This handmade designer perspex cuff (or bracelet) desgin was inspired by a textile design from the 1970's. It is based on the fabric of a vintage dress. It has leaves and flowers from four different plants - two types of Hydrangea, Madder leaves and Marigold leaves.
My unusual plant jewellery is created by collecting, drying and pressing the individual leaves. 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 dying and embossing plastic jewelry 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.
I choose quite ordinary plants and weeds to create my floral art jewellery designs. This floral, botanical statement cuff evokes both a contemporary and a vintage feel, appealing to aunts, nieces, friends and girlfriends alike. I hope that the wearer will not only enjoy them as jewellery but also review their appreciation of the natural world.
