This handmade acrylic bangle or cuff is made using leaves from a Whitebeam tree.
I collect, dry and press the leaves, then heat the acrylic and press the leaves into the surface. I then use them like a stencil to apply the fresh green colours. This is a method of dyeing and embossing plastic I developed myself. I call it Fossilized Plastic due to the fine detail which it is possible to capture on the embossed surface, so they are similar to fossils.
Handmade using 100% recycled acrylic, this cuff is 45mm wide.
Available in 3 sizes: Small are 15-16cm with a 25mm gap, Medium are 16.5-18cm with a 28mm gap and the Large are 18.5-20cm with a 35mm gap.
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.
