Environmental Necklace With Recycled Marine Debris
Meet Aukai, an environmental necklace with recycled marine debris.
We handmade this gorgeous environmental necklace from recycled marine debris, including pieces of discarded fishing line, reclaimed marine rope and also a single wild lorikeet feather. Collected from our beaches and waterways, the marine debris we use is deliberately intended to carry an eco message.
An environmental Necklace With An Eco Message.
Recycled marine rope makes up the Aukai’s cord and also forms the foundation for this unusual piece of ethical and wearable art. Added to this is a bundle of knotted, stained and frayed marine rope which twists and coils itself around the white base rope. Nestled in among this frayed jumble of rope are small seed beads as well as some peridot beads. as a feature piece at the center of the necklace is a single wild bird feather.
Aukai is a lightweight and durable piece which won’t scratch or itch but may lightly tickle you with her fishing line.
Message From Aukai
My name is Aukai.
My name comes from the Hawaiian term for ” Explorer of the sea.”.
I’ve been hand made using debris collected off beaches along the Sunshine Coast, including bits of tangled and frayed marine rope, knotted pieces of nylon rope and also recycled fishing line.
I also have a single wild bird feather.
My base cord is soft and pliable recycled marine rope with everything else subsequently stitched or woven around it. Being slightly frayed and stained from time in the ocean, it additionally adds to the significance of my story.
My center piece features a knot of frayed and tangled marine rope, which Jo hand stitched in place as a statement about the impact of plastics on marine life.
I am totally hand made. There isn’t another necklace like me, so be reassured that when you wear me, you are truly making a fashion statement.
Jo has made me to be light weight and sturdy, so that I am both a fashion statement and an environmental statement.
I hope you have as much fun wearing me as Jo undoubtedly did making me.
Do you have a query or question?
Why not drop us a line? We’d like to hear from you
