Final post of 2009!

I'm taking a holiday break — this is my last post of 2009! Have yourselves a great New Year! Here's a final ring roundup to close us out:

First up is Jantje Fleischhut. I already mentioned this artist a few weeks ago as part of my Amsterdam report but, at that time, her site was not yet ready. Well, it's ready now! She is one of my all-time favourite jewellers.

"Fin #5" in silver, glass and dyed feathers by North Carolina's Angela Bubash.

Spiral-bound ring by the UK's Niko Pilarinos.

Botanical gold by Los Angeles metalsmith Valerie Mitchell.

"Tilted Cathedral" by New York's Francine Grenci.

Free-form metal and diamonds by Dallas jeweller Demotionart (Ludwig Schwarz).

Bar rings by English jeweller Katzie Hughes (now in Germany).

3D-modelled rings in gold and wood by Italy's D'Arc Studio.

Simple lines by Denmark's Anette Dreyer.

Caren Hartley / cute.little.disaster

It's that time of year — are the receipts piling up? Perhaps you can turn your spending records into a gift for yourself! UK metalsmith Caren Hartley takes collected receipts and turns them into the gorgeous "picnic" ring, above (shown both open and closed). Below, more of her rings in recycled paper — this time, vintage postcards:

Carolyn Tillie / Kimberly Anne Johansen

If Carolyn Tillie invites you over for dinner, don't say no. The San Francisco jeweller and food writer shows a penchant for the finer, tastier things in life with her sushi- and champagne-themed jewellery.

She's got dessert covered, too. For more on her gastronomical side, see her food and wine blogs.

Emi Ando / Yuki Ferdinandsen

We had a blink-and-it's-gone sprinkling of snow over the weekend. San Francisco's Emi Ando offers a more permanent installation with her "Snow" rings made of sterling and fine silvers, pearls and cz. Below, her scrolled "Last Letter" ring stamped with (backwards) Japanese hiragana.

All for the Mountain / Thomas Feichtner

Imagine that New York's Chrysler Building were left to weather atop the Tibetan Himalayas — you might get a sense for the aesthetic of Los Angeles designers All for the Mountain. Recommended if you love triangles! Pictured above are their "Palace Brick" and "Sacred Mystical Mountain" rings; below, their "Drip Crown" rings.

Stacey Lee Webber (The Coin Smith) / Mitsuhiro Okamoto

If someone offers a penny for your thoughts, do you give them your two cents? Maybe money management isn't your strong suit. Someone who is good with coins is Wisconsin artist Stacey Lee Webber (aka The Coin Smith), whose work goes beyond any coin jewellery I've ever seen. Her portfolio is definitely worth a visit.

She even sculpts with coins; the screwdrivers above are from her "tools" series.

Rana Mikdashi / Batia Wang

November in Vancouver was all grey, like this.

But December is turning out to be all bright and sunny, like this! Aside from illustrating my riveting accounts of meteorology, Lebanese jeweller Rana Mikdashi does nice work in silver, gold and enamel (with some bone and polymer clay thrown in as well).
