Retro Streaks Surfite Resin Necklace with Sterling Silver Chain
You know I love the beach and anything related to it! And so keeping up with the beach vibe, I made this pendant from Surfite material to compliment our Beach Collection.
"Surfite" is a playful name for recycled surfboard resin. It's a man-made by-product of the surfboard glassing process: hand-mixed resins are poured over the boards, and the excess spills over the sides and onto the shop floor, where it builds up, layer by layer, color by color.
I'm so excited to be working with this recyclable material. This piece was cut from a slab and then shaped and polished by hand. The piece hangs from a 23 inch silver plated chain, and the resin is smooth to the touch; it has been sanded using several different sandpaper grades.
The piece measures a total of 1.375 inches tall and 0.875 inches wide at its widest point.
