  • I want every single one of her rings cos rings are really the only jewelry worth bothering with and those rings are rings to end all rings.

    Ring-a-ding-ding, baby.

    CB says:

    whereisdesign says:
  • Wow thats amazing!!! I love those rings they are so awesome!!!

    TSJW says:
  • any males leaving comments? i guess that speaks for itself. good design? certainly not. just a good idea for the fashion lovers to devour.

    a man (not woman) says:
  • Wow, I love this!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Renata Rubim says:
  • Maria Cristina made very beautiful jewelry and have to appreciate there work also. I must need to collect pictures like this jewelry for showing to my wife…

  • Seems like rings would make a colorful mess when handling anything, unless it was lacquered. (Doesn’t look like it)

    Mike says:
  • question for a man (not woman):
    what characteristics of a good design this jewelry lacks of? i think it’s creative, beautiful and generally makes you rethink the classical jewelry (what makes it reflective and contemplative). aren’t these all characteristics of a good design?

    woman who knows all men don't think alike says:
  • seriously, where to get it? i have tried to find them as I think is beautiful and an awesome gift for someone who loves art…. any ideas? help me to find it!

    man who really likes this idea says:
  • i have a lot of old and used pencils… i like the concept. i`m very temptend to go “chinese” and start to do works using the same principle and materials, and yes, i think they sould be lacquered…
    give me some credit, at least im not going to say that it was my idea first!
    recicle, reuse, rethink!

  • Looks like the colours will eventually leak due to no final finish (lacquer). On top of that it may not be waterproof. Imagine if it was raining and the colour trickles on to skin/clothes. Afterwards the wood may decay?

    Adliana says:
  • Amazing!!!!I need one!!!

    Nana says:
  • piece of jewellery is not necesserly an eternal object..there is a lot of plastic jewelley which is not scratch proof, or paper jewellery which is not water proof, but is considered to be very good design..like his one..

    I.S says:
  • genial!!! me encanto

    celina says:
  • I really like it quite a lot., I like the idea that each one of them will be absolutely different. But I hope there is some sort of protection on the top to keep the jewelry from losing it’s looks.
