3/13/05 | Rings at The Carrotbox
For those of you who are allergic to metals and are always on the lookout for jewelry alternatives, you should check out the rings at The Carrotbox. A lot of folks who can’t wear metal jewelry resort to making DIY non-metallic out of beads, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. It’s just sometimes you’d like to be able to BUY a piece of jewerly that you can wear. It seems like non-metallic rings are particularly difficult to find because the band of a ring is almost always made of metal, even if the stones and pieces set in/on it are not. Necklaces and bracelets are more frequently completely non-metallic.
Alice started The Carrotbox after searching all over the web for non-metallic rings for her collectgion and coming up short in places that carried them. From her site:
The Carrotbox is a site dedicated to all those wonderful rings made of lucite, resin, glass, acrylic, perspex, bakelite and even stone — anything, as long as it’s not metal!
Although she doesn’t make and of the rings by hand, most of them aren’t of the “mass-produced” variety and many of the plastic and glass ones are really beautiful and quite collectible. Many of the rings on her site are one of a kind, and sizing varies greatly (i.e. if you see a ring and it’s not in your size, don’t expect her to have one that’s your size in stock). Her site is really nicely designed with easy navigation and her idea is truly unique. Check it out at:
