Hilary Finck

Don't let their cute faces fool you. These rings, by San Francisco's Hilary Finck, are more than just your average silver and enamel rings — they spin! And not only do they spin, they were made using the rare art of plique-à-jour: an enamelling technique similar to cloisonné, except that rather than being fired on a metal background, the enamel is suspended within the filigree, allowing light to shine through. The result? Enamel that looks like stained glass.
