Today I want to introduce y’all to a good friend of mine, Sandy Johanson. She was extremely helpful to me when I was learning film photography at Brookdale, especially when it came to printing in the dark room. Beyond that, she is without a doubt THE most prolific artist I know. Every time I’d show up at Brookdale she’d have another set of images, gorgeous images as it turns out, that she was working on.
All of that is well and good, but the reason I wanted to do this article about her is because she has come up with a very unique and wonderful idea…..jewelry made from camera parts! I know at least some of you are thinking, “How gimmicky.” Well, I dare you to think that when you see the pieces she makes, some images of which you can see below.
