i assumed my collection of cocktail rings bashing around in a drawer probably wasnt so great for them.. and this hand at icing [claire's] of all places said "hey. look at me. i am creepy and functional!" and i said eeeerrm ok. its made out of some cheap ceramic and has spindly alien fingers.. but the bottom is weighted pretty nicely and it seems sturdy enough. i put my really heavy rings [a giant black faceted thing, a stainless steel elephant, and a bejewled hippo] on the thumb as an attempted counterbalance. but as the second picture shows.. there may be too many rings on the fingers. oh well.
