Description

This handmade designer perspex chain necklace is made using actual skeleton leaves to create the design. My unusual plant jewellery is created by collecting, drying and pressing the individual Fern 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 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.

The construction of the necklace was inspired by Victorian jet necklaces which were made using links. This botanical statement chain necklace evokes both a contemporary and a vintage feel, appealing to mothers, girlfriends, sisters and friends alike. A classic piece that can be worn for years. I hope that the wearer will not only enjoy them as jewellery but also review their appreciation of the natural world.
