Ramiko / Beryl Dingemans / Michelle Chang

CHI Joyería Urbana / Joyería Urbana

In Romance languages, "jewellery" (bijoux, joyas, jóias, etc.) and "game" (jeu, juego, jogo, etc.) have the same Latin root, jocus. This likely did not escape the notice of Argentina's Lucía Mishquila Brichta, creator of these nostalgic, acrylic, analog game rings (including Tetris!). I love, aime, amo them. Check them out through her line, CHI Joyería Urbana.

Also admiring:

Another Joyería Urbana, this one from Mexico.

Chisa Takagi / Tocohana / Lorraine Allan

Nature's great, forests are great, but, sometimes, don't you just think every tree would be improved by a metallic exoskeleton? One look at these pieces by Japan's Chisa Takagi (whose last name, incidentally, means "tall tree") and how could you not?
