Description

This necklace is 24 inches in length. It also has an adjustable chain at the back so it can be made longer if desired by the wearer. This is a double sided necklace. It has the skeleton leaf design on the front. On the Reverse it has an image of vintage lace from the 1960's.I wanted the necklace to feel like it was cut from a bigger image. I like the interplay of the shape of the bead and the image on it.

The necklace is made using my own method of dying and embossing plastic which I call fossilized 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.
