Diamond Shaped Bangle With An Australian Wild Snake Shed.
We have hand made this diamond shaped bangle with an Australian wild snake shed by using part of an Australian carpet python shed found on a small farm on the Sunshine Coast hinterland.
Scattered among the pieces of snake shed, on the other hand, are bubbles embedded within the resin as a testament to the living wild snake which continues to lives happily on the farm where this shed was found. To add further colour to the bangle, small flakes of gold leaf have been scattered around. All of this is consequently encased in a clear plant based resin, which therefore allows the inclusions to be showcased to their best advantage. Added to this arrangement are slight patches of pale green, achieved by lightly adding a small amount of green dye.
A Diamond Shaped Bangle With An Australian Wild Snake Shed That Carries An Environmental Message
We usually incorporate debris, such as the pieces of hard plastic, collected from local beaches in our jewellery, but in this case we simply wanted to celebrate the beauty of Nature through this shed.
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
What Is This Snake Shed Bangle Made From?
We use an Australian made and patented bio resin, in order to reduce our impact on the environment as much as possible. The resin we use has a bio base of 77% and has a low VOC [ odourless and contains no solvents] and is PBA free. For more information, click here.
Care of your Bracelet.
Our resin doesn’t yellow over time, but to keep it in excellent condition, we do suggest keeping it out of direct light when storing it. With this in mind, we send you your bracelet in its own bag.
And finally, to clean your bracelet, simply wipe it over with a soft cloth.
