I'm a huge fan of the Twilight series and use it for a lot of inspired crafting. This is one of the latest things I've done based on the series. It's from Breaking Dawn the final book of the series. I won't spoil any plotlines for those who haven't read it, but I'll just say this is my version of Nessie's locket.

whole thing:

For those who know Twilight, I was thinking about adding a really great stone wolf charm I have to the necklace to represent Jacob. What do you think? Should I add a Jacob charm or just leave it as is?

I ADORE the idea of a Jacob charm.  I would fit it very nicely, I think.  This is quite fantastic.  I finished the series in October, [as an aside, I've read 15 more books since then, so I'm getting my vamps mixed up]  so sadly I can't remember what the locket said, and I only remember the locket itself vaguely.   I do love this tho.  Great work!

P.S. I made a Edward/Jacob bracelet, and looked everywhere for a wolf.  I had a rough time, I hope you either have one or can find one easily.  I ended up finding a little plastic miniature figurine at a Pat Catans (cheap-o craft store).   It probably measure up to less than a cubic inch.

The quote is "Plus que ma propre vie" which means "more than my own life" in French.

As for the charms, I already have some wolf charms. They are carved from jasper stone (which I found ironic) and look pretty good. They are about half and inch tall or so. I will update with new pic when I add one. The more I've been thinking about it the more I think it needs one! Smiley
