Vegan Bangle With An Underwater Scene .
We have hand made this vegan bangle with an underwater scene using a selection of reclaimed and also recycled materials embedded in bio resin.
The plastic sea anemones or coral are reused pieces of plastic marine rope which have been positioned as they’re in an underwater scene along with pieces of marine fern. Translucent blue and green dye have been added to give a sense of the ocean and ocean floor, while small flakes of gold leaf float through the scene.
A Bangle that carries an environmental message.
Collected from our beaches, marine debris, especially pieces of frayed and worn plastic marine rope are key features in this fashion statement piece.
Incorporating debris and man made waste collected from local beaches this bangle also features sea fern which was caught up and tangled in among fishing line and netting. All these inclusions have been used to showcase man made waste.
Hand collected by both volunteers and recreational dive groups, the plastic and debris has been featured as a deliberate environmental statement.
Did you know? 8 million tons of plastic goes into our oceans, waterways and also our beaches every year? Here are a few facts about these plastic wastes
Hand Made With Love
Because we hand make each of our bangles, you may find slight imperfections.
This may be due to something in the resin sitting close to the surface and creating slight ripples or waves in the surface of the resin.
It may be that the micro plastics react with the resin and cause slight clouding in spots.
There may even be a slight or small dimple caused by an air bubble.
We believe all these features show that each of our pieces is hand made and not produced in a factory or by machine. They also make each piece unique and quirky.
Care of your Vegan 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.
