If any of you ladies would like a replica of the jappor snippet I gave to Catherine Taber at CV, contact me at toschestation@yahoo.com, and I can get you in contact with the artist who made it.

No two are alike - each is hand-carved. They come with both the cord from TPM and the chain from ROTS.

Yeah I got one from either the same artist or one very close to whoom you speak Matt. I gave it to an old friend, I don't know whats happened to it since but she sure loved it when she got it. The work was perfect I might add. I've made one or two myself and they turned out ok. But the one you speak of is pretty flawless IMO

Hmmm. Maybe you're right, Jason.

The ones currently on ebay look like really bad in comparison!

With the proper weathering, the first one could be awesome. The second one...not so much. Confused The thing to remember when wearing these with Ep3 costumes, it should be on a metal chain, not leather like Ani gave her originally.

Here's the screen version:

It looks like Catherine wore my gift at the LA Clone Wars screening last night:

I don't sell them, but I can get you in contact with the artist that does make them. Let me know.

Some video shot by Ashley Eckstein at the screening in LA of Catherine wearing the necklace, with Nika Futterman (Asajj Ventress).

Look for the two jedi sneaking into the shot near the end. Wink

Does anyone know a price range on these? I'd love to have one, but like everyone, I'm a little tight on cash since starting the Padme Refugee Gown a couple of months ago.

Just an update -

The woman who makes the snippets just had a delicate emergency surgery recently, and is recovering at home. It was thought to be serious, and may still be. She has to take the next few months easy and wait for more test results, meaning it may be a while until she gets back to making them, but if you are interested, I will pass it on to her.

I will post updates as they come.

Thanks!
