Steam Punk Bangle With Marine Plastic
We have hand made this steam punk bangle with marine plastic collected off local beaches. Sporting an eco message, this bangle features unexpected marine debris to achieve a steam punk feel.
Each piece of plastic in this bangle has been hand collected and washed before being used. We have used a collection of kinked plastic fishing cord, rusty stained cast netting and a selection of rusty fishing tackle pieces to achieve the right effect. Swirls of silver translucent dye add a sense of metal to what otherwise would be a simple and plain colour scheme.
As a nod to the oceans across the globe, we have hand carved a series of simple waves along the outside edge of the bangle.
Made particularly with recycled marine plastics, this bangle aims to promote an awareness about the volume and dangers man made plastics cause in our ocean and seas.
A Steam Punk Bangle With Marine Plastic That Carries An Environmental Message.
Collected from our beaches, marine debris, especially pieces of plastic cord, netting and metal tackle, act as key features in this bangle.
Hand collected by both volunteers and recreational dive groups, the plastic pieces have been featured as a deliberate environmental statement.

Care Of Your Steam Punk 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.
