These handmade designer perspex and sterling silver earrings are made using grass that I collected from my garden in Bristol. 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 individual plants. The acrylic is heated and the leaves or petals are pressed into the surface. I then use them like a stencil to apply the colours. 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.
These striped earrings are available in different colours. They're made from 100% recycled and recyclable acrylic, which is free from volatile organic compounds and hydrofluorocarbon and so more environmentally friendly.
They measure 12mm x 5mm, have a 56mm drop and sterling silver fittings.
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.
