Sue Gregor - Confetti Recycled Perspex Long Drop Earrings - Blue & Orange

'Confetti' Recycled Perspex Long Drop Earrings - Blue & Orange

£48.00

This handmade designer recycled plastic earrings design was inspired by floral confetti - I saw at a wedding - flowers and leaves pouring down. I wanted to make a design with a feel of movement.  I think stained galss was also in the back of my mind. It has two types of leaves and three varieties of hydrangea flowers!

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 necklace evokes both a contemporary and a vintage feel, appealing to aunts, nieces, friends and colleagues alike. I hope that the wearer will not only enjoy them as jewellery but also review their appreciation of the natural world.
