Production Work ~ 2 of 2 photos

My former career was in advertising illustration ...I love all the colors and typefaces dancing before my eyes. Product branding is so much a part of our lives 24/7.

 

So many of these cans are found just lying in the street, or in the garbage. I take them, wash them with soap, and give them a new life. One man's trash is my art supplies.

 

***************************************

These cut outs will become necklaces and earrings.

A lot of aluminum cans...I do NOT ever waste a piece of the can. I use 90% of every single aluminum can in my work.

 

I think photographing still lifes of the cut out pieces is as much fun as creating the jewelry.

 

See next photo....
