Green And Black Eco Bangle
We have hand made this green and black eco bangle using fishing net and pieces of hard plastics cleared out of our local waterways.
The green from the fishing net encased in clear bio resin, gives this one off cuff / bangle an organic theme, furthermore off set by a scattering of small pieces of black plastic. Added into this tangle of synthetic pieces are small fish scales as a nod to the marine life threatened by this debris. The range of man made and natural materials in this bio resin bangle adds a sense of cluttered debris we subsequently forget is present in our oceans.
We couldn’t help ourselves and had to hand carve a series of waves along one edge to enhance the marine theme.
A Green And Black Eco Bangle That Carries An Environmental Message.
Incorporating debris and plastics collected from local beaches as well as tangled fishing net found in our waterways, this green bangle showcases man made waste.
Hand collected by both volunteers and recreational dive groups, the plastic waste 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, quirky and genuinely one off.
Care Of Your Green And Black Eco 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.
