Purple & Taupe Skeleton Leaf Recycled Plastic Cuff Bracelet 45mm

US$79.00

Description

This skeleton leaf contemporary jewellery cuff is made using the skeleton leaves from a rubber tree. I collect, dry and press the leaves, heat the acrylic and press the leaves into the surface. I then use them like a stencil to apply the colours. 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 ‘fossilised plastic’ due to the fine detail which it is possible to capture on the embossed surface so they are similar to fossils.
For the subject I choose quite ordinary plants and weeds, as well as textiles 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. Made from 100% recycled plastic.

I have been making acrylic contemporary jewellery with wild flower designs since 2005. My inspiration is to share what has cheered me up and got me through the tough times.It all started at a difficult period of my life when I was going through a tough time. In order to cope with it I started try to empty my head of everything and just be in the moment. I become aware of what was around me. Listen to the sounds and notice where I was. I became enormously comforted by how beautiful the world is. So I started working with plants leaves and flowers and developed this method of capturing the detail of the plants . I wanted to share this with people who wear my jewellery.
