Aya explores the intersection of personal histories and craft with technology through a series of earrings named after her grandmother, Mila. Like many women in her generation, Mila was skilled in sewing, crochet, and embroidery. Aya celebrates this tradition by using 3D printing to “embroider” earrings based on a Polish folk pattern.
