Jeweler Britta Boeckmann doesn’t have a plan when she designs her wood-fragment and resin accessories. Instead, she uses the natural form of the wood fragments to define the shape, fusing them with colored and sometimes glow-in-the-dark resin to make her jewelry. Boeckmann then smooths each piece with sandpaper and applies varnish to give it lustre.
Boeckmann moved from Germany to Melbourne, Australia, in 2013 after finishing a degree in industrial design. That same year, she joined Wangaratta Woodworkers studio and spent three days per week mastering the skills necessary for her work. In January 2014, Boeckmann founded BoldB jewelry and began to sell her pieces online.
