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.

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.
