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."

End result after making this tutorial. I thought some softer, watercolor shapes would go nicely with the hard geometry of the asa-no-ha design. I used this technique for the watercolor effect, and dabbed some Zoya Maria Luisa randomly on top for golden sparkle (I fucking. love. that polish).
I want to live here.
This is what Animal Crossing would look like in real life omg.
Photographer Marianne Kjølner snapped this pair of photographs of a bizarre tree in Denmark. Of the photo she says: “This old pink house is situated at the old dunes, a few hundred meters from the west coast, a very windy place were there isn’t much that can grow. So the tree can only grow where it has shelter.”
Probably the only tapered scale sleeve you’ll find on the internet!
