Beautiful Jewellery Created From Ocean Plastic Pollution.

House of Halos Sustainable Philanthropic Jewellery House.

 Committed to keeping our oceans clean.

House of Halos conducts regular beach clean ups of North East Scotland coastlines disposing of vast amounts of washed ashore ocean plastic pollution. Everything from fishermen ghost netting, cigarette lighters, straws, plastic bottles, ear-plugs, burst balloons, plastic cutlery, shoes but within the ocean plastic pollution we source our “secret jewels”…… plastic bottle tops. By hand process we commence a vigorous cleaning and re-melting process making every single recycled ocean plastic bead truly one of a kind. Wear House of Halos jewellery with pride knowing you are part of a sustainable movement working towards ocean plastic solutions and not its pollution. Together we can make a difference, each time you visit your local beach pledge to yourself to pick up and place in a bin just 3 pieces of ocean plastic pollution.

House of Halos combines the finest 925 sterling silver jewellery findings to compliment our recycled ocean plastic pollution beads. We passionately believe jewellery should be designed and created to last. Our sustainable philanthropy jewellery collections are solely for the preservation of the planet for future generations to inherit so we very proudly design and create jewellery collections which are simple yet striking but with a prolific purpose and story behind each collection.
