Earrings by Sue Gregor These handmade, designer, recycled plastic earrings are made using real leaves that I have collected from my garden in Bristol. It is made using my own method of dying and embossing which captures the details of the leaves like a fossil. I harness nature to create original pieces. They are a memory of each individual leaf.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 evokes 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.Sterling Silver, Recycled Plastic, Silver Leaf & Resin22mm diameter acrylic resin disc, silver leaf and sterling silver wireBritish fashion - grown and handmade in the UK.Made from 100% recycled and recyclable acrylic, which is free from volatile organic compounds and hydrofluorocarbon and so more environmentally friendly.
