Not a Movie Review...

Ok, those of you that know my jewelry know I am a Twilight fan, and I saw the newest movie – Eclipse – this weekend.  It didn’t disappoint, I thought (as did the gaggle of 9 that I went with) it was a very good rendition of the book, although it had some differences, as all the movies thus far have.  This is not going to be a movie recommendation or review, either you like the Twilight books and movies or you don’t, and there are plenty of other reviewers out there that can do a better job than I can. I am absolutely in love with the soundtrack though, and it isn’t at all my normal taste of music, other than a few that have an 80’s reminiscent sound.  This soundtrack has introduced me to bands I’ve never heard before, and maybe I’ll like the rest of their music, maybe I won’t, but this collection is a totally unique experience and something I think I’ll be listening to for a while.   Here is the song list, each song title is a link to a page that plays the song in whole.  These are in order of the soundtrack, but I’m going to say listen to “Heavy In Your Arms” by Florence + The Machine, and “Chop and Change” by The Black Keys first.  Totally different songs, both of which are stuck in my head this weekend.  "Jacob's Theme" is a beautiful, haunting, piano piece not to be missed.

With You In My Head (Featuring The Black Angels) - Unkle
A Million Miles An Hour - Eastern Conference Champions
Life on Earth - Band of Horses
What Part of Forever - Cece Lo Green
Jacob's Theme - Howard Shore

Here's some pics of the bracelet I did after first reading the book "Eclipse", long before the movie came out.  Summit Entertainment thought I was a threat to their "officially licensed Twilight Saga" jewelry and made me take it down from the Etsy website. I think they are bullies...
 My version is all highest quality sterling silver with Swarovski© faceted AB Crystal Heart.  Nice, if I do say so myself. :-)

Happy 4th everyone!
