My unusual plant jewellery is created by collecting, drying and pressing the individual hydrangea leaves. This is a method of dyeing and embossing plastic I developed myself. Every detail of the flowers or leaves is captured so they are like a fossil or a memory of each leaf. 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, colourful design. This is a method of dyeing and embossing plastic jewellery I developed myself. I call it 'Fossilised Plastic' due to the fine detail that's captured on the embossed surface - so they are similar to fossils.
I choose quite ordinary plants and weeds to create my unusual and unique jewellery designs. These botanical statement earrings evoke both a contemporary and a vintage feel, appealing to mothers & sisters alike.
These floral earrings are made from 100% recycled acrylic, free from volatile organic compounds and hydrofluorocarbon, making them more environmentally friendly.
They measure 40mm across x 5mm deep and the total drop is 60mm. The ear wires are made from sterling silver.
