Recently I had the pleasure of attending the Juvi Designs sample sale at the Odessa roof to bar. As you can imagine I was very excited as I love their products and couldn’t wait to see their new items and bag a bargain!
For those of you who don’t know Juvi Designs is an Irish owned Jewellery Company set up in 2005 by husband and wife duo Julie (Interior Designer) and Vincent (Silversmith) Tynan.
They are inspired by natural elements, the vivid / warm colours. Their designs are classic and elegant using semi-precious stones and pearl, set in sterling silver and vermeil (gold plated).
Q. Can your Pandora snake bracelet be made smaller?
I’ve often been asked this question and knew that this was possible but never knew anyone that had it done or knew anyone that would be willing to do it.
I’ve found a place, Rocks Jewellers on Grafton St. It was super easy and the staff were very nice. I myself had a 20cm bracelet which was much too big for me after I’d lost weight so I decided to get it shortened. I was going on holidays and hadn’t been wearing my bracelet anyway, so for me it was the best time to do it.
I had been measured for a new Pandora bracelet and was suggested a size 18cm (which would probably stretch out a bit) so I decided to go with that size. I got 1cm taken from each side, this costs more and there is more work but I am all about the symmetry so I did it. It cost €30, half the price of buying a whole new one. I have to say was worth every penny.

Pandora launched their new autumn collection and I have to say I’m liking it. This season is numbers and symbols, the season before was letters and symbols which means you can update on ones you may already have. I really love that big jewellery chains are getting into meanings and positive energy with charms and other items.
So as a fan of Pandora I was quite excited about these coming out. They come in sterling silver and some come in 14ct rose gold. The letters and numbers are self-explanatory, A – Z and 0 – 9. The symbols are a bit more personal.
