Pennsylvania's Marie June is literally dripping in gold and silver jewellery not all of it Hallowe'en-ready, I should note, though there are a lot of spiders and webs involved.
It may be the season for black and orange where I am but, just for today, I'm going to live among the tropical hues and motifs of Spain's La Manso (Vanesa Juez).
Thailand's Mary Lou is known for their brass and enamel animal jewellery, the pinnacle of which (in my unsurprising opinion) are surely these three-piece ring sets.
"Delicately crude, rudimentary femininity" in bunches from New York's Shana Cave.
From the "Coral" collection by Japanese jeweller Aoi Horiguchi, these bead rings have a simple yet striking design and an almost lifelike quality.
This ring is made of glass and nikawa, which is...
...a traditional Japanese glue!
For more of these glassy goods, visit Japan's Kei Hosaka.
If this ring strikes your fancy at all...
...you will most definitely want to see the rest of Hong Kong's Fake Plastic Love, which is teeming with pieces like these.
Colourless creativity from consonantless aiueo (that's sort of like "A E I O U" in Japanese), who is primarily a nail artist.
For stacked white faces and iridescent blob clusters, or sometimes iridescent face clusters and organic white blobs they look cooler than I'm making them sound visit Lithuania's Ntj Jewellery.
Frosty, minimalist glass from Iran's meh jewelry (Marzie Fateh).
...actually rings. Dang. I think it wins the blog. To hear it, visit Toronto's Jiho Choi.
South Korea's 32DAWN (Hyobin Choi) finds the "grotesque parts of nature" and turns them beautiful.
Some skeletons, you do want in your closet. Oregon's Epilith Jewelry (Katie Boyles) incorporates natural botanicals in her jewellery, like the leaf skeleton rings you see above.
