Regardless of whether you're Team Edward or Team Jacob, you'll want to sink your teeth into these decadent jewelry design ideas. Inspired by "Twilight," the popular vampire book and film series, the intriguing jewelry pieces are certain to encourage trendy accessory lines that will be eaten up by Twihards.

Some of the Twilight-inspired designs are literal interpretations of Bella's jewelry, like the charm bracelet featuring a wolf Bella received from Jacob, to which Edward added a diamond heart. Other jewelry pieces convey a Twilight story or concept such as Design Idea B89U featuring a painted black onyx focal with a woman sleeping, a sterling silver eye bead and a topaz crystal. This piece represents Edward's sentiment of Bella: "I like watching you sleep." The topaz crystal symbolizes the color of Edward's eyes.

Make the most of the Twilight phenomenon by creating jewelry pieces inspired by the story and characters, and be ready to show them off by mid-November 2011 when the next "Twilight" film installment, "Breaking Dawn," materializes in movie theaters.
