Cuff Bracelet Made From Unconventional Materials
We hand made this cuff bracelet made from unconventional materials as a deliberate way to raise awareness about man made marine debris. Discarded fishing net, frayed fishing rope and small plastic beads have all been added into this one off piece.
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 plastic jewellery beads as a contrast.
Deliberately setting the plastic jewellery beads above the smooth surface of the resin cuff draws attention to twisted and frayed rope embedded in the resin. The simple use of translucent green dye also adds to the effect.
A Cuff Bracelet Made From Unconventional Materials That Carries An Environmental Message.
Incorporating debris collected from our beaches, this green 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.
