Eco Mermaid Necklace With Re Used Plastic.
We hand made this eco mermaid necklace with re used plastic using recycled ocean debris, including some cast netting and a piece of hard plastic. Collected from our beaches and waterways, the piece of reused plastic carries a polymer clay face of a mermaid while the caste netting is used for the necklace.
Eco Mermaid Necklace With Re Used Plastic That Carries A Message.
Recycled caste netting makes up the necklace’s cord and also forms the foundation for this unusual piece of ethical and wearable art. Added to this is a polymer clay face resting on a piece of worn and battered grey plastic. We have hand carved waves and lines into the plastic to give a sense of the ocean.
Sent to you in her own bag, this necklace also brings her own personal touch to your fashion accessory wardrobe.
She is a lightweight and durable piece which won’t scratch or itch but may lightly tickle you with her caste netting.
Want to change the length of the necklace?
Though this necklace is quite short, we thought you’d like to see what can be done with some of our longer necklaces. Check out our photo gallery to get some ideas about ways to knot the netting and make them shorter. Add as many knots wherever you like along the netting necklace. You can also make a feature of them or subtly hide them at the back of the necklace near the findings.
Care of your net and resin necklace.
To keep your necklace in excellent condition, we send it to you in its own bag so you can store it away safely when you aren’t wearing it.
The caste netting may discolour if worn frequently against the skin. DON’T worry – simply hand wash it in cool soapy water, rinse and leave to dry.
