Unusual Eco Activist Necklace With A Message.
We had so much fun hand making this unusual eco activist necklace with a message by using repurposed marine debris. Using recycled cast netting for the necklace cord, we then added a pendant made using tiny pieces of synthetic nylon marine rope washed up on a local beach.
An Unusual Eco Activist 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 with frayed, yellow and maroon nylon marine cord, all encased in clear bio resin. The yellow cord slightly sits proud of the other inclusions, which adds to its unusual make up. Though it sits proud, it is all covered in resin [ please refer to photos in gallery]
Adding to the colour scheme are small swirls of green dye.
You can wear this necklace with either side of the pendant outermost. With the clear bio resin, the pendant can therefore be viewed either side.
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.
An added bonus is that you can re adjust and shorten the necklace by simply tying the cast netting in knots. Please refer to the photo gallery for examples.
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.
All resin may yellow slightly with time and exposure to light, so your necklace needs to be stored out of direct light when not being worn.
