J’adore | Old Weston sterling silver screw rings

Twitter is a double-edged sword. While there are the always negative, hateful tweeters there are also the uber-talented, insightful and critical ones as well. Kalpna Patel, a.k.a. @GhostfaceKnitta, is the latter. Not only are her tweets a mix of wit (very different from malicious sarcasm) and intelligence but she is also a talented crafter. I fell head over heels in love with her handmade sterling silver screw rings ($72, Old Weston).

The sterling silver screws, which are available in a number of screw sizes, have been oxidized to give them a more industrial look (check out the creation process here). Keep your eyes on her Etsy shop and blog for new products (including some very cool Eazy-E and Biggie Smalls Moleskines) and opportunities to see the accessories in the flesh, er, metal at crafter’s markets.
