Description

This handmade designer Perspex cuff (or bracelet) design was inspired by a toy drum I had when I was a child.  The colours I took from a Vintage film book from the 1940's.  I have used Passion flower leaves to make the stripes.  I love their outline it is very fluid and organic.

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