Repaired wood jewellery by Marcel Dunger


Spotted at Tent London last month, German product designer Marcel Dunger reuses pieces of broken maple wood to create beautiful handmade jewellery. Manufract is comprised of brightly coloured bio resin which is poured into the broken wood and once hardened, made in to contemporary pendants, earrings and rings. The inspiration for the project is the self-healing process of trees. Once the tree is injured, it bleeds resin to enclose the wound. With no two pieces being the same, each is unique and is given its own individual name. Pictured above – Lara.
