Contemporary And Ethical Cuff Bracelet
This contemporary and ethical cuff bracelet has been hand crafted using a selection of man made trash found washed up on local beaches. Discarded plastic vegetable netting, pieces of hard white plastic and rusty pieces from fishing swivels combine in this unconventional bangle. A layer of white dye, and flakes of gold leaf finish this unique piece off.
Because we reuse plastics and man made debris in our jewellery as a way to raise awareness about the amount of plastics in our oceans, we couldn’t resist adding in a few small shells as a contrast to the synthetic materials.
A Contemporary And Ethical Cuff Bracelet That Carries An Environmental Message.
Incorporating debris collected from our beaches, this bio resin cuff showcases man made waste.
Hand collected by both volunteers and recreational dive groups, the man made 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
Hand Made With Love
Because we hand make each of our bangles, you may find slight imperfections.
This may be due to an inclusion such as netting sitting close to the surface and creating slight ripples or waves in the surface of the resin.
It may be that the plastic reacts with the resin and causes 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 each of our pieces is hand made and not produced in a factory or by machine. They also make each piece unique and quirky.
Care Of Your Cuff Bracelet
Resin may gradually yellow with time due to exposure to UV. With this in mind, we suggest storing it away from light when not being worn. To clean your bangle, simply wipe it over with a soft cloth.
