Brooklyn-based jewelry designer Matthew White, the creator of the sterling silver spork, has now fashioned this ladies' Full Finger Ring ($175). It's a sterling silver ring that is for, and looks like, an index finger (just don't call it a FingeRing).
The band of this ring is made to fit on the middle section of the finger to allow for full finger mobility. The band is also adjustable to fit most size fingers.
Director David Lynch is an avid meditator. His twice daily Transcendental Meditation (TM) practice spans over 40 years. In fact, he's such a fan of TM that he started a foundation in 2005 to "ensure that every child anywhere in the world who wanted to learn to meditate could do so."
It has given me effortless access to unlimited reserves of energy, creativity and happiness deep within. This level of life is sometimes called “pure consciousness”—it is a treasury. And this level of life is deep within us all.
But I had no idea how powerful and profound this technique could be until I saw firsthand how it was being practiced by young children in inner-city schools, veterans who suffer the living hell of post-traumatic stress disorder and women and girls who are victims of terrible violence.
The David Lynch Foundation now serves both children and adults around the world, teaching them the healing power of meditation. Through the end of the year, 20% of the proceeds from his line of "Meditating Eye" jewelry goes to the foundation to help them with their mission.
The entire gold and silver tone collection is available at online retailer ALEX AND ANI.
By laminating hundreds of the paper pages of vintage books together and then finishing them with a high gloss coating, artist Jeremy May is able to create these marvelous pieces of literary jewelry.
The paper is selected and carefully removed from a book, and the jewellery re-inserted in the excavated space.
Each piece is impossible to replicate, and is unique to the wearer. The beauty of the jewels extends within the piece: text and images pass all the way though the object, only exposed at the surfaces – giving a tantalising glimpse of the book within.
He's made rings, bracelets, necklaces, pendants, and earrings in this method. Take a look.

Last week, Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates expressed his regret over Windows' Control-Alt-Delete function, stating, "If I could make one small edit, I'd make that a single key."
