Japanese artist hand-crafts beautiful ‘Star Wars’ lightsaber rings
This fourth-generation ikebana artist took time out from flower arranging to make jewelry-loving geeks happy.
Takayas Mizuno has spent years painstakingly perfecting the art of ikebana, aka flower arranging. But the Japanese designer also has a passion for hand-crafting gorgeous geeky jewelry, from custom engagement rings to Doctor Who rings to H.R. Giger-inspired rings.
Now, Mizuno has allowed the Force to flow through him and created a set of rings inspired by Star Wars lightsabers.
The rings are made from sterling silver and Swarovski zirconias, with each ring showcasing a different facet of the famous swords.
“I’ve created a set of silver and Swarovski Zirconia lightsaber-inspired rings to pay homage to my favorite galaxy far, far away,” Mizuno wrote on Facebook earlier this month. “During the design process, I wanted to make sure each ring’s color accurately corresponded to the crystal that powered its lightsaber in the series.”
On his company blog, Mizuno added that each of the rings’ colored crystals had been infused with their respective sides of the Force—light and dark.
Which ring will you choose to wear?
