Jewelry - Non-Metal • CUSTOM COMMISSIONS
Whimsical one-of-a-kind joy is the magical superpower you will receive by wearing wearable art. I am Azania Tripp (she/her), I make mixed media collage one-of-a-kind wearable art and visual art pieces out of recyclable material using themes from nature and political activism. I use found a paper from my travels to Singapore, Michigan, New York, and Minnesota where I am from. The wearable art pieces, tell a story of my historical trauma and how afro-futurism and joy are my center for healing.

I am a self-taught jewelry creator. I use paper from my travels to Singapore; Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia; Sydney, Australia, and in the U.S. from Michigan, New York, and Saint Cloud Minnesota where I am from. I repurpose the paper, dry flowers, string, cloth, and more to develop original collage work for people to wear. All the pieces are lightweight. I use thin birch wood, cork, or card stock as the base surface. I coat the jewelry pieces in resin for the durability of the work.
