This fresh green Cuff is made using whitebeam leaves. I collect, dry and press the leaves then heat the acrylic and press the leaves into the surface. I use them as a stencil to apply the colours, which give my botanical jewellery a contemporary feel. The skeleton leaf is then peeled off to reveal the design. This is a method of dying and embossing plastic I developed myself. I call it 'fossilized plastic' due to the fine details, like fossils, that are captured on the embossed surface.
I choose quite ordinary plants and weeds to create my floral designs. I hope that the wearer will not only enjoy them as jewellery but also review their appreciation of the natural world.
