Bella Twilight Jewelry
One of our artists, Lorainne Caprino, has two daughters that are in love with the "Twilight" Series of books. So she has created a sterling silver charm bracelet and charms that symbolize each of the books.
We currently have the sterling silver bracelet, which comes with 2 charms, a heart and a wolf for $33. Additional charms can be purchased for $ 7.
For those of you that don't know about these books, here is a little snyopsis I got off wikipedia.
Twilight is a young-adult vampire-romance novel written by author Stephenie Meyer. It was originally published in 2005 in hardback. It is the first book of the Twilight series, and introduces seventeen-year-old Isabella "Bella" Swan who moves from Phoenix, Arizona, to Forks, Washington, and finds her life in danger when she falls in love with a vampire, Edward Cullen.
The apple charm represents the forbidden fruit from the book of Genesis.
The chess piece charm represents Bella.
More charms are to come!
