Bookish Etsy - Bookish Charm (plus Giveaway)

A round of applause for today's guest, lovely Erin from Bookish Charm! And wouldn't you know it ... her jewelry is not only bookish but also incredibly charming! If you've ever felt like showing the world your love for books this is the place where you'll find the perfect statement necklace. Make that necklaces, plural. Because honestly, could you pick just one!?

For those epic moments in your life!

For those who panic when the tea runs out and there's still 258 pages to got!

For those with a wordsmithing disposition!

For those who go through life without GPS!

And just in case that putting a bookish necklace around your neck isn't enough for you, how about adorning your walls with one of the bookish prints from Erin's second Etsy shop The Wandering Reader?

I bet you all want to learn a bit more about Erin and her shop, so who better to tell the tale than Erin herself!

Hello there, I'm Erin–the designer, creator, and all-around book lover behind Bookish Charm, a line of handcrafted jewelry and accessories for the bookish.

Making a line of jewelry dedicated to all things literary seemed like a natural extension of myself, as I have had a love affair with books all my life. They were my constant companions growing up, and I have found them to be faithful friends that provide both wisdom, humor, and guidance in the midst of difficult times.

I think that is why I got into the habit of writing down snippets of my favorite books or quotes from my favorite authors at an early age. They inspired me and kept me going during the rough patches of life, and encouraged me to work toward my dreams.

While I would do everything from scribble those quotes in the margins of my notebooks or write them on bookmarks, one of my favorite things to do was to write out those words on tiny scraps of paper and tuck them inside a locket I wore. That way, I reasoned, I could carry those words with me wherever I went.

At its core, that is where the inspiration for Bookish Charm came from. I wanted to give others the chance to carry the words that inspire them wherever they go in a way that is both meaningful and beautiful, and I am grateful to the many amazing individuals who have shared their own love of literature and what inspires them since I started Bookish Charm nearly two years ago.

Thanks so much; I hope you all have a wonderful day, and wish you the best of luck in the giveaway!
