I wasn’t planning to do a blog post today and yes, I need more beads like a hole in the head (my budget for the September Bead Bash is now one bead, ha ha!) but once a season I’ll buy one or two Pandora beads. The kids were out golfing with their grandpa and uncle so I took the opportunity to head to the mall. I really don’t have many Pandora beads to put them with, so I just took a few photos for fun. 

The pink Geometric Facets is what really caught my eye and I will buy another one later this year. It’s super pretty!

The other bead is the Dark Purple Shimmer and I like it but not as much as the Light Purple Shimmer. Here’s a macro shot. I gather the little shards are bits of sterling silver!

It really is a deep, royal purple. I put it with my Lilac True Beadz to see how it would look. 

I think the pink Geometric Facets looks great on the Honeysuckle Pink Leather Bracelet. 

I’m not sure about the Dark Purple Shimmer on the leather. Opinions are welcome!

Here they are in the sun. It’s hard to capture beads in the direct sunlight, but I like the flash of light on the Geometric Facets. 

Here’s one last look. Are these a must have for anyone or are you going to pass?
