Happy May The Fourth!
This is technically a choke chain (oh I slay me) that features a Jabba The Hutt pendant. There are a few Jabba necklaces out there — much to my surprise — but all lacking the dark humor seen in the design above.
Such a necklace is destined to be worn by geeky girls you do not trifle with. Or worn by those who are a slave to fashion (okay okay I’ll stop).

It is based on the Letterman jackets the guys wore in the film. And yes, I am holding out hope 80′s Tees makes some Letterman jackets. As far as I can tell, these kind of jackets aren’t really prevalent here in Canada, but for Red Dawn heck yeah I’d love a replica.
A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of showcasing a few pieces made by Brandi Burnette, who brought a couple of my designs to life. Afterwards I offered her a few fun suggestions regarding Spawn, Sonic the Hedgehog, and the AT-AT from Star Wars, and she went ahead and made them! Very cool. And she has more on the way. You can find them here.
If you’re looking for custom (geeky or non-geeky) jewelry, she can help you out. Just contact her through the Stitched & Strung Etsy store front. Her prices are a steal. Seriously you should feel bad for placing an order.
I also happened to receive the Spider-Man and Kryptonite necklaces that were pictured previously, and I have to say the pictures don’t do them justice! The Kryptonite necklace is perfect. And the Spidey pendant looks really cool in person. It is small (only 1 and 3/4 inches wide), very detailed, and is translucent — much like a stain-glass window.
I highly recommend grabbing one. I find they go very well with a chain purse and matching-color high heels or belt. I mean, uh, at least that’s what they tell me.
A necklace based on the Snowspeeder and its grapple line, pretty straightforward. You could have it loop around your neck a few times! Could also work as a bracelet or bolo tie.
Last June I posted a Spider-Man necklace design , where I felt the main focus of the item would be the chain doubling as Spidey’s webbing, something that wasn’t done previously (much to my surprise). The design was well-received back then, and it immediately caught the attention of Brandi Burnette, a California native who now calls Lake Gaston, North Carolina home.
She decided to tackle the design, and I’m pleased to share the final results with you, and it looks terrific! Or should I say amazing? Spectacular even? You get the idea.
As you can she completed a very ornate necklace design that captures the look of a Todd McFarlane-era Spider-Man, especially with the webbing. Ladies: if you are wearing this you’ll definitely have to tell the guys (several times) “My eyes are up here.”
She’s selling it for $25 at her Etsy store currently, so grab one while you can. And guys: this would be cool to hang on your wall or window.
After the Spidey necklace I then asked Brandi if she would be interested in making a Kryptonite necklace I posted a few years ago , which was inspired by the chain Superman wore in the first film. She also tackled that with relative ease, and you can see the finished result above. You can head to the listing here to grab one, and they retail for $12. What? Only twelve bucks?! Sweet. It’s a perfect gift for anyone (does not actually weaken people, fyi). Lead-lined box sold separately.
If you are looking for Spider-Man in a different pose or appearance, Brandi can help you. The Kryptonite necklace also has various chain link and gem sizes available.
They both look great and I cannot wait to get my hands on them! Special thanks to Brandi for making these, they are very cool.
Very surprised these aren’t a thing: wrist watches based on wrestling belts. I mean, a watch looks like a tiny belt essentially, so why not? Wrestling belts are also very bling-y, making them perfect for luxury watches (or fake watches that Jabronis can afford). All seems like a no-brainer to me.
Wrestling fans would love these, but you know who else they would be great for? Any group of guys where a current champ is involved, like a fantasy league or office pool (e.g. top salesman); the reigning champ gets to wear the watch!
This design has a flip cover, which would leave the belt face intact, making it look like a small replica. While a flip cover is my personal preference, I would not be opposed to having the watch face or timer embedded into the belt buckle itself.
So many possibilities for this watch type: WWE. WWF, WCW, NWO, heck, even Ted Dibiase’s million dollar belt.
