Ethical And Hand Made Bangle
This ethical and hand made bangle has been made using a panel of recycled and reused plastic fishing net.
Its simple yet stylish selection of marine debris acts as powerful statement about the amount and variety of man made rubbish found along our beaches. Added into this bangle is a scattering of gold leaf flakes, all floating within a clear bio resin shape, dyed with swirls of translucent blue and green dye.
We have also added a scattering of small sea shells to act as a natural foil to the man made rubbish and a band of hand carved, stylized waves to represent our oceans and seas across the world.
Predominantly made with panels of pale blue fishing net, this bangle makes no apology for showcasing the trash we leave behind in our oceans.
Caste in a ” wonky” shape, this quirky bangle has one end wider than the other, so it can sit comfortably on the wrist as well as further up your arm.

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 consequently 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 as a result each of our pieces is hand made and therefore not produced in a factory or by machine. They also make each piece unique and quirky.
Care of your ethical and hand made bangle .
Resin does gradually yellow with time due to exposure to UV. With this in mind, suggest storing it away from light when not being worn.
To clean your bracelet, simply wipe it over with a soft cloth.
