NEW Twilight Inspired Beaded Necklace

I have to admit, I never really got Twilight. I can remember seeing tidbits of it all over the web and I would think, 'what is this Twilight', or 'what is all the hype about this Twilight'. But, for whatever reason it just didn't grab me (enough, I guess) and I had no interest in learning anything about it. Until.

One day, I realized that as my second oldest neice got, well, older, I was losing pace with keeping connected with her. And I missed that..immensly.

So, on purely that reason alone, I finally broke down and asked her what Twilight was all about. She went into a hyper-excited explanation and interpretation about the storyline....from day.one. (ugh). But soon, I was all caught up on the vampire series and as I learned, just in time for Breaking Dawn Part 1.

She was more than happy (can we say, excited!!!) to bring the tapes of the first two series' over for a sleep over. Even as I watched the first two series', I just didn't get it. But, I forged on. For the sake of staying connected with her.

Even to this day, with Breaking Dawn Part 2, only 16 days away from release, I'm still not a huge Twilight die-hard. But, that didn't stop me from being inspired by it! I've seen many interpretations of Twilight into handmade jewelry, but most are literal or of the style or quality that I just don't subscribe to.

In designing the Crystal Allure Beaded Jewelry's one-of-a-kind Twilight Inspired Necklace, I wanted to take a more classic, refined approach. I wanted my inspired piece to be something that could be worn anytime, any day, for any reason. Most of all, I wanted it to have timelessness. I didn't want it to become obsolete after all the fan fare died down about Twilight.

What emerged from the studio is a timeless handmade beaded necklace that projects an air of intrique, mystery, passion and love. Designed with rich blood red velvet faceted lentil beads, dark hematite Swarovski Crystals, sterling silver Bali beads and finished with our sterling silver signature jewelry tag.

To add to its' uniqueness, the Twilight Inspired Red Velvet Crystal Beaded Necklace (N037) is a one-of-a-kind!
