Bangle Made With Re Purposed Fishing Braid.
We hand made this bangle with re purposed fishing braid, to showcase the discarded man made and synthetic garbage found on our beaches and in our rivers.
This pretty piece also incorporates pieces of pale blue and green plastic and small sea shells in a clear, plant based resin. Small flakes of gold leaf have also been added to give this dainty piece a sense of luxury.
We’ve deliberately kept this bangle simple in its composition and inclusions in order to draw attention to what man made trash can be found under the waves.
A Bangle Made With Re Purposed Fishing Braid That Carries An Environmental Message.
Incorporating a pieces of hard plastic cleared off a local beach, this bangle carries an eco message about man made waste.
Hand collected by both volunteers and recreational dive groups, the synthetic waste has been featured as a deliberate environmental statement.
Did you know? 8 million tons of plastic goes into our oceans, waterways and also our beaches every year? Here are a few facts about these plastic wastes
To be as friendly as we can to our environment, we only use a plant based resin, which has a huge 77% plant base.
Care of your Bangle
Resin does gradually yellow with time due to exposure to UV. With this in mind, we send you your bangle in its own bag. We suggest storing it away from light in a dry place when not being worn.
To clean your bangle, simply wipe it over with a soft cloth.
