Pandora Club Charm 2017 Unveiled


Pandora is previewing their new Club Charm before the release this year!  It will be launched with the rest of the Spring 2017 Collection on March 16th. Unsurprisingly, it’s a heart and features a tiny diamond and engraved with “Pandora Club” on the back.  The design is a locket and opens to show “2017” inside. I haven’t been very impressed with the Club Charms since I’m not a fan of heart motifs

I’ve missed a few Ohm Beads releases and I heartily apologize!  This article is for cataloging purposes so I can’t speak to the availability of the limited edition pieces but the regular designs are part of the main collection.

Trollbeads Tiara Collection


Trollbeads is introducing an exciting new line today with their Tiara Collection!  This is a rather niche product and is an interesting modular take on the tiara.  The tiara is a statement piece, typically reserved for formal affairs, so this collection is really targeted towards the wedding market.  The photos are courtesy of Trollbeads, please do not reproduce without crediting. This is an amazing set marked by vertical decorative spacers.  You

Pandora Valentine’s Day 2017 Collection Debut


I’ve been behind on previewing the Pandora Valentine’s Day 2017 Collection, so I’m very excited to see these new designs debut today! I’m generally not a fan of the Valentine’s Day releases from Pandora because it’s too much pink and hearts for me. But surprisingly, even though it’s the same motifs, I’m liking this collection a lot! I certainly like it more than normal and mostly it’s because of the

Trollbeads Spring 2017 Collection Preview

Pandora Chinese New Year 2017 – LE Lion Dance


Happy New Year, everyone!  I’m always astounded at how quickly the year passes by and 2016 was no exception.  This was our first holiday season where my son kind of knew what was going on so we went all out with decorations.  It was so cute watching him open all his presents, which he got doubles of since he’s got a birthday around Christmas too. Turning to the first release of the

Today is the start of the annual Pandora Christmas ornament promotion for North America!  It is free with any purchase over $125USD, while supplies last.  This year’s GWP features a present ornament in the same style as the previous 5 years – white ceramic.  From experience this is one of the promotions that runs out quick, so I would recommend getting it as soon as you can. In addition, this is the
