morinoTaking “Old World” tech and twisting it into something fashionable and chic? It’s enough to give you a “geekgasm.”

This adjustable, black rhodium-plated, recycled brass wrap ring by Robynn Molino was inspired by those vintage receipt print ribbons. Once a mundane throwaway, the random sequence of number and symbols now coil around a finger. Los Angeles-based Molino salutes reclaimed materials and vintage inspirations in her handcrafted work. A unisex style, this Number Plate Ring is easily adjusted to a larger or smaller size by twisting along the spiral.

Who would have thought that binary hieroglyphics have now become a sought-after look in this iTech age.
