This amazing occasional-wear ring deserves your attention.
Patrick Burt: This was an experiment which I felt failed and was therefore not reproduced. Now, when I state that the design failed I mean that in the sense of wearability. The look of the ring, I believe, is terrific but I know that it won’t stand up to the rigors of daily wear.
Titanium is colored by an electrical process which builds up an ultra thin skin of Titanium dioxide on the surface of the metal. This coating is completely clear and just molecules thick. The clarity and thickness sets up a diffraction of light which appears to us as color. The result, as you can see, is wonderful but the color is just molecules thick and quite vulnerable to the wear that hands dish out.
Even so, isn’t it gorgeous?
Beautiful lampworked glass by Jill Symons
As a glass artist, I am fascinated with the play of light upon glass. The beauty of glass beads is the simple power of glass itself; the power to transmit light. My approach to glass beadmaking is as simple as slowing down and letting the glass release the color, allowing the glass to speak.
I am constantly awed by the fluidity and form the solid glass takes. I draw inspiration from the glass itself and the way in which it seems to tell me what to do next. Drawing on a background in design, a passion for photography and a love of glass — ideas spill into dreams of what could be — always posing the question then of what else is possible and is there really a limit?
I remember the first time someone referred to my beads as ‘work’. My mind instantly denied that such joy could come from something called ‘work’. I have been making glass beads since 1999.
I am completely, totally, and faithfully in love with this first bracelet.
And these other ones are incredible as well.
If God didn’t want you to have it, He never would have let you see it.
Well, alrighty then.
Gogo Borgerding combines her love of vibrant color with her passion for bold design to create sterling silver and anodized aluminum cuff bracelets. Borgerding fashions the top layer of each cuff in silver, and then rivets the silver to a bottom layer of colorful anodized aluminum. The result is reminiscent of 1950’s picnic-ware– bright silver melded with luscious roses, golds, and reds, each cuff a refreshingly timeless piece of jewelry.
In one of my favorite colors for the season, this felted bag is just right to get you through the blazing hot days of summer. With this much color, panache, and humor you’ll just be forced to survive the heat so you can continue to admire it. Most awesome. By Cofygirl.
