Ashley Vick and ... many others


These sea urchin rings look like they belong in Blade Runner (you know, in that famous sea urchin scene). Patinated bronze and silver give a worn, industrial look to these organic forms by Rhode Island metalsmith Ashley Vick. Also shown are pieces from her yarn series; the rings are mixtures of yarn, clay, wax, silver and copper.



Above, by contrast, some clean, achromatic, layered bands.

» Top row (L-R): "strata" band by Welsh jeweller Mari Thomas and "octave" rings by Germany's Marion Knorr.

» Middle row (L-R): "cold outside/warm inside" rings by the Netherlands' Martine Viergever, telescoping "leek ring" from Rotterdam's Levensringen (whose rings all contain plant seeds) and gold and silver "continue" rings by France's Florence Croisier.

» Bottom row (L-R): "stringrings" by Silke Spitzer and circular and square bands by Aninka Harms, both of Germany.
