Shoot That Book: New Necklace


Shoot That Book combines my passion for books and my tendency to become trigger happy with a camera. My lack of photography skills is compensated by my enthusiasm. Basically, I like taking pictures of books.

I posted about bookish necklaces a couple of months ago and I bought a new one from Forever21 that I think can be included in the pile even though it’s not directly connected with books. Check it out, the man in the illustration is holding the pendant in his hands:

I love what’s written on the pendant – “Create. Imagine. Inspire.” – because I think those words are applicable to reading although I would have loved it more if the word “read” was included. It’s not obvious but the words are written in purple so it’s cuter in person. Here’s a closer look (and yes, I placed the pendant right beside the word “book” for this shot):

I love accessories – necklaces, earrings and bracelets – and I think I’d be tempted to buy literary-related items whenever I come across them. It’s another retail weakness aside from books.

  1. I love this necklace too! Agreed, it can definitely be related to books (both writing and reading), but is great for my work, too!


    • I kind of didn’t read the rest of the entry because I was too busy geeking out. Ooops.

    • I was waiting for someone to comment about the book that I used as background for this picture and look, that was the only thing you noticed. 😛 I’m only in the first few chapters but I’m glad I’m finally reading this since I bought my copy in 2007.

  3. Pretty! I’ve been looking for a book pendant for a while now but it’s kind of elusive. Or maybe I’m just too cheap and I refuse to look in more expensive shops. Hm, now to add that kind of necklace on my Christmas wish list. 😀

    • Yeah, bookish accessories are elusive. Some of the ones that I have were customized by Multiply sellers. But this one wasn’t that expensive at just P245, which is a lot cheaper than necklaces from Accessorize. Although F21 runs out of stocks fairly quickly so I don’t think they’d still have this by December. 😛

  4. Oh, purple letters! That would be striking. Speaking of bookish necklaces, I saw this link to a DIY tutorial for a knockoff of this stacked book necklace from Anthropologie on Tumblr the other day (@f***yeahbookarts). Isn’t it so chic? I’m inspired. I’m totally going to make it. Maybe as a gift, but maybe just for me. 😀

    • That Anthropologie necklace is pretty! I’m sure you can follow the DIY tutorial and come up with your own version, I remember how you made the book clutch. That would be awesome. You should keep it for yourself though and maybe just make another one as a gift. 😀

  5. Hey, it’s Richard Cufari’s illustrations for the Perilous Gard! That’s Randall, isn’t it? Glad to see that you’re finally reading the book. I still have a soft spot for Christopher Heron even after all these years. 🙂

    I think my sister might have that pendant. It looks really familiar.

    • Why am I not surprised that you know the artist for this book? Yep, it’s Randal. Just went past the point in the book with this illustration. I haven’t had much time to read this weekend because I wasn’t feeling well so I mostly slept.

      LOL ask her if she got it from Forever21.

Comments are like chocolate. :) Maraming salamat / thank you! I try my best to reply to all the comments on my blog.
