Rita Ruivo / Jen Abrams

Velvet: it's not just for Elvis paintings. While there's a good variety of textile jewellery out there, velvet seems to be under-represented. Portugal's Rita Ruivo remedies that situation with her rings incorporating the lush fabric.

Above, a ring from her MNAA collection, in which copies of antique jewellery from Lisbon's National Museum of Ancient Art were printed onto fabric.

Linda Schailon / Åsa Lockner

Inventor Joseph Friedman was awarded U.S. patent #2,094,268 in September 1937. The business was incorporated in April 1939. Then came the war, delaying the first sale (to a hospital) until 1947. It's been a long time coming but the bendy straw has finally met its full potential in these colourful, whimsical rings by Italy's Linda Schailon.

Erin Colleen Williams / Daniel Proulx

Making science pretty: "Observation Ring" with magnifying glass.

Making science putrid: said ring with decorative petri dishes.

Check out Philadelphia's Erin Colleen Williams for interesting work in a style I like to think of as "turn-of-the-centry mad scientist." (Turn of the last century, that is — that expression got really confusing around the year 2001.)

Erin Cornell / Tony Creed

The maze symbolizes ability — the compass, purpose. To learn what the others symbolize, and for the full story behind these rings, see the thesis page of Michigan artist Erin Cornell.

Galibardy / Shona Macsween

I'm hungry for hippos. Pink enamel hippos.

But I'd settle for coffee and cake.

For a smorgasbord of fun pieces (how cute is that alarm clock ring?), check out the UK's Galibardy.

Dina González Mascaró / Lisa Malmgren Åberg / Janamade

"Scrap heaps from a torn-down building" might not seem like an appealing description but it's a look that works in these artfully chaotic rings by Dina González Mascaró. Check out the Vancouver-based Argentinian jeweller on her freshly-launched website! (And if you're in Vancouver, visit her JewellerBau gallery at 2408 Main, right by where Aurora Bistro used to be.)

If it's chaos in colour you want — or maybe some sleek knobs of glass — check out Sweden's Lisa Malmgren Åberg.

By the way: I haven't posted on the weekend in a while but I did on Saturday — scroll down if you missed it.

Weekend Quickie: Raïssa Bump

Weekend quickie: yay! An artist I've long admired, San Francisco's Raïssa Bump, finally has her site up and running. Alas, I think these are the only rings, but the rest of her work is well worth a visit [spoiler warning] especially if you like colourful silk thread.

Alice R. Scott / Barbara Stutman / Laura Simeoni

You know you're a metalsmith when silver runs in your veins. This amazing piece by Virginia's Alice R. Scott, bejeweled with a single tooth, is like an external vascular system for your hand.

Speaking of hands, here's another in crocheted silver from Montreal's Barbara Stutman (I've also thrown in some legs for good measure; the ones on the left are a ring and brooch sculpture).

Märta Mattsson / Jade Moran

Maybe I'm being Jedi mind-tricked but the more I stare, the more a white Darth Vader in the cockpit of a pink TIE fighter makes sense. I mean, of course.

Pink Vader, golden slug and things that look like sour soothers with all the sugar sucked off, all resin, by Swedish jeweller Märta Mattsson.

Amy Johnston / Vernissage

Is the whole more than the sum of its parts? What if its parts are pretty awesome on their own and what makes the whole awesome is that it can be broken down into three awesome parts and that the actual summation itself is a whole other kind of awesome that almost supersedes the resulting sum, which is still, if you will recall, awesome? To summarize: this is awesome.

And so is this. (You wear it with the crescent moon resting on your pinky!) All work above by Oregon's Amy Johnston.

Kent Perdue / Reclaimed Relics

I think my blog wants to be an IKEA catalogue for Hallowe'en, because we've got more furniture today! These adorable chair rings were created by Tennessee woodworker Kent Perdue.

Above, a piece more befitting a hangar than a living room, from the artist's "wing ring" series.

Shlomit Ofir / Ruby Diego

Neatniks, take note. In her "Furniture to Jewelry" project, Israel's Shlomit Ofir has created a "storage" line of jewellery consisting of pieces that can store themselves.

Above, another ring from the series. The concept is particularly effective when it comes to the brooches and necklaces with dripping chains, so go check them out now!

Noir Jewelry / Anjuna Bijoux / Ken & Dana Design

Let's span an even larger distance than yesterday with this two-finger suspension bridge ring — the Brooklyn Bridge, to be exact.

Above, more from New York's Leeora Catalan, who showcases her glam-punk aesthetic with Noir Jewelry.

For more urban jewellery, but tending more hip-hop than punk, check out Anjuna Bijoux of Paris. In addition to a bevy of graffiti rings, they have this four-finger village ring that spells "Anjuna" when viewed from above.
