Blue/Black Conifer Hoop Earrings by Sue Gregor

My unusual plant jewellery is created by collecting, drying and pressing the conifer leaves. This is a method of dying and embossing plastic I developed myself.  Every detail of the flowers or leaves are captured so they are like a fossil or a memory of each leaf. The acrylic is heated and the leaves are pressed into its surface. I then use them as 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 captured on the embossed surface - so they are similar to fossils.
