Kody Wing Hang Chan / Laura Mains

There are times when I can't even pull my receipt from the gas pump without creating a shredded mess — and so the universe offers counterbalance in the form of UK-based Hong Kong native Kody Wing Hang Chan, whose talent with paper is inspired by the silhouettes of branches and flowers.

Pieter Bostoen / Cloudswimmers

I love it! But does it come as a full cage?

I love it! But does it come in any other colours?

I love it! But does it come in a little less colour?

I love it! But—

Perfect. Belgian designer Pieter Bostoen covers all the angles with his 3D-printed jewellery.

Based in Athens and Berlin, this design duo has an adorable, lighthearted style that's distinctly their own.

RYKA / Les folles marquises

It's kind of fitting that these rings were created by RYKA — because if you stare at that name, you start seeing numerous triangles in the letters themselves. Visit Brazilian designer Renata Guimarães for more geometric works in polymer clay.

Denise Gielen / Friedemann Haertl

Have you heard (Huey Lewis &) the news? It's hip to be square. But it's hipper to be square-ish with lots of cool angles and spaces and why yes this jeweller is also an architect however did you know? Check out Belgian designer Denise Gielen.

Momon (Yukako Katsuyama) / Eleni Maria Kyriazi

I was going to call these rings "Picassoesque" but, considering his origins, perhaps "Picassiano" is more apt. Japan's Yukako Katsuyama, on the other hand, might go with "Picasso-poi." Check them out on her jewellery site, Momon.

Mi-Ah Rödiger / Delphine Boël

Amsterdam's Mi-Ah Rödiger "makes jewellery that aims at introspection: more than anything, it needs to be experienced by the wearers themselves. [Her] work stems from a deeply felt need to halt the world for a second. She wants to limit the current overload of stimuli by 'switching off', by isolating certain senses." These rings (from her "Soundscapes" collection) don't do her work justice, so check out her site!

Kamal Nassif / Chiara Bet

If you ask me, every finger is a "ring finger." But is every ring a ring with a ring finger wearing a ring? Only if it belongs to Rhode Island-based Texan Kamal Nassif.

Mauve Magpie / Le Chou Chou Bijoux

Speaking, as we were yesterday, of corn syrup... there's actually none to be had here because these gummy candies are actually made of resin. Rings by Scotland's Mauve Magpie (Lauren Searle).

Amalia Moon / Il Salotto

Dextrose, corn syrup, citric acid: not the ideal ingredients of a healthy snack, but definitely fit for "Consumption," an intriguing collection from Maine metalsmith Amalia Moon.

Adam Kereliuk / Janna Syvänoja / Eva Xia

A wasp's nest is normally cause for an exterminator; Vancouver identity designer Adam Kereliuk decided it was cause for a 3D-scanner. Using a real nest as a model, he created this 3D-printed "nest ring."

This gives me a good excuse to remind you of Finnish artist Janna Syvänoja, who has a new site where you can check out her gorgeous, sculptural paper jewellery. (Her real wasp's nest ring, above, made an appearance here in April 2008.)

Emma Burfoot / Katelyn Riley

I'm having trouble constructing sentences that would do these rings justice. Luckily, UK jeweller Emma Burfoot has no trouble constructing, so just go visit her gallery right now!

Elise Goldin / Kevin Steele Morrison

Two days in a row of faux-gemstone rings because I freaking love these things okay? Especially when someone can really put her own stamp on a design. Exhibit A: UK jeweller Elise Goldin.

Nanna Grønborg / Ana-Lee (Jennifer Quinn)

Faux-gemstone acrylic rings — they may seem like a relatively recent trend but Nanna Grønborg was doing it back in 1997!

Check out the Danish-born, German-based jeweller for more plastic pieces, as well as the interesting "Res Mutatio" series. (She also happened to do a stint at CADA, featured here last week.)

Layla Amber / N-Product

When I think "lasercut rings," my first thought is always of austere acrylic — but UK jeweller Layla Amber reminds me that, on second thought, lasercut rings also come in a warm, natural variety. These "In Bloom" rings feature hand-painted lasercut birchwood.

Jade Drakes / Kornelia

Every piece has a story to tell when it comes to Trinidadian jeweller Jade Drakes (and one of those stories may or may not be Stephen King's It).

Jichang Chai / J/Hadley

I guess the stuff really is addictive, because I'm hooked on this "Nicotine" ring by Chinese artist Jichang Chai. Visit his site for many more interesting pieces, all of which are like assembled sculptures.
