Pandora Heirloom bracelet

I started a Pandora bracelet with the gift money from my birthday.  I figured the charms would be a nice, easy, little thing that I could refer people to when they ask for gift ideas.  In the process, we would also be building an heirloom, something I can pass down to M.  But what I can foresee happening is this becoming an obsession, and I will have it full of charms before a gift-giving event comes up ion the calendar!

I started off with a Pandora silver bracelet with lobster clasp, and two clips.

I wanted to add a pearl dangly charm in the middle, but because of a promotion, I ended up with a pink jeweled spacer as well.

Next I wanted to add a retired swirly charm, which I was able to find still at the original price, and again because there was a promotion running, I had to buy a second one, so I selected the cupcake.

fingers and toes

My toes are a lovely golden green, and match my shoes and my army green button-up shirt-dress perfectly! Borghese Euro Green, the one and only bottled I ever purchased from this drugstore brand.  I didn’t use a top coat because I was hoping to find a gold shatter polish today (I was unsuccessful) to apply on top.


My fingers are a free-handed funky French manicure, with soft pink (Essie Limo-scene) and grey-green (Essie Sew Psyched) with a Seche Vite topcoat.
