After all the candy rings we've seen, at last: something for the salty tooth.

Not that more candy's ever a bad thing, of course. All rings above by Japan's Rotari Parker (Momoko Fukaya & Yuri Aoki).

Please allow me to indulge in another set of gem-cut metal rings, this time from Japan's Yull (Yukiko Shimazaki). I love how being awry makes them wry; i.e., they're set askew on their bands, for an added level of humour.

The thought of exposed nerves really frays my own. But even in my unnerved state, I can admire this "Nerve Ending" series — literally nerves of steel — by Taiwanese artist Yufang Chi, who expresses a desire to "transcend [her] own body."

Visit her site for more woven metalwork.

I'm now rethinking that carful of gadgets I just hauled to the local recycler. Croatia's Djuvedj Djuvedjevich, real name Tomislav Zidar, plays lego with discarded electronics. Toasters, shavers, computers and more are the building blocks for these adorable critter rings!

Cultural identity is a running theme in the work of Thailand's Dr. Supavee Sirin-k-raporn — the PhD is in jewellery, so it's no surprise that her collections are more like concepts. Check out her exhibitions here; shown above are rings from "Ripple of Civilization : Japan."

When you were a kid, did you ever pour glue on your hands just for the fun of peeling it off when it dried? I think Belgium's Jelka Quintelier knows just what I'm talking about.
