I was inspired to make this necklace by looking at animations films like those by Studio Ghibli. I wanted to capture the halcyon summer days that are often shown. This chain is made using hydrangea flowers, geranium, box hedge leaves and fern leaves which I found in Victoria Park near my house. It is made using my own method of dying and embossing recycled plastic which I call 'fossilized plastic' due to the fine detail, which it is possible to capture on the embossed surface so they are similar to fossils.
