Drive In Style
A keyring made from an old license plate? Now that's a match made in automobile heaven. These keyrings are cut from real state license plates, and each letter sits on top of a piece of recycled map. The letter is encased in glass with a lead-free solder backing and attached to a stainless steel keyring. These personalized pieces by Allison Strine have a sense of history and mystery as you wonder what car and state your key ring used to call home. Handmade in Georgia. Your choice of letter.

- the maker
Artist Allison Strine's work is very much a reflection of who she is. Each piece has loads of personality, lots of layers and colors and a bit of tongue-in-cheek humor to make it one-of-a-kind. Strine's work includes using found objects, like license plates, and also mixed media and collage to create miniature canvases and works of art.
To create her work, Strine goes through a big process to make a tiny object. She uses patterned tissue papers, transparencies, specialty papers, magazine clippings and acrylic paint to create numerous backgrounds. Then, she creates separate images and words and lays them over the background. These large canvases are then transferred onto small pendants.
Strine's driving purpose is to make miniature art that sends a positive message to women. Each piece is a tiny world of detail, which she hopes the wearer will explore and appreciate. Her characters are an array of colors, sizes and shapes to emphasize the importance of inner beauty and individuality.
