For Zero Waste Week, I made this pendant to go with my cuffs and earrings. I hand cut and shaped it as I can collect the off cuts that the local plastic company are throwing away, making even the smallest pieces into something new and saving them from landfill. I think it also makes a softer, more fluid shape, like a pebble. #zerowasteweek
I use my own method of dying and embossing plastic, like fossils, every detail is captured on the embossed surface. The colour (in this case gold & black) is applied around the leaves like stencils. I harness nature to create original pieces, which are a memory of each individual skeleton leaf.
This recycled acrylic pendant is hung on a silver chain and is a classic piece that can be worn for years. Each one is individual and unique, making this botanical beauty both contemporary and classically vintage. A real party item!
Made from 100% recycled and recyclable acrylic, which is free from volatile organic compounds and hydrofluorocarbon and so more environmentally friendly.
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.
