Description

This skeleton leaf contemporary jewellery cuff is made using the flowers from a type of hydrangea called millefiori. I collect dry and press the flowers. Then heat the recycled plastic and press the flowers into the surface. I then use them like a stencil to apply the colours. The skeleton leaf is then peeled off to reveal the design. This is a method of dying and embossing plastic I developed myself. I call it 'fossilised ' 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.
