Red Hand Crafted Bangle With Marine Debris.
This red hand crafted bangle with marine debris has been made using pieces of reclaimed and also recycled materials embedded in bio resin.
The scattering of white pieces of hard plastic in translucent resin, gives this one off bracelet an rich and exotic feel. Recycled small shells, as well as a mix of gold leaf flakes and red dye gives this statement bangle a scattering of colour.
A Red Hand Crafted Bangle That Carries An Environmental Message.
Collected from our beaches, marine debris, including discarded micro plastics are key features in this fashion statement piece.
Incorporating debris and man made waste collected from local beaches as well as pieces of gold leaf flakes, this bangle showcases man made waste.
Hand collected by both volunteers and recreational dive groups, the plastic and debris 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
Though a lot of resins gradually yellow with time due to exposure to UV, the bio resin we use doesn’t. Just to make sure it stays in excellent condition, however, 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.
