Dangerous Hallucinogen? J Rudy Lewis Says, “Cocktail Ring.”

Datura_wrightii_flowerThis ring–I mean, flower–glows with a cool kind of beautiful danger. It’s proper Latin name is Datura wrightii, and it’s classified as a poisonous, hallucinogenic plant, found in Texas, Arizona–the whole southwest. I like the juxtaposition of its frail, luminous hue and those spikes that drive out of its center. That’s why it would make such a great ring. To my way of thinking.

But I wouldn’t listen to Pink Floyd while designing it. Nick Cave, maybe, or the latest of Tom Waits’ stuff.
