anything from this enchanting collection? Please let me know, down below!

Thank you so much for reading! I hope you have a wonderful day.

Halloween Bracelet | Ogerbeads & Corner 35

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

In today’s blog post, I am sharing a look at another Halloween themed bracelet. This bracelet is primarily Ogerbeads, but has a spooky touch of Corner 35. I really love how this bracelet design turned out, but I do have a sad story: I lost this bracelet just over a week ago. But more on that later!

If you would like to see what beads and bangle I used to create this design…make sure to grab a delicious cup of tea and let’s get started!

This post contains gifted items.

The Beads:

The first three beads I have to share with you are some of my favourite Murano glass beads from Ogerbeads. As my centrepiece bead, I have Snowdust Confetti. I love the dotted details and golden sparkle. It reminds me of a cold Halloween Night! Snowdust Confetti is included in the 3=2 promotion from Ogerbeads.

Further spread out from Snowdust Confetti, I have two Snowdust Baroque Festival beads. Both the small core and retiring universal core (3=2 deal) size options are on sale. I love the golden swirls on this bead. It adds a hint of magic and chilling breeze!

To the left of Snowdust Confetti, I have my favourite sterling silver bead from Ogerbeads: Bewitched. You may remember me featuring this bead on last year’s Halloween bracelets YouTube video:

The Bewitched bead is part of Ogerbeads 5PlusDeal (receive a 6th bead free when you order 5). It has so many “spooktacular” details including a menacing grin, witches hat, cobwebs and a spider.

To the right of Snowdust Confetti, we have the cutest spooky friend: Wannabe Ghost by Corner 35.

I love designer Wendy’s description of him:

It looks like a ghost and it acts like one. But if you look closely, you can see his tiny feet sticking out! His arms are ready to grab and terrify you. Aren’t you scared?

Wendy Verkooijen

Isn’t he so cute and fun? Those feet on the bottom are so adorable!

This sterling silver bead is compatible with all major interchangeable bracelet systems.

Moving along, I also have two sterling silver beads from Ogerbeads. They are opposite sides of the bangle. They are Perspective and Universe. They are also included in the 5PlusDeal.

For bangle stoppers, I added two Black Widow Stoppers from Ogerbeads, also included in the 5PlusDeal.

The Bracelet:

Lastly I added the stoppers and beads onto my Ogerbeads Peacock Bangle. If you would like more information about this bangle, I do have a blog post and a Youtube Video:

As mentioned earlier, I lost this bangle bracelet just over a week ago. I was out for the entire day. It was when I got home that night, that I realized the bracelet was missing. I was shocked and heartbroken!

The next day, I tried to retrace my steps. Unfortunately, I was unsuccessful at finding it.

How did I manage to loose it? I believe the bangle fell off my wrist on my morning walk with my miniature poodle, Ella. I usually put the handle part of her leash, on my wrist. I hold the rest of the leash in my hand.

Since this bangle is quite flexible, I am confident that part pulled onto the open bangle design (as Ella pulled on the leash) and that expanded it. It would only be a matter of minutes before it would fall off. And since I was already wearing an additional bracelet and had the leash on my wrist, I did not notice it falling.

As some of you know, it is so heartbreaking when you loose a jewellery item, but I like to think that someone found it, who needed a smile in their day. It makes me happy to think someone is wearing it and loving it. And the silver lining is that these beads are currently still available. I will be able to replace them, over time.

I will need to be more cautious with open bangle designs, moving forward. I won’t be wearing them on walks with Ella, that is for sure! It was a good lesson learned.

Have you ever lost a bracelet or jewellery piece? Were you able to find it?

And that concludes today’s blog post! If you would like to see my other Halloween bracelet designs, I have Youtube videos of my Pandora Halloween Bracelet, as well as my OHM Beads Halloween Bracelet.

Thank you so much for reading! I hope you have a wonderful day.

I am so happy to see another two tone charm has been added to the Pandora 20th Anniversary collection! I am excited to add this charm into my collection, as I do not have the original. I do have a few charms that are similar to the Swirl charm however, including one of my first Pandora charms, the Rose Leaf style 790136. I purchased two of these charms and I can see myself wanting to pair them with the Limited Edition Swirl Charm!

Celebrate #Pandora20 with me:

Each month, I celebrate Pandora’s 20th anniversary by sharing a special charm in my personal Pandora collection. For this month, I am telling the story behind two charms: the Witch and the Hocus Pocus Dangle Charm. I have them on my Halloween themed Pandora Bracelet:

Each charm on my Halloween themed bracelet represents a special childhood memory or favourite halloween tradition or activity. The main colours on this bracelet are oxidized silver, silver, orange and black. It has a mixture of vintage Pandora charms and new charms.

My Story behind the Witch and Hocus Pocus Charms:

Both the Witch and Hocus Pocus dangle charm represent my best friend, Tiara and our favourite Halloween movies: Hocus Pocus and Halloween Town. Each year, we cannot wait to enjoy some delicious Pumpkin Chai lattes and spending an afternoon watching movies together.

I paired these two charms together, since the stories behind them are the same. I also think they look so cute together!

I have created a Youtube video to more personally tell you the story behind these two charms! You can watch it HERE or down below:

The Details…

The Witch Charm

The Witch charm is a sterling silver charm that features a witch in flight, on her broomstick. She has a grinning smile, long pointy nose and adorable witch’s hat. She is now retired and her style number is 790544.

The Hocus Pocus Dangle Charm

The Hocus Pocus Dangle Charm was available in the US. It is a sterling silver dangle charm and has cubic zirconia accents, with orange and black enamel detailing. It features a witch’s hat, bats and the inscription: Hocus Pocus. The style number is ENG792017CZ_10.

Here are photos of other charms on my
Pandora Halloween themed bracelet:

Skeleton Girl Charm is so cute! I have her as the centrepiece on this year’s design. She has heart-shaped eyes and an upside down heart, as her nose. I also love how her lower body dangles, like she is dancing! She came out in this year’s Autumn Collection.

I am a huge fan of the Nightmare Before Christmas and couldn’t resist adding the new Disney Nightmare Before Christmas Double Dangle Charm. He goes perfectly with my Disney Parks Exclusive Jack and Sally charm.

I also have the new Disney Parks Exclusive charm, Halloween Mickey charm. My husband and I love visiting Disneyland during Halloween time! We love taking a photo in-front of the giant pumpkin Mickey. This was a must-have for me!

And that concludes this blog post! I would like to thank Pandora for the opportunity to be a part of their 20th Anniversary celebration! I am so excited to share exclusive Pandora 20 content and moments with you, over the next 2 months! Pandora will be providing me with 3 of the 12 anniversary charms, in this celebration.

Thank you so much for reading! I hope you have a wonderful day.

Faunas of the Fall | Lili Tae X Moress Collection

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

In today’s blog and video post, I am sharing a look at some of the pieces available in Moress‘ new collection: Faunas of the Fall. This is a collaborative project where Moress teamed up with illustrator designer, Lili Tae. Together, they took her 2D illustrations and transformed them into 3D charms.

A special thank you to Moress for sending me these pieces to review, as well to each and every one of you. I do not have these opportunities with your love and support.

So, if you are ready…make sure to grab a cup of tea…and let me share with you this beautiful new collection!

Faunas of the Fall

Faunas of the Fall is a 14 piece collection. 13 of the pieces are charms, made of sterling silver. The other piece is a Japanese Silk Lili Tae Scarf.

I received 4 charms and the scarf to review. You can watch my review video HERE, or down below:

I received the following charms to review: Dewie, Sunny Bunny, Purring Dahlia and Cosmo Canary.

Each charm comes with their own illustration card. On the back of each card, you will find the story of the forest creature.

I decided to style my charms on my Moress Heritage Bangle No. 52 and added my Moress Heritage Bead No. 593 as the centrepiece.

What do you think of this new collection? Please let me know, down below!

I love that Pandora included a clip charm in the Pandora 20 Anniversary collection. A Pandora Clip is a necessity on all of my Pandora Moments bracelets. They provide function, balance and style!

I love the message behind the Limited Edition Simple Heart Clip Charm representing “firsts”. For me, this charm will represent the first time I discovered Pandora, and how much creativity, community and style it has brought me!

Each month, I celebrate Pandora’s 20th anniversary by sharing a special charm in my personal Pandora collection. For this month, I am telling the story behind my Forest Trinity Charm. I have it on my “Enchanted Forest” themed Pandora Bracelet:

My “Enchanted Forest” bracelet is inspired by my love of forests, hiking and fairytales. The main colours on this bracelet are Pandora Rose, silver, gold and forest green. It has a mixture of vintage Pandora charms, as well as some charms from Pandora 2019 Autumn Collection.

My Forest Trinity Charm can be found on the left section of the bracelet, beside the Mystery Moss two tone Pandora charm.

My Story behind the Forest Trinity Charm:

The Forest Trinity charm represents a special trip my mother took to come visit my husband and I. We moved across the country and it had been a year since we last saw her. During her visit, we had so many adventures! Some of the most memorable adventures were hiking in the mountains, and exploring the beautiful sights and sounds. I had to add the Forest Trinity charm to my collection to represent this special time together.

The charm features three dangles: a bird, leaf and peridot. And since my mother, husband and I were a trio…I couldn’t think of a more perfect charm!

I have created a Youtube video to more personally tell you the story behind the Forest Trinity Charm! You can watch it HERE or down below:

The Details…

The Forest Trinity Charm

The Forest Trinity charm is a sterling silver dangle charm that features a green peridot gemstone paired with a bird and leaf. It is now retired and the style number is 791214PE. It has a thin silver bale.

The Forest Trinity charm is from the Autumn 2013 Pandora collection.

I am so excited to share exclusive Pandora 20 content and moments with you, over the next 3 months! Pandora will be providing me with 3 of the 12 anniversary charms, in this celebration.

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!

This year, Pandora continues to celebrate their 20th Anniversary of the Pandora Moments charm bracelet. This charm bracelet was first released in 2000. To celebrate 20 years of collecting, Pandora is going through their archives and bringing back a vintage charm every month in 2020. All 12 of the charms will be limited-edition. Each charm will be available only until it has sold out, which makes all 12 charms an absolute must for a Pandora collector!

I am so excited to continue celebrating Pandora‘s special milestone! To celebrate Pandora’s anniversary, each month, I share a special story behind a charm in my collection, and reveal what the limited-edition Pandora 20 Charm is!

So, make sure to grab a cup of iced tea…and let me share with you what this month’s charm is!

*please note that these charms are very limited. Until supplies last. 

The Limited Edition Love Dice Charm looks similar to the original design of the I Love You charm. I love collecting two tone charms and I have missed seeing new two tone charms release in Pandora’s recent collections. It is wonderful to see a second two tone charm in the Pandora 20 Anniversary charm collection!

For me, the Love Dice message is a wonderful reminder to take a chance on love, after all…that is how I met my husband! It also has a lovely nod to my husband and I’s love of board games.

Celebrate #Pandora20 with me:

Each month, I celebrate Pandora’s 20th anniversary by sharing a special charm in my personal Pandora collection. For this month, I am telling the story behind my Princess and the Pea Charm. I have it on my “Life is a Fairytale (with you)” themed Pandora Bracelet:

“My Life is a Fairytale (with you)” bracelet is inspired by my husband and I. I think of it as an extension to my “Something Blue” wedding themed Pandora Bracelet. Each charm on this bracelet represents our love story and my love of fairytales. The colours on it are pink, gold and white. These were our wedding day colours!

In the centre of the bracelet, I have the Prince Character Charm and the Princess Character Charm on opposite sides of the Pink Princess Heart Charm (retired).

My Princess and the Pea charm can be found on the right section of the bracelet, beside the Mr. and Mrs Wedding Couple charm (retired) and a White Mystic Gold Pandora Murano glass charm.

My Story behind the Princess and the Pea Pandora Charm:

The Princess and the Pea charm represents my love of reading fairytales and fantasy books. Ever since I was a little girl, I loved to read fantasy and fairytale books. As a child, I would stay up late reading a good book and enjoying a delicious cup of tea!

Five Fantasy books I loved as a teenager were:

  1. Summers at Castle Auborn by Sharon Shinn (still my favourite book)
  2. The Never-Ending Story by Michael Ende
  3. The Chronicles of Faerie series by O.R Melling
  4. The Lord of the Rings series by J.R.R Tolkien

What were some of your favourite books, as a child or teenager?

I have created a Youtube video to more personally tell you the story behind the Princess and the Pea Charm, as well as a closer look at my “Life is a Fairytale (with you) bracelet! You can watch it HERE or down below:

The Details…

The Princess and the Pea Charm

The Princess and the Pea charm is a two tone charm in the shape of a royal bed with mattresses piled high! It also has rounded bed legs and a royal canopy. Atop the royal canopy rests a 14 ct. gold crown, which represents the Princess. There are also two 14 ct. gold “peas” that are hidden between the layers of mattresses, one on each side of the charm.

On the bottom of the charm, the hallmarks 925 and ALE are found:

This threaded charm is part of the Hans Christian Andersen Pandora collection. This three piece collection released in celebration of Andersen’s 200th Anniversary. Along with the Princess and the Pea charm, it also had the Ugly Duckling and the Top Hat.

And that concludes this blog post! I would like to thank Pandora for the opportunity to be a part of their 20th Anniversary celebration! I am so excited to share exclusive Pandora 20 content and moments with you, over the next 4 months! Pandora will be providing me with 3 of the 12 anniversary charms, in this celebration.

Thank you so much for reading! I hope you have a wonderful day. Take care, stay healthy and spread love, especially during this time. <3

The Beads:

OHMistry Project | Kickin’ Peaches

I am so excited that OHM Beads and Nichol Orozco of @MyPrettyCharmedLife are re-launching KICKIN’ PEACHES in September! This is a non-limited edition version of the original OHMistry Project design. I might be biased because Nichol is my best friend, but I LOVE this bead. I am delighted that more collectors will have the opportunity to add her into their collections. Kickin’ Peaches is AWESOME!

The inspiration behind Kickin’ Peaches:

Nichol believes everyone has an inner ninja. She had always wanted a female ninja bead but never found one. Until now… thanks to a collaboration with OHM Beads she can now introduce KICKIN’ PEACHES – the baddest female ninja out there! KICKIN’ PEACHES is a state of mind. It is about setting a goal and not letting anything get in your way as you accomplish it at the highest level possible! We are faced with obstacles that want to slow us down. When that happens – get on your ninja suit, put on your game face, and get ready to kick some major peach! Representing all the bad a$$ women out there that don’t let anything get in their way!

KICKIN’ PEACHES reminds us we can learn from and embrace our failures and get back up even stronger. Whatever goals you set for yourself, no matter how big or small – make sure you are KICKIN’ PEACHES!

Back in May, I created a special video about OHM Kickin’ Peaches. You can watch it here:

OHM STUDIO | Oak Wood-Ent

As many of you know, the OHM Wood-Ent is one of my favourite beads! He reminds me of myself and how I feel when I am in the great outdoors! You can imagine how excited I was when I saw the new OHM Studio Project: OHM OAK WOOD-ENT!

The OHM Oak Wood-Ent follows a similar design to the original Wood-Ent, but has the addition of beautiful oak leaf wings. He also reminds me of my OHM TOGETHER Wood-Ent with Butterfly wings. I cannot wait to see this bead in-person!

REGIONAL | OHM in EUROPE

The last bead in the September release is OHM UNICORN POOP. This is an OHM glass bead that features a rainbow colour theme with white stripes.

The name of this bead makes me laugh and reminds me of funny GIFs and cartoons I have seen with unicorns. It add a great pop of colour and cheer, to any bracelet.

And that concludes today’s preview! Stay tuned for a review video. Which beads are your favourites from this release?

I hope you all have a wonderful rest of your day! Stay safe.
