Star Wars Kyber Crystal Necklace!
"The strongest stars have hearts of Kyber!" --Chirrut Îmwe
It's so good. It is a fabulous stand-alone story in the Star Wars saga.
It's sad and happy and wonderful!
To avoid a lot of spoilers, Jyn Orso's mom, Lyra Orso
gives Jyn a necklace with a kyber crystal and tells her to
"Trust the Force".
So let's take only 15 minutes to DIY a Kyber Crystal necklace just like Jyn's!
This is part of Craft Lightning Valentine Edition!
This is a great Valentine's day gift for that geek in your life!
but this is such a cool recreation!
A hot glue stick!!!
I know, sheer genius!
You will also need a sharp blade
and a cutting mat
and a lighter/fire
To assemble the necklace you'll need:
20 gauge wire
Start by cutting a piece of the glue stick (cold)
to 1.5 inches long.
Then cut the glue stick to a slight point.
Like you are sharpening a pencil with a blade.
(great for teens to make)
Then turn it over and make cut to a point on the other side.
They are not exactly symmetrical.
One side has a longer shaft and the other side is a tight point.
Like this beauty!
Just think of the crystal shape and go slow as you cut it.
go over the edges just slightly. This will give it a sheen and a smooth finish,
rather than cut lines and marks.
Then let it cool.
You can find all these supplies at any craft store.
You'll also want some jewelry pliers and a poker to make a hole in the crystal.
carefully bore a hole with the poker...a needle would work too.
Roll it around to enforce the hole.
I used about 20 inches of leather cording...depends on how tight you want it to fit.
Aren't you stunned!?
Super simple to make and only takes minutes!
These would be fantastic favors for a Star Wars party too!
I love when I can make awesome things with super inexpensive supplies.
