Q&A with Janet 
Janet, can you tell us what was it about Daughter of Smoke and Bone that inspired you to create this collection?
The short answer? Because I LOVED the book!  Lol The long answer is that it's completely character driven.  I love the characters. In the beginning I wanted to make jewelry for each character, but in the end I decided to make the jewelry to go with all the different elements of the book, Resurrection, what a parent would do for a child, how love conquers all.  It was very Dumbledore-ish, it made me realize that the characters really represented bigger issues and that inspired the jewelry. Some of it is very literal, like the wishbone, which signifies what a father would do for their child to keep them from getting hurt.  The wishbone is the heart of the book, it's Karou's coming of age, representing how things get darker in the book.
What is your favorite piece from the collection and why is it your favorite? 
Actually, I haven't made my favorite piece yet.  It's coming though! It's the hamsas.  I really wanted to include this piece in the collection, but it’s difficult to make because everyone knows what the hamsas is supposed to look like.  I want to make it very realistic, and hands are the most difficult to sculpt, to draw, and to create. I plan to have it completed and added to the collection by Valentine's Day. I wish I could share it you now!
What piece from the book would you want to add to the collection that you didn't get to make? 
I am working on adding a medallion of Brimstone to the collection.  It was a piece that was requested specifically by Laini Taylor, and we have discussed since the beginning. It is also set to be completed and added to the collection before Valentine's Day! Also, Guppies are also coming before Valentine's day!
Finally, is there any last thoughts or information that you’d like to leave your fans with?
I’m trying to make a smaller version of the wishbone, possibly as an earring.  I would like to know if this is something that fans would be interested in. So in the comments below, please tell me if this is something you’d like to see added to the collection!


  1. Tough choice but a tie between White Brass Adder Braclet and the Silver Wishbone Necklace. Not a big gold or brass fan, but do like the white brass and silver.
