Go Rabid or Fleather?

Go Rabid or Fleather?

I do feel slightly pressurised a little to play 'ring' catch-up when I see collections of knuckledusters from the likes of Foxyman.  Oh and then I remember that I have lost many a ring in the past from doing that fiddly 'put-on-take-off'.  I think they're strewn around random restaurants, pubs and parks in London.

Still, seeing as I've cured my affliction of leaving umbrellas all over the place, I reckon I can put some concentration and effort into stopping myself from ring littering.  Fleathers on Etsy who also have quite an inspiring blog I Heart Topstitch have made my eyes feast on their Rabidfox line which largely consists of rings of the animal kingdom.  They need to be worn mixed metal style (even though that would infuriate some people…) and in multiples of two so that a pair of octopus on the middle finger do battle with unicorns on the index.  No prizes for guessing who'd win…





Or if you're not piercing challenged like I am (pus pus pus…), then perhaps the original strand of Fleathers' jewellery line might literally tickle your fancy.  The earrings consist of leather faux feathers as well as real feathers in different colour combos… all built with the purpose for rhythmic head swaying that looks super pretty in fading light (is it freaking ppl out that it's getting dark waaaay quicker now…)

    One of those octopus rings might actually slightly curb my intense longing for one of Antonio Palladino’s…

    I been looking around, in every shop where I could possibly afford to buy something, for rings. but haven´t seen any good ones. These rings are absolutely what I been looking for. And I prefer them being in mixed up metal style. So much more fun.

    I had the same ring issue–either losing them or cracking/losing the stones due to being too rough. Seem to have cured it and would love to get one of those rabbit rings.
