Jewel Box Friday - Pandora Bracelets

I've been tossing around the idea of doing a weekly post about jewelry. My DD makes costume jewelry, sometimes with semi precious stones and sometimes with gold and/or silver. She always coming up with interesting pieces. And of course, I'm always willing to "model" and sometimes buy the jewelry.

The latest creations are her version of the Pandora Bracelet. She and I have spotted the bead laden bracelets on celebrities (pictured in magazines). Everyone is wearing them. Here are few that are in my jewelry box.

The beads can be purchased at Fire Mountain Gems or Oriental Trading Company. Below are two more one for me and the other for me DS.

So, what do you think about Pandora Bracelets?


  1. The bracelets look quite nice ... but speaking from experience ... you can lose an entire paycheck to Fire Mountain! Of course, I do have all kinds of pretty stone beads to show for it, along with findings to put them together into nice things. I just firmly believe any reference to Fire Mountain, Rio Grande ... and now Oriental should carry a warning. LOL

  2. Isn't it great to have a daughter who makes jewelry? I love the stuff my daughter makes, and, of course, she always knows what to get me for my birthday. Those are really beautiful bracelets, especially the one with the turquoise-colored beads.

  3. My husband does not let me in bead shops any more. I can be lost inside for days. I kind of go into a trance. The bracelets are lovely. Your daughter is very talented - though she shouldn't charge her mother!

    Thank you for the comments on my blog. I always enjoy your blog.

  4. I'm not very familiar with Pandora braclets (I'll Google later) but I like the ones your daughter made! I am totally interested in jewelry making too and I just recently taken some classes there were a lot of fun...unfortunately it's taken me away from my love of sewing!!! :(

  5. Those bracelets are beautiful! I'd love to see more of your daughter's work.

  6. and now Oriental should carry a warning. LOL
