This recycled plastic cuff (or bracelet) is made using Hydrangea and Madder leaves. The floral, botanical design is employing the colours to create both a contemporary and a vintage feel. I collect dry and press the leaves. Then heat the acrylic and press the leaves into the surface. I then use them like a stencil to apply the colours. The leaves are then peeled off to reveal the design. This is a method of dying and embossing plastic jewellery I developed myself. I call it 'fossilised plastic' due to the fine detail which it is possible to capture on the embossed surface so they are similar to fossils. 

I choose quite ordinary plants and weeds to create my floral jewellery designs. I hope that the wearer will not only enjoy them as jewellery but also review their appreciation of the natural world.
