With the Memorial Day weekend just days away, I am looking forward to a three-day weekend of fun, sun, and lots of extra reading time. I am also celebrating the unofficial start of summer with a sale on my bookish pendants. These handmade pendants are a great way to combine your summer style with your summer reading list and to show off your love of books and literature while on vacation, heading to the beach, or enjoying the summer sunshine. Don’t believe me? Check out these fun summer outfits featuring handmade pendants inspired by The Great Gatsby and Jules Verne’s 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.
Hello again, book lovers. Sorry it’s been so quiet in here but I’ve spent the bulk of the past two months in the hospital and wasn’t able to post here very much. I am pleased to say that, failing any more complications or surprises, that I am on the mend and ready to get back to work making beautiful handmade literary jewelry for all of you obsessive book lovers, readers, and bibliophiles. I am in the process of getting the C. S. Literary Jewelry Etsy shop back up and running. I am not 100% there yet but I have some great Mother’s Day gifts, teacher appreciation gifts, and graduation gifts for book lovers posted and available for purchase in the shop and I expect to have more of your favorite book jewelry back in stock in the next few days. I am planning a Grand Reopening Sale when my shop is fully stocked and officially back in business so be sure to check back here (or subscribe to my newsletter) to get more details about that when they are available. I am also in the process of writing up book reviews for all the books I read while I was recovering, so stay tuned for those.
In the meanwhile, I want to thank you all for your patience and for the good thoughts / messages of encouragement many of you sent via Facebook and Instagram while I was sick and stressed. I really appreciated it!
P.S. I WAS able to post to Instagram and spent last month celebration National Poetry Month by posting a different poem or quote from a poem each day. It was pretty great and definitely worth checking out. If you don’t follow me on Instagram yet, you can see my posts here.

Hello again poetry lovers! As many of you know, I am utterly obsessed with T. S. Eliot’s poem, The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock, and so I was very excited when I heard that Cheekybats Productions was making a short, independent film based on the poem. From everything I’ve read and seen, (including this teaser for the film ), the production promises to be gorgeous and will feature original Prufrock – inspired music and artwork by a wide range of talented musicians and artists.
And if all this wasn’t exciting enough, I am thrilled to announce that our Tea Lovers’ Charm Necklace will be featured in the film!! (#ReadyForOurCloseUp #GonnaBeAStar #SoExcited)
If you would like to be a part of Prufrock: The Film. They are currently looking for extras and crew members and you can also help fund the film by supporting their Indiegogo campaign.
In addition to the satisfaction of helping Prufrock come to life, there are a wide range of incentives being offered for Prufrock supporters, including tickets to see the film, some of the artwork featured in the film, and Prufrock – inspired jewelry from C. S. Literary Jewelry, including this exclusive J. Alfred Prufrock Mermaid Brooch.
