Exciting news! The Carrotbox appears in the August issue of ELLEgirl Magazine. I don't have my copy yet, but when I do, I'll try to post a scan of the page. A big welcome to all the ELLEgirl readers out there :)

If you love plastic rings, maybe you'd love putting them on in a room lit with Tony Meredith's plastic Tupperware lamps.

Phew — after a lot of work, four new pages of rings added today: floating flower rings, red and green jade rings, jade coin rings and assorted styles of rainbow rings.

New stacking moonglow rings in store.

What a pretty resin ring over at! If that frame weren't made of silver, I might've bought it. The ad copy says, "Versatile and colorful, synthetic resins are becoming increasingly popular among modern jewelry artists. This gorgeous ring shows why." I've heard that it's actually quite difficult to work purely with resin, but maybe it's easier if you have that metal base to begin with. Originally $100, on sale for 50% off.

More carnelian rings in stock now. Too bad the colour doesn't really suit me; otherwise, I'd be hogging some for myself, for sure. I'll also be getting some jade rings in soon — not just your typical green ones, either!

Good news! The striped lucite rings that everyone loves so much will be restocked soon. Stay tuned :) (Of course, I had to keep a couple for myself, so you can see my chunky lucite collection for a preview of some new colours and shapes.)

Yet another alternative ring material: leather! Also, check out this 1960s lucite ring. The colours match the colours on this very site; too bad it's sold.

As for the store, I got the most adorable Hello Kitty rings today and added a bunch more to the glass section as well.

My dad just sent me five glass rings from Japan! See them here. I dated all the rings in my collection today (something I should've done to begin with). There are also some great finds I've been meaning to post, but I don't have time right now — maybe later!.

If you're in Vancouver, you should check out Object Design on West 4th; they have a huge selection of great artist jewellery, especially rings. They didn't have any glass or plastic, but they did have some interesting wooden rings by Salt Spring Island artist Memory Uglene.

I've noticed more and more men ordering rings from me lately. Is it because Mother's Day is approaching? In any case, what a bunch of nice guys!

I added a black dome ring to my collection today. It's from the French company Kookai.
