Ring love

On Saturdays outing I stopped into Pigment in North Park. It is an eclectic small space with a mix of terrariums, gifts and jewelry. They also have a range of terrarium making tools, vessels, sands and other things to create your own terrarium. That is for another day....but on this day I found this ring.




I was totally enamored with the structure of it and asked about the artist. It turns out it is a collaboration of two former MIT students who are using nature to create images and 3 d printing to render them. The jewelry was very interesting and a visit to their website and blog revealed many more pieces including dinnerware, housewares and lamps.


Of course I want to get out the gilders paste and flat backs and embellish....and I totally want a 3 d printer!
