Description

This contemporary perspex and silver rectangular earrings were inspired by looking at animation films like those by Studio Ghibli. I wanted to capture the halcyon summer days that are often used as the Studio Ghibli settings.


This colourful art jewellery is handmade using hydrangea flowers, geraniums, box hedge leaves and fern leaves which I found in Victoria Park, near my house. 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 (in this case pinks, reds, greens. blues and oranges), which give my floral jewellery a modern feel. The skeleton leaf is then peeled off to reveal the design.  This is a method of dying and embossing plastic I developed myself. I call it 'Fossilised Plastic'. Every detail of the flowers and leaves are captured so they are like a fossil or a memory of each unique flower or leaf.
