Pandora is completely round bracelet which flexes but due to its metal memory it will always return to its original shape. It fastens to the wrist by bending the bracelet and twisting over the wrist, then simply fasten the clasp. The charms on Panodra bracelets can sometimes slip around towards the clasp. We recommend these silicone stoppers which can be purchased separately, these can be moved around to keep your charms where you want them.
