 I read The Crown's game a while back and enjoyed it so much I became inspired to create a very distinctive peace of jewelry to commemorate the novel. I searched around for the perfect pendant and then one day it was right before my eyes and I instantly knew how I would use it. I collected a few different necklace strands and began to work and in one afternoon The Crown's Game necklace was created.

I found this two-headed eagle and knew exactly what I was going to do with it.

As part of the Tsar's Guard I wanted to display my work in progress with my badge to show how it worked out.

An up close look at pendant with a vintage watch face that I placed a picture of the book inside.

This is the final look of the necklace with a few of my favorite necklace strands used to complete the look.
About the Book:

Title: THE CROWN’S GAME

Author: Evelyn Skye

Release Date: May 17th, 2016

Pages: 416

Publisher: Balzer+Bray

Formats: Hardcover, eBook


Vika Andreyeva can summon the snow and turn ash into gold. Nikolai Karimov can see through walls and conjure bridges out of thin air. They are enchanters—the only two in Russia—and with the Ottoman Empire and the Kazakhs threatening, the Tsar needs a powerful enchanter by his side.

And so he initiates the Crown’s Game, an ancient duel of magical skill—the greatest test an enchanter will ever know. The victor becomes the Imperial Enchanter and the Tsar’s most respected adviser. The defeated is sentenced to death.

Raised on tiny Ovchinin Island her whole life, Vika is eager for the chance to show off her talent in the grand capital of Saint Petersburg. But can she kill another enchanter—even when his magic calls to her like nothing else ever has?

For Nikolai, an orphan, the Crown’s Game is the chance of a lifetime. But his deadly opponent is a force to be reckoned with—beautiful, whip smart, imaginative—and he can’t stop thinking about her.

And when Pasha, Nikolai’s best friend and heir to the throne, also starts to fall for the mysterious enchantress, Nikolai must defeat the girl they both love . . . or be killed himself.

As long-buried secrets emerge, threatening the future of the empire, it becomes dangerously clear . . . the Crown’s Game is not one to lose.
