Tom Ferrero / Charity Hall / Karla Poot


While studying in New Zealand, Connecticut metalsmith Tom Ferrero drew inspiration — and materials — from his environment. His "journal rings," showcasing bits of the Kiwi landscape in resin, are engraved with the source coordinates... which I like to think of as having one's birth certificate permanently tattooed.

Here's another ring with a real cicada wing in resin, this time by Arizona's Charity Hall. Also pictured are her green moth ring (with real moth) and a crane fly ring in enamel.
