Story:

These handmade designer perspex & sterling silver earrings are made using actual fern leaves. My unusual plant jewellery is created by collecting, drying and pressing the individual leaves. The acrylic is heated and the leaves are pressed into its surface. I then use them as 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 possible to capture on the embossed surface – so they are similar to fossils.

I choose quite ordinary plants and weeds to create my floral art jewellery designs. The edges are faceted and hand polished. These botanical statement earrings evoke both a contemporary and a vintage feel, appealing to friends, daughters and aunts alike. I hope that the wearer will not only enjoy them as jewellery but also review their appreciation of the natural world.

I make handmade contemporary jewellery each piece, if it is a necklace, earring, or cuff, is individually handmade using real flowers and leaves to create the designs. I collect dry and press the leaves and flowers and then use them to create the designs. The leaves or flowers perish in the process so each piece is unique as are all leaves and flowers . The surface is embossed with fine detail of the foliage shows. They are a memory or a ‘fossil’ of each individual leaf or flower. My work changes with the seasons as plants grow up and die down. I have always found observing how beautiful the world is at this moment, has got me over many things. So I want to share this with the people who wear my jewellery.

Made with 100% Recycled Acrylic

It is important to me that I am not contributing to the increase of plastic waste but am doing something to re-purpose some of it. All the acrylic I use is made from 100% recycled materials. It is also free from volatile organic compounds and hydrofluorocarbon making it more environmentally friendly.
