Inspired by Victorian butterfly ring jewellery, these rings are pinned like butterflies in collection cases. A real skeleton leaf has been used to create the design. It is then backed by silver leaf to ape the sheen of a butterfly wing.
These rings are made using my own method of dying and embossing plastic which I call 'fossilized plastic' due to the fine details, like fossils, that are captured on the embossed surface. I harness nature to create original pieces they are a memory of each individual skeleton leaf.
Each Sue Gregor ring is individual and unique, making these botanical beauties both contemporary and classically vintage. A real party piece!
Made from 100% recycled acrylic and sterling silver, this blue ring measures 28mm diameter and comes in a UK size M as standard. Other sizes can be made on request.
Commissioning a piece of work is really exciting – it is a chance to have something made especially for you and an opportunity to really engage in the creative process.
Perhaps you need accessories to go with a particular outfit or a piece of furniture to fit a specific space in your home. We can work with you to design something truly unique. You’ll be able to discuss your ideas, likes and dislikes with the Maker and together create a piece of craft, handmade for you.
This is just a first step, so don't worry, there’ll be plenty of chances to discuss details before finalising a commission.
