Bangle With An Australian Carpet Python Shed.
We have hand made this bangle with an Australian carpet python shed by using part of a python shed found on a small farm on the Sunshine Coast hinterland.
This simple and dainty piece showcases the beauty and complexity of a snakes skin and scales. If you look carefully, you can see how the shed mirrors each scale shape perfectly. Paper thin, brittle and fragile when dry, the snake shed is a challenge to embed in resin. Once in contact with the resin, the shed changes from stiff and paper thin to fluid and soft. Added to this, the surface of the shed, also creates numerous bubbles in the resin. Unless removed, these can later form small bubble sized pits on the surface of the bangle.
A small flake of gold leaf has also been added to compliment the shed.
All of this is consequently encased in a clear plant based resin, which therefore allows the inclusions to be showcased to their best advantage.
Bangle With An Australian Carpet Python Shed Carrying An Environmental Message.
We usually incorporate debris, such as the pieces of hard plastic, collected from local beaches in our jewellery, but in this case we simply wanted to celebrate the beauty of Nature through this shed.
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
What Is This Snake Shed Bangle Made From?

Care of your Bracelet.
Our resin doesn’t yellow over time, but to keep it in excellent condition, we do suggest keeping it out of direct light when storing it. With this in mind, we send you your bracelet in its own bag.
And finally, to clean your bracelet, simply wipe it over with a soft cloth.
