Yoko Izawa

Lycra and nylon: for some, the ingredients of an unfortunate jazzercize outfit. But in the hands of Japanese artist Yoko Izawa, these fabrics become essential components of some insanely gorgeous jewellery. Her etheral "veiled" rings, like the one pictured here, speak to her interest in "containing, covering, or wrapping things" — they're made by stretching woven fabric over glass or lucite. Of course, with my luck, I'll need to carry a spare in my purse or I'll get a run in my ring the minute I step out the door.
