Meet Aria, An Ethical And Eco Warrior Necklace.
We have hand made this ethical and eco warrior necklace from marine debris using recycled man made materials, including discarded netting and also fishing line. Marine debris, such as discarded yabbi pot netting, fishing line, and a piece of hard plastic, are key components in Aria’s makeup. All these components have subsequently been collected from our beaches and waterways.
Hand made Aster, an ethical necklace from marine debris.
Hand made from discarded fishing line which has been braided to form her base cord, Aria also has recycled beads, driftwood and some bamboo fibre. She subsequently represents an underwater scene.
Aria is a dainty and lightweight piece that won’t scratch or itch but simply tickles you with her fishing line. Made to be sturdy, her feature pieces have, in addition, all been hand stitched into place.
She doesn’t scratch at all as she has been carefully hand made to be comfortable and also lightweight to wear.
A message from Aria.
My name is Aria and this is my story.
My name is taken from the scientific order, Actiniaria, which includes sea anemones as a group within it.
There are 1,000 species of sea anemones found throughout the world’s oceans and they range in size from half an inch to 6 feet across. Closely related to coral and jellyfish, sea anemones are also stinging polyps made up of a sticky foot called a pedal disc [ used to attach itself to rocks etc.], a cylindrical body and tentacles surrounding a central mouth.
Though sea anemones are not directly endangered by the actions of humans, human impact on their environment may potentially cause problems in the future. To date, however, there is no specific data on this.
I am a miniature picture depicting an underwater scene, with 2 sea anemones as the centre piece.
I hope I meet you soon.
Do you have a query or question?
