Earrings by Sue Gregor lThese handmade, designer, recycled plastic & sterling silver earrings are made using the actual leaves from a rubber plant. 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 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. The edges are faceted and hand polished. These botanical statement earrings evoke both a contemporary and a vintage feel, appealing to friends, mums and colleagues alike. I hope that the wearer will not only enjoy them as jewellery but also review their appreciation of the natural world.
