Jessica Todd / Sour Cherry

Air your dirty clean laundry in public.

Or, wear a "status symbol" that's more conspicuous than any diamond could be. Wrap up the week — and the month — by checking out the metalwork of Ohio's Jessica Todd.

Eimear Conyard / Chrystal Powell


Wait, isn't this a ring blog?



Aha. Ireland's Eimear Conyard creates large hollow forms to house her rings, "a second place of being exclusive of the human physique."

Gina Melosi / Lucie Houdková / Katherine Seaman


A breakthrough, if you will, in jewellery design by UK artist Gina Melosi. (Yes, it's glass.)




If you're one for breakthroughs of the scientific sort, there's this ring by Lucie Houdková, which could make you feel like you're splitting the atom (or maybe just a molecule). The Czech jeweller has a large portfolio of eclectic work!

Mirna Oštarić Kerr / Vortegra Vanities


Croatia's Mirna Oštarić Kerr is all about the unconventional materials — everything but the kitchen sink. Sink strainer, on the other hand...

Stina Brännström / Liang Li / UniCats


Time for another White Wednesday. These are made of one of my favourite things — no, not raindrops on roses or whiskers on kittens, but spackle! (Seriously, does anyone not enjoy spackling?) Rings by Sweden's Stina Brännström.




More white, this time with spongey texture (which clearly has not been spackled), by Sweden-based Chinese artist Liang Li.

Paula Mourão / Michelle Hur / Lisa Cain


If you like bright colours or soft textures — or maybe if you just enjoy vacuuming — check out these textile rings by Paula Mourão. They're like carpet pile! You can also visit the Brazilian jeweller at Atelier Mourão, which was founded by her late father, Caio.




Pictured above is the "Red Carpet" ring by Wisconsin's Michelle Hur, a metalsmith with lots of cool pieces in her portfolio (including a matchstick necklace).

Miku Amemiya / Joost Wever


Ever wanted to simulate a mid-air refueling? Or maybe just pull your hair out? These "Frustrating" rings by Japan's Miku Amemiya come as a pair; one of the long, slim pieces fits into the other, but the trick is that they're meant to be worn by two different people.

Cikolata / Kaori Tomogara


Eeeee! Kitchen geeks, are you salivating? Japan's Cikolata brings us these fabulous rings with Le Creuset-style dutch ovens! I faint.



They also have neat things like curtains (curtains!) and candies but, seriously, can we get back to squealing over the pots?



Eeeee!

Fraser Hamilton / SB-Butterfly


Is "Ozymandian" a word?



In "Idols," London's Fraser Hamilton takes objects of worship and shrinks them down to jewellery size, "subverting their inherent stature."
