This Perspex Art Jewellery cuff is made using wild fern leaves . 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 colours. The fern 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.
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. Made from 100% recycled plastic.
