The one-and-only National Metal Museum is hosting a likewise unique exhibition of jewelry from Memphis artist and MCA graduate, Thomasin Durgin, who spent all of last year crafting one ring per day. Located alongside the museum’s permanent collection in the grand library building, Durgin’s thoughtful pieces can be infinitely wearable and lovely, or highly conceptual comments on the world around us. She is also a regular vendor for the museum’s gift shop. Thomasin Durgin: Ring-A-Day is on display at the Metal Museum until Dec. 1, 2011. Visit the artist’s website here.
