Description

These handmade designer perspex and sterling silver earrings are made using grass that I collected from my garden in Bristol. At the back of my mind I was thinking of Humbug Sweets from my childhood.

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's 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 botanical statement earrings evoke both a contemporary and a vintage feel, appealing to friends, sisters and colleagues alike, for their fun, joyful liveliness! I hope that the wearer will not only enjoy them as jewellery but also review their appreciation of the natural world.
