In her fantastic 'Planet Corian' collection, jewelry designer Sophie Thomas challenged herself to create stunning chunky ring designs purely out of Corian.

This material is quite a unique choice for accessories as it is usually used for kitchen counter tops and tiles and not for fashionable adornments. Instead of conforming to these stylistic norms, the designer created a vibrant collection of statement jewels that are sure to stand out with their architecturally inspired shapes, reminiscent of alien space rocks.

Like miniature sculptures that are meant to be worn on the hand, the chunky ring designs created by Sophie Thomas in her 'Planet Corian' series demonstrate the full range of possibilities and the creative freedom that this unlikely material allows for.
