Funky And Unusual Statement Bangle
This funky and unusual statement bangle has been made using pieces of recycled and reused frayed plastic cord, hard plastic and discarded fishing tackle.
The selection of synthetic waste materials has been used to draw attention to the man made debris polluting our oceans and beaches. Added into this bangle are feathers and small shells, all sitting in clear resin. Blue translucent dye has also been added to give a sense of the ocean.
Focusing on the contrast between natural and synthetic inclusions, we have aimed at drawing attention to the impact plastics have on our oceans, seas and wild life across the world.
As a result, 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 Funky And Unusual Statement Bangle With A Conscience.
Resin does gradually yellow with time due to exposure to UV. With this in mind, we suggest storing it away from light when not being worn.
To clean your bracelet, simply wipe it over with a soft cloth.
