Vegan Marine Debris Bangle .
We have hand made this vegan marine debris bangle using a selection of reclaimed and also recycled materials embedded in bio resin.
The plastic fish is a reused soft plastic fishing lure and has been positioned as if it’s swimming in amongst the frayed blue fishing net. Pieces of frayed, reused marine rope, along with small flakes of gold leaf give this one off bangle both a marine and ocean feel all at the same time.
A Bangle that carries an environmental message.
Collected from our beaches, marine debris, including soft plastics and fishing net are key features in this fashion statement piece.
Incorporating debris and man made waste collected from local beaches as well as metal fishing tackle found in our waterways, this bangle showcases 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 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.
