      Every year, it seems like thereʼs one fashion trend that takes over Seekonk High School. This
      year, the accessory of the moment seems to be Pandora bracelets. The bracelets have
                                    become popular for their individuality and customizability. Every
                                    element that makes up the Pandora bracelet is up to the wearer,
                                    from the bracelet itself to the charms that go on it. Wearers can
                                    choose from sterling silver or different types of leather bracelets,
                                    as well as charms made of gold, silver, and colored glass.
     The Pandora brand originates in Denmark and the popular
                                    charm bracelets were introduced there in 1999, and quickly
      gained popularity across all of Europe. However, the trend hasnʼt found itself in American
      culture until recently. Now that the bracelets have caught on, women of every age can be
      seen wearing them. The popularity of the bracelets has even lent itself to the opening of a
      Pandora store in the Providence Place Mall, among other locations. Pandora has charms for
      every holiday and occasion and everything in between. From dice to suitcases to every
      animal imaginable, wearers can find charms to match just about any memory. The bracelets
      make a great birthday or graduation gift. The charms tend to be a little expensive, so most
      wearers start with just a few charms and fill the bracelet over time, which adds to the
      uniqueness of the jewelry. Pandora bracelets are sure to continue in their popularity as new
 charms are released for spring.
