I’ve been collecting charms for my Pandora bracelet for a few years now, and although it’s not complete yet, I have a reasonable amount of cute charms that I’ve received as gifts from family and friends for birthdays or Christmasses (and a few cheeky ones I got for myself).
I’ll start with the most recent ones, I got a London bus with a cute union jack on the roof, and a cupcake with a red Minnie Mouse bow on it, because I felt like my bracelet needed a bit of colour. I’m a big Disney fan, and I live in London so it made sense to go for those two!
I have a bit of a fairytale theme going on, with a castle, a gorgeous heart with an opal (my birthstone) in the middle that my mum got me, and other girly charms like the little bow.
All of the other charms have been gifts, the Pandora bag being the most recent one, from my Grandad at Christmas. On my 18th birthday, I ended up getting two of the 18 heart charms, so I exchanged one for the adorable ghost, because my birthday is on Halloween! The theatre mask is one of my favourites, it has a happy face on one side, and a sad one on the other, with the Shakespeare quote ‘to be or not to be’ on the top. Finally, I have two non-Pandora charms, the round silver one with Swarovski crystals on it, and the treble clef, which my godmother got me.
I love how personalised Pandora bracelets can be, and I’m so grateful every time someone gets me a charm as a gift. I have quite a few on my wishlist! Do you have a Pandora bracelet?
