I make acrylic contemporary handmade jewellery with botanic designs. Each
piece, if it is a necklace, earring, or cuff, is individually handmade using real flowers and
leaves to create the designs. I collect, dry and press the leaves and flowers and then use
them to create the designs. The leaves or flowers perish in the process so each piece is
unique as are all leaves and flowers . The surface is embossed with fine detail of
the foliage shows. They are a memory or a 'fossil' of each individual leaf or flower. My
work changes with the seasons as plants grow up and die down. I have always found
observing how beautiful the world is, has got me over many things. So I
want to share this with the people who wear my jewellery.
The Jewellery is made from 100% recycled and recyclable materials, it is also free from volatile organic compounds and hydrofluorocarbon which means it's more environmentally friendly. I am doing my bit to the repurposing plastic waste and keep it from just being thrown away and so out of the landfill and the sea.
