Bead 1: A green trident on a black field. Commemorates Percy being claimed by his father Poseidon, and his subsequent trip into the underworld. (Book 1, The Lightning Thief)
Bead 2: A golden ram’s fleece on a blue field. Celebrates the journey over the sea to recover the golden fleece from a Cyclops. (Book 2, The Sea of Monsters)
Bead 3: Daedalus’s labyrinth, in Grecian pottery style. Chronicles the half-bloods’ journey through the labyrinth. (Book 4, The Battle of the Labyrinth)
Bead 4: The Empire State Building, surrounded by Greek letters. Mourns the loss of all the half-bloods that died at the battle in New York. (Book 5, The Last Olympian)
To clarify, there is no bead for Book 3 (the Titan’s Curse) since it is the only book that takes place in the winter, and campers receive their beads at the end of summer. Also, the lettering around bead 4 should be camper’s names, but space constraints forced the issue, and Greek letters were used instead. This necklace was complimented by Mr. Riordan himself at a book signing!
This four-bead necklace is the one worn by Percy at the end of the final book in the first series, "The Last Olympian."
Another option for this necklace is the style worn by Percy during the fourth book (The Battle of the Labyrinth). He only has the first three beads (since the battle of Olympus hasn't happened yet), but he also has a sand dollar attached to his necklace. Since this version only has three beads along with the sand dollar charm, it is slightly cheaper than the completed four bead necklace. Charm is shown in last photo, and is not available in sterling silver.
The beads are strung on a leather cord with a handmade copper fastener. Each bead is hand-painted, so there may be slight variations in the images, but all should look very, very close to the picture provided. All images are repeated around the other side of the bead. Default length is 19", but if you would like the necklace longer or shorter, please let me know in the PayPal comments.
The beads are strung on a black or brown (shown) leather cord with a lobster clasp fastener made of base metals. The color of the cord is your choice, but it is described as black in the books. Each bead is painted with a gloss to prevent paint chipping, but may not be waterproof.
Also available are sterling silver findings for both versions of the necklace. These are denoted in the variations listing with the symbol "SS". Please ask all questions before ordering. Photos show the Heroes of Olympus necklace with brown cord. Sand dollar charm for the Last Olympian necklace is made from base metals.
