Dora Explores: Pandora Murano Glass Sea Turtle Dangle Charm
Like many other Pandora fans, I adore the beauty of Murano glass. Pandora have pushed their creative powers and for the first time produced a charm with Murano glass encompassed in its the design.
A large peacock Murano glass bead forms the main body of the Pandora Murano Glass Sea Turtle (798939C01) charm. Its sapphire and cerulean glass coloured shell perfectly mirrors the colour of the sea.
A beautiful filigree pattern with an entwined love heart decorates the back of the Murano Glass Sea Turtle charm. As light passes through the azure glass it creates a delightful shimmering scale like effect.
Tiny beading forms claws on the silver flippers of the Pandora Sea Turtle charm while his dinky tail peeps out behind his beautiful glass shell.
Bleached aqua blue and icy green crystals alternate on bale of the Murano Glass Sea Turtle charm. The normal Pandora hallmark, ‘S925 ALE’ is engraved on one side of the bale.
Style 1: Seascape
“See the turtle of enormous girth, on his shell he holds the earth. If you want to run and play, come along the beam today.”
Stephen King, The Waste Lands
“As true as steel, as plantage to the moon, as sun to day, at turtle to her mate, as iron to adamant, as earth to centre.”
“I felt like time was a great sea, and I was floating on the back of a turtle, and no sails broke the horizon.”
My first styling with the Murano Glass Sea Turtle (798939C01) is a beautiful seascape theme, with the Limited Edition Seashell Clasp Braided Leather Bracelet (598951C01) forming a turquoise line on the horizon.
Forming a burst of colour in the centre, the Murano Glass Sea Turtle is flanked on either side with the Seahorses Heart (798949C00) and Starfish, Shells & Hearts (798950C00) openwork charms. The sparkling Clear Pavé Clips (791817CZ) finish the design and their silicone grip ensure the charms stay in place on the leather bracelet.
Style 2: Sun, Sea & Sand
“Perhaps I am the turtle, able to live simply anywhere, even underwater for short periods, with my home on my back.”
“When this is over, we will go to the rain forest, or the pyramids, or a beach as white as bone.
We will eat grapes from the vine, we will swim with sea turtles, we will walk miles on cobblestone streets.
We will laugh and talk and confess.
“The beach is in our blood. Everyone in our family returns to the beach instinctively, just like the sea turtles.”
As a dangle charm, the Pandora Murano Glass Sea Turtle (798939C01) is ideal for both bracelet and necklace stylings. My second styling highlights its versatility and is set on the Small Silver O Pendant (398296) and Classic Silver Cable Chain (590515).
The Murano Glass Sea Turtle, along with the Beaded Starfish (398945C00) and Sparkling Palm Tree (791540CZ) charms represent the three S’s to make a perfect vacation; sun, sea and sand! Threaded through the necklace chain the Sparkling Coffee Bean (798131CZ) charm creates a stylish finish to the design.
My verdict on the Pandora Murano Glass Sea Turtle Dangle Charm? It’s oceans apart!
