A Contemporary Marine Debris Necklace As Wearable Art That’s Both Ethical and Environmental.
We lovingly hand made this contemporary marine debris necklace as wearable art using recycled man made waste, which included frayed marine rope and pieces of hard plastic. Collected from our beaches and waterways, marine debris, including the discarded plastic cap / top which holds the arrangement, are the key components in this necklace’s makeup.
Discarded Cast Net Necklace Has A Message.
Recycled caste netting makes up the necklace’s cord and also forms the foundation for this unusual piece of ethical and wearable art. Doubled over and then threaded through the pendant loop, as well as the stainless steel findings at the ends, the caste netting can be lengthened, shortened and even removed to be hand washed if it gets soiled. This versatility allows you the option of removing the pendant and add it to another necklace if you wish.
Want to change the length of the necklace?
Check out our photo gallery to see how we’ve knotted it to the findings, or how you can even tie knots along the caste netting as well. 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.
