Cleo & Cat (Claudia & Catalina Pieschacon) / Gudrun Stolz
I usually love chunky pairings of metal and stone, but not in this case. Here's why: this ring is actually made of polymer clay! While most polymer jewellery tends to be covered in bright patterns, Colombian-born sisters Claudia and Catalina Pieschacon (now based in Florida and New York, respectively) take a different approach. Rather than focus on colour, they concentrate on the sculptural properties of the material, then embed semi-precious stones and gild the pieces with paint. The rings aren't gold, but the results sure are. A few more samples below; visit their site Cleo & Cat for the whole collection.
