Julianah Rotimi / Samira Mazloom

Hanna Mawbey / Joyce Clements

If you ever break a finger in the presence of Hanna Mawbey, you'll at least be the most well-dressed patient around. Check out the UK artist's exploration of medical equipment design! Shown above are her splint rings, which take advantage of the antibacterial properties of silver.

Above, her "prosthetic finger printers."

Elliot Jackson / Skinny Dog

I've lost track of how many rings I've said looked good enough to eat. But today? The tables are turned.

Karen Smith / Garvan Traynor

UK metalsmith Karen Smith creates kinetic jewellery — but not just any kinetic jewellery. Harkening back to the early days of film animation, her pieces include phenakistoscope brooches and the wonders you see before you here: zoetrope rings!

Katharina Vones / Rememberings

I was doing some blogkeeping and realized that I'd somehow gone two years without posting one of my favourites, Katharina Vones, a German jeweller studying in Scotland. Thus, it is with great shame that I post, very belatedly, this amazing work. Don't wait another second — visit her site now to view much more!

Matthew Campbell Laurenza / Dan Tomimatsu

If these rings don't wake you up, your Monday-itis maybe be too fargone to cure! (I know, I know, the disease is a myth.) New York's Matthew Campbell Laurenza bedazzles with these "urban deco" fireworks.

Sondra Sherman / Jordanne Cliffe

With these rings, California's Sondra Sherman highlights the value of the body's largest organ. Considering few of us would trade all our skin for a shiny rock, I'd say that value is pretty high.

Visit her site for many more interesting series; shown above is one of her "dis-engagement" rings.

WXYZ Jewelry / Margaret Irene Baczewski

Do you sometimes feel hollow inside?

Winnie Wong / Peculiar Vintage

They may look like cotton candy but I wouldn't advise putting them in your mouth — these are "pollution" rings by Birmingham jewellery student Winnie Wong.

Lucia Bartková / Britta Klingenstierna

Do you lift your pinky when drinking tea? Now you can also do so when passing the cream!

The pot, on the other hand, may require some stronger digits. For more interesting work, visit Slovakia's Lucia Bartková.

Camille & Sofia / Tove Knuts / Blue Sunflower Studio

Sweet, simple and scalloped: whether with silver or red nylon filament, these cute rings are a fresh take on the crown ring.

Rings above, including this perforated band, by Montreal-based Swedish jeweller Camille Ouellette. She and fellow Swede Sofia Sandell make up Camille & Sofia.

Here's another perforated ring, neatly folded along the dotted lines. If you ask me, bubble wrap is overrated. Real satisfaction comes from folding a perforated sheet one way, then the other, then hearing the soft zzzzzzzzzzzip as you tear the paper in a perfectly straight line. I think Sweden's Tove Knuts knows what I'm talking about.

Daniela Cardillo / Enrica Prazzoli

An extracted spinal column with hair attached to it — sounds like the stuff of Saw movies, yet it somehow makes for an elegant ring. Dublin's Daniela Cardillo, "intrigued by the components that make up a creature," created these rings using rodent bones and horsehair; the latter is braided in the style of Victorian mourning jewellery.

Lauren Passenti / Noelia Contreras

Having recently read a novel in which the old Chinese practice of foot binding was front and centre, well, I'm glad Lauren Passenti wasn't around in 19th century Puwei to give people any more ideas. Check out the Boston jeweller's "Contortion" rings, as well as many other pieces, in her gallery.
