Kinetic Works of Art - Jewelry That Move

Lovely jewelry can really move you on a personal level. But what about those pieces who do just that, move! They are definitely not your usual run of the mill, stick-in-the-mud pieces. There are a number of designers who make kinetic jewelry, and here are a few of my favorite ones I'd like to share with you.

Kinekt
Do you ever twiddle the rings on your fingers? Well, Kinekt Design's Gear Ring will let you do more than move the ring around the finger. You can move all those gears on the stainless steel ring! This gives you that extra dimension as you twiddle!  And the industrial mechanical look of the ring really looks cool too wouldn’t you say? And it reminds us not to be a mere cog in the wheel!

Danielle Miller
Hailing from South Carolina, jewelry metal smith Danielle Miller truly understands fidgets in her gadgets. Her modern designs are stunning - in looks and in utter cleverness. Take her sterling silver Mod Rocker rings. There are two motions - the curved rectangle at the top see saws while the stone setting slides freely along it. Reminds me of starship Enterprise from Star Trek.

Beam me up Scotty!
 

Lisa Pavelka
Lisa Pavelka mentioned on her blog she's been "making spinner rings for a few years starting with metal clays, but also dabbling with polymer clay and mixed media creations. Not just rings mind you, but necklaces too!"  Depicted here is her pinwheel design - you know the kind of toy children had in the days before iPad electronic games. Such a fun design as you can spin the middle section like a windmill!

 

Ed Levin
But my absolute favorite are these kinetic earrings by Ed Levin. The loop-the-loop bottom is a delightful mix of compound angles and widths, reminiscent of a musical notation. They are unique, whimsical and handmade from sterling silver.
