Nothing says “Our love will last forever.” like a tiny gold squid encircling your ring finger. This tentacular little beauty was handmade by Portland, OR-based jeweler Cheyenne Weil of gin & butterflies. She custom-makes each Squid Wedding Band by hand-carving the ring in wax and then casting it using the lost-wax method.
"This ring is a highly detailed piece with the squid and water/wave design flowing all the way around the ring, leaving no particular part "up." It is a nice 8mm in width, over 2mm thick, and has a delicious weighty feel."

These adorable miniature food pendants are the work of an artist named Mei and her Minnesota-based company Tiny Hands. Each beautifully detailed, made-to-order piece is handcrafted and… wait for it… smells exactly as delicious as it looks. That’s right, the waffles and pancakes smell like butter, sweetened batter and maple syrup, the fried egg smells like mouthwatering bacon, and then there’s a heavenly slice of blueberry pie, cupcakes, donuts, s’mores, candies, chocolates and even a corn dog. Kawaii!
But that’s not all. Mei also makes scented food-shaped rings, bracelets, earrings, cellphone straps, bookmarks and more. Click here to view the entire range of Tiny Hands food jewelry.

This gorgeous, tentacular object is an American chatelaine dating back to 1887. A chatelaine is a decorative belt hook or clasp worn at the waist with a series of chains suspended from it. They were worn by many housekeepers during the 19th century, with each
tentacle chain fastened to a useful household appendage such as scissors, thimble, watch, key, vinaigrette, household seal, etc.
Denture Jewelry - the stuff of nightmares for some (we’re looking at you, Odontophobes), for others perhaps, a dream come true. We think it’s a bit of both and thus pretty awesome. These bracelets and hair combs were handmade by Mr. Basic using dental acrylic and can be purchased from an Etsy shop called ConcaveOblivion.
Caddisfly larvae construct silk cases decorated with pieces of gravel, sand, twigs, snail shells, and other natural debris. This most often happens during winter months, so the theory behind this behaviour is that they do it to protect themselves from the cold, harsh weather.
Duprat “introduced beads, pearls, turquoise, and 18-karat gold pieces into their environment and let them construct tiny gilded sculptures. Duprat has been collaborating with the larvae since the 1980s. Learn more about his work at Cabinet Magazine.”

“Eyelash jewelry is made by hand-weaving tiny glass beads onto ultra thin wire. This creates a light-weight, flexible band that can be formed to the shape of any eye. Simply bend the jewelry into the proper shape, apply a thin layer of adhesive, and press it directly above your eyelashes.”
"Katakana sound effects have long been a vital part of manga, with authors often using them lavishly throughout sequences to help heighten the visual mood of the story. It’s actually a really interesting topic of thought: designing typography based on the sound effect that each character has."
These striking rings are available through Mitsubai Tokyo. Prices range from smaller characters (ッ) which sell for 7,612 yen to larger characters (ド・ゴ・ハ・ガ) which sell for 23,100 yen.

Are you the sort of person who really wants to make an impression on Halloween but doesn’t want to put in a lot of effort? Or perhaps you’re like us and feel that Halloween is worth celebrating all year round and that pretty much any outfit can be enhanced with a gruesome accent or two. Either way, this awesome jewelry looks like just the ticket.
Olga of OlechckaDesign created this adorable Nyan Cat Internet Meme Necklace that celebrates the cute little kitty with a Pop-Tart body who endlessly flies through space to the tune of an infectious J-pop song leaving a cheerful rainbow in its wake.
The handmade charm was created using Sculpey (polymer clay) and hangs from a 12-inch silver chain. It’s currently available for purchase via Olga’s Etsy shop, OlechckaDesign.
Paris-based artist HoKiou handmakes a variety of whimsical jewelry, including beautiful terrarium-style rings like these four Halloween-inspired pieces. These rings and all sorts of other wearable goodies are currently available via the HoKiou Etsy shop.
