Vegan Bio Resin Cuff With Woven Fibre
We have hand made this vegan bio resin cuff with woven fibre using a woven string bag cleared off the eastern side beach of Fraser Island [ K’Gari].
This woven string bag is a traditional hand woven bag from Papua New Guinea and is called a ” Bilum”. Somehow it found its way from Papua New Guinea to Fraser Island and is now a feature in this bangle.
Because we reuse plastics and man made debris in our jewellery, as a way to raise awareness about the plastics in our oceans, we couldn’t resist trying to reuse this bag as well.
The simple use of a panel from this bag aims to showcase that trash and rubbish from one country doesn’t stay there. Ocean currants and tides move our trash silently along the ocean floor.
A Vegan Bio Resin Cuff With Woven Fibre That Carries An Environmental Message.
Incorporating debris collected from our beaches, this vegan bio resin cuff showcases man made waste.
Hand collected by both volunteers and recreational dive groups, the man made waste 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 an inclusion such as netting sitting close to the surface and creating slight ripples or waves in the surface of the resin.
It may be that the plastic reacts with the resin and causes 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 Ethical Bio Resin Cuff With A Rope Bow
Resin may gradually yellow with time due to exposure to UV. With this in mind, we suggest storing it away from light when not being worn. To clean your bangle, simply wipe it over with a soft cloth.
