These handmade, designer, perspex & sterling silver earrings are made using the actual leaves from a rubber plant. 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. The edges are faceted and hand polished. These botanical statement earrings evoke both a contemporary and a vintage feel, appealing to friends, mums and colleagues alike. I hope that the wearer will not only enjoy them as jewellery but also review their appreciation of the natural world. British fashion - grown and handmade in the UK.
