19Moons / Reservoir 4 / Beth Millner / Alkemie Jewelry / Rie Taniguchi


I don't react well to insect bites. If a mosquito so much as looks at me, I get an eyeball-sized lump that eventually goes bright pink and then fades, as it flattens, into a black and blue pastiche. It's been seven days since I took a quick walk through these bushes and my limbs still look like I got into a bad fight with a hammer and then tried to camouflage the bruising with raspberry stains. Insects: if you can't beat 'em, turn 'em into rings.


Above, top-to-bottom, then left-to-right: steampunk insect ring made from watch parts by Pittsburgh's 19Moons; beetle ring by Reservoir 4 of Los Angeles; bee cut-out by Michigan's Beth Millner; horsefly in reclaimed metal by Alkemie Jewelry, also of Los Angeles; and "buggytroll" ring/box by London-based Rie Taniguchi (whose metal creatures are a must-see).
