New Stuff: Fishing Gear Cuff Bracelet

pleasant-bay-master

Chatham artist Gin Stone is giving new life to commercial fishing gear by creating hand-dyed cuff bracelets. After gathering retired gear from the Cape Cod Commercial Fishermen’s Alliance, she cleans and dyes the line. Stone then glues the material to recycled denim with a high-temperature glue gun, cuts them into sections and creates an armature with recycled wire. Stone says her artwork is “helping to raise awareness of the plight of our oceans, now increasingly filled with discarded gear which entangles marine life.”

Price: $35 – $60
