Here is another fantasy-inspired creation for the fantasy lover! Teaming up with Julia from JULZECLECTICMIX, we have come up with our version of Lena Duchannes’ Necklace from the book Beautiful Creatures!
Beautiful Creatures is the first book in the Caster Chronicles series, written by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl. It features the meeting of Ethan, a small-town 16-year-old boy who meets Lena, a Caster who must be claimed for either the Light or Dark side on her sixteenth birthday. As they count down the days to her birthday, they battle against dark forces to save Lena, her family and their love. The books were made into a movie and released in early 2013.
Here are some excerpts from Beautiful Creatures describing the necklace:
A girl who wore a long silver chain around her neck, with tons of stuff dangling from it — a plastic ring from a bubblegum machine, a safety pin, and a bunch of other junk …
I touched her charm necklace. It all looked like junk, and most of it was — the most important junk in the world. And now it had become my junk, too. A flattened penny with a hole in it, from one of those machines at the food court across from the movie theater, where we had gone on our first date. A piece of yarn from the red sweater she had worn to go parking at the water tower, which had become an inside joke between us. The silver button I had given her for luck at the disciplinary meeting. My mom’s little paper-clip star.
Our version of the necklace contains a soda can tab, silver button, U.S. wheat penny, silver moon charm, colourful bubblegum plastic ring, raven bird charm, silver safety pin, a piece of red yarn tied into a ribbon, a paper clip shaped into a star, a black onyx bead, and a locket as a tribute to Genevieve’s locket. The silver-plated chain measures 24 inches.
The unique thing about such keepsake necklaces is that you get to customise it and really make it your own! Julia and I each did a personal Lena’s necklace:
We have assorted colours of the bubblegum plastic rings available, as well as the silver buttons, so you get to choose when purchasing a Lena necklace from us!
