The segmented wings are my favourite, I love the cuff one.

These are lovely. But even thought I know it's ridiculous to respond to jewelry* with "that's so impractical," it does seem hard to appreciate these as anything other than art objects you just happen to be able to wear, rather than adornments that are raised to the level of art. Still, they're so gorgeous.

*(or shoes, for that matter)

Are toys ever practical?
