Vegan Eco Necklace With Recycled Marine Debris
Meet Nerice, a vegan eco necklace with recycled marine debris.
We handmade this gorgeous vegan necklace from marine debris, including pieces of discarded fishing line, fishing twine and also reclaimed marine rope. Collected from our beaches and waterways, the marine debris we use is deliberately intended to carry an eco message, along with the bio resin shell which is filled with pieces of micro plastics.
Vegan And Eco Necklace With An Eco Message.
Recycled marine rope makes up the necklace’s cord and also forms the foundation for this unusual piece of ethical and wearable art. Added to this is a bio resin pendant in the shape of a shell which nestles among a tangle of fishing twine. To keep this shell company, a number of small seed beads and a plastic pearl also sit among the tangle of twine.
She is a lightweight and durable piece which won’t scratch or itch but may lightly tickle you with her fishing line.
Message From Nerice
My name is Nerice.
My name comes from the Greek term ” From the sea.”.
I’ve been hand made using debris collected off beaches along the Sunshine Coast, including bits of tangled fishing twine, marine rope and also micro plastics.
My base cord is soft and pliable recycled marine rope with everything else subsequently stitched or woven around it. Being slightly frayed and stained from time in the ocean, it additionally adds to the significance of my story.
My center piece features a bio resin shell, which Jo handmade and moreover embedded micro plastics in, as a statement about the impact of plastics on marine life. The shell is also nestling in a tangle of fishing twine.
The tangled and frayed gill fishing twine, the shell and all the beads have also been hand stitched. This adds to the scene of tangled man-made waste.
I am totally hand made. There isn’t another necklace like me, so be reassured that when you wear me, you are truly making a fashion statement.
Jo has made me to be light weight and sturdy, so that I am both a fashion statement and an environmental statement.
I hope you have as much fun wearing me as Jo undoubtedly did making me.
Do you have a query or question?
