There’s some interesting stuff out there. I found these rings made by British designer Rachel Colley as part of her ‘Subdevision’ series. Stating her desire to challenge traditional perceptions of jewellery and the idea of them being lifelong objects, she has created a series of rings using unconventional (to say the least) materials such as British beef, flour, dried blood, jelly and Whitby jet dust. Above is her ‘Beefin’ Up’ ring made of gold plated silver, British beef, flour and egg white. Below are her U-R-N series, made of gold plated silver, Whitby jet dust, flour and dried blood, and beneath those, the red rings are made of gold plated silver, Swarovski crystals, double-sided tape and raspberry jelly. I don’t think I’m going to be stocking chunks of dried beef anytime soon, but they certainly make you think!
