Jay Song / Mecurialist

These rings are the result of exploring lanterns as a communicative form. They "are meant to hang from hands that pray or meditate" and "suggest a quietude that is, at its essence, personal."

For more gorgeous work, visit Georgia metalsmith Jay Song.

Dark + Dawn / Romeing Panda

I feel trapped — by indecision! Wide open, closed shut or dangerously ajar, this bear-trap is one ring that can be worn three ways. It's up to you, if you can bear to choose. Find lots more cool pieces at Dark + Dawn (L.A.'s Tyler Durtschi).

Olga Noronha / Myriam Oude Vrielink

I do like keeping Kleenex handy.

These may not just be clean but surgically sterile! In her "Conflict" series, Portuguese artist Olga Noronha uses real surgical tools — but without dissociating them from their original function, as in these rings using bone staples and ivory. The tissue ring is from her "Dirty Issues" series. (If you like these, you may also be interested in these.)

Archetype Z / Michal Piasecki & Krystian Kwieciński

Yesterday was just the hexagon appetizer. Today, we go full board, with hexagons made of hexagons, sometimes even topped with hexagons. Hexagons squared, if you will, though squaring a hexagon could leave you with four sides instead of 36. Still with me? Good, because there's more:

This 3D-printed stainless steel honeycomb/hexagon ring, as well as the bamboo rings above, by California's Archetype Z (Alia Hasan).

Katherine Agnew / Katzi

Katherine Agnew based these hive-like hexagon cluster rings on The Decemberists' "The Hazards of Love," an album that serves as a unified narrative. From the UK jeweller's "...Undone" collection, "each piece represents a pivotal scene from the album." (Look closely and some of the shapes are actually diamond-shaped pentagons.)

The blog will be on a short summer break.
Next post will be Wednesday!

I bow to the ebony temple (rings) of Alice Cicolini. The British designer, who was inspired by "the sacred architecture and patterns of the Silk Route," is a founding member of IKKIS, "a foundation [which] supports world-class craftsmanship in India."
