I don't know which is neater: these cool glass rings, or the fact that they were made by someone who appears to specialize in traditional wedding gowns and evening dresses, because that is not what my tiny brain would have guessed. See more by visiting Belgium's Verte Blanche (Cécile Dalcq).


Bonus link:

More glass and silver from Japan's Coia Canata (Aiko Tanaka).



Also admiring:

"Glass rice" necklace by the UK's Rita Patel, in collaboration with Sara Squire.

In an alternate universe, where there are no such things as metal allergies or money, I am probably wearing rings by California's Sofia Kaman. I just hope alternate-universe Sofia is still a jeweller. (Also, our alternate-universe selves should have twenty fingers each.)


Bonus link:

More organic, classic-but-modern rings from Hawaii's Sunday Owl.


Also admiring:

Twig bangles by California's Okomido (Midori Ferris Wayne).

Colorado artist Sean Brown also goes by the moniker of Pencil Pusher, and it's easy to see why — although I like how many of his rings highlight the pencils in a rather subtle way.


Bonus link:

Pencil crayon heart ring by Romania's Andrei Abrudean.


Also admiring:

Pencil crayon necklace by Kateřina Matěchová of the Czech Republic.

I'm back from vacation — if you're reading this, thanks for returning to the blog! Today, we're picking up right where we left off: with Corian, this time from Italy's Cindy Leper (who also has some nice wood rings).


Bonus link:

Ring in walnut and recycled skateboard by Calgary woodworker Adrian Martinus.


Also admiring:

Walnut "zig zag" cuff by L.A.'s Sophie Buhai.

Please note:
The blog will be taking a little break.
Next post will be Thursday, October 22nd!


Before I take off for a couple of weeks...

...here's some work by a new favourite artist...

...who does gorgeous work with Corian...

...and amethyst...

...including necklaces, like this. Please set some time aside to visit the UK's Marina Stanimirovic.


Bonus link:

Amethyst rings by the UK's Aphotic Jewellery (Jonathan Silva).



Also admiring:

"Monument" pin in Corian and steel by Portugal's Patrícia Correia Domingues (another fave).

Let's start October with the fiery fall colours of Greek jeweller Akis Goumas, with textile fragments by sculptor Georgia Gremouti. It's like nature's final taunt before the winter chill descends.


Bonus link:

3D-printed "fire element" ring by French designer Sofian Tallal.


Also admiring:

Botanical earrings by Japan's F & F (Kouichi Watanabe).
