Today I’m rounding off the month with a review of the Spring 2014 Bicycle charm! This will be the last of my reviews for Spring 2014, and I’ll be covering the Summer 2014 collection over the next month or so. ^^ This is old news to some extent, but I loved the intricate detail on this charm so much that I had to share!
I’m sorry that this post is up so late, but I’ve been incredibly busy over the last few days – I’ve just finished my final exams for my degree and so I didn’t have time to pre-write my articles, as I normally would. Things will be back to normal over the next few months, however!
The Bicycle charm was released back in March with the rest of the Spring 2014 collection and was an instant favourite of mine. The details are perfectly realised, down to the pedals that face oppositely on each side of the bike! The bicycle has a nostalgic vintage feel, with a sweet little basket attached to its front.
The charm has a few angles on it, however, as you can see with the pedals, handlebars and saddle – I’ve caught it already on a few things (including my spaniel’s ear! :S). Despite this, it’s not as bad as some Pandora dangles – I can’t wear my Reindeer dangle with anything knitted, for example!
The charm itself is very thin, as you can see in this picture – it feels very light and a little insubstantial when you hold it. Still, the detail in it is very lovely, especially considering how small it is! The bicycle’s basket is decorated one of the traditional Pandora hearts – you often get a little heart hidden in a charm’s detail.
These aren’t so much stylings as they are just how I’ve chosen to wear my bicycle charm! I am building what will be a blue and white themed bracelet – but I’ve not really put together the design for it, yet.
I really like the dainty look of the Bicycle charm with the floral tones of the Darling Daisy clip and the Love Note dangle – it works well with other charms from the Spring collections.
However, I’d also love a bracelet design which paired the bicycle with some British-themed charms, such as the London Bus or Big Ben!
This is an incredibly-detailed charm, with so much character to it. While it is quite small, and slim, the plus side is that this does make it feel nice and light on your wrist! It’s absolutely one of my favourites of the collection – I love charms that are ‘charms’, if you know that I mean – charms that actually represent something.
The Bicycle is £30 in the UK and $35 in the US.
Have you bought everything you wanted from the Spring collections? Are you a fan of Pandora dangle charms?
