Czech artist Anna Curlejová turns tools of art into the art itself with her colored pencil jewelry. With a rainbow of pencil colors at her disposal, she slices the wood and crayon in different angles and shapes to create her unique designs. Once she’s achieved the desired shapes, the pendants are lacquered to protect the design and give it a glossy finish.

Her Etsy shop has tons of whimsical wearable art. Check out some of our favorites after the break.

I lost my real high school class ring. Never even considered getting one in college. I didn’t exactly have much school spirit. Besides, I did all that work and all I had to show for it was a piece of paper and crippling debt.

Amazingly enough, I can get a Jedi Order class ring for only $59.99 without actually earning it!

Well, I actually have to lift a finger to put it on. If I went to class then I could probably just float it on to my finger—but whatever.

The Element Cube Kickstarter has fused 62 elements into one compact cube that sits on your desk. Yep, it’s a metal cube that sits there, anxiously awaiting the day one of your co-workers asks “what is that”?

Then you hit ’em with some science.

That pretty cool I guess, but we think the wearable versions are far more interesting. You can carry over half of the known elements around wherever you go in the form of a necklace or bracelet. Plus, all cubes will come with an SGS material analysis report, documenting that all 62 elements are present.

Check out the project video and additional images after the break for more info…

This Dragon Ball / Legend of Zelda hybrid ring is definitely one of a kind. It was designed by Takayas Custom Jewelry for a client that couldn’t decide between the two themes for an anniversary gift.

She decided she wanted ring to have the Dragon Ball elements on one half of the band, the Zelda elements on the other half, and the two designs to merge in the middle as a hybrid nod to each series.

When in doubt, mashup all the things.

First off, this is one hell of a combo. Isn’t that Dragon Draper necklace awesome? You can get them in several different colors from Art by Aelia.

Second, that Choco/Mog tattoo! It’s a fantastic addition to the body art on our friend EmmaLee (aka Feyith) who also sent us pics of her amazing Firefly tattoo earlier this year.

monopoly engagement

Ordinarily, Monopoly tears people apart. This might be the first time the game ever brought people closer together.

Justin Lebon hired wood-worker Mark Becker to create this gorgeous custom Monopoly board as a unique way to propose to his girlfriend Michal Ott. He writes:

The reason I chose a homemade monopoly board is because: A) it’s michals favorite game B) we play on a “Glenmoor monopoly” board I made in high school, and it’s missing pieces :/ it’s fun, but when you pull a chance card that says “go to reading railroad” and nothing on the board matches…. It makes it kinda difficult. Anyways, monopoly board idea is born. All of the spaces have a special meaning to us.

I handed her a pair of loaded dice. They would only allow her to roll a 7. The number she needed to land on Chance. That’s where I put the “will you marry me card” Michal takes the dice. Rolls a 7. Says” Ooh a Seven! 1,2,3,4,5,6,7! Ooh, Chance!…”

She reads the chance card out loud “…Will you marry me?” and said “is this REAL!?” I said ” what else does the card say” … Michal replies “If yes advance to luxury tax” After michal quickly moved her piece to luxury tax I got down on one knee and poured my heart out. I said everything I wanted to say and took my time. It was great. Then I reach down into my pocket and pulled out.. A long Wire key. Michal had gone through a lot at this point and was still trying to put it all together. I asked her if she would marry me. She said yes. I asked if she wanted to see something really cool. She nodded her head up and down. I took the wire key and popped open a secret door underneath the luxury tax.

Check out all the details of the board and the proposal story in the gallery after the break…
