Fishing Net and Marine Debris Bangle.
We hand made this fishing net and marine debris bangle using discarded fishing net and icro plastics as well as reclaimed fishing tackle.
The green fishing net encased in clear bio resin, gives this one off cuff a green and ocean feel, furthermore complimented by a scattering of thin plant branches. The simple, yet complimentary colours in the resin adds a touch of ocean simplicity to an otherwise serious eco message attached to this bangle.
A bangle that carries an environmental message.
Incorporating debris and plastics collected from local beaches as well as small branches from marine plants found in our waterways, this bangle showcases man made waste.
Hand collected by both volunteers and recreational dive groups, the plastic waste we use 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.
