Sue links the natural world with the man-made by marrying acrylic with plants to produce beautiful and individual acrylic contemporary jewellery. Her work is a celebration of the organic and the inorganic, the industrial and the natural.
Each piece is individually handmade using real flowers and leaves to create the designs. The plants and weeds that grow in front gardens, wastelands, in hedges and along paths are a rich source of material. Sue collects, dries and presses the leaves and flowers and then uses them to create the designs using a ‘fossilising’ process that she has developed herself. The leaves perish in the process so each piece is unique as all leaves and flowers differ from each other.
