Um. I love this. Beautiful, delicate rings… made of soap!
Korean artist Kyeok Kim has created these lovely pieces as part of her Jewellery as Second Skin series. The idea is that as you wash your hands, the ring slowly disappears leaving your hands smelling like a drop of perfume. It is meant to be “… a sensory experience [that becomes] an unconscious ornament.” Now, don’t get me wrong, I would love an unconscious ornament… but these rings are so gorgeous, I might just opt for never washing my hands while wearing them. Not the point, I know, but I just don’t think I could watch them dissolve!
