Je t'aime Boutique

In December, Lionsgate announced it had teamed with China Glaze to create a collection of "Hunger Games" nail polish. The colors? Well, one to represent each District in the country of Panem. And that was just the beginning.
The studio has also worked with Cafe Press on licensed designs. The more than 250 products include T-shirts, bags and water bottles.
Our favorite products are found on etsy.com, designed by fans around the world. Search "The Hunger Games" and you'll find jewelry that features "Peeta's pearl" and District 12 cupcake toppers. Charlotte, N.C.-based Etsy designer Donna Skibbie, who operates on the site as "Je t'aime Boutique," came up with a glass orb Reaping ball necklace (above), based on the selection process for the Games. "As I read, many ideas began to come to mind," Skibbie said via email. "But it was the scene from the Reaping which, to me, seemed like such a pivotal moment in the series. Deciding who gets chosen for the Games and essentially, who may live or die." Each side of the glass ball is flanked by a gunmetal filigree disc and a black hematite bead, representing the coal miners of District 12, according to the description.
