Three laser cut leather feathers and turquoise beads hang from a delicate antique brass chain.
**The leather used in all of my pieces are from recycled veg tan scraps and surplus leather samples. The beads used in all of my pieces are fair trade findings from Turkey, China, & Canada**
While I was in grad school pursuing a Masters of Fine Arts, I recognized that the laser cutter I was using to build furniture for classrooms in Africa also had the potential to produce wearable art.... and that is how the Aztecan Collection was born! Lots of love (and sweat) was put into this piece. First, the design was produced digitally, using Adobe Illustrator. Next, the digital designs were taken to a laser cutter, which cut out the shapes from a large hide of veg tan leather. The veg tan cut outs were then hand dyed, finished, and assembled.
