Black And White Ethical Necklace
Meet Poly, a black and White eco necklace.
We handmade this quirky ethical necklace from recycled marine debris, including a knotted and frayed piece of reclaimed marine rope and also a scattering of beads. Collected from our beaches and waterways, the marine debris we use is also deliberately intended to carry an eco message.
A Black And White Ethical Necklace With An Eco Message.
Recycled marine rope makes up the Poly’s cord and also forms the foundation for this unusual piece of eco and wearable art. Added to this as well is knotted, stained and frayed marine rope which twists and coils itself around the white base rope. Nestled in among this frayed jumble of rope are also small seed beads which furthermore add a sparkle to the two toned necklace.
Poly is a lightweight and durable piece which won’t scratch or itch but may lightly tickle you with her fishing line.
Message From Poly
My name is Poly.
My name comes from the Polymer- which is the name for a wide range of plastics.
I’ve been hand made using debris collected off beaches along the Sunshine Coast, including bits of tangled and frayed marine rope, knotted pieces of nylon rope and also recycled fishing line and seed beads.
My base cord is recycled marine rope with everything else subsequently stitched or woven around it. Being slightly frayed and stained from time in the ocean, it additionally adds to the significance of my story.
My center piece features a knot of frayed and tangled marine rope, which Jo hand stitched in place as a statement about the impact of plastics on marine life.
I am totally hand made. There isn’t another necklace like me, so be reassured that when you wear me, you are truly making a fashion statement.
Jo has made me to be light weight and sturdy, so that I am both a fashion statement and an environmental statement.
I hope you have as much fun wearing me as Jo undoubtedly did making me.
