I was inspired to make this cuff by looking at animation films like those by Studio Ghibli. I wanted to capture the halcyon summer days that are often shown. This cuff is made using hydrangea flowers geranium, box hedge leaves and fern leaves which I found in Victoria Park near my house.
It is made using my own method of dying and embossing plastic which I call 'Fossilized Plastic' due to the fine detail which it is possible to capture on the embossed surface so they are similar to fossils. I harness nature to create individual pieces which are a memory of each individual flower or leaf.
I use 100% recycled acrylic and this cuff measures 190mm x 5mm x 45mm and fits most wrists.
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.
