RockLove Jewelry has carved out a niche in the accessory industry, creating high-quality jewelry inspired by iconic Disney characters. From Ursula to Anna and Elsa, RockLove has Disney fans covered.
Now, the company is introducing an incredible ‘Women of Star Wars’ collection, designed by RockLove CEO and designer Allison Cimino in collaboration with Ashley Eckstein, voice of Ahsoka Tano in the animated Star Wars: The Clone Wars series.
Cimino shared some of the inspiration behind the new jewelry line:
“The Star Wars galaxy is full of powerful women: honorable Jedi, fearsome warriors, and self-saving royalty.”
Both ladies recently sat down with StarWars.com to share details about the upcoming 4-piece Star Wars|RockLove Women of Star Wars collection, which launches this Thursday, August 27, 2020, at 9 AM PT (12 PM ET).
The first Ahsoka Tano inspired piece in this new Star Wars jewelry series is a bracelet that is designed to inspire wearers every time they put it on!
According to the StarWars.com article, the item:
..made from durable artisan brass, plated in polished silver, and hand-painted in premium enamel — is inscribed with the quote that starts the episode of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, “The Wrong Jedi.” It says: “Never give up hope, no matter how dark things seem.”
“This is my favorite “Fortune Cookie” from The Clone Wars and I feel that it perfectly represents Ahsoka,” Eckstein says. “To me, Ahsoka represents hope and light. Even in the darkest times, she is always looking toward the light and choosing to be hopeful. At the end of the episode, Ahsoka walked away from everything she knew because she believed that it was the right thing to do. This moment resonated so deeply with me and with fans all over the world. This mantra is the perfect reminder for the wearer to be like Ahsoka!”
The second piece inspired by Anakin Skywalker’s Padawan is this enamel medallion necklace, which bears an Ahsoka Tano quote on the back: “A new day, a new beginning.”
According to the StarWars.com interview, Eckstein said:
“This is one of my favorite Ahsoka quotes from Star Wars Rebels. It’s a reminder that each new day brings hope and a fresh start. This has become one of my personal mantras. I wanted to put this quote on the back of the necklace pendant to remind anyone who wears it that every new day is a gift!”
The next piece in the new female-centric Star Wars jewelry line pays homage to everyone’s favorite Princess General (and is this writer’s personal favorite item)!
Cimino explained why she chose to design this necklace featuring the Medal of Yavin, which was given to Han Solo and Luke Skywalker by Princess Leia in Star Wars: Episode I – A New Hope:
“The Medal of Yavin is an incredibly sentimental piece…a testament to bravery and heroism, to those bringing freedom and hope to the galaxy.”
She went onto explain the “Give Leia my love” quote on the back of the necklace, calling it:
“both a cheeky quote from Lando and a shared sentiment across all characters and fans of the Star Wars galaxy honoring the incomparable General Leia Organa.”
We begin by looking at the underside of The Armorer ring, which showcases the Mandalorian creed: “This Is the Way”
Cimino told StarWars.com:
“To include the quote was definitely a no brainer. However, the inspiration came from the character herself rather than the creed. The Armorer never removes her helmet. Her success is not influenced by beauty, but purely based on merit: her strength, leadership, and hard work.”
The upper section of The Armorer inspired ring features her helmet, which she never removes in true Mandalorian fashion.
Cimino shared a bit about the process of creating this detailed piece of Star Wars jewelry:
“This ring was a joy to create. We worked very hard perfecting the sculpt to look as much like the helmet as possible.”
