Description

This perspex cuff (or bracelet) is made using Geranium leaves. I made these Ultra Violet pieces in homage to the Suffragettes.  Purple and white are their colours. 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 use them like a stencil to apply the colours. The leaves are 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 that's captured on the embossed surface (so they are similar to fossils).
