Corroded Rings by Yasushi Jona

March 28, 2011

Christopher Jobson

I am by no means a jewelry aficionado, though I did stay up late as a child watching reruns of ocean explorer Jacques Cousteau, and I once owned an honest-to-god metal detector that helped be locate enough rusty nails to build a house. I think that gives me enough cred to post these rings by Japanese designer Yasushi Jona. The rings are new, but have been corroded to look as if just scooped up from a shipwreck on the sea floor. One even contains an embedded shotgun shell. (via lost at e minor)

Margaux Lange: Barbie Deconstruction

February 23, 2011

Christopher Jobson

New York born jewelry designer Margaux Lange deconstructs Barbie dolls into their component parts and turns them into elaborate bracelets, earrings, and necklaces.

The most interesting part is that Margaux Lange uses only second hand dolls and accessories from donations, garage sales, thrift stores and of course eBay. It is important to her conceptually that the Barbies are already used and played with in the hands of a child. Thousands of Barbies in her studio integrate the dreams and secrets of the children who donated their dolls. It this way, each one of her designs, is part of a child’s story and life. It’s an inseparable part of their tender youth!

Phonograph Engagement Ring

January 10, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Luke Jerram created a functional phonograph recording on an engagement ring that he used to propose to his girlfriend.

Working with a jeweler and the vinyl record manufacturer Dubstudios, I created this engagement ring for my partner Shelina. The ring has a 20 second recorded message (my proposal) etched onto it’s surface and can be played back with a miniature record player. […] Using the ring, I proposed to Shelina in a hot air balloon over Bristol in 2005. We’ve since got married and had 2 children Maya and Nico.

Well, I for one etched a symphony into the side of a spacecraft to propose to my wife. (via make)
