R2-KT isn’t any ol’ astromech. She eventually became part of Star Wars canon, but her existence started when 501st Legion founder Albin Johnson came up with the idea of making a pink astromech for his daughter Katie who was battling brain cancer. R2-KT was eventually built by a master builder in the R2 Builders Club, Jerry Greene.
This intricate and pretty new droid ring by talented jewelry maker Paul Michael Design incorporates pink and light blue gems to emulate R2-KT’s appearance. It’s highly detailed like all his other work, and man, it has a gorgeous design and palette.
