Showcase 500 Rings is here!

Look what came in the mail! Showcase 500 Rings: New Directions in Art Jewelry is the first in Lark Books' new "Showcase 500" series. Juried by Bruce Metcalf, the book is full of exciting new work. A few of my favourites are the Golden Fleece ring by Giovanni Corvaja, made of 104,272 fur-like strands of gold, Julie Usel's Potato Ring series composed of dried and dyed potatoes, Daniel Cook's Magnetic Wedding Set using iron filings and magnets, and Johanna Dahm's "Clay" rings, which are not made of clay at all, but use 22kt gold and rough yellow diamonds like clay.
