Jewellery shoot for the amazing Sue Gregor
Sue's jewellery is very contemporary, bold and colourful all of which I love and up my alley.
Sue Gregor is Bristol based and all her Jewellery is hand made in her studio based by Victoria Park.
Her work is not mass produced. Each piece is individually handmade using real flowers and leaves to create the designs. The wild plants and weeds, that grow in front gardens and wastelands, in hedges and along paths, are a rich source of material. She collects, dry and press the leaves and flowers and then use them to create the designs using a process she has developed which she calls ‘fossilized' as the fine detail and even the veins of the leaves show on the embossed surface of the acrylic. The leaves perish in the process so each piece is unique (as all leaves and flowers differ from all others - they are a memory of each individual leaf). Sue would like to convey the narrative of nature claiming back the man-made so she can confront the synthetic with the wild, by using plants, to produce beautiful and individual acrylic jewellery.
