The Forks Forest Giveaway

Back in the summer, you may remember that Gracious Rain threw a huge bash for the opening night of Eclipse. It was wild, wonderful, midnight fun and truly and unforgettable experience. One of the perks of this party–for me–was getting to know some of the amazingly talented artists who provided prizes for all the giveaways that evening.

Mockingjay” Pendant

One of those artists is Tena, a new friend who actually lives in Forks, Washington—you know, where Twilight takes place—and has her own Etsy shop called The Forks Forest. She makes incredible jewelery and has just added a few very interesting things that I really want to tell you about. Here’s the story…

Forks High School

Remember–in the Twilight series–all the scenes that took place at Forks High School? Now, of course, the movie was actually shot on a set replica of the real school, but still–this is what it looks like.

Anyway, this last July, 2010 the original 1925 Forks High School building was torn down to make way for a new Forks High School building project.

Tena sent me local newspaper articles showing the progress of the demolition–but here’s the good part.

She and her husband carefully sifted through the rubble…

and found some bricks and brass pipes and floor boards and then…

did some pretty dang creative things with them. Check this out–

The wood used to make this box came from the original Forks High School gymnasium floor.  Can you believe it? Seriously, if you know a true-blue Twilight fan wouldn’t they just go crazy over this stuff? It’s amazing and up close–it’s really beautiful.

Forks High School Copper Tag Pendant

The Forks Forest is sponsoring a Gracious Rain giveaway for this lovely necklace made from up-cycled copper pipe from the Forks High School building.  The copper tag hangs from a sparkling square Spartan Blue crystal and 20 inch copper rope chain. Tag measures 1 & 3/8 x 5/8 inch.

An absolute one of a kind treasure for any twilight fan.
