Summer To Fall – Pandora Style Beads

Officially it is Fall, although you’d never know it stepping outside into 95 degree heat, but it is here. I do notice a distinct chill in the air in the early mornings, though. That little bit of crispness that tells you the season is here (or almost here in our case).

I am SO ready for the weather to change and for that chill to be in the air all day long. I can’t wait to see the leaves change color (yes, where we live in SoCal they actually do that – something to do with it getting cold enough here in the Winter I think…)

I really can’t believe that the holidays are right around the corner though – how are we already here at this time of year again?! These days, I seem to have to make a special effort to slow my mind down so I am sure to enjoy everything and not let it all go by in a blur.

In the meantime, as I pine for Fall and prepare for the holidays, here are a few new Pandora-style beads to brighten your day:  😉

Pandora / Troll Style Big Hole Glass Beads

One of my goals this year has been to challenge myself with new designs I haven’t done before, or bring back designs I haven’t done in a long time.

It began with creating more florals in glass, and is continuing with making large hole beads that fit those popular European bracelets like Pandora, Biagi, Troll, etc.

I have made this style bead in the past but did not have the special tools needed to professionally line the large holes with solid sterling silver coring for that really beautiful, jeweler’s finish – but now I do!

Introducing my new line of Pandora-style glass beads fully lined from end to end with genuine sterling silver tubing:
