Earrings by Sue Gregor These recycled Plastic earrings are made using conifer tree leaves. 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 yellow & green). 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' due to the fine details, like fossils, that are captured on the embossed surface.I choose quite ordinary plants and weeds to create my designs. These botanical earrings evoke both a contemporary and a vintage feel. I hope that the wearer will not only enjoy them as jewellery but also review their appreciation of the natural world. 65mm (H) x 12mm (W) x 5mm (D)Total drop from top of ear wire 90 mmSilver ear wires Made from 100% recycled and recyclable acrylic, which is free from volatile organic compounds and hydrofluorocarbon and so more environmentally friendly.
