Environmentally Conscious Bangle In Shades Of Blue.
We have hand made this environmentally conscious bangle in shades of blue to represent the oceans across the world. By using a selection of reclaimed and also recycled synthetic materials embedded in bio resin, our aim is to draw attention to plastic waste in our oceans.
The frayed blue plastic cord has been positioned as if it’s floating underwater, while shells and pieces of hard blue plastic are scattered around as if waves and currents are at play. Added to this effect are stylized waves hand carved in free form around the centre. Translucent blue and gold dye have been added to give a sense of the ocean and ocean floor, while flakes of gold leaf float through the scene.
An Environmentally Conscious Bangle In Shades Of Blue That Carries An Eco Message.
Collected from our beaches, marine debris, especially pieces of frayed and worn plastic marine rope and hard plastic pieces are the key features in this fashion statement piece.
Incorporating debris and man made waste collected from local beaches this bangle also features gold leaf flakes and shells. All these inclusions have been used to showcase man made waste.
Hand collected by both volunteers and recreational dive groups, the plastic and debris has been featured as a deliberate environmental statement.
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
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 Bangle
Resin does gradually yellow with time due to exposure to UV. With this in mind, we send you your bangle in its own bag. We suggest storing it away from light when not being worn.
To clean your bangle, simply wipe it over with a soft cloth.
