For all those crying because it's the unofficial end of summer: UK-based Yanlong Duan is here for your tears with these cotton rings.
Ring-Free Thursday: Tennessee's Adam Hawk.
The "Touch Me" rings by Brazil's IVI Designs (Ivi Pivetta Viero) are designed to help with anxiety by "controll[ing] fidgeting" and "self-destructive behaviors." There's a lot more to see, including a cute hand-shaped series, so go check it out.
South Korea's Keep'em embraces a "genderless" philosophy in their design.
A lovely mix of organic and geometric metal from Japan's Shindo Haruka (name in Japanese order).
I need not say more. Check out the UK's Bug (Ellie Ingram) if you need a reason to smile :)
Ring-Free Thursday: Japan's Kui Co., proving that resort style doesn't have to mean bright colours.
Minimalist (but not minimized) rings in acrylic and wood and a matching manicure in photo #1. This gives me ideas. All pieces by Japan's mi2.
Three-ring circus brought to you by Greek jeweller Ariadni Kypri.
These carved-out domes by Brazil's Brain for Rent (Renata Cesar Pereira) are actually 3D-printed in biodegradable material, which is great, except for the part about rings decomposing, which is sad.
Scotland-based Adrienn Pesti may have made "Koosh ball chic" a thing with her creations in Silk Clay. Be sure to see the whole colourful collection!
Ring-Free Thursday: Nevada's Millicent Dollhouse (Cadence Alexia).
Get in line with Japan's Litt Jewelry.
Rings, 3D-printed and manipulated, by Switzerland's Digimorphé (Consuelo Keller).
Above, just a few more glass rings by Iorinko, also of Japan.
I'll let Italy's Ylenia Deriu take us into the weekend with these words, describing her "Profile" series:
Time freezes. The memory of the past is embedded in an everlasting sprout of brass gems. The buzz of the city sleeps under a shining veil. Metal is everywhere, metal assaults the matter. Metal infests my hills and invades my cities, metal absorbs the places where I live.
Ring-Free Thursday: Céline Charuau of France.
Just when I think these colours couldn't be more brilliant...
...they literally glow. I love these big cubic zirconia set in glass (some UV-reactive) by Michigan's White Chocolate Glass (Kristin Renee DeWulf).
Clear glass reveries with touches of gold by the aptly-named DayDream of Japan.
Dried but not dry: glass, fruit and florals by Japan's T.W.
With flowers and corals as her inspiration, Hungary's Eszter Valdhauser turns clay into these ceramic beauties.
Ring-Free Thursday: New York's Cat Merrick.
