>Looking for gifts to buy a booklover this holiday? NYC designer Janet Cadsawan has the goods!

>It wouldn’t be fitting to do a feature on New York and not mention that my dear friend, jewelry designer, Janet Cadsawan’s studio is in New York City. With all the hype of gearing up for holiday shopping, I wanted to not only formally introduce you to an exceptional and creative person, but also give you some shopping ideas for all the booklovers in your life.

Janet Cadsawan’s philosophy is that jewelry is magic adorned. She designs one-of-a-kind talismans, fine jewelry and supernatural baubles. Her pieces are showcased in both art galleries and fine jewelry stores. Born through her passion for nature and architecture, her pieces are like miniature sculptures.
She uses local craftsmen to create her jewelry and she continues to recycle her recycled metal for her collections. Lover of small and large animals, she lives on a farm in Greenwich, CT and her jewelry studio is in New York City.
Now for the shopping ideas…
For the True Blood Enthusiast and lovers of Charlaine Harris’ Sookie Stackhouse series…How about the complete 2nd season of TB and a Thor’s Hammer necklace to remind the fan of the Viking flashback scenes in which Janet actually created pieces worn in the show.

Perhaps your book lover is a HUGE Eric Lover from the Sookie Stackhouse Series books…why not give her a token to remind her of the Viking’s favorite pet name for Sookie?

“My Lover” Min Alskare necklace

Maybe you are shopping for a young adult or a lover of young adult fiction? If you know someone who loves vampire books why not introduce them to Richelle Mead’s Vampire Academy series? Maybe your Young Adult is already a fan of Vampire Academy…then the VA collection is the PERFECT gift!

We love Ilona Andrews’ Magic Series here at Paperback Dolls…if you are shopping for a Urban Fantasy lover that has not read the Kate Daniel’s books by these authors then definitely add them to your list but why not add a special token to go along with the books…

Lion’s claw necklace

There is NO denying that Stieg Larsson’s Millennium trilogy was the series to read this year. If you are shopping for someone who was a fan of the late Swedish author’s work than look no further! The Millennium Dragon necklace by Cadsawan design is a must have!

The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo necklace

How about something for the Urban Fantasy/Paranormal Romance lovers??? Know anyJeaniene Frost fans? No? Well her Dark Huntress series is a steamy must read on any UF fan’s list and Cadsawan design has created pieces inspired by Frost’s books….

R&B silver and pink topaz earrings


Both tween Desilula and myself are HUGE Rachel Caine fans. As a matter of fact I gave Caine’s Morganville books to everyone in my family that loves to read last Christmas. They were hooked. This year I think I may continue with the theme and give them Morganville inspired jewelry…


Amelie Bracelet & Morganville Dragon Necklace

There are even more pieces available beginning this weekend and if you check out Janet Cadsawan Jewelry + Design on Facebook you will find a special offer on the Rachel Caine collection as well.

If you have any sea and animal lovers that are into helping preserve the ocean and the creatures that dwell in it’s depth than I strongly encourage you to think about getting them the book Sea Voices by Duffy & Elizabeth Laul Healey.This book is a beautifully colored, hardcover that features a passionate group of ocean warriors. Comprised of people from surfers to scientists and from all over the globe, it’s purpose is to unite people from different walks of life, for one common cause…the health of the Global Ocean. 
Sea Voices
This book paired with one of Cadsawan’s special pieces in her Fluke Collection is sure to overjoy anyone (men, women and children) who feels strongly about preserving the ocean. Janet’s Fluke collection is very special to my heart, and one that my whole family sports and that I am most proud to wear myself.

The concept is quite simple. Cadsawan designs uses 100% recycled silver and gold in the creation of this jewelry to help save our environment and the proceeds from the Fluke Collection help the whales prosper in their environment through IFAW.

All pieces are available for purchase at http://www.cadsawan.com/. There are new creations for men and women and all items can be customized to suit your (or the person you are shopping for) tastes.
I know what is on my shopping list;)
Happy Holidays Everyone!
