Easter always reminds me of egg hunting on the lawn, garden parties, and hanging out with family. With that in mind, I’m happy to present one of my completed bracelets – Pandora’s Garden. While it’s not strictly Easter themed, the garden is what reminds me most about this holiday and with spring just arriving on our doorsteps. For this bracelet, I was inspired by a lovely lady I met on the Pandora cruise last year and so I decided to use all the Flowers for You Muranos in the collection, and there are 9 lovely shades. Only 2 of the 9 has been retired (black with yellow flowers for you and yellow flowers for you), but that’s not bad so these must sell pretty well. This is my heaviest Murano bracelet and so I had to go up a size to 7.9″ to accommodate all the glass beads.
The design is relatively simple; the bead features almost opaque glass in various colors with a flower pattern in a lighter shade on top. Not to be confused with the Flowers Murano Collection, these flower petals are a bit rounder and the glass less transparent. This collection is my favorite of all the Muranos since I love flower themed charms; and in fact the green flowers for you Murano was my very first glass bead from Pandora. All the colors from this set creates a beautiful rainbow.
Alternating between the glass beads are flora, fauna, and other items that can be found in a garden. There are a number of flower charms, and I picked the wildflower walk openwork to cover the end thread, the two-tone lazy daisy clips, rose, and the forever bloom dangle. The little creatures I choose are the porcupine, bunny, ladybug, butterflies, and bird. I cannot resist the Pandora animal charms which is partially the reason I came up with this garden themed bracelet. To top off the bracelet are the garden hat dangle and the elf or as I like to call him the garden gnome. The colorful nature of this bracelet makes me so happy. :)
How are you celebrating Easter this beautiful Sunday?
