Sue Gregor - Blue Skeleton Leaf Ring

Blue Skeleton Leaf Ring

£58.00

 Inspired by Victorian butterfly ring jewellery, these handmade designer perspex and sterling silver rings are pinned, like butterflies in collection cases, and are made using real skeleton leaves.

My unusual plant jewellery is created by collecting, drying and pressing the individual leaves. The recycled perspex 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. Once this texture and colouring process is completed the acrylic is then backed with silver leaf to mimic the sheen of a butterfly wing.

I choose quite ordinary plants and weeds to create my floral art jewellery designs. The edges are faceted and hand polished. This botanical statement ring evokes both a contemporary and a vintage feel, appealing to friends, colleagues and fun-seeking fashionistas alike! I hope that the wearer will not only enjoy them as jewellery but also review their appreciation of the natural world. Each one is individual and unique, making these botanical beauties both contemporary and classically vintage. A real party item and ideal gift!
