Start writing those Christmas lists early as Grimes has made her first foray into jewellery design, teaming up with Montreal-based jeweller and sculptor Morgan Black.
Their first joint creation are ‘Grimes Pussy Rings’, which feature, as one might expect, colourful sculpted vaginas, reports Pitchfork. The singer posted an image to the designs on her Tumblr yesterday.
The Montreal electro-pop artist, real name Claire Boucher, seems to have worn one of the creations on her UK television performance this week on ‘Later With Jools Holland’, which you can watch by clicking on the link at the end of the article.
Grimes wrote on Twitter yesterday that she is planning to start shooting the new video for ‘Genesis’ in Los Angeles in June. Giving a taster of what the video might involve, she tweeted:
