Happy Valentine’s Day!

pandora-valentine's-charms5Happy Valentine’s Day to all our readers!  Whether you’re celebrating with your sweetheart or your gal pals, it’s a time to let your loved ones know you care.  I had planned on discussing how I’ve finally completed my two-tone wedding bracelet, but my wonderful husband surprised me with a gift this morning that I was sure couldn’t be bought – somehow he found me a Pandora mug!  This mug was given out at Christmas 2011 for the fans who participated the most on the Pandora Facebook page, and I have been drooling over it ever since.  He won’t tell me how he manage to track one down, but I’m considering this a much more romantic gesture than if he had just given me a charm.  He already got me the Love of My Life bracelet set and let me open it early so it was that much more of a shock.  Such a happy surprise!  😀

Back to my original line of thought…late last year I fell back in love with my two-tone charms and bracelets, and I fell hard!  I had started a two-tone wedding necklace and while I added a charm here and there, I would hardly wear the necklace.  So I decided to switch my bracelets around and put my wedding charms on a two-tone bracelet and here is the result!  While I started the bracelet out with 7 beads, I quickly completed the entire bracelet with romance related charms, even if I have to stretch the meanings for some of them, lol.  I absolutely adore this design and wear it together with my other two-tone bracelet as I like to stack the two.  My video introducing this bracelet is posted below.  🙂

Did you get anything special from your honey?  For those still awaiting your prince charming, I hope you treat yourself to something lovely!

    My husband did very well. He suprised me with the mother of pearl pendant. The one with the carved flower and gold braided trim and the love letter bead.

      He did good! I love that one – you’ll have to get the matching ring too ;).

        Leann, just had to thank you for the wedding bracelet idea. I am very new to Pandora and to Charms Addict, but I am totally addicted and have several bracelets planned out for the future! It’s been so hard to decide which to begin first, but when I saw your wedding bracelet I knew that I had to have one that represented my wedding and my hubby and I as well! Would also like to say Congratulations! Can’t wait for you to post a picture of your completed baby bracelet. I’ve been trying to decide what to add to my bracelet that will represent my 2 grown boys. Wish They were little again!!!

      • Leann

        Aww, that’s great! Thanks so much :D. Do share a pic of your wedding bracelet if you can :).

  • Danielle

    Speaking of Valentine’s day, Perlen.com has the Language of Love charm in stock as of today. SOOO EXCITED, I can not wait to get it!!!

      Thanks for the update! I <3 Perlen ;).

  • Janet L.

    your bracelet is beautiful Leann, I am in love with the two tones as well…today hubs got me the “he loves me” charm and I’m getting ready to go have a sit and twist 😀

    • http://charmsaddict.com Leann

      Thank you so much, Janet! He did good ;). The cube was one of the first charms my hubby got me. It’s so simple and elegant. Have fun playing with your bracelet!

  • Janet L.

    P.S. Happy Valentine’s Day!

    • Janet L.

      P.S.S. the mug is awesome, he did really good, great find!

        Thanks! Coffee is going to taste extra delicious. 😀

  • Jennifer Wr

    What a thoughtful gift he found for you, Leann! Much more effort and creativity involved! 🙂 As always, I enjoyed your video explaining the meaning behind the selections on your bracelet. We don’t really celebrate Valentine’s Day, but a package I have been waiting for arrived today with the new CZ snake charm so I am considering him my surprise for today. 🙂

    • http://charmsaddict.com Leann

      Thanks, Jennifer! We ate cardboard pizza for dinner so we’re not so romantic :P. Haha, but I do love to get presents so I’ll take any excuse! Enjoy your sparkling snake, I’ve been wearing mine around, it’s so blingey ;).

      • Jennifer Wr

        I do love the snake! And I did get a Valentine’s present, after all. The silver heart that my fiancee won in the Pandora star hunt contest last December arrived today! I just realized that it is the only heart-shaped charm that I own. He keeps teasing me that he is going to wear it, so I am putting it on my bracelet quickly. 🙂

      • http://charmsaddict.com Leann

        That is perfect timing! How nice that he was playing the game for you :D.

  • Jeanne

    Thanks for the video, Leann. I love that your hubby found the mug for you! We don’t really celebrate Valentine’s Day except for cards, so no new charms to report.

    • http://charmsaddict.com Leann

      Thanks, Jeanne! I could not believe he found one! Enjoy a low-key Valentine’s, we’re not doing much tonight either :).

  • Jennifer T.

    So sweet that he put that much effort into your gift! Love the mug 🙂 and your two tone bracelet is beautiful.
    I guess all my hints paid off, I received the Lovebirds charm today! And a package from Perlen was delivered yesterday and one shipped out today so I would say this was a good week for me 🙂

    • Jennifer T.

      The Lovebirds were from my hubby, forgot to put that part in there

    • http://charmsaddict.com Leann

      Such a cute charm, I love the little heart dangle between them. That’s a great week! 😀

  • myla

    Hi Leann, I have been wanting to acquire the two-tone letters specifically for “H”. Do you have any idea where I can hunt for one???? Love the bracelet 🙂

    • http://charmsaddict.com Leann

      Hi Myla, here’s a link to Maurice Badler – they’re an authorized dealer. Hope you get one! 🙂

      • Ashley

        Hey Leann, what about an ‘A’ or an ‘R’? Any where else that still sells these two-toned letters?? Unfortunately, the place you listed to Myla doesn’t have my letters.

        Happy Valentine’s Day! You are so lucky to have gotten the mug, what a sweetheart husband you have. 😉

        My hubby and I had a romantic Valentine’s dinner the night before! Our son was at his Grandmother’s so we had a night to ourselves. My hubby got me the Love of my Life bracelet set and our son picked out the Red pave heart dangle charm. It was so cute coming from our little guy! Also, my hubby wanted to pick out one charm to add to the bracelet Love of my Life set and out of all the charms I have and all of the charms that are up at our flagship store, he ended up picking out the Gold Tunnel of Love charm that I already have! He felt so bad it was sweet though! I had to give him an A for effort, right?? 🙂 haha

      • http://charmsaddict.com Leann

        Hi Ashley, ooh those are popular letters! I haven’t seen any on the sites I usually look at but I will keep you in mind if I ever see them!

        That sounds like a wonderful Valentine’s date. I’m glad you had the opportunity to spend time with your honey! 🙂

  • pamela

    Is that an oxidized with a gold clasps in the picture? Is that something they used to sell or is it just for marketing?

    • http://charmsaddict.com Leann

      Hi Pamela, the two-tone oxidized bracelet is an older style that is retired in the US, but it is still available in some other countries. I was able to find one on Jewel First and it’s so pretty! They do ship to US.

  • becka
