Amazing Bangle Made With Trash From the Ocean
This amazing bangle made with trash from the ocean has been hand crafted using a selection of recycled and reused plastic debris cleared off local beaches.
Its simple shape belies the complexity of the materials used to create it. With an unusual selection of frayed marine rope, cast netting and metal fishing tackle, this bangle acts as powerful statement about the amount of man made rubbish found along our beaches. Added into this bangle is a scattering of small sea shells as a natural foil to all the man made debris, floating within a clear bio resin shape.
We have deliberately kept this bangle simple. By focusing on the rope, netting and fishing tackle, we have prioritised drawing attention to the impact plastics have on our oceans and seas across the world.
As a result, this bangle makes no apology for showcasing the trash we leave behind in our oceans.

Hand Made With Love
Because we hand make each of our bangles, you may find slight imperfections.
This may be due to something in the resin sitting close to the surface and creating slight ripples or waves in the surface of the resin.
It may be that the micro plastics react with the resin and consequently cause slight clouding in spots.
There may even be a slight or small dimple caused by an air bubble.
We believe all these features show that as a result each of our pieces is hand made and therefore not produced in a factory or by machine. They also make each piece unique and quirky.
Care Of Your Amazing Bangle Trash Bangle.
Resin does gradually yellow with time due to exposure to UV. With this in mind, suggest storing it away from light when not being worn.
To clean your bracelet, simply wipe it over with a soft cloth.
