My lovely local Pandora store called to let me know the summer collection had arrived! I’ve been coveting the Flower Garden Murano ever since images of it appeared and it did not disappoint. The ones at the store were fairly similar and I would have been happy with any of them. The core is a deep raspberry colour and there is a bit of sparkle, too. Then there are two layers of flowers, in what I would describe as a mint green, apple green, white and the deep pink colour that is reminiscent of the Wild Hearts Murano Charm. Unfortunately, we had to get both a new lawn mower and BBQ last week, so I couldn’t buy anything other than this one bead! But there were lots of gorgeous new things in the store. The Teal Shimmer is simply stunning as is the Frosty Mint Murano. Here is a photo of the Flower Garden Murano. 


My old green leather bracelet from last summer looks great with it!


These flowers that just started blooming match really well, I think!

Here is the bead from the side so you can see the two layers of flowers. 


I thought I’d try the Flower Garden Murano with the Wild Hearts Murano. They make a great match!


Here’s the bead with a couple of Cold Milk Ohm Beads on the Trollbeads Copper Bangle. 


The pale mint green flowers match the True Beadz in the Linen shade!


And finally, below left to right are the Pandora Wild Hearts Murano, Trollbeads Dot’n’Dot Spacer, Pandora Disney Tinkerbell Murano, Trollbeads Sunbeam Spacer and the Pandora Flower Garden Murano. Personally, I think I like this last combo the best and am going to wear it today.
