Jewel of the day: Beardbangs Small Happy Face Ring Dish
Rather more of a jewel holder of the day, this is quite adorable. You almost want to pick it up and hug it. In my house, with a young cat who LOVES to find and knock things over, I suspect this would be an early casualty of curiosity getting the cat (in trouble), but if you live in a somewhat calmer household and need a place to stash your smaller jewels, this could be a great pick.
Made in Montreal by Etsy seller Beardbangs, they describe it this way: An adorable little guy to happily hold your most precious of little things! A small dish measuring about 1.6″ across and high. Perfect for the bathroom counter or the dresser. This works great as a dish for rings, necklaces or earrings. Handmade with white stoneware clay that is sourced within North America, decorated with underglaze and a non-toxic transparent glaze.
This sells for USD$23,72.
