Since I started covering byBiehl last fall, I’ve slowly been collecting charms, or pods, for my byBiehl bracelets. Their flat leather bracelets are ideal for the summertime and I’ve been wanting to showcase them for a while now. They’ve got a mix of finishes including silver, oxidized, gold, and most recently rose gold. I’m rather drawn to their silver and oxidized designs and they blend well together. The pods are well crafted and hefty making for interesting and high quality pieces.
I started off with Little Friend to represent my fur baby and it’s close to my heart; it’s dual toned with a black oxidized background and two silver paws raised in relief. I picked Pebbles because it has such great texture and asymmetry with the little rocks varying in size and placement. Daisy is another dual tone pod with silver leaves and a black disc center that resembles crystals but is just oxidized dots.
I got two cosmic themed pods, one called Night Fever Black and Stars which are both rhodium plated charms. Night Fever Black has three stars – one jeweled with crystals and two high-polished. Stars is an openworks pod and star cutouts all over the matte pod. My absolute favorite so far is the long named Eyes-On-the-Stars-Feet-On-the-Ground, a two-piece from the Camille Kaasby-Wang collection. It’s another design with star motifs, the North Star on one pod and a smaller star on the other, connected together with two chains.
The other pods on these bracelets include the byBiehl Inspirational Charity Pod and the Forget-Me-Not from the spring promotion (still available). I’m a fan of this brand and for more details on their concept, check out my byBiehl Introduction. The pods are rather expensive compared to other charms, but the amount of metal used and quality make up for it, plus you only need a couple to wear on the bracelet. My recommended retailer is Perlen, which offers free international shipping. Are you intrigued by this brand?
