Contemporary Acrylic Necklace by Sue Gregor

This necklace is individually made using actual leaves from vetch, yarrow and skeleton rubber tree leaves. It was inspired by an ancient Etruscan necklace.

This necklace is reversible both sides are a sampler of different plant designs. It is made using my own method of dying and embossing 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.

For the subject I choose quite ordinary plants and weeds, as well as textiles . I hope that the wearer will not only enjoy them as jewellery but also review their appreciation of the natural world. I set out to create a marriage between the industrial and the organic. I want to create a feeling of celebration between material and subject.
