yes I have a pandora bracelet

There is mega interest in Pandora in the US at the moment. I did an earlier post on charm bracelets, called “The Best Memories Dangle” and just by mentioning the name Pandora, that post generated a ton of interested pandora fans.
My husband surprised me with a Pandora bracelet this Christmas which was pretty incredible since he never heard of it before. He happened to walk into a mall and there right in the middle is the sparkly, intriguing store—the type of place that I would step in and stay in for what seemed like an eternity….to him.
My husband is a hardcore, non-shopper. He doesn’t have that gene. I guess most male-types don’t, shopping would be comparable to going to the dentist or visiting a nursing home. Even though we promised not to buy each other gifts this year, (of which I abided by that promise) he managed to pick out a silver bracelet and a couple of charms. He did well.
I loved it. I love jewelry. You see, I never met a jewelry store I didn’t like. He knew my fascination for charm bracelets—my original charm bracelet is about 45 years old.
I do something a little bit different with my pandora. I decided that since the beads are somewhat “pricey,” I would get more wear out of it if I also wore it as a necklace. I have the proper fitting bracelet and then I bought the largest available bracelet (9 inch) and I hook the two together to wear as a necklace. It looks great and I feel it shows off the beads better. On the days where I prefer the bracelet, I simply unhook it and snap it on my wrist.
Here’s my, what I call a “necklet“….what do you think?
