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
