Zaorick / Charcoal Designs

Happy Hallowe'en!

See that ring she's wearing? There's more where that came from.

When I say more, I mean pages upon pages upon pages more. Japan's Zaorick offers oodles of ghoulish treats for you to peruse. If you don't read Japanese, just click where you'd normally find the "next page" link at the bottom of any blog page. And keep clicking and clicking.

Vanessa Arthur / Pennie Jagiello

I love this gorgeous transformation of reclaimed building materials, like laminate and plywood, by New Zealand's Vanessa Arthur. She has a funny streak, too, as one of them (pictured above, bottom) is ironically named "lifetime guarantee."

Lucy Jenkins / Lisa Watson

London metalsmith Lucy Jenkins uses recycled materials like fuses, zippers and watch straps in these bird and book rings. But if you want to get at the, um, meat of her work, you'll have to check out her taxidermy jewellery.

mzuu / Yunhee Kim

At first, this jeweller was going to be part of Monday's skull ring post. Then it was going to be part of Tuesday's diamond ring post. With such a wide selection of rings, it could be part of any post, so let me avoid putting it off any longer and dedicate today's post to Korea's mzuu. The rings above (including smoking skulls!) are from their "Rollips" collection.

Katie Lees / tmh.

Scotland's Katie Lees has some great metalwork inspired by the "heavy industrial aesthetic of the shipbuilding history that has moulded the city of Glasgow."

Above, her structural rings with clusters of diamond-like outlines.

Kaye Blegvad / Catarina Silva / Fabi Malavazi

With Hallowe'en just a week away, I've got skulls on (not to mention encasing) the brain. First up are these brass and silver rings from New York's Kaye Blegvad. Like little skull families!

And here's an entire skull clan, from Portugal's Catarina Silva

A skull with a flourish from Brazil's Fabi Malavazi.

Claire McArdle / Lunasa Designs

Australia's Claire McArdle is killing me with the greatness of her jewellery. I particularly love these "Wind Wheel" and "Metropolis" pieces that look like they were plucked from a rural landscape.

Above, her finger- and nail-tunnels. I am slain.

Mel Miller / Beccy Boo

Awwwwwwwwwww yeeeeeeeeahhhh.

Australia's Mel Miller has re-awakened my long-ago obsession with bouncy balls, using the Funnest Toy on Earth as "stones" in her rings (some of which even glow in the dark). She also carves those balls into tubes for use as beads — visit her site to see!

Martina Bocka / Mederu Jewelry

I like the word "loop" because it resembles a needle looping thread. (Kind of like how "bed" looks like a bed. Is there a term for such words?)

All lovely loops above from German jeweller Martina Bocka.

Lena & Fredrik / Autumn Brown

Two incompatible rings (unless you like burning thread) from two compatible designers, Lena & Fredrik (Lena Åberg & Fredrik Lundberg). In addition to creating jewellery and objects, the duo teach classes in silversmithing — but you'll have to go to Sweden if you want to take part!

Nayad Bal / Antje Bleck

Turkey's Nayad Bal knows that two heads are better (and cuter) than one.

Rachael Colley / Muriel & Lily (Mary Larkin)

Beef, flour, egg whites — and gold-plated silver? That's the recipe for this "Beefin' Up" ring.

For all the times I've talked about rings that look good enough to eat, here are some rings made of food good enough to wear. The red rings above (bottom) feature double-sided tape and raspberry jelly! Also shown above (top) are "U-R-N" rings with Whitby jet dust, flour and dried blood. For more fantastic work, check out UK artist Rachael Colley.

Claire Baloge / Chelsea Miller Designs

I love these silver and clay rings by French artist Claire Baloge but she has some really crappy pieces on her website. No, I mean really crappy — as in actual camel dung! Not to mention hair, organic copper and lots, lots more.

yyogurt (Anna Yingnan Yu) / Aida Pekin

There's yogurt unflavoured...

...and then there's yogurt with a bit of colour. I'm not talking in metaphors, I'm talking about yyogurt and yyogurt unflavored, the two sides of Chinese designer Anna Yingnan Yu (formerly Yu Yu Design).

Above, her "plug and socket" ring.

Happy Canadian Thanksgiving!
