Rings are an understated accessory that make a huge impact on an outfit. With the many things people do to draw attention to their hands, such as making gestures, eating, or fixing their hair, rings instantly get the attention of their audience. But while there are a lot (and I mean a lot!) of ring options out there like simple bands, intricately set stones, and fingertip rings, those who really want to draw attention to their fingers might want to pick this option.

Secret Wood is a Canada-based online shop that sells gorgeous handmade wooden rings with fantasy-like worlds in them. Whether you like spring scenery, snowy winter landscapes, or fiery forests, Secret Wood can create these worlds for you. Each one-of-a-kind ring is made using fresh wood and jewelry resin, and no two rings are identical. In fact, once a buyer has chosen a ring design from their shop, they’ll send over a picture of the ring they made to make sure the buyer is 100% happy with the design.

Each ring is made with love over a period of 5 – 6 weeks. Sure, that’s quite a wait, but can you really hold it against them when each ring is so stunning?

Just check out some of their rings below.

Have you ever seen those delicate little ships in bottles or terrariums with dainty plants inside them? If you're into that sort of thing, you'll definitely love the work of this artist who excels at depicting artworks within test tubes!

For her series Micro Matter, Dutch artist Rosa de Jong creates tiny floating worlds inside test tubes. Her pieces are made up of a variety of materials like sticks her pet cat brought in, rocks from the Caribbean, sand from the Monument Valley, and so many others. She carefully cuts, glues, paints, and sculpts these tiny vertical scenes that look deceptively realistic and whimsical at the same time.

The painstaking process of sculpting a world that fits in the palm of your hand.

Firewood Is Supposed to Be Burned, But This Artist Transforms Them Into Art!

This artist didn’t want to put the beauty of firewood to waste, so he transformed them into artworks!

When you think of firewood, what usually comes to mind are warmth, campfires, and maybe even s'mores. You probably never think of avant-garde home decor. After all, they're just made to be burned to keep you warm, right? But this LA-based designer has different ideas. He transforms firewood into beautiful works of art!

Paul Foeckler is the creator of Split Grain, a site that features "modern, minimalist wood sculptures and lighting". He says that the project started out when he started taking notice of an ordinary piece of firewood and thinking it's too beautiful to burn. He then started experimenting with different types of firewood by cutting the wood into precise slices. He says this brings out the real beauty of the wood, especially when combined with lighting.

Foeckler sells his beautiful lamps at Etsy in the hope that they'll "allow people to reflect upon nature in both intimate and public contemporary spaces." You can get a firewood wall sculpture for £212, and his firewood lamps start at £270.

13 Hyper-Realistic Sculptures That Are So Life-Like You’ll Swear They’re Real

When you can hardly tell the difference between a living model and a sculpture, you know that the artist has taken hyperralism to a higher level!

Have you ever seen a sculpture so lifelike that you were convinced they'd suddenly move while you're staring? If not, then you definitely need to see the works of this insanely talented artist whose eye for detail is astounding!

Carole A. Feuerman is renowned for her hyperrealistic sculptures of people. And she does this with life casts. Carole explains, "I was with a friend who was a professional sculptor. He showed me how to do a life cast. I enjoyed it so much that I started making these pieces."

Carole starts each piece by making casts of her models. The model must hold his or her pose for a while as the plaster sets and dries against the crevices of the model's body. The plaster is then removed using chisels (very intimidating, but not as painful as it seems). She then uses resin, bronze, and paint to give the sculptures their lifelike coloring. Her formula is painstakingly combined to make each surface appear as matte or as glossy as needed. And this process definitely pays off!
