Game of Thrones Mosaic

So, my man is obsessed with the Game of Thrones. Most guys are, naturally. They are thrilled with the violence scenes, the powerful lines and basically, everything about this book - TV series. Oh, and, coming soon, video game. Of course.

Being a Lord of the Rings fan, I just cannot persuade myself to actually like the Game of Thrones. Not enough to make a piece of jewelry, at least. It would just be 'going with the flow' for me. You know, not an honest thing to do. I made a Game of Thrones bookmark for my guy, because he asked nicely (!), and that's as far as I want to get.

But there's nothing stopping me or you from admiring other people's work on Etsy, that is inspired by the Game of Thrones. I think their work is brilliant!

Fantastic work, people! Keep it up!


  1. Oh, Thanks so much Demi! Im so glads that our photoshoot in freezing cold was worth to be here :))))
    Unpatiently waiting for april and new series - as does your man, Im sure!

  2. Lovely post!!!!
    My bf is also obsessed with that :)

  3. Thank you for your comments, girls! Marta, indeed that is a BRILLIANT photoshoot :) Anastasia, I love your blog -I'm definitely following!

  4. OMG that necklace by the famed Marta of Magpiesshop is stunning!

    not to mention the incredible photograph.

  5. I adore the books and must say that they do a great job on the TV series in regards to following the story.
    Being a LOTR fan should not stop you reading these books.
    Its the brilliant work of another fantastic author :)

    Thank you for including my little necklace :)

    1. Well, Dina, I tend to agree with Tati and her comment below... ;)
      You can't compare the two. Anyway, I think you're right about the fact that I can steal the books at some point and get down to reading them. I suppose at least that would be enjoyable.

  6. I have seen the series, I liked it but I don't think it is comparable to LOFR. I am LOFR fan myself and they are totally 2 different things :) Game of thrones is boyish a lot. Strategy, swords, war, women, dirty language. Period. :)

    I love your picks especially that leather ipad case, fantastic!

    1. Yes, I have seen it too. How could I not? ;) hahahahaaa
      I totally agree with you. I also believe that comparing the Game of Thrones to the Lord of the Rings is literature blasphemy! LOL...

  7. I feel like an alien among all you guys! I have no idea what you are talking about! :) And I have never heard the Game of Thrones before! lol! But I have to say, I am a big fan of Tolkien... since my very little... I think I read Hobbit when I was in elementary school... hmmmmm... 20 years ago!! OMG! I am old! hahahahaha

  8. Really? You don't like "Game of Thrones"? :)
    I adore it though I have to recognise that it's not comparable to "Lord of the rings".
    The finds you've posted inspired by "Game of Thrones" are amazing.

    p.s: Me and my man are wearing the ring of Lord of the rings :)
