“Living in a city, people might think I’d be hard-pressed to find inspiration for my leaf and floral jewellery – far from it. The plants and weeds which grow in the front gardens and wastelands, in hedges and along paths are a rich source of material. The plants which have struggled to succeed in an urban environment give me inspiration on a personal level and for my jewellery”.
“I use a process I developed while studying for my MA – I call it ‘fossilized plastic’ – which is inspired by a modernist approach; I link the natural world with the man made by marrying acrylic with the plants I have gathered, to produce beautiful and individual pieces. My work is a celebration of the organic and inorganic, industrial and natural”.
