Contest Giveway: Janet Cadsawan Necklace worn on True Blood

During True Blood’s final season 7, the new character, Mr. Gus wears a necklace that was designed by Janet Cadsawan for Alma Katsu’s book series “The Taker”. In 2011, Kristin Bauer van Straten and Janet Cadaswan teamed up to make a necklace to sell for charity, read about it here.


Ms. Katsu has decided to give away one of the necklaces to a True Blood fan.

She writes:

As you may be aware, Janet Cadsawan is the designer of jewelry for many literary properties and several of her pieces have appeared on True Blood. Janet designed a necklace for my books (The Taker Trilogy) and told me that it’s being worn by Will Yun Lee (Mr. Gus) this season. Since I’m a big True Blood fan, I decided to hold this contest to celebrate this.

A little background, in case you’re unfamiliar with The Taker books: they’re published by Simon & Schuster in the US and Random House UK, and have been published in about a dozen languages worldwide. They’ve been compared a lot to early Anne Rice and Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander, and Charlaine Harris has been kind enough to blurb the books.
