‘Les Enfants Terribles’ , one half of two rings. Inspired by 17th century half hoop rings.

Nature’s teeth mold set in gold.

We constructed ‘Les Enfants Terribles’ to live outside the rules of society, to escape into the world of the game. The stones are set closed-back, but look at their colours. Nothing is random; each colour contests the other. We threw the colour chart out.

The other half. While there are many multi gemstone rings, there’s nothing like stones whose colours you cannot quite remember.

Even a better teeth mold than the earlier.

March is a very exciting month for us.

I usually like to keep this space as far away from the real world as possible, but I would like to share this with readers, you. Do you know what keeps you happy and healthy (if you are planning to live out this life)?

In trying to know what makes us happy, there are very few studies that go on long enough to follow the lifetimes of those they study. Here are the results of a 75 year-old study, lessons from the longest study on happiness.

We’ve all been happy before, but happy for a long time? I’ll rob you.

 

 

Rings we made.
