Eco Friendly Oval Bangle.
We have hand made this eco friendly oval bangle with discarded marine plastic and also reclaimed and recycled fishing tackle.
Encased in bio resin, the pieces of nylon fishing net, along with the micro plastic pieces sets the theme for this dainty bangle. Complimented by the addition of some metal fishing tackle reclaimed from local waterways, this bangle is a distinctive and unique piece.
A Bangle that carries an environmental message.
Collected from our beaches, marine debris, including discarded bits of fishing net and also micro plastic pieces are key features in this fashion statement piece.
Incorporating debris and plastics collected from local beaches, especially metal fishing swivels found in our waterways, this bangle showcases man made waste.
Hand collected by both volunteers and recreational dive groups, the plastic and metal waste has been featured as a deliberate environmental statement.
Hand Made With Love
Because we hand make each of our bangles, you may find slight imperfections.
This may be due to something in the resin sitting close to the surface and creating slight ripples or waves in the surface of the resin.
It may be that the micro plastics react with the resin and cause 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 Bracelet.
Resin does gradually yellow with time due to exposure to UV. With this in mind, we send you your bracelet in its own bag. We suggest storing it away from light when not being worn. To clean your bracelet, simply wipe it over with a soft cloth.
