These perspex earrings are made using conifer tree leaves. I collect, dry and press the leaves then heat the acrylic and press the leaves into the surface. I use them like a stencil to apply the colours (in this case grey and gold). The skeleton leaf is then peeled off to reveal the design. This is a method of dying and embossing plastic I developed myself. I call it ‘fossilised plastic’ due to the fine details, like fossils, that are captured on the embossed surface.
I choose quite ordinary plants and weeds to create my designs. These botanical earrings evoke both a contemporary and a vintage feel. I hope that the wearer will not only enjoy them as jewellery but also review their appreciation of the natural world.
