Materials are hand picked, preserved and created into something natural and wearable.
It has been created using a bio resin finished with sterling silver fittings and hangs on a hand twisted cord with adjustable bead.
As these pieces are created with protecting the environment in mind, Bottled Earth jewellery is made with an Epoxy Resin made with renewable biological resources. This bio epoxy is a revolution in bio resins. Made with renewable biological resources (organic vegetable waste) and an amazing 77% bio content, it is the best most environmentally friendly bio resin ever developed. The first bio resin that is BPA free!
Each necklace is created with real materials. I recommend that they not be left in direct sunlight or to be worn in the waterthis includes swimming or in the shower, to insure the integrity of the piece.
