Hand Made Marine Debris Brooch
This hand made marine debris brooch, has been crafted from man made plastics waste collected off beaches.
Recycled hard plastic, along with frayed pieces of plastic cord and reused fishing line, have gone into hand making this one off brooch as a way of raising awareness about plastic pollution.
Collected off our beaches, marine debris, including the pieces of hard plastic and also the cord, were all used in making this ethical and bespoke jewelry.
What Is This Hand Made Brooch Made From?
We have deliberately used marine debris, in this case, pieces of hard plastics and synthetic cord to craft this statement jewelry brooch. Washed up on our beaches, each piece of marine debris we use has been hand collected, cleaned and then arranged to create this unique one off piece.
All of the plastics we collect are at different stages of deterioration and wear and are therefore prone to showing stains, marks, splits or cracks. This makes it challenging to work with and also keep the plastics from breaking down further.
Why Do You Make Brooches from Man-made Marine Debris?
Deliberately used in making this one off brooch are materials which threaten our environment. We make each piece of our jewelry in a creative way to act as a vehicle for carrying a message as well as prompting awareness. Using pieces of plastic without disguising or changing them enables us furthermore to showcase our message.
Raising awareness of the impact of plastics on our environment is above all why we use these materials the way we do.
