Description

These individually made earrings are made using actual leaves from a Whitebeam tree.

They are made using my own method of dying and embossing plastic which I call fossilized 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.
