Macabre Gadgets / I Heard They Eat Cigarettes / Kaori Shimomura

These rings could be relics from the gothic era — were it not for the fact that they're made of plastic. Ukraine's Macabre Gadgets fuses polymers and crystals and, in so doing, fuses the modern and the medeival.

The rings above are made from rubber and silver — but the rubbery black ones are blackened silver, and the ribbons of colour on silver are rubber. Roger? For more, see Elizabeth Bailey Christenbury, based in Georgia.
