These sea glass bangles are part of Seapig's ABSOLUTE RUBBISH collection!! Every element of this item is recycled/upcycled in some way. The sea glass is white glass collected from the shores of Anglesey whilst carrying out beach-cleaning, and the colour that is seen through the glass is created by the addition of a layer of plastic/foil rubbish that we also retrieved from the shore. We just love the way that rubbish and polluting items can be removed from the environment and used to create these beautiful pieces of jewellery!
The silver in these bangles is also eco/recycled silver and so you can wear these items in the knowledge that you are supporting various planet-friendly practices. They are also great conversation starters; to have those important discussions about pollution, plastic rubbish and how we might all change our consumer habits to be a little more environmentally conscious.
A really striking piece of white sea glass, combined with a weathered piece of foil wine bottle neck top, set in a custom, handmade sterling silver bezel and attached to a handmade sterling silver bangle. The bangle is made with 2.5mm silver wire, and has a hammered finish. This bangle is approximately 8.2" circumference/63-64mm diameter and so is suitable to fit over a smaller than average sized hand. The piece of glass is approximately 11mm long and 15mm wide at widest.
All of our handmade items such as these are sent to Birmingham Assay Office for hallmarking, and this item carries a 92.5 stamp, the Birmingham Assay Office Mark and also our own Sponsors Mark (SPS for Seapig Seaglass).

Sea Glass and Beach Rubbish Bangle (Small)
The colour in this bangle has been created by the addition of beach rubbish to a piece of white sea glass. The rubbish is weathered and as such there may be slight changes in colour shade throughout the bezel. We think this adds to the uniqueness, and we hope you like this slightly marbling effect.
