My best friends got me a real pandora bracelet for christmas with a pineapple charm (inside joke) and i loved it. when i went into kays today to pay on my account, i dedided to see what they had for beads. im a huge animal print fan. i wanted the leopard bead but they were sold out. then i saw this one and had to have it. eventhough the bead isnt 'pandora' it still fits and its cute and cheaper than other glass beads ive wanted. take care of it so it wont chip, it is glass afterall.
