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).

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.
Last week I posted a design for this Dr. Claw-inspired ring. I am pleased to announce you can now grab this at Shapeways for purchase (commission-free). Click here or the image to head to the listing. Available in US sizes 7, 8, 9, 10, and 11. Available in numerous materials as well.
Now you can give the gift that says I will get you next time, Gadget! NEXT TIME!
Argh. Nobody makes this. Not even those sketchy people on Etsy! This should be like, the top-selling ring in the whole world (for people 28 and older).
The main reason I am disappointed by this discovery: my henchmen have been really goofing around lately. I feel that if I wielded this ring, I can slam my fist down repeatedly and they’d pay attention and shake in their boots. I’m sure you can relate.
In all seriousness I am surprised this doesn’t exist. Even if Dr. Claw didn’t wear this ring, the ‘MAD’ brand is quite recognizable. Note to self: design a MAD hockey jersey. EDIT: I did.
UPDATE: This might be a reality one day, thanks to an intrepid reader with a 3D printer and a knowledge of making casts for jewelry. Keep your fingers crossed!
This edition of Geek Bling features the friendly neighborhood webhead, who is no stranger to necklaces/chains, but for some reason no one has made the chain itself the web, at least in this obvious a fashion.
The design and pose is based on the 60′s cartoon, which has now been reduced to fodder for internet memes. I have a soft spot for the poorly-animated series, because I feel it was the first ever motion comic (and likely intended as such), not a traditionally animated cartoon.
Nearly had a few of my past Geek Bling designs made, which I would have made available here like I did my hockey jerseys. But alas, can’t seem to find a willing jewelry maker. Hopefully one day I can arrange something for interested people.
