A Contemporary, Unconventional And Unusual Necklace With Unconventional Materials Carrying an Eco Message.
We have hand made this contemporary, unconventional and unusual necklace with unconventional materials to create a piece of wearable art using recycled man made trash, including a pieces of frayed marine embedded in bio resin. Collected from our beaches and waterways, marine debris, including the discarded rope and caste netting necklace are the key components in this necklace’s makeup.
This Contemporary, Unconventional And Unusual Necklace Has A Message.
Recycled caste netting makes up the necklace’s cord and also forms the foundation for this contemporary and unusual piece of ethical and wearable art. All the inclusions in our pieces are re purposed trash cleared off the beaches as a way to raise awareness about the impact of plastics on our environment.
Want to change the length of the necklace?
All you simply do is add knots to the caste netting at any point along it – at the centre, along the length of it or close to the findings. Check out our photo gallery to see how we’ve knotted it. Add as many knots wherever you like along the netting necklace. You can also make a feature of them or subtly hide them at the back of the necklace near the findings.
Care of your net and resin necklace.
The caste netting may discolour if worn frequently against the skin. DON’T worry – simply hand wash it in cool soapy water, rinse and leave to dry. Try to keep the glue in the end caps dry as warm water may soften the small amount of jewellery’s glue we use.
