Pandora Bracelet

I’ve never paid that much attention to these bracelets before, but when I saw them in St. Thomas, I guess something just clicked.  Instead of buying a different pair of earrings, or whatever on each trip, I thought, why not start a collection that can be added to throughout the year.

P5041496 Of course, the fact that there is a teapot and a teacup bead didn’t hurt either.  I’d like to see an Alice in Wonderland bracelet with the teapot, teacup, rabbit, clock and cupcake beads added to some glass and silver (or gold) beads.  I think I’m going for a tropical beach look, with my blues and soon to be added blue-greens, starfish, etc.

P5041493Can you see how cute the little teapot bead is?  The only problem is its penchant for turning upside down all the time.  I lucked out on the light blue polka dot bead.  When I visited a shop in Stockbridge, the saleslady told me that it is a retired bead and she would charge double for it.

The Pau Amarelo (Brazilian) wood bead is only joining the others until I get a leather bracelet and then it will move there with a couple of brown glass beads.

I wonder how many of you will be adding to your Pandora bracelets this spring.  There are some really pretty new beads – check it out here.

I've never heard of these, but it sure is pretty. LOVE the tea pot. I have a silver charm brsaclet that I add to each time we visit a new place. I've also got a teapot and cup & saucer on it from my daughters.

I just love my Pandora bracelet and I know you will enjoy adding to yours too. The colors you are using are just beautiful! (And how on earth, as busy as you've been, did you have time to send me a birthday card and tea? My goodness! But it is beautiful, so I send my warmest thanks to you and the wonderful Don!)

I love the teapot! I have a charm bracelet with loads of charms of things I love and places we've traveled. Yep, I have a tea pot, tea cup, etc!
