Designer Drills Holes into Quarters, Turns Them into Rings

website / facebook

Designer Nicholas Heckaman of The Ring Tree meticulously handcrafts detailed rings out of US coins. The Gainesville, Florida-based designer first discovered his skill when he was looking for the perfect ring to propose to his girlfriend with. He managed to create a special engagement ring out of a silver coin with a hammer and “a lot of patience.”

That’s cool as fuck

El pueblo, por desgracia, es todavía muy ignorante, y es mantenido en su ignorancia por los esfuerzos sistemáticos de todos los gobiernos, que consideran esta ignorancia como una de las condiciones más esenciales de su propia potencia.

Kinetic Rings Mimic the Flight of Birds

Kansas-based metalsmith and jeweler Dukno Yoon creates rings, bracelets, and other devices that mimic the movements of birds by harnessing the motion caused by the flick of the wrist or flexing of fingers. Yoon received his BFA from Kookmin University, Seoul and a MFA from Miami University, Oxford, Ohio and most recently has been working on a series of metronomes that also explore the movement of birds.

Friends!
Big news! Penguin is publishing a book of my fairy tales called Alice in Tumblr-land: And Other Fairy Tales for a New Generation. Out 10/29!
From the inside flap:
"The Ugly Duckling still feels gross compared to everyone else, but now she’s got Instagram, and there’s this one filter that makes her look awesome. Cinderella swaps her glass slippers for Crocs. The Tortoise and the Hare Facebook stalk each other. Goldilocks goes gluten-free. And Peter Pan finally has to grow up and ge ta job, or at least start paying rent.
Here are more than one hundred fairy tales, illustrated and re-imagined for today. Instead of fairy godmothers, there’s Siri. And rather than big bad wolves, there are creepy dudes on OkCupid. In our brave new world of social networking, YouTube, and texting, fairy tales can once again lead us to ‘happily ever after’—and have us laughing all the way.”
!!!
It will be hardcover, with dust jacket, and fancy endpapers. Cream-colored, rough-edged pages.
240 pages of 150 illustrated fairy tales. Over 70% of the stories are new, and nearly every illustration is new.
Certain characters reappear throughout the book—like Alice, Peter Pan, and Cinderella—with an overarching narrative. So you can read it cover to cover and get the larger story, or you can open up to any page and find a laugh.
I tried really hard to make it something special. If you like what you’ve seen here, you’ll love the book. Ryan Gosling is on the first page, so.
I’ll be posting excerpts, new stories, behind-the-scenes videos and photos, and all sorts of other things—including contests to write or illustrate a fairy tale—in the next two months, so follow on Tumblr, Facebook, or Twitter.
First 200 pre-orders get a signed and numbered print from me, so reserve your copy now at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Books-A-Million, IndieBound, oriTunes.
And I’ll say this many more times in the next two months, but: Thanks. It’s because you liked or shared this stuff that this book is happening. I can’t express my gratitude enough.
So much love,
Tim Manley
