Colorful And Up Cycled Necklace.
We had so much fun hand making this colorful and up cycled necklace with repurposed marine debris. Using recycled cast netting for the necklace cord, we then added a pendant made with a panel from a synthetic string bag found washed up on the beach at K’Gari [ Fraser Island].
A Colorful And Up Cycled Necklace With An Eco Message.
Recycled cast netting makes up the necklace’s cord and also forms the foundation for this unusual piece of wearable art. Added to this is a pendant made using a panel from a traditional Papua New Guinea string bag made with nylon string.
You can wear this necklace with either side of the pendant outermost. With the clear bio resin, the pendant can therefore be viewed either side.
This necklace also brings her own personal touch to your fashion accessory wardrobe.
She is a lightweight and durable piece which furthermore won’t scratch or itch.
Want to change the length of the necklace?
Because it has been made with soft cast netting, simply tie a knot in it. Add as many knots wherever you like along the necklace. You can even make a feature of them either side of the pendant, or subtly hide them at the back of the necklace near the findings.
Care for your necklace
The cast netting can also be gently hand washed with soapy water if it becomes dirty or stained.
Avoid submerging the stainless steel findings in warm water as this may soften the small amount of jewellery glue used to hold the cast netting in place.
Simply polish the pendant with a soft cloth if the surface becomes dirty.
All resin may yellow slightly with time and exposure to light, so your necklace needs to be stored out of direct light when not being worn.
