Description

This handmade designer recycled plastic cuff or bracelet is made using leaves. My unusual plant jewellery is created by collecting, drying and pressing the individual leaves. The acrylic is heated and the leaves are pressed into its surface. I then use them like a stencil to apply the colours. The leaves are peeled off to reveal the unique, colourful design. This is a method of dying and embossing plastic jewellery I developed myself. I call it 'Fossilised Plastic' due to the fine detail that's captured on the embossed surface - so they are similar to fossils.

I choose quite ordinary plants and weeds to create my floral art jewellery designs. This botanical statement cuff evokes both a contemporary and a vintage feel, appealing to mothers, daughters and aunts alike. I hope that the wearer will not only enjoy them as jewellery but also review their appreciation of the natural world.

British fashion - grown and handmade in UK.
