Lisa says: While in college, I took an alternative print process photo class. I learned how to print my photos on aluminum, wood, wallpaper, paper, and candles. Although I enjoyed printing on all of these materials, there is something about the character of the aluminum and its mood that changes depending on how you hold it in the light. Its lightweight qualities were also a plus.
I always have a ton of aluminum scraps left after I make my photo transfers, especially smaller pieces. In the past, I have made business cards from the scraps, but my crafty side wanted to utilize the material in a more creative yet practical manner.
One day of curiosity in the studio turned into my latest earring collection! I used various tools to strike, pierce, and scratch the surface, having each pair of earrings hold its own unique texture and personality.
