A Collection of ‘Red HerRings’

A Little Word Play

Red herrings: I quite like words, I like word play even more.
This is a re-visitation of an old project – in fact it was the project I set myself for my final year at university.

The source of my inspiration is the dictionary. I have been through my copy with a fine toothed comb and collected all the words I can find with the word ‘ring’ in it somewhere. Firing, remebering, enduring and hard-of-hearing are a few examples. I’m working on fabricating a range of words into rings to be worn. Check back for updates and to see how I have interpenetrated the words I choose.

Here are some that I have already created;

Tiring    Remembering    Heartstrings    Hard-of-hearing     Enduring    Firing    Entering/Injuring

  1. Fun with the dictionary, hmm? Way to create something cool from something simple!

    1. Yeah I’m a bit obsessed with this at the moment. Mostly for my own enjoyment but so glad you think it’s cool.

  2. these rings are all such cool ideas!! it’s interesting to see how you interpret each word.

    1. Thanks Arinn! (lovely name btw) I’m really eager to get on to doing some more – I’ve been planning ‘desiRing’ for a while now but that work seems to encompass so much! Thank you for visiting :)
