The Lou Zeldis Ring



Yup, that is a ring. My new favorite. Yet another delightfully unique find at Evolve Boutique the other week (Cath and I did some damage there).

I can definitely understand why this ring wouldn't be for everyone (I promise the prominent body parts don't look nearly as prominent without a macro zoom through my camera lens), but I love the delicate silhouette against the heavy, organic clump of metal. And it's one-of-a-kind. I usually don't splurge on jewelry because I can't tell a piece of cut glass from a diamond (not an exaggeration), but with pieces like this I could fill up my non-existent jewelry box fast.

Is anyone else familiar with Lou's work? Apparently he is a former actor from New York who now resides in Bali and creates these really gorgeous pieces of jewelry. He doesn't have an online site, but apart from visiting Evolve, I found a few places online that carry his stuff, here and here. And here is a little more info on the elusive Lou.

My fiance bought me Lou earrings from Evolve for my birthday last year. They're round bits of dangly turquoise and I love them--in fact, I wore them today!

Oooooo, I love it!! You should check out Pamela Love, if you haven't already. Her pieces tend to fall into the grotesque category. God, I love it all.

lisa said...

Nice find, Lauren! It looks like a carving off the wall of a Hindu temple.

Muriel Mercurial said...

That piece is so gorgeous and classic I actually thought it was an antique at first. I love your taste in jewelry!

....maybe 2 wee slices of black tape on the prominent body parts...a la network television or is this a cable only ring? Lovely in either case.

Nice!

Franco said...

WOW, that is beautiful, it looks like wax, i really love it, so unique.

Franco said...

you know what I was thinking? you know how you have a list of local blogs? well you could create a map of metro atlanta and then point out every local blog, it's just an idea that popped in my mind,

I wonder if the bust has a Balinese influence. it reminds me of the dancing girls on the walls of Angkor Wat.

wow, it took me a minute to figure out what I was looking at there! I like it. I have a naked-lady ring too (very different to yours though) - I love it cause people always go in for a closer look then laugh when they realise what it is!
I also love it because my grandpa gave it to me when I was a little kid, he found it on the beach & thought it was really funny!

Shelly's Style Shop said...

Nice ring! I like to find things that are different, too. Evolve sounds like a great place to shop!

Sal said...

What a fantastically eye-catching piece.

I like it! I think it's an interesting piece, and the body parts are not that prominent... they are all the same color, so it's kind of hard to distinguish.

I'm the same way with jewelry - I can't tell the difference between most of the stuff, until it turns my finger green...

The figure reminds me of a belly dancing outfit!

Ace said...

whoa, now that is a ring my friends. I love it. And fear not Audrey is coming, I can't pass up more pictures of her with that little baby dear and I'm definitely going to have check out Erika Kurihara. Thanks for the tip!

Fell4fashion said...

do you both know of any good thrift/vintage places around atlanta? thanks!!!

ZombieLace said...

I will have to check out this Evolve of which you speak... and maybe even get accesorized with some nakedness! I love it when you guys post about local things for me to blow my cash on :~)

Rachael said...

Man, that ring is great, but I really like your flower pot! Is that one of the little sea urchin things from Heliotrope?

Sharon Rose said...

Hi there-very unique and unusual, great choice!

Savvy Mode SG said...

very unique piece.

Kay said...

I know what you mean, he seems a little self-important to me.

The ring is really special, good choice.
