It’s time to start penning those Christmas lists and hunting for early deals to get ahead of the retail madness of the upcoming season. If you’re trying to order special gifts from individuals around the world–like from one of our favorite websites ever, Etsy–now is the time to get orders in to make sure there is plenty of time to get the things you want. In case you were planning to put me on your list, I’m making it easy this year. Right here are four elegant and literary pieces that will be just perfect under my tree. (Pay attention, husband o’ mine!!!)

bookfiendEtsy store BookFiend is one of my very favorites and has been since I first discovered the site. The shop is vast and includes an impressive array of designs for necklaces, bracelets, earrings, key chains and more. In addition, these styles come in a variety of materials which include acrylic, stainless steel, sterling silver, 14kt gold, wood and leather. Pre-determined literary and custom quotes can be elegantly engraved into these materials for a look that represents sophistication, education and whimsy. There are so many I’m not even able to list them all. But here are a few of my favorites:

Though she be but little…” Shakespeare Quote Engraved Bracelet with Accent

I like to think this particular quote from my favorite play (A Midsummer Night’s Dream) by The Bard describes me perfectly.


She is too fond of books…” Alcott Quote Engraved Necklace with Accents

I personally know a few ladies (some of whom can be found on this very site) who could wear this as their badge of honor.

Lord what fools…” Shakespeare Quote Engraved Bracelet

‘Tis so very true. We are indeed fools, for love, for money, for power, for a great many things. But also, for Shakespeare.


I’ll Love You Forever…” Children’s Book Quote Engraved Necklace with Birth Stone Accent

The classic book, Love You Forever by Robert Munsch, has made me cry more times than I’m truly comfortable admitting. But I love it still. Since becoming a mom, I have come to understand it as I never did before. This piece is a beautiful expression of the text and the sentiment behind it.


And just in case you’re not completely in love with this shop yet, let’s look at a few more:

So, take to the comments and tell me… If you were going to get me something from BookFiend, what would it be? Just kidding! Tell me your favorite literary quote and why you love it. What’s your favorite way to represent it? Jewelry? Shirt? Tattoo? I’d love to hear from you.


  1. Hi! I just found your blog today and loved this post about lovely literary jewelry! It caught my attention especially because I’m reading some Louisa May Alcott books for a challenge this month, and am quite in an Alcott and-or “Little Women” mood. Love this stuff!

    • Welcome to Sistergeeks, Tarissa! Thanks so much for checking us out. I’m glad you enjoyed this post. I adore most of the things from this shop. Your challenge sounds quite interesting. How many books will you be reading to accomplish your goal?


      • I’m reading 3 books for the Alcott challenge this month. “An Old Fashioned Girl” by Louisa May Alcott herself…. “March” by Geraldine Brooks (fictional story about the March girls’ father)…. and a devotional “Louisa May Alcott: Illuminated by the Message”. I’m enjoyed this beautiful literature for my summer break!
