I’ve talked about the Pandora bracelet before (read: Pandora bracelets), and how much I like their product. But I wanted to share with you and touch base upon a subject that I absolutely adore:
Theme styled bracelets… I can’t tell you how much I enjoy looking at these types of charm bracelets. Bracelets with themes are very, very cool (and makes a great gift as well).
Over the past couple of years it seems like it’s really taken off. I’ve seen some really awesome themes when it comes to Pandora. It may be because Pandora has countless charms and a wide assortment of beads to choose from. But they are always updating their line and adding more and more charms to the mix. You can’t go wrong (soon they will be releasing about 50 new beads for the fall of 2009. Very exciting.)
So I thought I would share with you some of the cool themes that I’ve run across. First off, my favorite theme of them all: Halloween (anyone who knows me, knows this is true).
Let me say this, if you have the money and the desire, you can pretty much make any theme you want. Just know, it won’t be cheap (prices for charms start at $25). But the compliments you will receive on these types of bracelets are endless. Look at the picture:
Isn’t the Halloween theme just a hoot? The orange and black beads together creates a wonderful contrast. Add in some silver charms like the: Owl, Cat, Pumpkin (or Jack-O-Lantern), Ghost (I love it), Snake and even throw in the black and yellow Murano glass bead. Sweet. It really sets the whole thing off. Mix them up, get a couple of each and you’ll have a great bracelet to wear for the fall months of September through October.
Another great theme:
Murano glass hearts theme (see picture above). It’s an entire bracelet of nothing but Murano glass heart beads of all different colors. A rainbow of colors that looks wonderful with any outfit, anytime, anywhere. I simply love Murano glass and love this theme. It looks spectacular. You can’t get any better than this. Love it, love it, love it.
The next theme is sure to raise a few eyebrows: black and white theme. Really (p.s. Pandora even sells an “onyx” colored bracelet that’s perfect for this theme). Black and white is very classy and sharp. I love the yin-yang (pictured at top). Black and white makes a bold statement. It’s stylish and beautiful. Many women get into wearing black and white outfits because it’s powerful and very eye-catching. Now you have something to wear with it. This theme is a sure hit.
Just think about the charms that could go on it…
- Teddy Bear
- Love Knot
- Christmas Tree
- Tree of life
- Drum Set
- Alphabet (Spell out Christmas)
- Green and Red Murano Beads
- Little Boy Charm
- Little Girl Charm
With a Christmas theme it can open up a world of possibilities. Take a look at how cute they are…
How about an…
Pandora has an assortment of cute animals. Take a look at the list:
- Elephant (See Elephant Butt Pic Ha!)
- Pig (So freakin cute!)
- Doggie (Looks like the Target Dog!)
- Queen Bee (Extremely Popular!)
- Bear (Teddy Bear)
- Hippo (Looks like Hungry Hippo!)
- Hedgehog (Very Popular!)
- Fish (Happy Fish!)
- Oyster Shell (Hey it’s alive!)
It’s like Noah’s ark right on your wrist. So cute and cuddly.
Hawaii island theme:
Check out this awesome post I did on Hawaii island themed beads. Very, very cool.
Hundreds of themes…
There are probably hundreds of different themes you could come up with:
- Initials (get your kids and grandkids).
- A saying or words
- All hearts (Pandora makes some great heart beads).
- Color themes (all blue or all green… You get the point. Your favorite color).
- Two-tone charms (gold and silver charms mixed).
- Patriotic theme (red, white and blue charms).
- Tropical theme (blue and green beads mixed).
- Good luck theme (greens, money bag, treasure chest, shamrock clover).
- Fruit punch theme (mixed colors, purples, greens, oranges, yellows…)
- Purse theme (all the different purses).
Just look at the travel charms you could get to make a great theme:
- Treasure Chest
- Clown (Seeing a show?)
- Flowers (Tropical Paradise?)
- Sea Shell
- Pandora’s Box
- Tunnel of Love ;)
- Cake (Celebrating?)
- Cupcake (Eating bad?)
- Yin Yang (Good Karma!)
How about a…
The point is, get creative. Look at the latest Pandora catalog, get your mind spinning and your juices flowing (and pocket books open).
Pandora is so much more than a simple bracelet with charms. It’s style, elegance, character and fun.
It brings unlimited smiles.
If you create some great themes, share them. Let me know. Send me a picture. I’ll post it here. I’d love to see what people come up with. I’m sure others would too. Because with one theme, it’s sure to inspire many, many more.
