Sepia Vetch cuffs made with wild plant called Vetch that I found growing on waste ground - I love finding beautiful plants in derelict places. After looking at old sepia photos, I decided to use this colour range. I imagine these being worn with a taupe outfit looking really fab! .
I collect, dry and press the leaves. Then heat the acrylic and press the leaves into the surface. I use them like a stencil to apply the colours. The vetch leaf is then peeled off to reveal the design. This is a method of dying and embossing plastic I developed myself. I call it 'Fossilised Plastic ' as the fine detail that's captured on the embossed surface is similar to fossils.I choose quite ordinary plants and weeds to create my designs. I hope that the wearer will not only enjoy them as jewellery but also review their appreciation of the natural world.
