Unconventional, Ethical And Vegan Necklace.
We had so much fun hand making this unconventional, ethical and vegan necklace from repurposed marine debris. Using recycled cast netting for the necklace cord, we then added a sea star pendant. This quirky piece is made using some small pieces of micro plastic washed up on a local beach embedded in clear bio resin. To add depth to the sea star, swirls of green translucent dye are added in the background, while repurposed glass beads, are attached to the cast netting, all on stainless steel wire.
An Unconventional, Ethical And Vegan Necklace With An Eco 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 with pieces of micro plastics encased in clear bio resin.
The length of the cast netting necklace can be shortened by simply tying knots in the cast netting [ see photo gallery]
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.
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, though, 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.
