A Vegan And Ethical Necklace Made From Marine Debris.
We had so much fun hand making this vegan and ethical necklace using marine debris. Using recycled cast netting for the necklace cord, we then added a pendant made made with frayed marine rope and pieces of hard plastic collected off local beaches. Flakes of gold leaf and swirls of translucent green dye finish off this unique piece.
A Vegan and Ethical Necklace With A Message.
Recycled cast netting makes up the necklace’s cord and also forms the foundation for this unusual piece of vegan, ethical and wearable art piece. Added to this is a pendant with marine debris encased in bio resin which represents the threat plastics pose to marine life in our oceans.
You can wear this necklace with either side of the pendant outermost. Choose which perspective resonates with you. With the clear bio resin, the pendant can be viewed either side. Please look at our photo gallery to see the pendant from 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.
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.
Care for your necklace
The cast netting can 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.
All resin may yellow slightly with time and exposure to light, so your necklace comes with its own bag.
When not wearing it, please keep it in the bag in a dark place to reduce exposure to sunlight.
