Story:

This handmade contemporary perspex chain necklace’s design was inspired by a textile design from the 1970s. It is based on the fabric of a vintage dress. It has leaves and flowers from four different plants – two types of Hydrangea leaves, Madder leaves and marigold leaves. The construction was inspired by Victorian jet necklaces. I have combined the two to make a new contemporary piece of jewellery.
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.
