Misha paints her designs onto aluminium, then decides whether to use it for cuffs, earrings or necklaces. Every single piece of jewellery is unique. So what is anodised aluminium? The process of anodising aluminium involves submerging the metal in an acid electrolyte bath and passing an electrical current through the solution. Although aluminium benefits from being extremely corrosion resistant, it can still tarnish, oxidise and corrode. The process of anodising aluminium enhances the natural corrosion resistance as well as giving a much more consistent, aesthetic finish. The dyes Misha used are locked into the metal with heat, producing jewellery that is light, very durable, and beautiful, not to mention extremely affordable.
