I was in Holland this summer and my husband’s aunt had on a fun
bracelet that had a few nice larger-holed silver and glass beads on
it. All she knew about it was that someone had recently given it to
her as a gift and that her daughters had given her more beads so she
could add to it or swap out however she liked. I’ve since realized
that it was a Pandora bead bracelet after stumbling onto a few of
these while surfing the Internet.
Anybody know when these European (Pandora) beads came onto the scene
or how they got started? I can’t decide if I’ve seen something that
hasn’t hit the streets in the U.S. yet or if I was asleep at the
wheel and totally missed them here.
