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.
