With this Ring....

A bit of ring eye candy today. I love the look of gorgeous rings, but sometimes chunky rings can drive me bananas. I have lost count the number of rings I have taken off when I start working and have kind of "misplaced" .....wedding ring included!Check out these amazing recycled bakelite and timber "mini sculptures" by Kyyote. L.A. based designer Amanda Loos strives to utilize materials and methods of production that are kind to the environment. She reuses and recycled materials that would otherwise be put to waste.Amanda's rings are made from pieces of exotic hardwoods left over from furniture manufacture and vintage plastic. And two trees are planted for every Kyyote piece sold.
Knitted rings by London designer Suzi Warren of Twisted Twee. They look so woolly and cosy, like a mini nana rug on your finger. While your visiting the Twisted Twee site have a look at all the "sometimes wrong but oh so right" cool, edgy and slightly twisted products .If you have knitted rings it's logical that you HAVE to have a knitting needle ring from the "Plastic Girl" herself Liana Kabel. What do you do when you have a big collection of vintage plastic knitting needles? Make them into cool knotted needle rings (above ), needle nobs with stirling silver rings (below left) and twisted Knitwit needle rings (below right)

If you are mad about rings, a visit to The Carrotbox is highly recommended!

  3. Yep, I totally fall into the "claustrophobic finger" category! I have had to have a ring sawn off in the middle of the night once as it was too tight and driving me insane!
