Day 25

I'm continuing the theme with today's earrings.
In treating the plastic as though its a found fragment of something much older and more valuable and setting it as a 'gem', I think I'm getting over the hurdle of viewing plastic as a worthless throw away material, which is what I've been battling with whilst making these pieces. I love what I can do with the plastic, but hate what it stands for.  I've always used  more natural and what I view as honest materials in the past like silver and textiles, but I think this plastic might be winning me over!
