This is part II of my Christmas present that came along with my Mortal Instruments Charm bracelet. My friend also bought this off Ebay, but for only a dollar, which is extremely cheap and affordable! The chain is quite long, but can easily be shortened.
ISABELLE LIGHTWOOD'S RUBY PENDANT
This is my entire Shadowhunter Chronicles collection so far
I own double copies of The Infernal Devices due to the fact that I had previously owned two large print editions of Clockwork Angel and Clockwork Prince and required the final novel Clockwork Princess to complete my collection. My sister bought me the final book as a gift, but it was the small print edition, and was unable to return it as she had lost the receipt. I had still planned on purchasing the large edition of Clockwork Princess, but when I went back to Target, there were none left available for purchase. As the months went by I realised that I would never get the chance to purchase the edition I wanted as they were no longer being printed that particular size, so I had to suck it up and purchase another copy of Clockwork Angel and Clockwork Prince once again but a smaller edition. About a year later, I happened to return to the same Target (where the Clockwork Princess I had wished to purchase dissappeared) and found the missing large print Clockwork Princess. I'm guessing that packed it away only to finally decide to bring it out back on the shelves. And that is the 'exciting' story of how I ended up with double copies of The Infernal Devices.
I only own the first book to the manga series of The Infernal Devices and wish to purchase the rest if I ever get the chance!
I downright refuse to go near the comic book version of The Mortal Instruments.
There are two different versions of Tessa's clockwork angel that I own. I paid my friend Holly to order me one from eBay back when the cheapest was around $20. Now the cheapest is only a dollar, which is definitely worth it in that case. The one from Ebay is made from a low quality metal, and I found that after months of wearing it and keeping it stored in a velvet pouch, it started to collect heaps of grime and change to a permanent pinkish colour and some parts would darken to a dark brown with splotchy spots. The other clockwork angel is purchased from HebelDesign, which I absolutely adore! You can read my previous review I wrote which includes extra pictures.
One of my other friends Catherine got bought me the signed copy of City of Heavenly Fire for my birthday which means a lot to me as The Shadowhunter Chronicles is my favourite series of all time and has been for over 2 years! Inside the cover jacket was an extra poster.
Hanging from the cover of City of Heavenly Fire is my runes charm bracelet which Enara got for me last Christmas. You can view my previous review I wrote which includes extra pictures.
I bought my shadowhunter family rings from HebelDesign as well. I own the Blackthorn, Carstairs, Fairchild, Herondale, Lightwood, Morgenstern and Wayland. family rings. I mainly wear my Morgenstern ring as it looks gorgeous on my middle finger, and happens to be the smallest ring out of the seven. I'll be posting a review of my purchase of the family rings in a few weeks including close ups of each ring!
I made the brown box with the Angelic Power rune from wood back in year 8 as part of my school project. It took a month or two to complete, and I absolutely love it! (Though I regret writing 'Since 1234' on the box as I had stuffed it up by using a thicker marker) The box has a rough feel to it with a couple of scratches and uneven ridges including a few dents to give off an ancient feel.
On top of the bookmarks are these cute little rune charms that I also purchased from Hebeldesign. You can read my previous review I wrote which includes extra pictures.
The bookmarks are printed on canvas (which I my dad did for me). I use them all time, and they make really good bookmarks as the do not break or bend as they are floppy.
I love my collectors edition of The Shadowhunter's Codex that I purchased for half price. I love this special edition as the book is nestled in a gorgeous soft-touch slipcase with gold foil and embossing on the case. Inside the book is also soft-touched and foiled with gilt edges, a golden headband, and a golden ribbon-perfect for a studying Shadowhunter to mark their place.
The short comics by Cassandra Jean in The Bane Chornicles is gorgeous as always, as too are the Shadowhunter Tarot cards. You can read my previous review I wrote with includes an extra picture,
I seriously overdid it with the Shaodwhunter Tarot cards though... Oh well!

Tessa's Clockwork Angel
TESSA'S CLOCKWORK ANGEL
I bought this amazing master piece from Hebeldesign for only $97 (which is quite expensive, but totally worth it!). It is a must for every fan of Cassandra Clare's best selling series The Infernal Devices (Prequel to The Mortal Instruments). It is handmade from bronze and copper with actual clock gears to finish the authentic look. Unfortunately it does not tick!
I remember the nine days of suspense after this marvelous piece was shipped (to Australia). I would check the whereabouts of my clockwork angel everyday, using the tracking code supplied. I remember the Friday morning when I checked to see whether my pendant had arrived, and by golly gosh it had! I ran all the way down the hill to my mailbox (6:20 on a cold winters morning, still in my pajamas. Don't judge! I was exhilarated) and practically tore open the package in my excitement when I retrieved it. It was daintier than I had expected, and a reasonable size. I love it with all my heart and still can't believe to this day that it is finally mine. The bronze allows the pendant to tarnish giving it an aged look, with adds a nice touch (though I hate attempting at trying to clean all the tiny corners that I can't reach with my Sunshine polishing cloth that I also purchased from Hebeldesign). Though I am in love with this pendant, mine happens to have this one little demonic imperfection... That I hate. *glares at imperfection hauntingly*
But hey! It's handmade, so of course each pendant will have it's tiny little imperfections, some just bigger than others.
P.S. I have never seen anyone post a picture of the Clockwork Angel's back, so I thought I'd be the first!
HERMIONE'S TIME TURNER
My friend bought me this knock off of Hermione's Time Turner from Ebay for only a dollar. The writing on the edges is acceptable, but what do you expect when you buy something so cheap? The inscriptions on the Time Turner itself says "I mark the hours every one, Nor have I yet outrun the Sun. My use and value unto you are gauged by what you have to do."
I got this cute miniature pocket watch back in 2013 from my friend for Christmas. It is so cute and beautiful and easy to get from both Ebay and Esty. I love wearing it around my neck from time to time, and never miss the chance to use it to tell the time. It's a shame that they didn't feature the watch in the movie as it is gorgeous!
