This recycled, plastic, contemporary cuff is made using the leaves from a box hedge, which I found in Victoria Park, near my house. 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 botanic jewellery a modern feel. 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 fossil or a memory of each unique flower or leaf.
I choose quite ordinary plants and weeds to create my unusual and unique jewellery designs. These botanical statement earrings evoke both a contemporary and a vintage feel, appealing to mothers, girlfriends, sisters and friends alike. I hope that the wearer will not only enjoy them as jewellery but also review their appreciation of the natural world. I set out to create a marriage between the industrial and the organic. I want to create a feeling of celebration between material and subject.
