This handmade designer perspex chain necklace is made using blades of grass to create the design. I have also introduced primary colours to lift the stripes and make it zing. At the back of my mind I was thinking of Humbug Sweets from my childhood.
My unusual plant jewellery is created by collecting, drying and pressing the individual leaves of grass. This is a method of dying and embossing plastic I developed myself. Every detail of the flowers and leaves are captured so they are like a fossil or a memory of each blade of grass. The acrylic is heated and the leaves are pressed into its surface. I then use them like a stencil to apply the colours. The leaves are peeled off to reveal the unique design. This is a method of dying and embossing plastic jewellery I developed myself. I call it 'Fossilised Plastic' due to the fine detail that's possible to capture on the embossed surface - so they are similar to fossils.
A stunning, statement necklace made from 100% recycled and recyclable acrylic.
