French jewellers 22.77 have a bold but minimal style, some with a texture representing "a long way from clean shapes to chaos."

These rings look to me like someone's insouciant signature, the kind you get to have when there isn't a "t" to cross or an "i" to dot. For more minimal silver jewellery, see Japan's Little Riddle.

I love the cosmic look of this snake ring by Singapore's Ferne Atelier, who also made the ring holders (both in polymer clay; gold rings from By Invite Only). The main theme of their work, however, is botanical — as with these awesome turtle terrarium earrings!

I don't think I even need to say that these rings come from Greece. What I will say is that they come from, more specifically, Kourtzis Art Pottery, a family business that's been around for 200 years and five generations!

I haven't said this in a while: I am Spinning-Homer excited. I mean, these hedgehog rings are one thing...

...but check out this hedgehog riding a unicorn!

And these bunnies inside a larger bunny!

And so much more, all from the mind of Japan's Rinverre.

Christian Baron is a French tattoo artist who also dabbles in ring-making — and I love his designs in both crafts (especially the colouring style)!

Friday, July 10, 2020

From tactile rings...

...to reinterpreted cigar bands...

...to this, Massachussetts' Kaining Wang makes jewellery that invites interaction.
