Recycled Plastic?

I am often asked whether my jewellery uses recycled materials. Well, the answer is that I do try to use as much pre-used polypropylene as possible, but I do occasionally buy new sheets, so I do not advertise it as "recycled". The technique I have developed makes it possible to use every tiny scrap of plastic, so it is a "no waste" process.

Fair

My next fair will be with Tea Green Events on Sunday 11th December. The exhibition is in Kibble Palace (one of the glass houses) in the Glasgow Botanical Gardens. This is a lovely venue and there will be loads of fantastic makers over the weekend.

Stronger Than It Looks

My new process allows me to make paper-thin layers of fused plastic, which I put together to make my jewellery. The raw material, polypropylene, is extremely hard wearing and waterproof. Although my pieces appear fragile, they are actually stronger than they look.
