Slow Fashion And Marine Necklace.
We really enjoyed making this slow fashion and marine necklace using repurposed marine debris. Using recycled cast netting for the necklace cord, we then added a sea star pendant made with repurposed microplastics, all cleared off local beaches.
Slow Fashion And Marine Necklace With A Message.
Recycled cast netting makes up the necklace’s cord and also forms the foundation for this unusual piece of wearable art. Added to this is a pendant in the shape of a sea star that includes brightly coloured pieces of microplastic. To add a slightly unusual and unconventional touch, we have added recycled glass beads into the mix as well.
This necklace also brings her own personal touch to your fashion accessory wardrobe.
She is a lightweight and durable piece which furthermore won’t scratch or itch.
Want to change the length of the necklace?
Because it has been made with soft cast netting, simply tie a knot in it. Add as many knots wherever you like along the necklace. You can even make a feature of them either side of the pendant, or subtly hide them at the back of the necklace near the findings.
What Resin Do You Use?
In line with our philosophy of being as kind as possible to our environment, we use an Australian bio resin that is:
- Low VOC (is odorless and contains no solvents)
- BPA free (contains no bis-phenols)
- UV stable (clear application does not yellow)
- Utilizes waste glycerol
- 100% renewable source

Care for your necklace
The cast netting can also be gently hand washed with soapy water if it becomes dirty or stained.
Avoid submerging the stainless steel findings in warm water as this may soften the small amount of jewellery glue used to hold the cast netting in place.
Simply polish the pendant with a soft cloth if the surface becomes dirty.
