Bookish Etsy - The Forks Forest (plus Giveaway)

A very warm welcome to Tena from The Forks Forest who will kick off my new Bookish Etsy feature with her wonderful collection of The Hunger Games inspired jewelry. And if the Forks Forest has a familiar ring to it, guess what? Tena lives there! Who would have thought we'd all get to know someone from a place that is best known for sparkling vampires? Yep, it's a small world after all.

But now feast your eyes on some of Tena's lovely creations ...

And brace yourselves, my dears!
Tena is now also creating 50 Shades of Grey pieces ...

LATERS BABY Silk Ribbon Wrap

And now let's listen to Tena's message to ya all! 

Hi I am Tena and named my shop after my hometown here in Forks, WA, thus The Forks Forest. I actually do live in the middle of the forest, and it’s not unusual to find elk in my front yard on a crisp winter morning.
My first creations were for the Twilight book series and now I make Hunger Games and Fifty Shades of Grey pieces. My newest creations are hand stamped quotes from books series and I love the silk ribbon wraps I have offered this year. I’ll gladly take requests so if you have a favorite book quote you would like to see in copper or aluminum just send me your request and I will be glad to work a piece to your liking. Cuff rings and bracelets are soon to be offered so check out my shop and enter to win one of my all time best sellers, the complete quote “You love me, real or not real?” I tell him “Real.” 
My best, Tena, The Forks Forest.

Thanks so much for being my guest today! It was fun having you and I am sure my readers will totally agree with me, especially when they see this ...

Tena has generously offered one of my readers this stunning piece! And let it be said that when she first asked me whether I'd rather want to review this item or offer it to one of my readers ... that was one of the harder decisions in my life. It only goes to show how much I love you all!

  1. I love the necklace and I am already thinking about my favorite quote to ask Tena for something special... Hmm, Birgit, you do find creative people! :)
    P.S. I know you love us :))

  2. certainly it must be a hard decision, the pieces are very nice ^_^

  3. I love that you have those types of giveaways. Few bookbloggers do that, even though almost ALL of us *WANT* to own such cute things, right? Anyway, I think I should spend more time on Etsy.. Or maybe not. I'm broke as it is. o.o

  4. Love these rustic looking pieces!

  5. Amazing shop! Thank you for the giveaway.
