D.I.Y. – Star Wars Jewelry

While shopping, I came across Star Wars epoxy stickers. Too cute to pass up, I chucked them in my cart. Once home, I decided that instead of using these all willy-nilly I would make some adorable jewelry with them! I had the supplies on hand but they can be purchased cheaply at any craft store.

First: I cut out each sticker, leaving the plastic attached to the back. These particular stickers didn’t peel easily from their plastic sheet to begin with so I didn’t have any trouble with them peeling apart on their own. (Should I encounter a future problem with the sticky side of the sticker being exposed, I’ll put a coat of clear nail polish on it.)

Second: To create a hole in each sticker for a metal loop to go through, I heated up a sewing needle and carefully pierced the top of each sticker. (The same method I use in my guitar pick jewelry post)

Finally: I decided which pieces would become earrings and which would become necklace pendants and attached the necessary metal rings and pieces.

The necklace pendants can be worn on any chain or rope but I decided to use some heavy duty, glittery ribbon that I recently found on clearance at JoAnn’s to make chokers a la 1994. I used the sewing needle again to create holes for the metal rings to loop through (attaching the clasps and pendants).

Here’s some pics of what I’ve made so far and my gigantic zit:
