Jittrakarn Bunterngpiboon / Hazel White

Aaaaaaaand ACTION!  In her "Live Action" collection, Thai jeweller Jittrakarn Bunterngpiboon encourages participation with your ring, bringing you into its creation. The "Build ME" box (above), for instance, can be unfolded into numerous shapes.

Above: more of her interactive jewellery, including pieces from her "Play" collection.

So just what, exactly, is Ryan Thomas Peters offering?

Well, this "teething" ring, for one. For two, and three, and even four, visit the Rhode Island designer's site!

dterra (Roberta Ferreira and Jener Laura) / Aline Kokinopoulos

These decorative planters would look nice by the front entrance.

Of course, you'd have to be careful not to step on them. Shrunken vase rings in ceramic and silver by Spain's dterra (Roberta Ferreira, originally from Buenos Aires, and Jener Laura, a native Barcelonan).

Fernando Akasaka / Urth

Looks like this...

...was attacked by this.

But, not to worry — they're all part of one happy family created by Brazilian designer Fernando Akasaka (whose "Le blob" collection I also mentioned in passing last November).

Jess Jones / Chaya Studio

"Personalized jewellery" doesn't have to mean monogrammed rings or a pendant stamped with your birthdate. UK designer Jess Jones offers a more subtle solution with her "Time" rings, a "jewellery system which allows the wearer to mark a significant piece of time." Enter your data (date, time, etc.) into a computer program and it uses the numbers to create a unique shape for your ring. Personalized but private.

Luisa Bruni / Lise Schønberg

Now that summer is officially over, it's time for rain, rain and rain. I should be sick of the wet stuff but I can't get enough of these "Plink!" rings by Italy's Luisa Bruni.

Of course, the plus-side of living in rainy Vancouver is that when it's dry, it looks a little like this.

Dominique Thomas-Vansteenberghe / Superstar in Fashion (Ann Lund Würtz)

Dominique Thomas-Vansteenberghe has lots of jewellery for your fingers... but no rings. That is, you won't find any circular bands in her gallery. The Belgian jeweller revels in non-traditional shanks, from T-bars to vesica pisces to an unclosed, twisting line, all designed to adorn your fingers. Just no rings.

Tamara Navama / Tom Schmelzer

I can't quite decipher Israeli artist Tamara Navama's "I Am Writing" series. With those tangled connections of copper wire, perhaps it's a commentary on email and modern communication. Or maybe it's just stylized chicken scratch. Either way, visit her site for more.

Olga Konopka / Claudio Paniagua / Codigo Mio

Variations on a theme: UK jeweller Olga Konopka plays with many iterations of gold dots on silver.

Meanwhile, Spain's Claudio Paniagua uses the same two metals to explore circles and spheres.

Allyson Gee / Anna Sue Lorenz

In the artist's own words:

"I am particularly interested in how entomology and lepidoptery collections are displayed in uniform alignment in cabinets and drawers. Drawing aesthetic inspiration from this, I create geometric structures that imitate the display cases that the insects are butterflies are held in."

That artist? Scotland's Allyson Gee.

Aquvii / Noemi Klein / Catherine Michiels / Bohem / Luis Morais

What's this?

Does this clue help?

How about now?

Combine all three "skull parts" rings and you get — surprise! — a skull. Rings by Japan's Aquvii.

Above, some girly skulls from London's Noemi Klein (top left), Los Angeles' Catherine Michiels (bottom left) and Japan's Bohem (right).

Bai Yang Qiu / Henriette White / Blue Barkes

Are you ok with white after Labour Day? I sure am, especially when it comes to this ring in recycled styrofoam by Chinese jeweller Bai Yang Qiu. She has lots of jewellery made from recycled material, like the "$¢ent" necklace of perfume samples!

Ok, what if it's white as in Henriette White? The South African jeweller, who now resides in Holland, made these bright rings using perspex and aluminum.
