I love the work of Cinnamon Lee, a Sydney-based contemporary jewellery and lighting artist.  I particularly love her Covert Jewels range, where she creates beautiful works which conceal intricately worked secrets for the wearer, rather than the viewer.

A recent exhibition of these rings featured an inspired custom-built illuminated display system incorporating pre-programmed LEDs, which was specially designed to light up the detailed interiors of each ring.  How great is that?

I love the butterfly one, although you would have to wear in on a chain… such a shame to hide the detail by wearing it on your finger.

I kind of like that – it’s your own wee secret. Nobody else is in on it.

Gorgeous butterfiles! Alas – can you believe I am not a ring person? Got 2 on the right finger but other than that I am a free bird — I appreciate great jewellery but simply don’t wear it! weird, I know, among all the other things!
Making Quinoa tabbouleh tonight….
Your recipes are so cute! Thanks again…

ANOTHER clever creative! I’m not a big ring person, either. I do love the slightly covert nature of these designs, though…

Hope the Quinoa Tabbouleh is a winner!

Cheers from Syders 🙂

Beautiful designs, but I really don’t see the sense at all in hiding them. 🙂

Ah Mags – that suggests to me that you are practical and open-hearted. No secrets with you! 🙂

This is so unique, what a cool idea. They are very pretty, thanks for sharing.

Happy you like them too, Eliza Dreams! 🙂

would be gorg to write vows in for a groom’s ring!
