'Humbug' Striped Chain Recycled Perspex Necklace

£149.00

This handmade designer perspex chain necklace is made using blades of grass to create the design. I have also introduced primary colours to lift the stripes and make it zing. 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 the individual leaves of grass. This is a method of dying and embossing plastic I developed myself.  Every detail of the flowers and leaves are captured so they are like a fossile or a memory of each blade of grass. 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.

The construction of the necklace was inspired by Victorian jet necklaces which were made using links.  This statement chain necklace evoke both a contemporary and a vintage feel, appealing to mothers, sisters, colleagues and friends alike. I hope that the wearer will not only enjoy them as jewellery but also review their appreciation of the natural world.
