It would be a mistake to appreciate these accessories as purely pretty, for the Take and Give Rings by Verena Schreppel have political connotations.

Outlines of the two continents have been sculpted and extruded to form thick land masses with a cutout for the wearer’s finger. A pale maple wood has been used to carve the Africa accessory, while the Europe band has been forged of gold-plated silver. Making a statement about economic relations between the countries in these regions, the Take and Give Rings are an ironic play on friendship charms that don’t fit together.
