Today is the start of a few Halloween themed giveaways. I wanted this giveaway to end before Halloween, so here it is!
Five very awesome book charms made by Southwest Sky Jewelry on etsy!
Nancy makes these awesome little book charms based on books published before 1923 as they are public domain and there's no copyright law to get around. She also said that sometimes she adds some images to the covers that may not be on the book because so many books published before 1923 didn't have any images and the images make it much more interesting!
Authors are also welcome to request having their own books made into charms.
Are you needing a few ideas for what to do with charms? Well, the things you can use them for are endless.
Bookmarks (hang them on the top or bottom)
and the list could go on...
As you can see in the picture all these mini charms fit the Halloween 'theme'.
But she makes other awesome items as well.
She sells a variety of gorgeous items in different price points. I'm very surprised at the affordability of her items!
Keep in mind you can ask her to make custom mini book charms as well. Just contact her on her etsy.

For your last entry,
Leave a comment with a book(s) you would like to see made into a charm. Now keep in mind for copyright reasons she makes them from books published before 1923. But you don't need to check the published date, just name a favorite classic, if she makes it she'll double check. This can include children's books as well!
Also take note that she can make the charms per the authors request or permission for more recently published books.
Make sure you check back for November's Giveaway of more mini book charms!
And more Halloween themed giveaways to come!
