Red Bangle With Repurposed Plastic Pollution
This red bangle with repurposed plastic pollution has been hand crafted using pieces of red plastic debris cleared off local beaches.
Its simple, yet stylish shape, allows the materials used in it to subsequently be effectively showcased and featured. The key part of this bangle is the tangle of frayed red vegetable netting and pieces of hard plastic.
We deliberately encased these pieces in clear bio resin so the synthetic materials could be clearly shown.
By focusing on the plastic trash, we have prioritized drawing attention to the impact plastics have on marine life in our oceans and seas across the world.
As a result, this bangle makes no apology for showcasing the trash we leave behind in our oceans.
A Red Bangle That Carries An Environmental Message.
Collected from our beaches, the pieces of discarded plastic and frayed netting are the key features in this unusual piece.
Hand collected, cleaned and processed, the piece has furthermore been featured as a deliberate environmental statement.

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 Red Bangle With Repurposed Plastic Pollution
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.
