These earrings are made using real tiny Hydrangea flowers that I have collected from my garden in Bristol. It is made using my own method of dying and embossing plastic which I call 'Fossilized Plastic' due to the fine detail that's captured on the embossed surface - so they are similar to fossils. I harness nature to create original pieces. They are a memory of each individual hydrangea flower.
Each piece of jewellery uses an individual, real plant. The delicate process of creating each piece means that even the veins of the leaf will show, embossed into the acrylic. This means that as well as every piece being handcrafted each one is also unique.
All the acrylic I use is made from 100% recycled materials. It is also free from volatile organic compounds and hydrofluorocarbon making it more environmentally friendly.
These earrings measure 12mm x 5mm deep and the total drop is 50mm. The ear wires are made from sterling silver.
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.
