Happy Star Wars Day! Here’s a little tidbit connecting my home country to Star Wars.
The necklace and bracelet that Leia wore at the end of A New Hope…
Both the necklace and bracelet are still in production, but as high-end design they’re quite expensive. (The similar but lighter weight necklace Galactic Peaks shows its pedigree in the price tag as well.) Those that feel handy with clay can use these DIY instructions by Kathy S. at Kay Dee Collection.
A friend wore a Planetoid Valleys for a genre event over twenty years ago. I remember being very impressed that she had been able to get one from abroad – this was before I discovered that the necklace was actually Finnish. Now I’m impressed that she found out about it in those just-barely-there-Internet days!
Note: I wasn’t paid or perked to mention this; just passing along a good thing.
