Blogger of the Month: Sykin




Sykin’s Twilight


As a Twilight fan, and having just seen the 3rd movie of this series, Eclipse, I thoroughly enjoyed Sykin’s shop: http://sykin.etsy.com/, as everything in her shop is related to the Twilight series, including a card with the Twilight Eclipse symbol (above).

In between designing her Twilight jewelry, Sykin is a working mother with two small children, Kyler and Emma. Sykin soon hopes to start designing clothes and other handcrafted sewing items to add to her shop.


As I browsed through her shop, I choose these few items which are a part of her Twilight theme. For those of you who know the series, you can then just envision Bella wearing this unique bracelet of topaz with black beads and a crystal heart, probably given to her by her vampire boyfriend, Edward; as she in turn places this long silver necklace with topaz beads of the color of the eyes of the Vampire, around Edwards’s neck as a sign of her longing to be one of them.




Although conflicted between her love of a Vampire and Jacob, a Native American boy who can shape-shift into a werewolf who is always there to protect her, Bella will probably carry this key ring with a skull and red heart which Jacob gives her for protection. Skyin’s card with the werewolf howling with the full moon, would be the perfect symbolism for his tribe.






While Bella’s feelings are confused between these two rivals, her worst enemy to fear is Victoria, the leader of the young Vampires. Her fiery presence would be enhanced by these Vampire blood red hoop earrings.


Sykin will also take personal requests for her jewelry, or graphic and web designs. You can view some of her past work of custom items, such as her Bella bracelets with matching earrings, along with some other very interesting items.
