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.

Goldfish in bags (like this, not like this) instantly transport me to summer in Japan. As do these rings and beads by Tonbodama ["glass bead"] Kayo.

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.

Cool though her rings may be...

...I think it's her flexible resin pieces that really stand out. See them all by visiting Brazil's Mariah Rovery.

Tuesday, July 16, 2019

I've actually seen enough barnacle rings to be able to say that these are the nicest barnacle rings I've seen, and not have that be faint praise! For more organic metalwork, visit Maryland's Maria Louise High (aka Little Blue Studio).

Ring-Free Thursday: Japan's Hibiki.

Wednesday, July 10, 2019

Is this a ring?

Or is it an ear-ring (not to be confused with "earring")?

The artist calls it a "Phrenology Crown," so I guess it's neither. But the two pieces directly above are rings, and you can check them out (and more) by visiting Tennessee metalsmith Darcie Beeman-Black.

The subtle blend of different textures, tones, finishes and shapes in these matchy (but not matchy-matchy) wedding rings is just about perfect. For more, see Japan's Uchimari.

Monday, July 8, 2019

Complete and utter clarity in handcut synthetic quartz from Thailand's Vinit Koo (they look even better in the videos).
