Luke Jerram

16 Aug

and moving from tough to sweet…I’m blown away by these wildly romantic rings created by multi-faceted artist, Luke Jerram.

prepare yourselves.

for his engagement, he created a talking ring.  etched onto the surface of the silver band, the recording of his proposal can be played on a miniature record player.

g-e-n-i-u-s.

but wait, it gets better…for his wedding, Luke constructed a portrait projecting ring.  inserted with portrait slides, the ring projects the images when properly lit.

if you peruse Luke’s website (which I highly recommend as his projects and installations are equally innovative), you’ll see a somewhat sad note to the story.  some losers broke into the couple’s home and stole their belongings, including the projecting ring, but the artist is working on making a replacement.  kudos, Luke!
