So, I've been making rings out of recycled plastic. I wanted to experiment with aluminum cans as well. I tried my 'jumbo flower' design, and I'm really excited with what I came up with! This ring is made up of 6 hand-cut layers. The tiny circle in the center is recycled plastic, the next 4 layers are aluminum from various cans, and at the base underneath is also recycled plastic (since aluminum is so thin). The result is a fun, colorful piece of wearable art! It will surely draw attention :-) I'm also making brooches and necklaces with this same flower design.
