Meet Perci, a Handmade Piece of Eco Friendly Jewellery.
We hand make our eco friendly jewellery using recycled marine debris, including fishing line, hard marine plastics and recycled sinkers collected from waterways.
Pale blue coloured fishing line, collected from a local council recycle centre, forms Perci’s base cord or necklace. Attached to this hangs her key statement piece made from a piece of marine plastic and weighed with 2 recycled sinkers.
Perci’s length is adjustable. Simply slide her pendant up and down the cord to shorten or lengthen the necklace. Have it as a chocker with her pendant nestling near your throat or slide it closer to the sinkers to make a longer necklace. It’s your personal choice.
Perci is sent to you with love and also brings with her a personal message.
She is a lightweight, easy to wear piece, which consequently won’t scratch or even itch. Made to be sturdy, Perci is also comfortable to wear.
A message from Perci
My name is Perci and this is my story.
I have been named in honour of the fish order Perciformas, which makes up approximately 41% of all bony fish in the oceans. Perciformas is made up of over 10,000 species, many of which are an important source of food for humans.
The waste that litters our oceans threatens all marine life, including Perciformas. Some of them may directly ingest small pieces of plastic or plastic fibers mistaking them for our natural foods. Others, who are carnivorous, may eat the smaller fish which have already ingested man-made waste.
The irony for me is that the order Perciformas forms an important part of the food supply for humans worldwide. We are feeding the very humans who are killing us!
Do you have a question or query you’d like to ask about Perci?
Why not drop us a line. We look forward to hearing from you.
