Description

These earrings aremade using the leaves from a Choysia bush. They are made using my own method of dying and embossing plastic which I call fossilised Plastic due to the fine detail which it is possible to capture on the embossed surface so they are similar to fossils. 

For the subject I choose quite ordinary plants and weeds, as well as textiles . I hope that the wearer will not only enjoy them as jewellery but also review their appreciation of the natural world.  I set out to create a marriage between the industrial and the organic. I want to create a feeling of celebration between material and subject.

The ear wires are hand made.
