Persona Fall 2014 Collections Sneak Peek

persona-wanderlust-giveawayIt’s been an incredibly busy month for previews and releases as the different brands launch their fall and holiday designs, and today we take a look at the upcoming Person Fall 2014 Collections.  The whole thing is called Wanderlust, but as is typical for the brand they’ve split it into three distinct collections: Asia Collection, Sahara Collection, and India Collection. As the names imply, each set features motifs from that area in the world.

These charms are will be debuting on October 3rd. Asia is a huge continent but the charms in this set mostly focus on Japanese and Chinese motifs.  My favorites from the three collections are part of this theme especially the cherry blossom and Japanese temple beads.  The same applies for the Sahara Collection which really explores the Egyptian country.  India probably has the most ornate and elaborate designs in this release with colorful enamels and flourishing details.

Also, they’re hosting a giveaway contest on their Facebook page – just comment through the link which bead you’d like of the three in the picture above (Lucky Cat, Exotic Silk or Magic Lamp).  The deadline is 12 am EST on September 22nd.   Persona was also one of the brands I saw at the JCK tradeshow at the end of spring and I was rather impressed with this collection – it seems like they’ve put a lot of thought into the designs.  I’m glad to see how they’ve evolved their style and I love the idea of travel theme beads in general.  Which theme do you like the most?

    Very nicely done for Persona. I agree those cherry blossoms are terrific, such a nice departure from typically shaped beads! The Egyptian cat is cute, and I like the “Ohm Sun.” I wish one of those was part of the giveway! 😉 I guess of those either the exotic silk, or magic lamp, as I still like Pandora’s Lucky Cat better. 😀

    What are your thoughts on Persona? How is the quality compared tot other charm bracelets?

      I think their designs are definitely getting better and they’re finding their own voice. The quality is good, they’re on the lighter side since most of the ones I’ve gotten are openworks. 🙂
