An original ELK technique for making resin has resulted in a contemporary new design called terrazzo. The bangle is a stretch style with panels of matte finish resin and blonde wood strung on elastic cord for an easy fit.
Material & Makers Notes
This piece of jewellery is made entirely by hand by Zai Design Hive, a family run operation in the Phillipines. We have been working with Gil and his team since 2016. They specialise in making jewellery from quality resin, wood and other mostly natural materials. All pieces are made by skilled craftspeople in a factory that we visit annually. The wood is sourced from sustainable plantation timbers and the resin pieces are made by pouring liquid resin into silicone moulds which is then left to cure. Each piece is then cleaned, drilled and polished. Resin is extremely durable, light and isn't affected by liquids.
Size and Fit
Internal diameter approximately 5.5cms.
Resin can be wiped clean with a soft dry cloth or cleaned with cold water if needed. The surface can scratch if exposed to abrasive surfaces and lighter colours can be affected by sunscreens, make up or other liquids - especially if tinted. Avoid water and other liquids on wooden beads, do not store in direct sunlight. If milky spots or marks appear due to contact with liquid they can be removed using ELK's jewellery wax or another suitable natural polish. For best care we suggest wiping your piece down after wear.
