This Perspex Art Jewellery cuff is made using wild Passion Flower leaves . I collect dry and press the leaves. Then heat the acrylic and press the leaves into the surface. I then use them like a stencil to apply the colours. The Passion Flower leaves are then peeled off to reveal the design. This is a method of dying and embossing plastic I developed myself. I call it ‘fossilised’ due to the fine detail which it is possible to capture on the embossed surface so they are 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.
