I heard word of this fab competition the other day where you could get the chance to win your very own personalised Pandora bracelet worth up to £250 (or online vouchers up to the same value) from John Greed Jewellery.
I could not pass up this amazing opportunity and so jumped at the chance to design my very own charm bracelet.
This is the little beauty I slaved over for literally a good few hours. I trawled the John Greed website numerous times, picking out loads of different charms that I liked but these cuties made the cut.
First of all, for the main bracelet I picked the number one best seller, SILVER BRACELET at £55.
As you've probably seen, I actually own the DOUBLE WRAP LEATHER BRACELET so I decided to pick the silver as I'd love to try something a little more luxurious.
Now on to the charms.
The first, no-doubt-about-it pick for me was this little baby - the SILVER LUCKY CAT at £30.
LOOK at her! I can't even. She's an absolute babe and I'm an absolute crazy cat lady. No word of a lie. Reminds me of when I went to China Town with my boyfriend and he sneakily bought me a lucky cat ornament which, to this day, sits waving at me from my bookshelf.
To keep kitty company, I decided to go with a charm that I've been eyeing up for months. This one is the ELEPHANT at £30, again.
I've loved this charm since I set my eyes on him but have never actually gone and bought one for myself. He's a little babe and I need him on my bracelet to remind me to not forget! Elephants never forget, but unfortunately I forget a lot...now, what was it I needed to remember?
So, I'm up to £115 of my £250 virtual budget - who's next...?
...this little lady - the BABUSHKA who is priced at £35.
Asdfghjkl! She's so adorable. I own several million Matryoshka (or Babushka Russian Dolls) and they're all dotted around my bedroom. I don't really know where the fascination comes from but I've built up quite a little collection and I think she'd fit in perfectly. What a little stunner.
Now, keep it hush but word on the street is that Babushka has a fancy man... I promised I wouldn't tell, but she's got the hots for Mr. VIKING. Wit woo! And he's only £30!
Of course, I couldn't take her away from John Greed without her other half, so this little charm-er is my next pick. Just LOOK at him with his little sword and helmet! Squeeeee!
Now my family is complete, I want something to keep them all together, so I chose two BLACK RHODIUM ANGULAR CLIPS at £35 each which will sit either side of the charms to keep them from separating.
Nothing cutesy about these. I was actually drawn to them because of how angular they are and how a simple, geometric shape clashes nicely with the intricate charms. I also love the colour of these, which is why I picked them over the simpler SILVER version.
So that's it... bang on £250 as well.
My perfect little bracelet. I hope you like it?
Good luck if you enter the competition!
And a massive thank you to John Greed Jewellery for the chance to win such an awesome prize.
Lots of love,
