When I bought Motifs I did not have a single piece of Pandora. In all honesty, I thought I might drop the brand because I just did not know enough about Pandora. No worries, I am not dropping the brand. I am going to share with you two of my Pandora bracelet stories.
The first bracelet that I started has the traditional barrel clasp. I like my bracelets to be symmetrical but you can design them in any way that makes you happy. So far this bracelet is being done in red, black and silver which are my favorite colors. This past spring Pandora released a lady bug and I could not wait to get this little bug on my bracelet. On my wedding day a little lady bug landed on my dress while we were taking pictures, at that time all I knew about the lady bug was that they were a symbol of good luck, which I loved having that land on me. Pandora states that the ladybug is linked not only to good luck but is a symbol of protection, and said to bring your true love to you. Perfect lucky charm to have on my bracelet. Every time I look at it I think of my wedding day and of my amazing husband.
In the middle of my bracelet I have the Pandora charm for Love and Guidance, which is an angel wing with a small gold heart. Personally the angel wing represents to me faith, strength, and grace, all things I try to hold myself to.
And then there is my baseball charm. This one also I hold very dear, before I bought Motifs I was the general manager of the Great Falls Voyagers, a minor league affiliate of the Chicago White Sox. I worked my tail off to get and hold that position, out of 160 teams there were only 4 female general managers. I am proud of the work I did and baseball will always hold a special place in my heart.
Now I am a layering girl so I have a second Pandora bracelet that I like to wear. My second bracelet I made with my daughter, Marias, in mind. It has an M in the middle for her and then I used pink and white charms. The pink charms on this bracelet are roses, which I have always loved the rose and I think of love when I see a rose. Along with love, when creating this bracelet I thought of sweetness, and innocence. I just recently placed it on our new bangle that has engraved on it, Always in My Heart, which my daughter is always in my heart.
