Alidra Alic's dreamily surrealist "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" collection gives a stunning glimpse into the jewelry designer's looking-glass aesthetic. Inspired by the decorative floral motifs that emerged from the romantic period of the 1800s, the mostly resin and plastic-based creations exude a wondrous, logic-defying sensibility.

To craft the collection, the Copenhagen-based designer applied self-invented techniques to create hundreds of plastic forms—a rigorous process which can take as long as six months to complete. She also incorporates additional materials, such as freshwater pearls (like in the "Drink Me" ring, pictured below) and precious stones, as well as gold and silver.

The outcome makes for a fantastical series of lightly-colored rings redolent of illustrations from the pages of a Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale.

While these grandiose pieces may not be ideal for everyday wear, consider them the perfect props for your next mad tea party.
