Description

his handmade designer perspex cuff (or bracelet) is made using actual hydrangea flowers which I grow in my garden. 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 jewelry I developed myself. I call it 'Fossilised Plastic' due to the fine detail that's possible to capture on the embossed surface - so they are similar to fossils. I harness nature to create individual pieces which are a memory of each individual flower or leaf.

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 friends, daughters and sisters alike. I hope that the wearer will not only enjoy them as jewellery but also review their appreciation of the natural world.
