Mulan | Disney Princesses Collection: Part 1

First things first, a blessed Easter to all who celebrate.

And lo, here we begin the first part of the Disney Princesses collection! I thought we should start off strong, with a strong leading lady and awesome role model - 花木蘭 - Mulan!

I like Mulan for many reasons, for her defying of conventional norms, her respect and love for her parents, and her boundless courage in the face of insurmountable odds. She's definitely one of the coolest Disney "princesses" around. When I started making this collection, I thought red would be a colour that would suit Mulan - strong and bold - two qualities that she possesses in large quantities.
 A rich red chinese crystal doughnut encased within a round double-twisted ring (representing the core value that Mulan embodies - love for family), a red rose on a flower filigree (in tribute to Mulan's surname, which means flower in mandarin), the courage she possesses, followed by wine red and cherry red Czech Preciosa crystals.
 At the other end of the bracelet is an arrow link and a princess charm. The princess charm can be exchanged with a "made with love" charm, as seen here.

Reminder that the "princess" charm can be exchanged for a "made with love" charm! :)

 Now I propose to end every post of this lovely Disney collection with a song from that cartoon! 
Most will choose Christina Aguilera's "Reflection", but I shall choose another song in Mulan, which I happen to love and sometimes sing along to when I wanna psyche myself up to be awesome, or something. :)

We must be swift as a coursing river
With all the force of a great typhoon
With all the strength of a raging fire
Mysterious as the dark side of the moon!
