Description

The stripes on these beautiful long oval earrings are made using passion flower leaves. 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 is captured on the embossed surface - so they are similar to fossils.

I choose quite ordinary plants and weeds to create my floral art jewellery designs. These floral, botanical statement earrings evoke both a contemporary and a vintage feel, appealing to girlfriends, 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.
