What looks like this and goes with mezcal?

Not lime, but larva. What I took for a fruity ring turned out to be one of many caterpillar rings by Germany-based Japanese artist Beru Inou.

Wear glass. Not too much. Mostly colourless. With apologies to Michael Pollan, rings by Japan's TenTwo.

Shown above are pieces from "Absence," a series that explores how "Parents are more and more busy at work and neglect to accompany children. They can only be accompanied by toys in their hands."

For these and other conceptual works, visit UK-based Wan Li.

Ring-Free Thursday: Australia's This Wee Piggy (Heather Harris).

I used to know someone who thought "alas" meant something good. So, in that spirit: glass, alas, from Russia's Julia Dubenko. Be sure to check out her elegant tulip series, too.

Twofer Tuesday: rectangular tubes by Poland's Daria Siwiak...

... and Italy's My Golden Cage (Maria Elena Pino).

I've seen many a wave ring but these crashing waves might be a first. Check out Russia's DriftLand, who infuses the energy of the sea into her glass pieces.

Hungary's Tengely Nóra plays with rigid chains...

...and malleable plastic.

Ring-Free Thursday: Spain's Amniótica (María Mallo).

Rings in cast glass by Costa Rica's Caterina Fuscaldo. If you like things that are rainbow-coloured, as Roy G. Biv is my witness, you will want to visit her site.

Twofer Tuesday: facets in two-tone metal and 3D-printed nylon by Polish jewellers Alina Filimoniuk (top) and Unikke Design (bottom).

No matter what time of year it is, you can have a Midwinter engagement thanks to Delaware's Caelen and Samantha Bird.

Japan's Nerukom finds a way to make fragile, transparent glass into something dark and menacing.

Ring-Free Thursday: Israel's Noga Mazover.

I like the particularly crisp, clean facets on these rings by Romania's Twisted Twigs.

Russia's Alisa Letsius "love[s] working with juicy colours." Needless to say, her gallery is off the hook.

Super hot: "Boiling Point" ring by the Ukraine's Pinigin (Igor Pinigin).

Friday, April 5, 2019

Slovenia's Isla Clay (Martina Zalig) combines black lines and pastel colours to create (what I consider) ceramic expression of happiness. Most of her work focuses on pendants and earrings, so go check them out!

Ring-Free Thursday: Estonia's Maarja Niinemägi.

Wednesday, April 3, 2019

Check out the intriguingly-named Sunset Yogurt (Italy's Cosima Montavoci) for eyes, teeth and other body parts — glass body parts, that is.

Tuesday, April 2, 2019

Porcupine quill rings by Michigan's Tashina Lee Emery (whose Native name is Misianaquadikwe, meaning "clearing of the sky cloud woman" in Ojibwe). The quills she uses are from "Native American art originating from pre-colonial times."

Moebius rings and more from Brazil's Joana Vasconcello Prudente.
