Earrings by Sue Gregor These handmade designer perspex earrings are made using tiny individual hydrangea flowers . The have a real feel of summer abundance.My unusual plant jewellery is created by collecting, drying and pressing the individual flower. Every detail of the flowers and leaves are captured so they are like a fossil or a memory of each leaf or flower. 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 unusual and unique jewellery designs. These botanical statement earrings evoke both a contemporary and a vintage feel, appealing to the fun side of 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.Made from 100% recycled and recyclable acrylic, which is free from volatile organic compounds and hydrofluorocarbon and so more environmentally friendly.British fashion - grown and handmade in UK.
