Beautiful Pandora Charm Bracelet Ideas

Pretty much every girl and woman knows about Pandora charm bracelets, and there is no doubt these are an exciting piece of jewelry. You can choose from silver or gold, pick out the charms that mean something special to you, and change them whenever you like, perhaps considering green and red charms around Christmas time, romantic pink ones for Valentine’s, fun summer ones for the summer, and so on. There are lots of Pandora charm bracelet ideas regardless of your personal style.

Perhaps you want to buy a baby-related charm when you have a child or another one. Let your Pandora charm bracelet tell the story of your life and give it plenty of meaning by selecting your charms with care.

Why These Bracelets are So Popular

Like many other women I have one and I love it and wear it often. I think the main reason for their popularity is how much you can personalize them, picking out charms which resonate with you and have a special meaning to you.

My husband has bought me most of my charms, picking out the ones he knows I will like, so they all have extra-special appeal and meaning to be, because they were bought with love. Most of my Pandora charm bracelet ideas were his ideas but I love them too!

Get Creative with Pandora Charm Bracelet Ideas

You can swap the charms around whenever you like to make a themed piece of jewelry and you can switch from gold to silver, mix the colors up, or do whatever else you want. You can also get very long chains which you can wear as a necklace and because they are made the same way as the bracelets these will also hold charms.

Start with the Clip Beads

Panflower-pandora-clip-beaddora charm bracelets are really popular right now, and the clip beads are often added to enhance the charm selection on the bracelet.

Some people prefer just charms while others like to use clip beads and spacers. Others will play around with all kinds of pieces, swapping them daily or weekly, depending on their mood.

What are Clip Beads?

One of the best Pandora charm bracelet ideas is to use clip beads. Now these are similar to the charm but they clip on to the bracelet and stay in place rather than moving freely around the bracelet. The bracelet comes with 2 raised parts where they can be fitted, so you can add a maximum of 2 of them.

Your Choices

pandora-clip-ballNot only can you choose from silver or gold, but you can also choose your design. Pick something which fits in well with the rest of the bracelet or which appeals to you personally.

Once the clips are in place you can have a charm (as many as will fit) between the clips and they will stay in that area of the bracelet. You can also put charms between each clip and the bracelet closure.

Adding these is totally up to you although most charm bracelet fans want to have them, so they can separate the charms out in a natural way and add further beauty to their bracelet. Because there are so many clips to choose from you might like to get several, not only because you can have 2 different ones at a time on your bracelet but also because you can change them out whenever you want.

Actually changing the clips is quicker and easier than changing the charms because you don’t have to slide off several charms to get to the charm in the middle. The clip simply unclips from its position and you don’t have to slide anything off the bracelet to get to it.

History of Murano Glass Making

The glassmakers in Murano were prominent citizens, greatly respected for their glasswork. By the 1300s they were allowed to wear swords, found their daughters married to the richest families in Venice, and were immune from prosecution.

blue-hawaii-glass-beadThey were however not permitted to leave the republic. A lot of them did choose to risk leaving, setting up glass foundries as far away as England and Holland.

3000 of Murano’s 7000 inhabitants were involved in glass-making in some way by the end of the 1500s.

These glass-makers were known for making the best quality glass and they created or refined various technologies including enameled glass, crystalline glass, multicolored glass, glass with gold threads in it, milk glass and imitation gemstones.

There are still Murano glass-workers in Murano today using the old techniques to make all kinds of beautiful items from glass figurines to wine stoppers, chandeliers and art pieces. There are studios and factories making all kinds of objects from original sculpture to mass marketed stemware.

You can see displays of glass samples ranging from the Egyptian era to modern times, and learn more about the history of making glass.

The Museo Vetrario (Glass Museum) in the Palazzo Giustinian, which holds displays on the history of glassmaking. They also have glass samples ranging from Egyptian times through the present day. A lot of Murano glass was made in the 1950s and 1960s and exported or sold to tourists.

How is Murano Glass Made?

The process of making the glass is complicated and most is made with a lampworking technique. Silica becomes liquid at a high temperature, and this is used to make the glass. As it cools down it becomes more solid and when it is soft enough to work with, the artisan shapes it, before it sets completely.

Glass Jewelry

purple-pandora-braceletIt doesn’t have to be Murano when considering Pandora charm bracelet ideas – regular glass is also good. And cheaper. Glass jewelry is distinctive and will ensure that you make heads turn every time you wear a piece of this jewelry. The style of glass beads have been around for thousands of years and can make a nice alternative to other pieces. Today the beads are typically made by machines; however there are still skilled craftsmen that enjoy making the beads by hand.
