Flower Heads

About this project

A series of jewellery based on the sculptural forms of flowers. I especially like the aesthetic created when the petals start to fall away from the flower head, creating long, loose curves.
I wanted to add colour to these pieces and the vintage plastic I had been experimenting with worked perfectly. I have tried using modern acrylics but the colours felt too bright and harsh. Vintage plastics, such as Bakelite and Casein, come in far more subtle hues which contrast beautifully with the silver
