SURFITE Jewelry, Surfite Earrings, Recycled Surfboard Resin Jewelry

Details

"Islamorada" Surfite Earrings are made from recycled surfboard resin. Colorful hardened layers of excess resin pool on the floor under a surfboard during creation. Traditionally, seen as waste, we intercept these discarded chunks before they hit the landfill, and then we sort, chop, grind, sand, drill, and polish them into shiny jewels for our affordable eco friendly jewelry. (For more details read below: "What is Surfite?")

These are ONE of a KIND and can NEVER BE DUPLICATED.

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

What is SURFITE?
"Surfite" or "Surf Stone" is a byproduct of the creation of surf boards. During the 'glassing' process a thick layer of fibgerglass cloth is laid over a foam board blank. A heavy coat of epoxy resin is poured to saturate the top and what doesn't soak into the cloth spills over the edges and dries into layers on the floor. These hardened layers of resin eventually accumulate and need to be chipped up and removed to make space to work. These chunks, sadly, are most often thrown away as 'waste.' But, wait...

We found that we could recycle these jagged colorful fragments and create meaningful expressive jewelry. So, we have chosen to support these surfboard makers and buy their refuse that was destined for the dump which also helps protect the environment. Double whammy! The chunks are sliced with lapidary tools, grinded and shaped into cabochons, and polished to a high gloss. This is extremely tedious work since studio debris also falls into the mix, like tape, dirt, sawdust, and even stir sticks, so a great deal of time is spent inspecting and sorting the raw material.

The resulting "surfite" faux gemstones are super shiny little candies that can be colored vividly like tropical fruit or offer an array more gently hued like an Earthtoned landscape. Some layers will be thicker, while others that formed as giant icicles down the side of the glassing table will be stretched thinner. The striations are random, always exciting, and never the same. Each surfite gem is special and unique, making our jewelry pieces truly captivating one of a kinds!

Caring for your surfite jewelry: Just like a surfboard surfite is extremely durable but not indestructible and may show signs of wear and tear in time so consider dings you gain along the way proof of your adventurous spirit. Enjoy the journey, scratches can easily be buffed back to a high shine.

Your piece may have tiny pits from trapped air bubbles, which is indicative of genuine surfite. We do not use any sealer polish, so we guarantee your surfite to be pure resin only- the high gloss sheen comes solely from old fashioned elbow grease. Each piece is created by hand one at at time.
