White Island Works rings - art becomes wearable

Konstantinos Papamichalopoulos and Artemis Lydl are a creative couple that I have come to known for a few years now and happy to call friends. They are extraordinary people, smart and artistic, always ready to engage into thoughtful conversation. Constantinos is an accomplished artist that not only paints but also illustrates (has been published numerous times in Greek newspapers and magazines) and draws comics. They both create books , apps, videogames and art. Their most recent venture (apart from making their family bigger) is their extraordinary biomorphic black rings.

The design of the rings derives from Konstantinos' artwork, namely the White Island Works series. They translated fragments of it into small pieces, set as precious gems on rings, ready to be worn by everyone.

They come in various shapes and sizes and new designs are added to the mix. I love the graphic feel of the artwork and the layered edges.

The detail of design and quality of construction is amazing. Even the box they come in looks very fetching. 

You can buy them (and other stuff from the series as well) from their Etsy shop. The prices are amazing. So what are you waiting for?
