Dark Blue Ocean Wave And Marine Debris Bangle
We have hand made this dark blue ocean wave and marine debris bangle using discarded pieces of fishing net and frayed marine rope cleared out of our local waterways.
The blue from the frayed marine rope encased in clear bio resin, gives this one off cuff / bangle a strong ocean theme, furthermore complimented by a scattering of small shells and hand carved waves. Added into this marine tangle of synthetic waste is a piece of dark green fishing net. The range of man made and natural materials in this bio resin bangle adds a sense of cluttered debris we subsequently forget is present in our oceans.
A Dark Blue Ocean Wave Bangle With Marine Debris That Carries An Environmental Message.
Incorporating debris and shells collected from local beaches as well as tangled and frayed rope found in our waterways, this dark blue bangle 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 Dark Blue Ocean Wave Bangle With Marine Debris
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.
