Super Karin alert ring

Super Karin saves the world and still manages to look fabulous!

Yippee, I'm on a family trip to Minnesota, USA. An ultimate chance to take a look at local jewelry! Karin Jacobson is a jewelry designer from Minneapolis, who uses sterling silver and lab-grown (less expensive) gems to be able to focus on form and make her designs affordable, this in combination with beauty, craftmanship and great design which is what fine jewellery has always been about. As also with this ring, play is a central theme in her work. Her inspiration comes from science fiction, comic books, mechanical toys and Japanese animation. This ring is called Bubbler and is part of  a series named 'Cocktail Rings'. On the first page of her comic book- catalog, she (as a comic figure called Super Karin) uses it as an alert ring! I thought it was so much fun, I had to share it with you! This comic book is what makes her jewelry stand out.

PS this blog seems to be all about rings, but that is not my intention! There will be other pieces, who knows maybe next time??
