REVIEW: PANDORA DISNEY EEYORE CHARM
“”Good morning, Eeyore,” said Pooh.
“Good morning, Pooh Bear,” said Eeyore gloomily.
“If it is a good morning,” he said.
“Which I doubt,” said he.”
Eeyore is depicted perfectly with his woeful expression in this beautiful charm.
The PANDORA Disney Eeyore Charm (N0. 791567EN80) is absolutely adorable! The Disney Eeyore Charm was released as part of the PANDORA Disney 2015 Spring collection.
The PANDORA Disney Eeyore Charm is a must-have for any Winnie the Pooh fan. PANDORA have also produced a Disney Winnie the Pooh Portrait Charm (No. 791566) and a Disney Honey Pot Pooh (No. 791919ENMX). It is rumoured that PANDORA will be releasing Tigger and Piglet charms later this year as part of the PANDORA Disney 2017 Spring Collection.
'What did you say it was?' he asked. 'Tigger.' 'Ah!' said Eeyore. 'He's just come,' explained Piglet. 'Ah!' said Eeyore again. He thought for a long time and then said: 'When is he going?'
Eeyore is one of my favourite characters from Winnie the Pooh, as I love his gloomy outlook and cynical remarks. He never expects anything good to happen and is suspicious if it does! The PANDORA Disney Eeyore Charm illustrates the story “In Which Eeyore Loses a Tail and Pooh Finds One.” On the back of the Eeyore Charm you can see a little stump where his tail had been and he is holding the found tail, complete with pink enamel bow, in his foot.
The detail on the PANDORA Disney Eeyore Charm is amazing! On the back edge of the charm you can see Eeyore’s stitching as well as his tail stump. The Disney Eeyore Charm is quite a small charm and this means the PANDORA and Disney hallmarks cover a lot of his bottom. However once on a bracelet, the Disney Eeyore Charm seems to sit quite nicely and the hallmarks are not very noticeable.
'You must have left it somewhere,' said Winnie the Pooh. 'Somebody must have taken it,' said Eeyore. 'How Like Them,' he added, after a long silence.'
The PANDORA Disney Eeyore Charm is a threaded charm. Many of the newer PANDORA charms have been openwork but I do like to have threaded charms. Openwork charms are quick to add onto your bracelet but it is nice to have some threaded charms as if a threaded charm is at the end of your bracelet it stops the other charms from falling off when you remove the bracelet.
'It's snowing still,' said Eeyore gloomily. 'So it is.' 'And freezing.' 'Is it?' 'Yes,' said Eeyore. 'However,' he said, brightening up a little, 'we haven't had an earthquake lately.'
I love that the stitching detail is visible along the bottom and the legs of the charm. It is similar to the style of the original Winnie the Pooh illustrations by E.H. Shepard. The mane of hair on the Disney Eeyore Charm is also in keeping with the original illustrations and adds a nice design element to the reverse of the charm.
'I might have known,' said Eeyore. 'After all, one can’t complain. I have my friends. Somebody spoke to me only yesterday. And was it last week or the week before that Rabbit bumped into me and said ‘Bother!’. The Social Round. Always something going on.'
Despite being quite a small charm, I think the PANDORA Disney Eeyore Charm is worth the price as the detail is really incredible. I hope that the future PANDORA Tigger and Piglet charms are of a similar quality. It would also be nice to have another Winnie the Pooh charm in the same full bodied style.
We can’t all and some of us don’t. That’s all there is to it.
As the PANDORA Disney Eeyore Charm is so cute, he works really well worn simply alone on a PANDORA Moments Leather bracelet. I chose the pink Double Leather for this styling option to highlight the little pink bow on Eeyore’s tail. I think the Honeysuckle Pink Leather Bracelet will be a better colour match but the pale pink looks sweet too.
'And how are you?' said Winnie-the-Pooh. Eeyore shook his head from side to side. 'Not very how,' he said. 'I don't seem to have felt at all how for a long time.' 'Dear, dear,' said Pooh, 'I'm sorry about that. Let's have a look at you.'
'Hallo, Eeyore.' 'Same to you, Pooh Bear, and twice on Thursdays,' said Eeyore gloomily.
The nicest thing about the rain is that it always stops. Eventually.
As the pink enamel is only on a small part of the charm, it is still quite versatile to different colour options. I designed a mini Disney theme on a PANDORA Bangle using the Disney Winnie the Pooh Portrait Charm (No. 791566) and the PANDORA Disney Pearlescent Mickey Silhouettes Charm (N0. 791818MOP). The Pearlescent Mickey Silhouettes Charm was part of the PANDORA Disney 2016 Winter collection.
On my final styling I used a pink and white colour theme. The pink bow on the Disney Eeyore Charm matches the Shoreline Sea Glass Murano (No. 791608) perfectly. The purply-pink colour is also picked out as the light plays with the mother-of-pearl on the Pearlescent Mickey Silhouettes Charm.
I’m really excited for the future of PANDORA Disney Tigger and Piglet charms and look forward to creating more Winnie the Pooh designs with Pooh and Eeyore. See more Eeyore and Pooh bracelet designs on our Instagram account every #WinnieThePoohWednesday
My verdict on the Disney Eeyore Charm? I think this charm deserves a big round of applause and in the words of Eeyore 'If anybody wants to clap, now is the time to do it.'
