Magical forests filled with enchanting scenes inspired the Pandora Autumn 2019 collection. The collection also introduced us to new friends such as Nino the Hedgehog (798353EN16) and the Sweet Tree Monster (798260NRG). Other new characters remain hidden for now. Such as the Home Sweet Heart Pendant (798284CZ) charm which appears to be the secret home of a forest fairy! Its mysterious air is part of what makes it one of my favourite charms from the Autumn 2019 Collection.

Beautiful detail covers every side of the Home Sweet Heart Pendant (798284CZ) charm. Dark oxidisation highlights the hinges and lock on heart shaped door. While wild flowers and two tiny toad stools grace the entrance to this secret house. If you look carefully you might catch a glimpse of its inhabitant peeking out of the window!

Both the doors hinges and wooden grain texture continue around the back of the Home Sweet Heart Pendant (798284CZ) charm. Happily there are no hallmarks on the reverse of the pendant which would detract from the design.

Open the Home Sweet Heart Pendant to reveal the hidden message, “Home sweet heart”. Both sides of the heart shaped locket are deep enough to hold a small photograph.

The standard Pandora silver hallmark, ‘S925 ALE’ are stamped on one side of the bale. Sparkling clear cubic zirconia stones also decorate the slim bale.

Style 1: Home’s Where The Heart Is

Home wasn’t a set house, or a single town on a map. It was wherever the people who loved you were, whenever you were together. Not a place, but a moment, and then another, building on each other like bricks to create a solid shelter that you take with you for your entire life, wherever you may go.

Home isn’t where you’re from, it’s where you find light when all grows dark.

There is nothing more admirable than when two people who see eye to eye keep house as man and wife, confounding their enemies and delighting their friends.”

My first styling with the Home Sweet Heart Pendant is a two tone design set on the lovely 14k Gold Clasp Pandora Snake Chain Moments Bracelet (590702HG). The bracelet is filled with the things that are dear to my heart and make my house my home.

Either side of the Home Sweet Heart Pendant are charm to represent the my husband, the love of my heart. The cute Mother & Baby Chimp (790422) charm was my first Pandora charm which was a gift from my husband for our wedding anniversary. While the gorgeous two tone Dragonfly (790898) charm reminds me of our wedding day. My little fur baby is represented with the sweet Disney Figaro Portrait (797488EN16) charm. Tea and cake are essential items in my home and are illustrated with the two tone Cupcake (790417) and Teapot (790250) charms along with the more recent Enchanted Teapot (797065CZ). On a side note, I love that Pandora categorise the Enchanted Teapot charm under ‘Hobbies’!

The 14k Gold Clasp Pandora Snake Chain Moments Bracelet is currently available for £125 in the outlet on the Pandora UK eStore.

The wall is silence, the grass is sleep. Tall trees of peace their vigil keep. And the Fairy of Dreams with moth-wings furled, Plays soft on her flute to the drowsy world.

Fairies are invisible and inaudible like angels. But their magic sparkles in nature.

Set on the classic Pandora Snake Chain Moments Bracelet (590702HV), my second design with the Home Sweet Heart Pendant combines the beauty of nature with the wonder of fairies. The stunning Fascinating Olive Crystal (791729NLG) glimmer and gleam between the warm Muirapiranga Wood Murano (790703) charms. Bruno the Unicorn (797609) hides between the flowers while the Seven Dwarfs (797491) quietly sneak around. Meanwhile the Mushroom & Frog (798558C00) charm depicts Prince Naveen as he waits for Princess Tiana. This adorable charm was a kind gift from the sweet Anrika and is near to my heart.

My verdict on the Pandora Home Sweet Heart Pendant? It has a home in my heart!

I tuoi progetti sono sempre incantevoli. Questo pendente è davvero uno dei pezzi più belli della collezione autunnale.
È così dettagliato! Proprio nel solco della migliore produzione di Pandora.

Hi Pat,

Thank you for your continued support of the blog and your nice comments. Yes, I am happy I was able to picks up the wooden bead Muranos earlier this year, they have proved to be quite adaptable. I am also happy that hubby said to get all four chuckle

Have a great day,

Dora

Hubby said that eek , he’s a keeper silly , mine usually glazes over hmm . I wish I’d seen those wooden beads, they’re stunning and Pandora should re-release them arrow .

Haha, yes he seemed to understand that they are quite rare and I should take the opportunity to get 4 at the same time in the same colour. I didn’t know about the Winter Wonderland theme at the time but had heard whispers of the Africa theme for summer (it was early 2019) and so I got them in anticipation of that.
