Earrings by Sue Gregor Recycled Plastic earrings My unusual plant jewellery is created by collecting, drying and pressing the individual hydrangea 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 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 unusual and unique jewellery designs. These botanical statement earrings evoke both a contemporary and a vintage feel, appealing to mothers, girlfriends, sisters and friends alike. I hope that the wearer will not only enjoy them as jewellery but also review their appreciation of the natural world.British fashion - grown and handmade in the UK.40mm diameter disc x 5mm (D) (60mm total drop)Sterling Silver and AcrylicMade from 100% recycled and recyclable acrylic, which is free from volatile organic compounds and hydrofluorocarbon and so more environmentally friendly.
