Höllwerk / RXVrings

There's something vaguely, disconcertingly alien — sentient, even — about these "hose rings" from Germany's Höllwerk (Astrid Zipp & Christine Maxand). It's like they're looking at me! I, for one, welcome our new ring-shaped overlords.

Angelo Verga / Hecho-a-Mano

In "Sintered Nature," Damascus steel "flowers" sprout from rings made of wood, metal, and layers of cotton/linen. But before that, they sprout from the mind of Italian jeweller Angelo Verga.

Malene Glintborg / Ladyfingers / Dorry Hsu

I like her take on "cocktail" rings.

I also like her take on origami rings.

And I like her take on skyline rings. I guess I'm just taken with Denmark's Malene Glintborg.

You can also check out her work through Ladyfingers, a collective of Danish jewellers that includes Vitsø (Sabine Mark, whose "organ" ring is above, top left), Mette Juhl (whose teardrop rings are above, top right), Stefanie DeSouza (whose house ring is above), Kamilla Lönnberg and Aurea.

Apawan Kultawanich / Maria Luisa Tribolo

Thai artist Apawan Kultawanich takes a familiar object and transforms it, exploring "the beauty of translucency." What is that object?

If you guessed plastic straws, hooray! Have a drink on me.

Zindzi Wijminga / Starchild

What does this make you think of? Jellyfish? How about... Uri Gellar? Yep, that's a melted spoon.

"Fossils of a Dream" is Dutch artist Zindzi Wijminga's exploration of our emotional attachment to objects (like plastic cutlery).

Sarah Manterfield / Sarah Sculley

When I saw this ring, I immediately thought, "can-can." And then I saw that it's called "Moulin" (which works whether she meant the cabaret or the spinning blades!).

For more, check out the UK's Sarah Manterfield, who's inspired by photography that captures "the delicacy of nature, the fluidity of body movement or our abstract surroundings."

Ye Seul Seo / Lene Wolters

This would've been apropos for a leap day but I didn't want to wait another two years, ten months and 17 days. Awesome "frog" ring by Korean jeweller Ye Seul Seo.

Lana Crabb / uhhu

A lot of things can be fixed by a little paint or a rubber band — even jewellery, if you ask England's Lana Crabb. Shown above are her rings made of rubber bands, paint and broken jewellery; visit her site for more recent pieces featuring rubber bands and powder-coated metal!

Rob Elford / Sara Bran

As an ornithophobe, I'm a complete chicken in the face of this chicken...

...but I'm slightly less fearful of these flamingos. For more 3D-printed jewellery, check out the UK's Rob Elford.

Vermandere-Verheyden / Strange Freak

Nerd wars! In reading about the cycloid, I learned it's "been called 'The Helen of Geometers' as it caused frequent quarrels among 17th-century mathematicians." Coincidentally, these "Cycloides" rings made me think of cyclopses, so I guess it's just a Greek mythology kind of day.

All rings above by the Vermandere half of married Belgian duo Vermandere-Verheyden (Daisy Verheyden & Peter Vermandere).

Damia Smith / AFLO+

Kansas artist and metalsmith Damia Smith states, "I create pieces which physically and mentally engage the individuals who are wearing them." Which is only half true, because she also physically and mentally engages the individuals who are looking at them. Visit her site for a large body of amazing work!

Anna Helena Van De Pol De Deus / Jack Vartanian

As the number four is bad luck in Japanese culture, April 4th is a rather inauspicious day (throw in a dash of triskadekaphobia and April 4th 2013 is the worst 4/4 ever). Thankfully, Brazilian jeweller Anna Helena Van De Pol De Deus is here to save us with her maneki-neko rings. These lucky Japanese "beconing" cats will welcome good fortune and are way cuter than a horseshoe.
