I wanted to write a quick update to share a few more photos of the new Asian country exclusive charms that Pandora is releasing this week. My post yesterday has a bit of background on the new pieces and what they mean/why they are significant. Here’s some close-up pictures of the hong bao and dragon charm:
The Dragon Dangle looks amazing! I really like how it’s in an S-shape; it shows off some great details with the little dragon claws and fins on it’s back. Very nice sculpting! As you can tell, the Chinese dragon looks more like a serpent than the Anglo-Saxon dragons of yore, so this is stylistically correct.
And finally a Pandora fan posted an official-style photo of all 4 charms from the Chinese New Year exclusive set (silver and gold Fortune Bag, and silver and two-tone Dragon Dangle). The two-tone dragon looks so good! I don’t usually get two-tone pieces due to the costs but I might have to make an exception for the two-tone Dragon Dangle. He just looks so much better in gold!
I’m super excited, but I wish they made these easier to get :(. I’ve been trying to find someone in China to help me get some of these but it’s been tough going. I know Leann had spent a good part of yesterday calling around to friends and family to try and get a hookup. Has anyone else out there managed to score one? If so we’d love to hear about it in the replies/Facebook comments!
