Teal & Raspberry Hydrangea Long Drop Earrings by Sue Gregor

These handmade contemporary earrings are made using 100%recycled perspex and sterling silver earring,  I have used the actual flowers from three verieties of hydrangea to create the design . My unusual botanic jewellery is created by collecting, drying and pressing the individual flowers or leaves. The recycled acrylic is heated and the leaves are pressed into its surface. I then use them like a stencil to apply the colours. The flowers are peeled off to reveal the unique, colourful design. This is a method of dying and embossing plastic jewelry 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.
